Science Fair Excitement

Yesterday the Science Guy came to Bella's school and astounded them all with his show and tell regarding weather. Bella was picked to help with static electricity and was so excited!  She was still excited about it all that evening and was laughing while telling me all that happened.  It was very interesting to hear her explanation about tornados and how they swirled around!!!

Hellebores are Blooming


Snow Dance

Pink Frost

Onyx Odessey

Berry Swirl

The weather has been so warm for January and so far in February.  We have so many flowers, bushes and trees budding and coming up.  It could very well be a bloomless spring if we get a hard frost or freeze which is very likely from now till the middle of April.

My first pieced quilt block ever is ready to be sewn together.  I joined the En Provence Mystery Quilt that Bonnie Hunter - Quiltville's Quips & Snips Blog had that started at Thanksgiving and just ended last week.  It was a lot of fun and I sure learned a lot about making blocks.  Now to get all the blocks sewn and the quilt made!!

It has been so hot and humid this year for far too long with very little rain.  We spend most of our time watering to keep everything alive instead of pulling weeds and we can sure tell it. The weeds seem to keep growing no matter what!!!

Rose Lily Oriental Lily

Last week Mom, I and our friend Lynn went to the UT Summer Celebration in Jackson, TN. After having a blast there we visited 2 nurseries in the area. The rose lily which is an oriental lily I found at Morris Nurseries.  It was blooming the pink bloom when I bought it and the white one opened up this week and is turning a lighter pink.  It is gorgeous!!!!!  What a steal at $5!
