May Flowers and Other Happenings

Hello.  Yes.  It's been awhile.  Not much.  How 'bout you?

In the spirit of my oldest daughter's usual way of posting on Facebook, I thought I'd start with a song.  The lyrics are not quite accurate though.  It has been busy around here.

Spring is in full force.  I'm determined to make the front bed of the house look at bit more respectable.  I think I'm off to a good start.   The front bed is divided into three sections.  Along the garage I put holly bushes and daylilies.

Under the dining room window, I put digitalis and hostas.

The planters on the front porch have gerber daisies and pansies.

Now I have to tackle the front section.  This will involve pulling out a lot of perenials that never grew as I had envisioned them, relocating some daylilies, planting a couple more hostas, and spreading mulch.  Pictures will come later. 
Earlier this month, Kristin was invited to prom.  I think she and her date made a very lovely couple.  What do you think?  They went as friends.  I'm told they aren't dating.  I'm not totally convinced the feelings are platonic. 

Friday was Trisha's Confirmation.  My sister Karen stood in as her sponsor.  After the ceremony we all went out to dinner at Buca de Beppo. 

I'm biased, but I think I have the most wonderful children.

Here are Ed, Trisha, and me.
