Anyone else out gardening?

I have been neglecting my blog (but trying to keep up with yours)! But I have a really good excuse... I've been spending a lot of time outside getting my fingers nice and dirty in the yard. Until the sudden heat of this week, we've had perfect weather to get out and spruce things up a bit. It sure feels good! I hope all of you are enjoying outside kinds of things too.

When weeding, the best way 
to make sure you are removing a weed 
and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. 
 If it comes out of the ground easily, 
it is a valuable plant.

Happy Independence Day

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence 
every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers 
who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, 
but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, 
the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. 
 You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.

A thought for this first day of July...

If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds. I would pick more daisies.
