I've added some different colored daffodils to our garden. I love this one with the orange center and ivory outer petals. I got several more bulbs last year and Kristi planted them for me in a big huge pot of ours and they came up and guess what? Not ONE of them has a bud! Just leaves! What?? So we have to wait a whole year to see what the flowers will be? Talk about anticlimactic! :-)
This is the second one of the new ones we planted at the base of the dark purple Lilac near our walkway to the deck.
The Star Magnolia is blooming. It's out by the country road we live on. I love this small tree.
See all the buds?
Kind of pretty against the blue sky, this tree sits next to a 70 foot tall Douglas Fir tree.
And for some indoor garden news.. the boys little garden has tomato flowers and tiny little tomatoes growing! Can you believe it? Kristi has this little bee shaped brush for pollinating the flowers. :-)
I just find growing tomatoes on the kitchen counter amazing.
Here is the Green Pepper blossoms and little peppers.
I have a new glass bunny. I was looking on Etsy and saw this one on the right, it had the original candy inside and the original stopper/label on the bottom that hold the candy in.
Here is the original label/stopper, they were made in the 50s, and I was born in 1949, so they are the same age as I am. LOL!
This one has the original pastel colored candy in it, not to be eaten, obviously.
I saw this adorable bird photo on Facebook and grabbed it to share with you.. this is a Cardinal and I adore them. But for some crazy reason they aren't found in Oregon. I wish they'd move here! LOL!
I've gotten a few more stripes added to my Woodland blanket. Dayle and I are ill with a virus/cold/flu thing. I'm missed swimming all week and also could not meet up with Gracie because I don't want her to catch this.
I wanted to share this Time magazine cover with you. These kids were just regular high school students a few weeks ago. But due to their school, Parkland, being attacked by a mentally unstable gunman and the loss of 17 innocent young students, these kids have turned into activists. I'm so proud of them! And they have inspired students all over America to take to the streets in peaceful protests. They are not asking to abolish the 2nd amendment, they are asking for gun sellers to stop selling military style assault weapons. I'm with them on this.
I forgot to share with you the results of my sleep test. In one hour I stopped breathing 167 times! Imagine! My baseline oxygen level was 84% and went down to 68%. Normal is 88%. SO, I qualified for a new bi-pap machine. Sheesh.
More rest is in the cards for today. I'm hoping to be on the upswing after this weekend. Do you have any fun weekend plans? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
