Just saying hello to my blogger friends and to let you know I am keeping up with all of you,although not writing for a little while.

This is my wreath that I made.  I am not a "wreath maker" but had a lonely turkey who wanted to go to the craft show.

We all know the most important thing that Jesus told us was to love one another and he wasn't kidding!  Happy Monday y'all.

Found It!

There are always big needles in my haystacks, so I am posting this.

Sunday,  John (age 10, great-grandson) made a statement...Life is not easy.  I said back to him,
John, you hit the nail on the head.   A little while later he said, GG what does that mean about the nail?

Sometimes I forget someone old as me speaks another language.  Happy Monday.

My flowers in September

Quick Fire hydrangea, beautiful all year.
 Black eyed susan vine.  I nursed it all year, finally it is blooming.
 Tall ageratum from Graye's Greenhouse.  I love it.
 Most insane cockscomb
 The one to watch, it is now about fifteen inches across.  It stands up even after wind and downpours.
 Solidago fireworks
bumper crop of Sweet Annie...
 Bulls Blood Beets and you can see turnip greens behind.
and a surprise flower this morning.  A white Iris.  These are some of my favorites.  We had lots of flooding last night .  Our streets do that in heavy rain . One guy went canoeing!  Hope your day is blessed with flowers.

Apple time

We went to Apple Charlie's on Sunday..

They have pony and hay rides , apple picking $20 a bag, farm animals and a flea market. You can walk through and watch them make the cider.   It was a beautiful day and there was a big crowd.

Do you know .. how much is a peck?  We didn't, but I wanted some Mutsus (the big green ones). a peck bag was $5.00.

  We also got Empire, McIntosh, Gala, Delicious for $1 a bag of about 8 or 9.  No bad ones.

Donuts were $10 a dozen and cider $10 a gallon.  At first glance I would think the prices were a
little steep, but when you see how many workers it takes to put on the show, I guess  they have to be.

I only had one donut.  Happy Monday everyone.

Honoring 9/11 victims in Taylor, Michigan

I didn't get to see him at this busy intersection.  I would have like to have said "thank you".

John has changed his status...

Jaxon is the little brother, that makes me the big brother.  We are so happy, came to us on Friday, the 24th. Jaxon is my fourth great-grandchild.
