Flowers I planted today!

I love Spring, everything is blooming and so green. I especially love going to greenhouses. We
are so fortunate in the area where I live to have several greenhouses. One of my favorites is owned by
a young mennonite family. They have such beautiful things and work so hard. I think one reason I love going
there is that they have 5 young children and they come and talk to me. The mom looks like a teenager,
and has 4 daughters and the last one is a boy, they are like stairsteps, all young. They are so adorable.

Today they had their open house, they have door prizes and grilled hotdogs with her homemade garden relish and all kinds of different baked cookies, the little girls just love waiting on me and they always tell me that they helped bake the cookies.

I will share some of the flowers that I got and planted today, I especially like making mini flower gardens
and putting different flowers together.
I can't wait to see them grow. Wishing you a lovely day and beautiful Spring.

  4. Everything looks wonderful Lecia, I agree with Amy nothing better than to be able to play in the dirt and then sit back and watch them grow. I am looking forward to just be able to sit out on my deck in the morning and have my coffee out there, while watching all the little birds and listening o them chirpping.......
    Hugs Mary

  6. I used to visit an Amish greenhouse we had nearby. It was my favorite. They have since moved on but I really miss their farm and their kids and animals as well. I enjoyed your flowers. It rained the past two weekends here so maybe next weekend. :)

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
