A jumbo jet that my parents purchased for the grandkids. I brought to the house as it is really a neat toy. I know a couple of our grandkids that will like to play with it.
A must keep plate is this one with the calendar on it. The scene in the middle is so wonderful but the age of the plate is amazing. The year of 1913 is printed among the foliage of the flower decoration edging the plate. This came from my wife's side of the family who lived in the Grimes area. The potential of it coming from either side of her grandparents is possible. I have posted this plate before on my blog but that was many years ago.
My wife mentioned in the winter time when we bought the house that she would like the garden to be her project. As we looked at it this morning, there are a few perennials scattered in the planter. It looks like the former owners had an area in the front to put annuals. It will be a while before we can start to do that ast I think our frost danger could still be a possibility.
I did dig up a fern leaf peony on Wednesday and brought it here in a bucket. I think I will be sharing the blooms of the plant soon as it will stay in the bucket for a while. It was wilted at first but when I dumped water on it it perked right up. I would like to bring hosta and iris to the new home with other specialty plants. That will have to fit in with all the insane things that I need to get done. It will be an all summer project to ready the house for sale.
Barney visited his doctor today to get a follow up booster shot. He was good at getting in the car the very first time but the rest of the getting out and getting back in seemed a little stressful for him. He is doing ok now an is napping peacefully on the living room rug now.
I appreciate your stopping in today. Our days look more like spring every day and I hope yours do too.
