Hello My friends,
I have returned from a very lovely and hard week at the same time. I had fun but it is all so bittersweet.

My father was putting on the tough act while I was there but I could tell it was a struggle. Mom was killing herself not wearing her cast and running around. I got very angry with her but she is 73 yrs old. What can a youngin say to someone that old and set in their own ways?
Here you will see my folks and daddy's garden. He planted this all himself by laying in the dirt to do it. That is how he gets his crop and weeds it. He lays in the dirt as he can't do it any other way. That is one stubburn man!!!

Look at his flowers. They are beautiful. This is where I grew up and I wouldn't change a thing. His sunflowers are just lovely and something that always makes me think of him. See the little bee?

Well I have alot of catching up to do and auctions projects to do. I did get some stitching done while I was home. I have to finish up the edges and put a back on it. I will show you all that in a day or two.
Have a good one. Hugs,Pea
