When we closed our store, Country Junction, our oldest employees along with ourselves all got matching peony plants. I miss those women so much. The plant is a nice reminder.

Our ‘Ghetto” pond. Remind me to tell you about it sometime. Let’s just say learn from our mistake: There is no such thing as a free hot tub!

This was the Queen’s tricycle when she was just a princess. The Husband repainted it for The First Kid, then The Second Kid had a bunch of miles on it. It’s parked here for it’s retirement.

Variegated Snow-On-The-Mountain. This was just a small patch when we bought the house. I keep digging it up and transplanting, no maintenance. A lazy girl’s dream!

Rhubarb from my dear old Uncle

Years ago my neighbor was over in the yard telling me about boiled rhubarb. She raved how her family absolutely loved it! Well I fell for her story and gave her rhubarb to take home with the promise of bringing me back some of her glorious concoction. The way she made it sound I expected it to be better than sex and chocolate combined…..I was so excited….my mouth was watering…..

Dear friend let me save you the torture of trying this for yourself, the only thing I can tell you is this:

It was like trying to swallow boiled cat hair!!! Don’t do it! Don’t even consider it!

This message was brought to you by M.A.B.R.(Mothers Against Boiled Rhubarb)
