A "Colorful" Post

I spent some time today over at The Garden Bell's blog. She is an avid crocheter and has made some beautiful blankets, throws, and many different items.

She is also very creative AND an excellent photographer. I am relatively new to her blog but can't wait to see it this spring/summer. I've seen some pics of her garden and it is beautiful! Flowers everywhere and I do love flowers! If you get a chance, why don't you stop by and visit with her a while. Oh, and check out the music collection she put together for her brother's birthday (40th, I think). It's awesome!

5day

... Hard freeze warning in effect from 1 am EST /midnight CST/ to 9 am EST /8 am CST/ Wednesday...
Meanwhile back home, it has warmed up some. But I have enjoyed the cold weather for a change. It's been a good while since we've had a hard, cold winter and I think it is good for us. It is supposed to help with controlling pests and weeds (at least that's my understanding). I'm talking about something I'm not absolutely sure about--but like Rentman says, "Don't let the truth get in the way of telling a good story!" That sounds just like him! The forecast for tonight is 22-25 degrees F! Brrrr...I'll just have to snuggle up closer to my man!

Guess what I'm doing tomorrow?

Master Gardener Class

Wednesday, Jan 13 8:00a to 12:00p

The Houston County Extension office will be hosting a 12 week Master Gardener Volunteer Training Course. The purpose of this program is to train volunteers to be community educators by providing science based information on growing and caring for plants in their landscapes and gardens. Subjects include gardens, fruits, turfgrass, landscape design, weed control, and much more. To become a certified Master Gardener, participants will be required 50 hours of volunteer service to to the community.

I am excited to be learning more about our Earth. It is so interesting to me and I've loved gardening for a very long time. I think we get back a portion of what we invest. Nature and God reward us well with beautiful birds and flowers! We are rewarded with many other things, as well! I love going to Callaway Gardens and especially to the Butterfly House. There's just something about watching those little beauties fluttering around and lighting on people or flowers or plants. We all need to take better care of this amazing planet!

Well, blogland friends, it's late so I'm signing off for the evening. Take care and be sure to visit The Garden Bell. Good night and God bless! (Do you remember who used to say that at the end of each show?)
