My Helper





My yard is really starting to come around. I find myself out there looking at everything several times a day. In fact Saturday morning John and I got up to go to a few yard sales and I find myself looking at everyone else's yard for idea's. It seems like everyday I have a new flower blooming. Sunday after church we worked in the yard, kids included. Hailey being Hailey wanted to plant something, basically anything she could get her hands on. She brings me this big weed. "Mama I plant this ok" Somewhere in the back yard I tell her. She starts to have a fit because she wants it around my flowers and whenever I tell Hailey No I swear she thinks it means whine more and Mom will give in. Hailey does not accept "No" for an answer. We are working on that but it is an every day struggle with her and I. So plant in hand she walks away or should I say stomps away. I thought that was pretty easy, she must be going to put it in the back yard, and I went back to weeding. A few minutes later John comes up to me and said I should go see what Hailey planted. I should have known that she would not give up so easy. She put her big beautiful weed right in front of my other flowers that I have been working on. "See Mama isn't it beautiful" What could I say, the girl is determined.....

The flowers look great. I have to say I think your yard is looking better than ours and we are in the flower business... By the way. There are a few houses by us that are family that have awsome perennial gardens if you ever want some ideas. Brad can help you with the names and if they'll grow in your yard.
