Leslie, what are naked ladies?    Ginny

 

 

 

Ginny, they are a lily

Thanks for clarifying Leslie. I was trying to figure out what were 3inches tall naked ladies, and honestly I just couldn't get it.  I figured it was because my head was still fuzzy from  this cold.  I had never heard that term for a lily.  I would love to see a picture of this kind of lily.  I have a few variety, but I'm sure I don't have that one!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!  We don't celebrate, and that is my idea, my birthday is next week and I don't want him "wasting" money on Valentine's Day!  :-)  Going shopping w/my kiddos.  We usually do on Thursdays.  Mostly just groceries.  Like to help out w/the little ones.  She has an 8 month old and then KK who will be 4 shortly.  She does great w/o me, but I like to tag along.  :-) 

Did ok bowling yesterday, had one bad game but the other 2 I made up for it!  :-D

Have a great day everyone!

Dawn:
What is great is I let her use "real" paint, and she only got a little on her hands and nothing on anything else!  She will be 4 next month, so I think she did very well!  :-)

Pictures please!

Beautiful sunshiny day! Love this. Cold, but with this happy sun, who cares!

Not headed to Bible Study this morning. My hives have totally taken over my body (.including places I would rather NOT mention), and Jim's chin is the sixe of an orange. There is a full pus pocket in there. I am worried about his other two teeth. He called the Dentist yesterday and they said it takes 7 days for the antibiotics to work. Nay, Nay, I say. It take 48 to 72 hours for antibiotics to work! I will call again today. This will be the 5th day on these antibiotics. If he get blood poisoning, they are in a world of hurt.

We were talking about our car yesterday, having just walked past the neighbor's house with the destroyed pick up in the driveway. Our car is a '06 Fusion, in great shape so far. High milage though. Paid for. If we had to buy another car, we could't no money for that and not enough income to add a car pmt. It worries me. I asked Jim what we wwould do. He slowly shook his head and said "Buy a horse, I guess." We don;t have the money for hay, or enough land for a horse. So, I guess a scooter with a side car and a trunk!!

All that said. I bought an Ott lite this a.m. I needed one with a clip for my cutting table. They had one on sale, onlin only, today for $19.99! So, who can pass up a bargain when what you need is on sale?! My sewing room is so dark at night, even with the ceiling light on, that I can't see to cut fabric on that table. So, this will work great.

Have a wonderful day.

Angele,

Here is pic of my Naked Ladies ( sometimes called Surprise Lilies) from last year.  The leaves come up in the spring, then die back. Later in the year, late August around here, the bloom stalk shoots up and blooms.  Ours are about 20 inches tall when they bloom. The only color I've seen them in is the pale pink.

Gorgeous flowers, Max.  Looking out my window it's hard to believe I'll be seeing flowers in bloom in a few weeks.  Snow everywhere!

Oh, Max, a beautiful touch of Spring in dreary winter. Thanks for posting this picture.

We have woods in back that, sort of, block out views of the houses in the neighborhood behind us. Well, they have chickens and a loud rooster, living in a horrible, thrown together , chicken house of sorts. I decided that, this Spring, I want to take down most of the smaller trunk trees and plant large evergreens, hollys and some lower flowering shurbs. Gonna take a bunch of trees and shurbs. But, if I get the big ones in this year, then the other can come later. Can't wait for Spring. Once Jim feels better we can start cutting trees.  I love using a chain saw.

Beautiful Flowers, Max!  As with Marie, it is hard to imagine flowers right now; however, we have had a surprising warm up in our usually cold valley.  We had a warm wind blow through again yesterday (48 degrees and windy) so we are getting more and more bare spots in the snow cover...especially on the south facing areas.  All the vegetation is still looking pretty sad from being under the snow for 3 months, but the deer are finding little shoots of grass coming up and are having a feast (small, but at least it is green).  For those of you wondering, the cross-country trails are still in good condition thanks to being packed and groomed continuously during the winter.  However, the more warm weather we have, the sooner the ground will warm up and we will start losing trails.  So, our weeks of skiing may be coming to an end...sigh.

Sukochi,

so sorry about hives! Know you enjoy bible study so and hate to miss  it.  I am concerned about Jim, some improvement should be seen with antibiotics by now. He may need a different one or a second one in addition. That has to be so miserable for him!

try not to think about the future and worrying so much. If / when car dies then you can worry but now it gives you hives with no solutions. Accept only what you can change!  You are making yourself ill. Remember you tell me God has a plan. So give it to him to deal with. 

Your latest postcardis beautiful. Maybe you could sell them on etsy.com. You are allowed to make a certain amt of money. 

I wouldlike to place your first order..i would like 10 postcards for Easter..perhaps a spring idea with multicolored eggs. Let m  ow what hey would cost, can be the same or diferent. Would like pastels with some fresh green grass.

Nan

Max, the picture of your naked ladies is beautiful.  I have read about lilies that act as yours do, but guess I never knew what the name was.   I wonder if the deer would be fooled by them not blooming when the plant had leaves?  Probably not.  They ate everything in sight last year.  Even things they had never touched before.     Ginny

Lajuan I'm  told I'm the #1 worrier .  Does caladyll lotion help its over the counter and comes in clear. My sil one year had the most odd rash drs. thought hives, then an asian disease but at the end she connected where she was staying had freshly painted that was it for her the fumes made her breakout in hives since that discovery she stays away from all paint and has never had another episode.  Hope this helps.
