What a wonderful day

Chancy and I had a wonderful day Easter. One of my daughters, one of my sons and his wife came and spent most of the day with us. They brought food and it was yummy. Chancy enjoyed a few bites of my chicken.


My daughter wanted her picture taken in front of the azalea but the blooms were the same color as the pink on her dress so she moved over in front of the Bridle Wreath bush. 

I love this bush my dad gave it to me back in the early 70's and it has bloomed beautifully every year. 

I ordered top soil to spread on places in the front yard that have become low and it was delivered today. I am anxious to get it put out on the yard but we have heavy rain coming over the next few days so I will wait until the rain comes and goes. 


Chancy has already started his gardening but he will be ready to help me when I get started spreading the soil. I will have to send him to his special garden spot a few times I am sure...he will want to help me but he will want to dig and I want to spread and fill. lol

I hope you all have a wonderful May.

    1. Thank you. He has a hard time waiting but I have to say he is being a good boy about it. You have a great rest of the week also.

  3. What a great picture of your daughter in front of that bush. I'm so glad that spring is here. I'm waiting for the flood to recede some more so I can dig like Chancy. Of course Chancy thinks he is helping you with yard work. He took a great picture also.
    Have a great day. The sun is beautiful this morning.
    Hugs, Julia

    1. Thank you. Sometimes he really does help me...he loves carrying and stacking limbs and sticks. I am so glad you have beautiful sun. We are still getting heavy rain and flash flooding. We really need some time to dry out. Enjoy your time with sunshine sweet Julia. Hugs

  4. Good Morning! Your daughter is so pretty and I love the bush and its special connection to your Daddy. Chancy looks like he is loving spring. I hope your rain won't be heavy and you can soon get out and work in the yard. God bless. xoxo

    1. Thank you so much. Yes, Chancy is loving spring if only the rains would stop so we both could get out and enjoy it. Rains and flash flooding for today and the next two days. Hugs and blessings. Enjoy the remainder of the week will be by soon to visit your blog.

  5. the only dog we had that liked to dig, was Baby Girl... she could dig all the way to China in 60 seconds flat... all over the yard. I love the bridal wreathe behind your daughter and she is beautiful also... good idea to wait until after the rain. I have been doing rain dances, but so far no rain

    1. Thank you so much. Chancy is pretty good about only digging where he is allowed to...once in awhile though he just can't help himself and I have to escort him to his garden spot. lol I so wish I could send you some rain. It has been raining with flash flooding off and on for weeks here. Raining and flash floods today and the next two days. We need drying out time badly...we have already had more rain this year than we normally get the whole year.

    1. The bush was very small when my dad gave it to me I have never trimmed it and it has grown to this size in 47 years. Sorry about your mugo pine. Happy day to you too. Hugs

  7. Dogs are like children (and on rare occasion, a husband), they want to help but the enthusiasm exceeds the ability to do the job. Your daughter is beautiful!

  10. Having family visit is always fun. There is always good food, one way or another. It was sweet of your guests to bring the food to you.

  11. You are right about that. My son and his wife bring me food often which I appreciate since I no longer enjoy cooking.

  12. YOU, Mags, are the only one besides myself and anyone else from Roanoke VA who says Bridal's Wreath! Around here they say Spirea. As soon as I saw your daughter standing there I know that was Bridal's Wreath. Chancey, you have already started? Well, you'll be busy as your mom gets busy with her soil reading. You can look it over later and give your supervisory comments to her.
    My present Bridal's wreath was planted in 1972. It is as large as yours ,and blocks my view out of the drive way.

  13. It sounds like you had a lovely Easter! The photo of your daughter in front of the bridal wreath bush is pretty :)
    When I was little, we would take the small flowers from our bridal bush and use them as wedding flowers for our Barbie doll!
