when my new dawn and explorer climber john davis, well I think that is what they sent me, bloom I will post pictures, they are just so full of buds right now I can’t wait, my blaze is full of buds too so  I will post it as well once they are in full bloom, which I cannot wait. oh yea my landscaping is coming along really well, you know it is just like a switch was pulled and I cannot seem to stop coming up with ideas and carrying them out, I keep saying this will be enough now I just have to maintain it and mow regularly then I think of something else I can do to spruce up the yard even better or something else I would like to grow in the garden or something, never happend like this to me before, also I keep saying today I will rest because I am so sore, but then I end up doing something then it leads to something else, not big mind you just little things that add up,, can one become obessessed? or am I just making up for lost time? it is like I can’t stop, help! lol, but when I look at my yard it is just so worth it, I did it myself, I actually accomplised something and seen through to the end (kept my attention and interest long enough to see it completed)if you knew me you would know my motivations and goals are not sustainable, I end up not doing it all the way or not starting it.  sometimes I wonder if I have or had adhd or something. or manic depression with emphasis on the depressed side of the coin more than the other. well I hope you enjoy the photos, now get out there and take pictures of pretty things will you and share them I am dying to see what others are doing in their yard, what they seen on the trails that sorta thing.

A Hug Can Save a Life

and they have the nerve to say their is no god, please, this is just to touching for words.

Karina's Thought

Twin girls, Brielle and Kyrie, were born12 week ahead of their due date. Needing intensive care, they were placed in separate incubators. Kyrie began to gain weight and her health stabilized. But Brielle, born only 2 lbs, had trouble breathing, heart problems and other complications. She was not expected to live.

 Their nurse did everything she could to make Brielle’s health better, but nothing she did was helping her. With nothing else to do, their nurse went against hospital policy and decided to place both babies in the same incubator.

 She left the twin girls to sleep and when she returned she found a sight she could not believe. She called all the nurse and doctors and this is what they saw (see the photos below). As Brielle got closer to her sister, Kyrie put her small little arm around her, as if to hug and support her sister.

more walk about/peach tree talk

my poor peach tree has the bad case of leaf curl, I might have to chop it down as I read about the treatments and it si too extensive and iffy to waste time or money, I read that red haven is one that is resistant so I will be getting a couple in the late summer early fall.  this really sucks after seeing such pretty flowers. I think it’s roots may hve hit a water pocket underground and is just to wet, makes sense it is a bit wetter on that side then the south side of my house. did get a couple of apple trees tho planted them last week. a yellow delicious and a gala. yummy. maybe i will post some pictures of them.

anyway here are some more pictures I took yesterday, anyone know what kind of bush this is? the flowers are softly sweet and it gets red berries on it and I love it, let me guess it is not native isnt it?
