Settling in...






















We're not completely moved yet, but we're settling in. Last weekend we bought flowers for the yard (and my tomato plant!). I thought I'd share the fun - we're just so pleased to have a home where we can plant flowers. I'm including a picture of Dr. M's ancient geraniums - he brings them inside each year before the first frost & babies them through the winter. And every year they reward us with their blooms. I think they'll like their new home too!

  3. Gorgeous!

    I was just thinking yesterday, "How do I winter geraniums?" I would love some tips from Dr. M.

  4. Those plants are pretty!

    And apparently the recliner is a fire hazard because all the stuffing inside the chair can make a fire worse and cause worse smoke damage. I don't know, I just listen to what they tell me.

  5. I can obviously see the care Dr. M has lavished on those beautiful geraniums.

    Both Linda and I love our garden.

  6. A lovely way to settle in: getting the plants started.

    A verse from a poem, which I like, is:

    The kiss of the sun for pardon,
    The song of the birds for mirth,--
    One is nearer God's heart in a garden
    Than anywhere else on earth.

  7. Looks like you've settled in quite nicely. Soon enough you'll be having mater and mayo sandwiches!
