Spring has sprung!

What a beautiful day it turned out to be.  In celebration of Spring I want to share some pics and a new growing project I’ve got going.

Have you heard of the Chayote squash?  My Aunt Ree gave me one and showed me a video on how to grow them.  So I thought I’d give it a try, and I’ve been amazed so far.

First I stuck the whole squash in a pot of soil.

When it started making roots, then I was to bury it all under the soil with roots down and the plant part up, above the soil. This happened within 3 days.  So I buried the whole squash under soil as directed.


then two days later (yesterday) this is how much it grew.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  and today, the part of the plants that is looped over the plant is now pointing to the sun adding another three to four inches to its height.   I see that I’m going to have to move it outside soon!

In the flower bed, the yellow daffodils have faded away and the white ones are on display.


Seeing the daffodils bloom is an indication Spring has definitely sprung.  Baby animals come to mind.  I have seen a lot of calves in the local pastures as I drive by.  I remember when we found some baby rabbits in our garden last year.  I finished this little stuffed rabbit yesterday.  Thought it was a good way to end winter.

Happy Spring!

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
