Visit Treeladys Nursery

If you haven’t been you should. Not only will you see beautiful plants but you can get information and advice on all things for your yard and garden.

Now I know those of you from a distance will probably not venture over here but those in the area should. The nursery is a very calming place just to visit and Miss Treelady herself is always so glad for a visit.

You can also shop the gifts and pick up wonderful handmade soap and of course that is where you will find Lateblooming Design handmade paper crafted gardens. Some of these are there.

Plus more. It is always best to support local businesses and local artist. We depend on it.

Need directions? Leave a comment and I will get back to you asap.

 

Blessing for Easter

How did things get so mixed up about Easter? Some of us are having our celebrations this weekend and there are some not doing it until next weekend.   Since it relates to Passover which I think starts tonight shouldn’t that be the given time. After all….it was at Passover everything we as Christians keep in our heart to remember the grace of our Lord.,

Eggs don’t roll here like they did when the kids were little. There will be church services,family meals and of course the Bunny will leave more candy. Good excuse to grab a chocolate egg which none of us need. I did come up with several card designs for family members and one for a dear friend having health problems but don’t think I made a picture of that one. Let’s see…now where are those photos?

Don’t laugh…it did take me a few minutes to find them. Most will be hand delivered . As much fun as I am having doing these flowers by Susan’s Garden they are crazy to mail.  I have another batch ready to go to Treelady.  Anyone in Central Mississippi really should visit her and see all of the beautiful plants. It is a very relaxing place to visit and you can grab a hand-made paper crafted flower too.

Until next time….Have a blessed Easter Weekend…Remember it isn’t about the Bunny and sing praises for it is the Lords day. REJOICE for He Lives!

Back to the Regular Program

Let me tell you, I have fallen in love with the dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs that are part of Susan Tierney Cockburn’s Garden Notes. She showcases them on Wednesday mornings on live facebook. Check out TheGARDENSPOTLIVE. New die are out and oh my they are so real looking. Takes practice but even she has a challenge or two on the show.

Last week she was demoing her tulips and they kept opening up too much. Well she eventually got hers to stay…mine haven’t just yet.

Trying Something New

Oh the things this world wide web brings into our crafting space. The other day ,somehow I got a youtube video of a  very talented person doing the  craziest thing.  She was making paper wrought iron. Well now…this looked very interesting. Could I?

After copying the design and printing it out I took off. Well first I had to cut all those tiny strips of back paper. You know…the kind used in Quilling. Only these were 1/8″ instead of 1/16″. Let me tell you …It is harder than it looks , but I will keep on until I get this worked out.

Needless to say I didn’t get the” big picture”. But what was fashioned into a card managed to cover the really rough spots.

Goodness..it does look better in person. My photo skills are lacking …maybe it is the light  or lack of it on this rain day. Any way It is fun to try new things and I will continue to give it a go. Isn’t there a saying about learning something new every day?

If you are here please comment yea or na or even just hello. That way I will know I’m not talking to my self. And do remember… This is the Lords day…REJOICE!

 

 

Only Time Will Tell

Well…..I knew it would be bad but only time will tell if she is able to pull herself out of this . The hoop (green ) house isn’t heated and it must have gotten awfully low on those cold nights.Even in cold weather the house can reach 90 degrees or better on a sunny day but even I can tell she took a real bump.But before the temps dropping for the second day I did harvest the remaining fruit. Total 37 lemons. And this was after selling a couple of dozen and giving away to family at least 2 doz and freezing a couple doz. for my self. Was this her ” last Hoorah”> Time will tell.

Treelady’s Nursery

This is it. The most delightful plant nursery to visit I’ve ever been too. It is back in the woods off of a gravel road. Quite and peaceful and you just want to sit a spell, drink a cup of herb tea and listen to the birds and the bees. Yes there are bees so beware. That is why everything looks so good.Bees pollinating the flowers and fruit treesand making that honey you will see for sale in the shop. Lots of good stuff here. Handmade soap and personal care products ,hand stitched items as well as handmade greeting cards. The plants are beautiful, well cared for and well…those of you close by need to visit. You will be glad you did.

More ‘ladies’ dancing in the breeze.

These are in my Mothers yard. See…you never know where they will come up
