Lots of work to be done in our yard.   Little scrub oaks and pines starting to come up under the azaelas and they are about two inches tall.   Acorns dropping from trees next door rooted themselves there.   No fun.
A few things blooming right now and not as much as last year at this time.
But a little color anyway.
Black eyed Susan and Tick seed flower I heard the orange one called.

few lavender sprigs
I will be making some Lavender ice cream later this evening

A few lavender sprigs picked laid upon placemats that I purchased at the Christmas tree shops for a dollar a piece.
asst. flowers from outside
The yellow orange ones have just started blooming well.

A pie I made that the recipe is all over the place for this one. It's called copy cat shoney's strawberry pie.  It called for 1 box of  of  dry strawberry jello but I only used 1/2 box,  would have been way to sweet for me with a whole box.  I put the crust in the oven for a few minutes to harden a little,  a ready made graham cracker crust instead of a ready made regular pie crust.   Worked well.

 A pretty little handmade angel I purchased at "classic touches" in Amelia Virginia.


  1. Beautiful lavender, I love the idea of lavender ice-cream not something that I have ever tried.

  2. Betsy,
    Thanks so much for stopping by!! Beautiful blooms!! I have a similar angel hanging in my craft room!!

  3. Your lavender is so pretty and I could go for a slice of that Shoney's strawberry pie!!

  4. I wish I could grow lavender, Betsy. Nothing really compares to its sweet fragrance! It requires more sun than I have. How wonderful you are going to use it in your ice cream. Yum... That strawberry pie sure looks delicious! Enjoy your weekend. ♥

  5. Hi Betsy: Your flowers are so pretty. I love the colors and am going to try some in my garden. How do you make lavender ice cream? My lavender is just about ready to open their buds and I googled the recipe for the pie. Going to make that for sure. My mouth is watering..Have a great week..xxoJudy

  6. Such a wonderful array of blooms, and lavender ice cream, bet that will be good!

    All the best Jan
