A cool morning

Poppy's day off was yesterday, so today is my Monday!!  It's cool this morning.  In fact, we may have had a little frost last night.  I'm afraid to look at the garden.  This has been an unusual spring.  Six of the eight tomato plants I put in the garden have died.  The only other time I remember losing tomato plants was because of cut worms.  I am about ready to lock the garden gate and be done with it!!!

Have you ever totally, totally lost your sense of style.. Not that I've ever had any style!!!  What I like and want, I can't afford!!!  My closet looks like the grand opening at a local thrift store!!!  I have spent the entire morning cleaning out my closet.  I just called Poppy and ask him to bring home every empty box he can get his hands on.  I may have to hire Waste Industries to come and haul this stuff off.  Not really! :) I plan to have a major yard sale and take all this money I'm going to make :) and buy one special outfit.  That's my plan!!!!

I tried yesterday to get a good picture of this pink boutonniere rose bush.  It was planted up at the house but grew so out of control, I had to cut it down and move it.  It now grows on a dead cedar tree at the pond.   This climbing rose grows really big and needs lots of support.  The tiny pink rose buds are beautiful.





A hen party...


Thank you for looking in.  I'm getting out of this closet for a while!!! :)

Love,
Henny Penny

    1. Dear Terry,

      Thank you!! Oh, I would love to be in the mountains with you!! Poppy and I are always threatening to sell everything and move to the mountains. It's fun to think about!! Can you believe it's supposed to hit 90 today. It is beautiful today though! Thanks for the encouragement!! :)

  2. I'm not sure that I've ever lost my style. I'm sure that I've misplaced it from time to time, though. ;) My biggest issue with my style now us my weight. I've got all kinds of cute clothing waiting for me from my past. I just need to get the rest of this weight off. :)

  4. Dear Henny,
    Good for you for getting your closet in order. I need to do that too. We are blessed to have great opportunities here to refurbish the wardrobe in a frugal manner, nearly always. With that in mind, I have purposed to 'let go' of what I am not using and/or don't need, to be a blessing to someone else.

    You inspire me. Perhaps one day soon I will jump head first into my closet project. (or at least I'll goad myself when passing that YOU did yours! Haha :0)

    Love,
    Jen
