I know a sweet lady
that lives far away,
She's celebrating her birthday
in the desert today!

Her cards are amazing,
with sentiments she shares
It's obvious as ever
She's a person who cares!

Her smile is sweet
Her eyes twinkle with glee
I'm sure you know now
that I speak of Hannelie

So head on over
to her blog right away
And wish her a happy birthday
on this special day!

Wishing you the happiest birthday ever dear friend!

...just sharing a few pics

The basket in the foreground is a hanging strawberry plant (obviously not hanging!!!) that has surprisingly produced several yummy strawberries!

We babysat our granddog Ruuk last weekend (our grand children all have fur...two meow and this one barks).  Ya think he wasn't itching to take a dip in the pool and catch a koi or two?

Have a quick peek at the lovely impatiens in the background, nicely nestled in the crevices, cascading beautifully over the rocks....until Ruuk decided to take a wander over yonder!  They are mere sticks now.  No...the lawn chair wasn't enough to block his path (what was I thinking???) However, sometimes a good pinch-back produces more blooms...except we will likely have snow before that happens!

We are having a wonderful visit with our daughter!  It is so nice to have her home.  She is off visiting a friend right now, so I have taken a few minutes to sneak to my blog and finally post something.

Who time it might actually be a card!!!
