Blueberries, Raspberries, & Sweet Annie

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence 

Oh my goodness, it's berry time again.  We have Mom's blueberry bushes and Dad's raspberry bushes
(which are taking over the whole slope).  And then there is the........Sweet Annie.
Mom had the first blueberry of the season and the first raspberry - our girl Jessie had the pleasure of "picking" it, sniff, sniff, gone!  Poor Dad.
The Sweet Annie is growing like a weed.  Mom had a bee-u-tee-ful harvest last fall.  We sent Aunt Kathy home with an arm full, we contained it in a big plastic bag, tied it and put it in the trunk of her car.........yup, it now smells like Sweet Annie.
Tomatoes are showing up almost every day and Jessie's Mater Plant is becoming a monster.

Have a wonderful weekend, maybe the weather will be lovely enough to get out and enjoy all the precious beauty that surrounds us.  Thank you, God.

July Ornament

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence
This is our ornament for July.  Mom had a little lapel pin that she used for a charm and paper embellishments for the centers.
But here is what we went through to make the ornament....
Yes, Vlad had to hold LuLu and Flora so that they couldn't mess with or steal parts.  Oh, they yelled and screamed at Vlad, even called him "buzzard head" but he held firm.
They are now in big "time out" until they learn to be respectful of others and property that doesn't belong to them.  Will they ever learn?  I really don't think so.

Ornament Girls can be found at
Miss Staci Ann opens registration for new members on the first of each month, I believe at noon.  We are a wonderful group, worldwide, sharing ideas, where to find different supplies such as fabric, and encouraging each other, and posting pictures of our monthly ornament.  Miss Staci even has a gallery where she displays our work.

Jessie's Mater Plant 2016

Well, it's about that time again - report on Jessie's mater plant.  For those of you who are new to my blog I'll tell you all about this.
M&D adopted Jessie on March 12, 2008 - she was a rescue about 9 months old.  We lived in Tallahassee, FL and Mom loved growing a cherry tomato plant on the deck in the backyard. 
Planting time came, the little plant was planted in a BIG pot right next to the French doors leading from the family room to the deck.  
Just as the tomatoes were starting to show we noticed Jessie sniffing the plant.  One morning, there it was - the first bee-u-tee-ful little ripe tomato.  Jessie stopped, sniff, sniff, chomp!  No more little tomato.  And so this little tradition began and has continued all these years.
Now that we live in the western NC mountains Jessie has her little plant on the back porch - about 30' from the ground.  It is loaded with little green tomatoes and each morning on the way down to the yard for potty Mom takes them on the back porch for "walk about" to hang the hummingbird feeder (we take it in at night because of bears - even 30' off the ground) and Jessie goes right to her mater plant.  She knows where the little green ones are and seems to sniff each one - waiting.
She carefully takes one ripe tomato off "HER" plant and enjoys that sweet taste.
Precious?  You bet it is and last summer our little Molly Brown, rescue, (adopted on January 19, 2006) watched but she would never try a piece when we offered it to her.  Well, that changed, one little taste and now she loves them but only in very small pieces.

And there you have it - Jessie's Mater Plant story.

I wish you a wonderful weekend, lots of laughs, love, and of course - most important - Blessings.

Hugs,
Prudence

Friday Prezzie

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence
(Paddington)

Hi Everybeary, hope you are having a bee-u-tee-ful week.
Many years ago Dad began bringing home a Friday Present for Mom each Friday.  It could be a little plant, or something that she loves and although nothing extravagant, something very nice.
Today we both got a Friday Prezzie, here is mine.
Mom got Night At The Museum Tomb Room, I want to see that one and she (of course) wants to see Paddington so we will have a movie night, with popcorn of course, and watch our movies.
We both wish you a wonderful weekend, filled to the brim with love, sunshine, and blessings.

May Ornament

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

Hi, I just wanted to share our May ornament from

Finally there was peace, the two squirts figured out that if they are well behaved and polite they get to join in some fun and craft projects.

Happy Weekend.
