While reading Karoda's blog the other day, she included a Mother's Day link that I found most interesting. Check it out!
Which brings me to the newest button that I am wearing on the upper right hand side of my blog: One Million Blogs for Peace...to end the Iraq War. You know, I do support our troops, the daughters, sons, wives, husbands, fathers and mothers, who are fighting so bravely and giving the most precious gift....but why are we there, Mr. Bush???? Enough ranting, but please join me and wear your own One Million Blogs for Peace button! Also, when you finish reading my blog, head on over to Gerrie's blog and email her for an "End this (Endless) War" bumper sticker.
In my spare time, I've been quilting away on Poppy Reflections:
I painted this piece on silk a couple of years ago and knew that I wanted to quilt it, but the time was never right. So, I've made the time, and am keeping busy with it.
Yesterday we went to "early church" and when we got home I grabbed the camera and went out in the yard for a few shots:
here's the whole tree. It had just sent out all of its new leaves when we suffered the horrible Easter freeze, so it is releafing all over again. (You may be able to see some of the old brown leaves underneath.) This tree used to be surrounded by about 14 holly bushes, so you really couldn't appreciate its beauty. C and I dug them all out and then went "rock" shopping with our friend Jack. We came home with three of these beauties.
