The Mighty 100

Today is my 100th post! I started this blog last January after I came across a gardening blog from Michigan. I started poking around and found Blogger. It has been such a wonderful thing to share with all of you, the gardens I have seen along with my own. The countryside that I have explored, the sunsets, blossoms and cows I have meet along the way.

I think today will be a hodgepodge of things that I have not shared with you so far.

One of the weekends I actually really got to spend entirely in the new iris garden, I made this friend.
This little toad hung out for several days in the doorway of the garage nestled in my water shoes. He would leave at night but would be back when I checked in the morning. I walked past him many times to retrieve garden tools. He hardly ever budged.

This is the sewing machine my mother bought me this spring. She found it at Goodwill for $20. What a steal. It's a heavy old machine and runs great. Barely been used from the looks of it. I have been practicing my sewing skills since I have been back in the south.

A view I wish I had.

My nephew, Leahm hitting the slide.

A cicada hitching a ride in my car. Buckle up!

Oh those nasty horn worms! They seem to come out of nowhere.

An overeager tree. This photo was taken about three weeks ago!

Thanks to all of you who follow along! There are many more posts to come.

Cute little toady. I never even noticed my 100th post. I am so negligent.

Congratulations. Your blog was one of the very first that I followed. I adore the picture of the toad. That is just ace.

Your blog posts make me smile

Congrats on your 100! How cute is that sewing machine and only $20; that is awesome. I wish I had that view too.

Kudos and congrats on your 100th post! How exciting (although your toad seems to be taking it all in stride LOL). :-D
