These two purses are identical in style, just different colors. One of the things that tickled me was the label, which says 'Dare to be Different'. I'm just sayin', here, but these don't look

The hyacinths are starting to bloom, we have several colors, but this light pink one is a current favorite of mine.

the weather can change so fast,
that one minute it's sunny and the next there is hail!
Our weather today has been fabulous, with a high temp in the 50's, but the last two weeks have been very cloudy, with a few 'five minute storms' hitting us.
Things are starting to bloom here, which makes each trip to the yard exciting. I wanted to show you something that I am particularly happy about- the violets are blooming, and this year I have 3- yes - 3 different colors of wood violets. Last year I saw some white ones, and some pink ones (which I had never seen before!) at a friend's garden, and she was good enough to share some with me. I have been on the lookout for white violets for some time, so I was very pleased to get these starts.
The beautiful blue/violet ones are always lovely.

I found this cute dish at Tai Pan trading. I am thinking it is a chain, but I don't know if it is nationwide, or not. I do know that it is too much fun to go and walk thru every aisle, and see what kind of great 'stuff' they have.
maybe a quarter horse???
Happy Birthday, Gretchen!!!!

At any rate, last year was our second year to grow them. (and I planted them too close together, and then didn't thin them properly or vigorously enough). But then I didn't get them all pulled in the fall, as much out of laziness as anything, I suppose. But I knew we could see if the parsnips and the carrots that were left in the ground would overwinter like 'the books' say they will.
On one of my ventures into the back yard bog (spring run-off and snow melt), I grabbed a gardening fork and checked the parsnips. Yup, they were still there, and so I decided it was time to see if they were any good. You can see they were a muddy mess in the first picture (above).
I put the meat in the crockpot about 9 a.m., and add the meat tenderizer, soup mix, and pour the tomatoes over the top. Cook on low for about 3 -4 hours.
