It's like I always say.....

Fake it 'til ya make it .
 A vase filled with cheerful Spring colors..
 My little French flower bucket filled with silk sunflowers.
Because.. .. the tulips haven't quite made it yet.
They're trying.
I planted this porch box full of tulip bulbs.
Dozens of them.
I hope they make it. 
Until then...I'll just have to enjoy the fake flowers and the supermarket flowers.
 We are lucky enough to have a log company not too far from where we live.
Today, we took a drive over and picked up a price list.
There's a lot of fence building to get done around here.
Time to start the Spring work.
At least I'll have plenty to do while I wait for the tulips to bloom.

Maybe it's similar to ' a watched pot never boils'.


  1. Fake it 'til you make it...good one. ;) I like it!
    Tulips are actually one of my favorite flowers of all time. I can't wait to see what comes through here.

    1. Marcia... I don't know why, but I cannot access your blog.
      I'll keep working on it.
      I keep getting the 'need an invite' message.
      My email address is

      Hope I can figure this out :)

  2. Kerin,
    So glad you let me know you're back with this new blog. I'll return. Tonight I planted some lilys and tulips that were given me these past 2 weeks. I am calling the garden my "Grady Garden" and hope these flowers continue to come up year after year. Love Spring.

    1. Connie..
      I think that is a wonderful idea!
      I hope that each and every Spring the 'Grady Garden' blossoms with abandon.

  9. Welcome back! I understand that you are doinga different blog now.Popped over from Velma's blog.


  10. I can't get enough of your daisies, Kerin. ;)
    I'm glad I stuck around to listen to your music for a while today. Love that song, Today is Your Day. I'm one of those few bloggers who love to listen to music when clicking on a blog. I think it separates bloggers from overly commercialized web pages.
    Humming along...:)


Thank you for taking time to comment.
It means so much to me, that you've taken a few minutes in your day, to stop by and visit.
I love getting to know you, and having our "chats".
Have a wonderful day.
