SPRINGTIME IN TENNESSEE

I walked back in our woods today and had to go back and get the camera. Just look at the dogwoods a full month early. Everything is greening up and I am so happy. Even my bermuda grass is greening up and the peonies have buds. They usually bloom the first of may and I picked my first iris. And as you can tell I have gained a lot of weight over this last year, but I finally feel like getting out and walking and maybe I will get it off or not.

The rest--the forsythia bushs are in what was my mother's house, next door to me. I now rent it out. My fence needs painting.

Lucille,

Your third photo shows a very old cabin in the background. Is there a story about this cabin that you can share?

Our trees and flowers have been confused this year. The camellias, which should bloom in the winter, were blooming last summer. My daffodils and hyacinths have finished, and the irises are getting ready to bloom. One of my peony trees is getting ready to open its buds, and the other has not started. The azaleas and cymbidium orchids are blooming like crazy, and my bleeding hearts and lilacs - which should bloom in early May - are already fully open.

Looks beautiful hon!! Love that third picture..so quaint looking! All the ornamental trees and shrubs in my neck of the woods ( chicago) are blooming like crazy also...about 4 to 6 weeks early. We have been setting record high temps all week. Mother nature is very confused this year.
It does a body good to get out walk around in the spring air and see everything greening up!

Lucille, you look wonderful. The forsythia's are in bloom here too. Tulips are almost done and my lilac and hydrangea's have big, fat buds on them. I'd say we're about 2 weeks ahead of schedule here. Love your property.

Starr back about 20 or so years ago when DH and I were young, we bought a farm for the timber. Well this old cabin was on the property. We dismantled it, log by log then numbered them. It took us a good two years to get it put back together. Larry finally got a son-in-law to help. I was so proud, what a wonderful play house for the grands and at that time they were all boys. I imagined them camping out back there, etc. But never happened. What I would have givened for a place like that as a little girl, but kids today--not so much. Before I got sick, we kept that area like a park. Lots of hosta and monkey grass around trees and a pit for bbq. Every memorial day we had lots of people for the whole-hog bbq. Well the deer have eaten the hosta and weeds are springing up. I'm trying to get DH to run the electric fence around that part too for the calves.

When the boys were about 8&10, they BEGGED for a tree house. Dh took on the project, buying good lumber, and helping them every inch of the way. The tree house spans between a stand of 4 sugar maples, and is large enough to have bunk beds plus a small table and two chairs. I think the kids slept in it one night.

Now we're thinking about taking it down... the way Dave built it, it will never fall down on its own!
