Did you know that a cow will give nearly 200,000 glasses of milk in her lifetime?
White eggs come from hens with white feathers and white ear lobes
Brown eggs come from hens with red feathers and red ear lobes. The color of the shell
is determined by the breed of hen and has no effect on its quality, nutrients or flavor.

The Rose

God made the Rose and made it sweet,
With beauty beyond compare.
God made the Rose for you and me
And gave it perfume rare.

Old Paths

"Stand ye in the ways, and see, and as for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls".      Jermiah 6:16

Thank you, O God, for caring about the things of this world that need repair, like my life.

He left and didn't even say goodbye. After all the little bowls of water and carrots the Bennie feed him.
He ate as you can see much of the parsley but not the cilantro.
Ate the Verbena to the ground, flowers and all.

The Butterflies and I

are going to miss the Zinnias, they had to be pulled up from the garden. I didn't know that they are susceptible to Powdery Mildew or mold. A first for me.
I had planted the seeds from last year in the same spot for the past three years.
So I will let the ground rest this summer. 
I am not happy with the Pink Fountain Gaura flower I put in last year.
It just lay flat on the ground and the flowers don't wave in the breeze.
But on a happy note I will have other blooms coming soon and a new plant to enjoy.
