One Flower Thursday.....again.....and some turtle fun..............


Values are like fingerprints. Nobody's are the same, but you leave 'em all over everything you do.— Elvis Presley


I am still not sure where I want Dorothy's friends to be in the poppy field but here is one thought................


 I think I will try a few layouts before I decide.................

In earlier posts I have shown you some photos of our two turtles, Donnie and Stevie, and here are some more.......these two little ladies are so different from each other!  The big one, Donnie, loves vegetables....mostly fruits like watermelon and apricots where the little one, Stevie, is a protein lover!  She loves hamburger!

And just as they have different palates.......they both like water but Donnie likes the spa.......................


 and Stevie likes to swim in the great outdoors......lol......these little gals make my day!

I am linking up with Karen's One Flower Wednesday page and I hope you will go check out the other flowers there........
Just Click HERE...........
Hope you are all having a wonderful day............talk to you next time!

Thursday morning with One Flower Wednesday..............


 To thrive in life you need three bones. A wishbone. A backbone. And a funny bone.— Reba McEntire



I am adding a new flower to the Magic poppies scene...........here is the scarecrow in the poppies............


 ....and you can see his friends in the second photo waiting for their flower to be made............I will show you one or two of them next week and hopefully the following week I can sew them into the scene with sleeping Dorothy....................

The week I was gone on vacation was hard on my grass......it has been so hot.............I had been "nursing" some areas I had gotten a little too zealous with in killing some crabgrass.......unfortunately I killed some of the good lawn and was trying to get some new grass to grow.........with nobody here to keep it wet, I lost some of the new grass so today I am off to buy some more seed and start back again..............so I will just say Ta-Ta for now..................talk to you soon.............

On my Way back home on One Flower Wednesday



The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.— Oscar Wilde

I am on my way back home after a wonderful 10 day vacation.  By the time I get back home I will have driven over 1200 miles!  I have had such a good time and now it is time to get back home and back to work............

While I was here I managed to sew together some "pavers" I guess I will call them........not really flowers but some additions to the Talking Apple Tree scene..............



 
these hexies, together with the flower I showed you last week go sewed together just like this........................
 


Please remember to go check out the other flowers growing in Karen's garden at One Flower Wednesday.........just click HERE

I am setting this to auto-post at midnight and I will be taking off early tomorrow right after my kids get off to work and school. My son took some wonderful photos today of the family so I will just say goodnight for now and share one last photo of my vacation time.  I will talk to you again when I get home......ta-ta for now....

oops!



One kind word can warm three winter months.— Japanese Proverb





Don't know exactly how it happened but I was in the middle of getting my post for One Flower Wednesday done ahead of time when.........whoosh!...........it just took off and published before I was even done with it, let alone waiting until Wednesday............so here is what I call my "disclaimer post"....lol

I am still at my son's house until Wednesday when I will head back home and work as usual..........til then I am still enjoying my vacation.

Here are a few photos of my family that I've taken while I've been on my visit.......







Now lets see if I can get this published correctly.......lol....

I'll see you again on One Flower Wednesday......Ta-Ta for now!
