When we cleaned out my inlaws house a few years ago, Pumpkin dug up some scraggly rose bushes and replanted them in our yard. For years, my inlaws grew lovely roses in three dedicated beds. For whatever reason, they got rid of all of them. The plants Pumpkin dug up were volunteers in their raised beds. They did not do much last year in our yard. But, this year, we have flowers! They warm my heart!

Last year we dug out the two storm damaged maples. The Big Guy put sod down and it grew beautifully. We finally bit the bullet and added another tree to the front yard. It is a Little Gem magnolia and should fill the space perfectly. Remind me in a few years when the leaves make a mess that I chose this tree. I love the color, texture and depth of the leaves. It doesn't hurt that they are quintessentially part of the South. Hope we can keep it alive. There are blooms on it and we can't wait to see them open!

A new restaurant is in town. I'd say it is primarily Japanese. The Big Guy was a wonderful sport. Asian is not normally his first choice, but he suggested it and went with it. The lighting from the window is not the best for the photos, but you get the idea. Peanut came along. The restaurant doesn't have its liquor license yet. So, we brought our own bottle to celebrate. It was nice to have Peanut as the DD.
Muddy's. It doesn't get any better than the Pucker Up cupcakes!
It is so funny. I enjoy a glass of wine but it knocks me out. The boys were teasing me by saying, "goodnight, momma." Sure enough. The Big Guy turned on some sports documentary and in a few minutes I was nodding off on the couch. I think there is a blackmail photo to prove it!
