Howdy Hoe, Neighbors!

In the garden my favorite, burgundy daylily.And a double burgundy that I've had for about 5 years but never saw it bloom 'til now.A bird's eye view of one of our vegetable gardens. I got this close to this mourning dove with my camera. I must be livin' right, right? roflChocolate mint that I plan to sweeten with....
Stevia, a natural, non-caloric sweetener.
A baby cardinal...can you see the bit of red on its tail and wing?
I've been knittin' and crochetin', but nothin' picture worthy, yet...maybe next time...maybe. :)
Have a good, good week, Y'all!


  1. Oooo, the daylillies are so pretty! I love the colors.
    The garden is looking real good. I'm sure that you will have a bountiful harvest this season.
    The chocolate mint will be a great addition to any drink. Yum!

  2. The lillies are beautiful! How lucky were you to so close to the dove. Beautiful!

  3. A baby cardinal! How wonderful! Red daylillies always make me think of my aunt and uncle's mountain house. Good memories....

  4. Oh, Toni, BEAUTIFUL pictures!!! Wow.

  5. Oh, you have a beautiful garden!

  6. Your lilies are beautiful and so are your birds, esp. the mourning dove!

  7. that chocolate mint is really thriving ! your green thumb is showing!

  8. Love that double Lily! Where did you get the stevia plant? I want one!!

  9. Your double lily is fabulous :) Aren't you clever to grow your own natural sweetener!!! I'm you just use the leaves as is or do you do "something special" to them ?

  10. ooooh Pretty birdies. Your flowers are just beautiful as always. Can't wait to see what you've been making.

  11. Beautiful Day Lily! The garden is lovely. Getting this close to a dove is a wonderful thing, a most peaceful and beautiful bird. Continue to enjoy a lovely week.



  12. Love your photos! I have Stevia growing, too. What should I do with it?
