1,400 plastic bags are used annually by the average American family.
I think one person at a time can make a difference.

I make these at least once a week. For those of you who don't know me I have a confession....I need to have dessert with my breakfast every morning. Forget dinner, I crave the sweets in the morning. If I don't have something sweet I make something because I HAVE to have dessert with my breakfast every morning.
These little gems are delightful. They are fast to make....I can make the batter in the time it takes the oven to heat up. I usually freeze them right after they have cooled from the oven so they taste fresh everyday.

the showstopper for me by the pond is the Sum and Substance Hosta's...its still early in the season. Their leaves will measure about 10" wide by 20" long when all grown up.
I love the different textures of these blue hosta's with the Japanese painted ferns. That little tiny heart shaped leaf on right is Epimedium. It's a wonderful and tough little ground cover that gets sprays of pale yellow flowers in early spring.
Another view looking towards the pond.

Oh my! I've been away for too long. Busy as a bee but loving life with Lydia home from school. We have been running around everyday and just dropping off to sleep easy as pie each night. That's always a blessing. She's such a good girl. She will be starting summer camp in another week and I'll have a bit more time to get work done.......I've missed my blogging friends also and need to catch up!
Don't you just love this rose. I paid $2.00 at Walmart at the end of last season. Don't you just love it more now?? I love a good deal! I think its called "Wild Blue Yonder" It's even more magical in person with a hint of blue at its edges.
I've been working on an update for June 22nd. I've got lots of things started here just sitting around naked with no limbs ~ boy does that sound morbid. These things have to get done in stages you know. They will all be dressed and ready to go by the 22nd.
I can't believe this is my 100th post! You all are wonderful for reading my ramblings. I'd like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. In honor of my 100th post I'm giving away this little mouse sitting on a wool pin cushion tuffet. He is weighted and not attached so you can use them together or separately.
To enter, post a comment here before the end of the day on June 20th. To post a comment click on ~Share Your Thoughts~ at the bottom of this post.

I hope you are all well and enjoying a beautiful sunny Saturday. For my friends in Australia I hope your winter so far has been a mild one. Have a happy day! xoxox Jenn
