Hello friends, more than any other sign of spring the blooming of the Red bud trees is it for me! Here in Indiana they are everywhere, and I love them so much! Even though when I was young I couldn't understand why they were called red bud instead of purple buds!
The buds are red but the blooms are purple,pink and white. Here's everything you wanted to know about them but were afraid to ask(hehe).…

Hello friends, I've had friends who've lost their partners or children. It's so hard to know how to be there for them without smothering them or not being there enough. Here's a fact:
Unloved people die. People need touch, caring, someone to listen and validate them, a purpose in life and connections with others. People…

Hello friends, is there any pain worse than betrayal? Next to your partner cheating on you the most painful thing to me is a friend who betrays your trust and loyalty.
Lets face it we've all trusted people we shouldn't have, or maybe trusted them to soon and didn't listen to that little voice in our head.
So what happens then? I was betrayed very recently, by a…Continue

Hello friends, it's been raining since yesterday so yuck can't work in the garden or flower beds, and they were so close to being dry enough to work in!
Who says Mother Nature has no sense of humor!
I will admit I do like laying in bed listening to the rain falling down. Better than last night when it was thunder and lightning with tornado warnings! All four dogs were hiding in my…Continue

Hello friends, I hope you had a nice weekend, but if you didn't and you need to talk about it we're here for you, either here or at the forum. Where ever you are, we can be there for you.
Let me explain why you have to register for the forum. It's not because I want your information, or that I pick and choose who gets to join. It's for the privacy of the women.

Hello friends, I realize that most of you probably know how to make a hanging basket, or that you buy them pre-made(not me, not at prices of 25.00 to 45.00 call me cheap all you want, I enjoy making them myself). These are my simple steps that I do.
Select a basket. There are a variety of baskets available on the market. Consider what will fit with your decor and what theme works well with your garden and plant choices.
Also select the size that best suits the type of plant that…

Hello friends, the reason I started this new blog was because I was told it's the cheapest way to let everyone know about my forum.
And you know their probably right.
On this blog I can tell you all about the forum(I can not tell you what is said in the forum) but I can answer any questions, let you get to know what we're like. Then maybe it'll be easier for you to…Continue

Hello friends I hope you all had a nice weekend, I did despite having three kids sick, actually maybe because I had three sick kids! They all slept most of the weekend, the only one I really worried about is Jon because he never tells you whats wrong with him until he's bad off and right now he's the worst off with a head cold that seems to be giving him bad headaches( he never admits to that, I can just…Continue

So a while back I turned off my human verification things on my two blogs mostly because I and a few of my followers can't see them very well, and until today I haven't had a problem. I got my first spam today so I went back and made it so you can't be anonymous anymore. If it happens again then I'll turn the verification back on but I don't want to. I went to put a comment on one blog and after 10 times trying to do it I gave up! What do you do?

I wanted to tell you about a new support group, it's for women by women, it's private-meaning any women can join but you don't have to worry that some random person will see what you say.
This group is all about supporting each other and helping you to though life easier-it's not a group like AA. It's for the everyday stuff, or when you need to talk and get it off your chest but not necessarily to your family or "real" friends.
There's no judgement, just…Continue
