    Good morning Trisha. I had no idea there were so many fun gardening days in May to celebrate. Thanks for sharing…

    My latest gifts from the garden this year are the new born baby robins I posted about. They are growing so fast:)

    Thanks again for sharing…

      Thanks Louise. I just left a welcome back on your blog about an hour ago. (ot two … I was trying to catch up while watching the American Idol finale, so kind of lost track of time LOL) I was checking on your blog to see if you’d posted anything for Taffy Day in your archive, to add to what I was working on (but only checked through your May posts for the past few years.)
      Loved to read about your trip to the grandkids, and the baby Robin pictures.
      I’ll have another surprise for you, when I get the post ready in the next day or two.
