Mammoth Sunflowers In The Garden


Spraying pesticide on the sunflower.

Very tall Mammoth Sunflowers.

We decided to plant a few Mammoth Sunflowers in the garden this year.  Look that these giants!  They're taller than my husband, who's 5'11.  Wow!  I can't wait to see how huge their flowers would be. It is going to be a very exciting summer gardening.

Vegetable Garden 2022 First Harvest


Japanese Eggplant   

It is delightful to see our vegetable garden is looking great this year.  As you know, we haven't been getting any luck with our garden in the last three years.  So this year's harvest is pretty much a delight.  

This is the only eggplant I have this year, and it is doing fantastic.  The bell peppers, jalapeƱos, and the banana pepper are looking great as well.  We shared some peppers to the neighbors last night.  I used the remaining ones for my stir-fry. :)



We also tried planting some tomato varieties this year.  I will tell you more about it in my next post.  


Thank you for sharing!

Flowers Around The Yard



Flores de Mayo or May Flowers.  It's a beautiful day today.  My dear husband and I went outside for a walk around the yard after lunch.  Here are a few photos of flowers in our yard and garden. The Ligustrum bushes are blooming early this year.  Their tiny flowers attract bees and butterflies.  I bet they'll going to fade before Memorial Day.

This is also Ligustrum :)

Christmas Cactus In Bloom



l am very glad to share with you all that my Christmas cactus is blooming.  I didn't know until I was watering my indoor pants this morning.  It is really delightful to see our plants giving us some blooms.  I've been waiting for this to happen for a year.  :D


 I bought this indoor plant from Walmart for $3.  This was actually a "rescue plant" (on clearance).  So far, it is surviving in my house. Hopefully, it will make more flowers...lots and lots of them.  :)

Thank you for sharing!

Happy First Day of Spring 2022

Happy First Day of Spring, everyone!  I am so happy to see these little pollinators today.  They were feeding on the dandelion flowers in our backyard.  It's so amazing to see them hogging each flower as they transfer to the other. 

Love your bees.  Leave a small patch of weed flowers like this when you are mowing.





Thank you for sharing!

Tall Trees On Tickle Hill


My family and I had a weekend getaway in Broken Bow, Oklahoma.  Our destination was always Beaver’s Bend State Park.  We enjoyed picnicking, horseback riding, train rides, and dipping in the cold waters of the Mountain Fork River.  

Recently, we found this new development a few minutes up by Steven's Gap.  It's on Tickle Hill.  The new development has a super steep one-way road.  We tried driving down and up the hill.  It was quite thrilling.  Then we did some walking down hill and up hill.  We had a great time.  Those tall trees within the area make a very nice background view.  So refreshing.  Next time we visit the development, there would be new homes or cabin for sure.  But we won't be driving up and down the hill no more.  It scares my darling daughter.  In fact, she was teary-eyed after that one drive.  But it was an unforgettable experience.
