A favorite......

It's that time of year.........gladiolas adorn the cook stove in my dining room. One of my absolutely favorite flowers.

Weather is perfect; we are putting up hay. Small lots at a time as saturated fields dry out. We are grateful for it any way we can get it!

~Have a great day ~

I LOVE the tile wall behind your cook stove!

Thank you Nancy - original tile work done by my husband when we bought the house.
I love it as well :)

Congrats on the hay. Hoping to get some of the same done today too. I LOVE your new header! The little hen has surely done a great job with her alien babies.

Yesterday was my mother's birthday. Glads were always the flower of her choice. Thank you for the memory!

I love the flowers. I finally got a few to blooms this year. Next year I hope to grow even more. One of my favorites, too.

Lovely Flowers! I have wood envy. We need to get our wood in for the winter.

I am glad to hear that you are able to get at least a little hay in!! I can't wait to see your wood cook stove!! We got one last year for a really good price and we love it!! Take care and I e-mailed you back!!

I love those glads. I agree with Nancy K. the tile wall is beautiful. I was reading your last post and couldn't get over that wood pile. I've hauled in about 13 loads and it doesn't look nowhere near as much as that. I really enjoy reading your blog.
