More in Marlton

Hello Friends and Happy Thursday

As per yesterday’s post here are a few more pictures from my day trip to Marlton.  It’s was so lovely that is made the drive on the Jersey Turnpike bearable.  Unfortunately I lost the sense of serenity when a rainstorm hit driving home! OOTD 7 23 13 022   Thankfully, I don’t have allergies

Saturday’s 60th Birthday Bash

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend, the weather was simply gorgeous in Delaware despite a few intermittent rain drops.  Saturday I spent most of the morning in my son’s closet gathering clothes to be donated to the Cancer Federation. He doesn’t outgrow his clothes as quickly as his younger brother, but I was able to find enough to fill two large bags.

Saturday evening hubby and I attended a celebration in honor of his friend’s 60th birthday. Hollywood is a long time friend and is the lead singer of Hollywood And The Final Kutt Band.  They have played all over Delaware and can be seen next at the World Cafe Live in Wilmington on September 5th.

Plants in the Back Seat

Hello Friends and Happy Sunday

I hope you had a good weekend with an opportunity to spend quality time with your family/friends and did something fun and enjoyable.  Yesterday, I took my car in for an oil change and Malik was my chauffeur so I took full advantage by having him drive me all around town running errands – it was good being Mommy!  I had him drive me to Dunkin Donuts, Dutch Country Farmers Market, Family DollarPNC Bank and then finally to Lowe’s it was fun for me, not so much for him.

We gave him Tayair’s old car, remember the 2002 Hyundai Elantra, well you would have thought it was a new Mercedes because when he realized the plants had to ride in the back seat he wasn’t happy!  I  purchased two hanging baskets, a Color Combo Patio plant, Sweet Basil, Heirloom Tomatoes, Curled Parsley and Cilantro and they rode shotgun in the back seat fully protected by a yard of plastic – it was hilarious!

Hanging baskets – Petunias, Calibrachoa and Lobelia

Curled Parsley – boil and drink like tea it’s great for the digestive system

Cilantro is a wonderful fragrant herb

Basil also keeps the bugs away from your garden

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Fresh Garden Tomatoes – scents of summer

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Hibiscus is a perfect patio plant

Love the handles on these hanging baskets

OOTD – FRI-YAY!!!!

It’s finally Friday and the heat is on!

I am so ready for the weekend and tomorrow’s plans include clearing out my little garden because the mint has taken over! I want to add some basil, peppers and tomatos and get a few flowering baskets to hang around the deck.

It’s time to fire up the grill and spend evenings sitting outside, I love this time of the year!

What are your plans for the weekend?

Give Me My Flowers While I'm Living

Give Me My Flowers While I’m Living 

(click to listen)

In this world today while we’re living
Some folks say the worst of us they can
But when we are dead and in our caskets
They always slip some lilies in our hand

    Won’t you give me my flowers while I’m living
And let me enjoy them while I can
Pleae don’t wait till I’m ready to be buried
And then slip some lilies in my hand

In this world is where we need our flowers
A kind word to help us get along
If you can’t give me flowers while I’m living
Then please don’t throw them when I’m gone
