Hello Friends ~ Thank you for emails, notes and comments hoping my back was better. The pain lasted for three days and I am so thankful. It has lasted longer before. I only took one ibuprophen, I mainly just relaxed and did nothing strenuous.
I have a few flower photos from this morning and one of my Queen Crape which is really filling out nicely. It makes a lovely shade tree once it is all filled in and then blooms around August/September.
My friend Nanci who owns the shop, with her husband, next to where I work gave me a pot of lovely Silver Lace Fern, in with a hibiscus. I repotted the hibiscus, and divided up the fern into three pots of it. I love the fern. She has more of this fern and keeps dividing it.

Now, here’s my find for the week. I stopped at a couple of yard sales on my way to work this morning. The one place I made a joke to the man about how I’d like to take his gardenia hedge. It was about 6’ long by 3’ deep and maybe 4’ high, squared off and loaded with blooms. I didn’t buy anything there.
Next stop looked more promising and it’s where I found my treasure for $3. It’s a hand made cross-stitched wool rug. It is 27” by 42”. It just needs a binding around the edge. It was made in 6 sections, then sewn together. It was some kind of kit so said the faded out printing on the back. With the roses, it had FlowerLady’s name all over it.
Right now the timer is about to go off for a (ding) Ricotta Cheese Pound cake. It sure smells good. I made it for our ladies small Bible study group tomorrow. We all bring something to eat and it’s always fun to see what all we have. Last week I took a banana bread with craisins, chocolate chips and sunflower seeds, and didn’t bring any home. I’m thinking of taking Comstock strawberry pie filling, since I have that in my cupboard, for topping.
I hope you all had a good week and that your weekend is a nice one too. May you all have a lovely Easter week also.
