Thursday, March 23, 2017~ Last summer/fall's drought caused the little dogwood outside my kitchen window to die. Almost cried when I realized it was gone. Mike dug it up today and to console me over the situation, he planted a Japanese Maple...I've wanted one of these a long time. Hope one day, mine will look like this. I do have purple irises that look a lot like the purple flowers in this photo!! And they're blooming now! Stay at home and piddle around here day.
