The Un Birthday celebration

It's time again...
for my Un Birthday Celebration. I will be getting my gift to one of you ready and will draw a name on my birthday.....Friday February 3rd......for a giveaway. To enter all you need to do is be a follower and  comment on this post and say you want to enter.

So nice to have flowers bloom all year long. Our first Mallow bloom.....

I love this bush....it has grown so tall and when it really begins to bloom it is so lovely.




I spent nice relaxing time stitching on Baboushka....she is looking so cute.
I just had to get her face done. I hate looking at a blank face, don't you? See my wooden nesting Baboushka...it was given to me by my great nephew Nico many years ago.... he is my sis Lynowl's grandson. The tag on the bottom says it was made in Russia. This has been a delightful project to stitch.  My goal is to get the stitching finished this week..... I think I can
will..... I hope to anyway.
Have you seen these pots?
The Down Under Pot
Mr H and I found it at a local nursery. He planted  Lobelia...one of my favorite plants in it and it is growing just right. Finally starting to turn up around the pot. While we are talking about the plants.....Mr H did put up a bit of fencing around my precious tomato plants. I am watching one tomato and will pick it as soon as it turns orange...that is the color of this variety.  The strawberry plant has some new growth in the center so hopefully I will get at least one of them now that it has netting around it. You would think since I put seed out and water as well as hummingbird nectar...made from scratch even.... that they would leave my food alone.
Well, I need my coffee and the morning paper. Thanks for the kind words. I do hopeyou have a great day. 
PS/ Barbara is having a Valentine give away!
