Lots of Grandparents are blessed with a "Matthew".

We are, and he will be sixteen years old May 30th.  Matthew is our youngest grandchild.

He has always seen the world in a unique way finding fun everywhere.  Deciding
what to do at MiMi's house when he was a tiny boy,  he shrugged his little shoulders and
said, "well, we could always do some crafts".

He has always been one to teach himself things.  I remember Origami.  There was nothing
he could not make.  I bought lots of those beautiful papers.  He ended up teaching a class at school.

Then there was the RUBIX CUBE.  He has dozens of them and can work all of them.

Matthew's latest interest is making knives.  Who knows what inspired that.  He has already mailed mine and I love it.
I think he does beautiful work.

Some of his first work

Handiwork is exquisite.
This is mine.  I plan to use it on a cheese tray.
                                          ( I have another one that I cannot find in my cluttered
                                                mess of photos on my computer)

                                  Matthew has always enjoyed sports with soccer being his favorite.
                                  He is also a Super-Techie who is always so patient with his MiMi
                                  when she doesn't even know how to ask questions.

                                 You would like Matthew!  He is "fun" to be
                      with.... HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

My Therapy Garden (Part 2)

I love Lavender!
Still thinking if I'm going to re pot or not?
The white dianthus came back from a pot my
Daughter-in-law gave me last year.
I made a topiary from thyme that is in bloom along side
some violas hanging around.

Lenten Rose
is still blooming...

Thanks for coming by, I enjoyed our visit so much! Your comments are always welcome.

My Therapy Garden

Hey everybody,

It's been a long time.  I've missed you.  Maybe I will do better.  I just couldn't keep from sharing
one of the best things in my life right now.  I have made lots of pictures too.  It is my   
favorite time of the year so we are going to take a very short stroll in my therapy garden.

My peonies are glorious right now.  I wish you were here.  Every time I catch their fragrance
it just takes me away.  Only God could create such beauty.  I'm going to show you several
different kinds.  
Cotton Candy

Just a touch of pink.....

I left this pot with 2 amaryllis bulbs inside on our patio  
all winter.  The only time they had bloomed was one
Christmas.  Da Da!
There are four blooms today and more buds!

The sun is coming down.  I think
I'll take a break.  Let's call this part one. Thanks again for coming by.  Your comments are always welcome.
