Gardenias!!!  I have hundreds of gardenia bushes in my yard that are blooming!!  Sue from Mackintosh Mitch said it right,, when she said,,in the south they grow almost like weeks.  They are easy to grow!!  They smell wonderful and they are drought tolerant!!!  You never have to water them except when they are first getting started!!! When we are out walking the air smells like perfume!!!!

Another week has gone by like a flash!!!  They really fly by!!
Zoie does not like her picture taken~~~~~~~ She is really very hard to take a good picture of!!!   I have been trying to get a picture of her squirrel watching-- no dice!!  She wants so badly to catch a squirrel .
I really don't want an animal to die --even a squirrel!!  She DOES want one to die!!!!! One day she will be chasing an old and tired one and she will get it!!!

Raccoons~~~ people I know I shouldn't ~~~ but I do~~~ I love coons and I miss them so much.
When I was feeding them dog food that we bought at Wal-marts I was very close to them.  They would come when called and knew their names.  Now that we are not buying food for them any more-- can't afford it-- I don't see them as often.  I am still feeding them every night after dark. I am cooking a greens and rice strew for them, I don't have the relationship with them I use to have.  Of course Zoie is doing a lot about that.   I miss them!!!!  Silly me!!!

Have a wonderful week-end dear friends.  Love coming your way, Zoie & Fern

Strawberries and my love~~ Zoie!!!

Hi Friends,  We have had strawberries out our wing-wang~~~~~~~~ !!  Still!!!  I am picking 2 times a day and Tom picks once.  We have 30 plus berries everyday.  We have 220 plants in the grown and a few in pots.  They all came from just one plant that we bought in 09.  If you like strawberries I suggest you buy a plant!!!  It is well worth the money.  A very good investment!!!!!!!!!!!  I have a lot in my freezer and we are eating some everyday!!! I love them in steel cut oatmeal with bananas and blueberries and walnuts.  That is a meal to die for!!!  It is so good for you too!! 

The bottom photo of Zoie is my favorite photo of her I have! !  I love it so!!  You will probably see it a lot of times!!!

Feel Close to God when We Work in the Garedn

Happy is always out watching when Tom works in the garden.  When I work in the garden she is there.  When we are out there working,, Happy is out there too!!!  Zoie is off playing somewhere, but Happy is always close by!!
We have 10 tomato plants this year, this is how they look, all in their own pots!!!  Everyone grown by seeds and watched and cared for since they poked their little heads up out of the soil!!!  They become your babies!!!!

Love coming your way,  Happy, Zoie & Fern

Happy in Zoie's crate!!

This is Happy sleeping in Zoie's crate !!!!!!!  There are times ---not often but once in a while Zoie has wanted to go in her crate and she has walked in there and oops  Happy is in there!!!  I ask Tom this evening if he would make a crate out of a cardboard box and paint that box so she could have her own crate to sleep in when in the house.  She has a crate out on the patio she sleeps in when she is out.  Poor Zoie now that crate isn't such a bad place it is occupied!!
I hope you all have a wonderful week-end--we plan on having a good one..............
Love coming your way, Happy, Zoie & Fern

Hi Blog Friends,  my eyes are better now.  Thank God!!!  I can not stay on the computer for hours ,  my eyes are just not good enough,  I guess!!  I only can see out of one eye you know. I am a mess, blind in one eye and deaf in one ear!!!
Zoie loves vegetables,  I am cooking for her and the critters as I write this.  Collard greens, red cabbage,
chard,, Balsamic vinegar and left over juices from our dinners that I save in the freezer until I need them for critter food.  Oh yes, the pot has rice in it too!! Zoie and the coons love this meal!!  I would say it is one of their favorites.
Zoie has a very big crate,  it came with her.  In her home before this one she had to stay in her crate for many many hours a day everyday.  She wanted nothing to do with that crate when she came and she would tear up any cover on her mattress almost every night.  She doesn't sleep in her crate any more----- Happy does!!!!!!!!!!!!  Happy has taken over Zoie's crate!!!!  This little cat is sleeping in this big dog crate!!  Zoie sleeps in her chair at night now.  All are happy!!!
Love coming your way,  Happy, Zoie & Fern

Happy in the garden

Happy loves to be in the garden with you when you work or even water.  It makes no difference who is in the garden,, she is out there supervising!!!!!
I wish I knew her story.  I wonder who had her first? Who spayed her?  How many litters of kittens she has had??   Why ( and thank God she did) she ended up with us?  HOW OLD IS SHE???????????????????????
I wish I knew her story!!!!

Zoie Runs

Picture # 2 is the one I was trying and trying to get b/c she does that kind of running a lot!!!   She will run with her ears turned inside out!!!  Can you see it???  Can you see she has her ears actually turned inside out in picture # 2 !!!!   I have never seen a dog run with there ears turned inside out!!!!  Have you ever seen this before!!!!  Maybe it is b/c she has big ears and they must flop a lot when running so she puts them back and inside out!!! I surely hope you can see what I am talking about................

Love coming your way, Zoie & Fern
