Wednesday Words...Pregnant Onion

My Pregnant Onion Plant has babies....
Only the mature Onions will flower...tiny white or sometimes yellow flowers. See the little buds?
Have you heard of this plant before...? I have had them around so long I often over look their uniqueness... Thanks Jen at http://muddybootdreams.blogspot.com for hosting Wednesday Words.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

On The Road Again....

Last evening my hubby drew the next destination for Biblo.... Drumroll please................

Get ready Carla from TEXAS at http://amellowlife.blogspot.com/ ! Perhaps Bilbo got his partying out of his system for a while...(no promises though)

Remember to go to the original post, READ and FOLLOW all of the rules....my daughter made Biblo a pillow that is in his cup with him, she also drew a picture of him for Dirt Princess. Please make sure these items along with the other items from England continue with Bilbo back home to Dirt Princess at the end of his six month journey.

The items wrapped in tissue paper are for you to keep Carla!! Do enjoy Bilbo....

Last Chance To Enter For "Busy" Bilbo ! !

After Bilbo's late night last night with hubby, I finally got him to wake up about 11 this morning..
Buckled him in the car and off we went to the nursery.
Bilbo is on the left of the wall..
He really didn't have much to say on this outing.
After some aspirin and a greasy hamburger for lunch he was ready to visit Ms. Doris three doors down.
Bilbo was so curious about all of Ms. Doris' birdhouses and wondered if he could live in one of them.

There always seems to be a girl that he thinks he's in love with. (this girl should see the way Bilbo treated the girl last night)

Like this Bear wasn't tired enough...Bilbo had to jump on his head..

Bilbo realized that even as small as he is he couldn't fit in any of the birdhouses. He found their view of the world quite interesting though.

I, for one am glad that today was a little less hectic with the very 'Busy' Bilbo.

Last chance to enter to have Bilbo visit your gardens. Will choose the next garden after church tomorrow.


He got his ride in the wheelbarrow.. Then hubby came home from work and Bilbo hung out with him....uh oh!

This is where I found him this morning........sigh.

Rules are posted a couple of posts before this one...drawing in the morning....I will do one more post on Bilbo's Adventures in Tallahassee this evening.

Bilbo Is A Busy Boy!

Bilbo that's not a hammock. Seriously now, get out of there!
Ahh, the sweet smell of Jasmine.
Dang ya'll, look at the size of this pear!
Bilbo, Bilbo, we do not water the caterpillars and chrysalis'.
No Bilbo this is not a swing..
Where is Bilbo now.......oh, hiding on my husband's old work boot...get out of there!
No I will not push you around in the wheelbarrow Bilbo. You'll have to wait until the youngest medium kid gets home from school.
Good grief Bilbo...it really is for the birds.
I see you found Tootsie's crown. No Bilbo I don't believe it will fit you.
Okay Bilbo. Enough with games this morning...get out of the fish bowl.
Bilbo was too tired to take photos last evening, but when you woke up this morning...It was on!
I can only imagine what this afternoon will be like.....
Remember if you comment you will be in the draw to have Biblo visit your gardens...rules in the last post.


Anyone have a clue what this is? I picked up a small piece of this at the local nursery off of the floor and brought it home stuck (placed) it in some soil...it was around the Sedums..it's growing.. I took this photo of the back of my Full Sun Garden from the side porch.
Blue Daze (photo does not do it justice)
The girls call this the Island Bed..this is what our neighbors see when they drive by. There are two Blueberry Bushes at either end between this bed and the Full Sun Garden..thinking about removing the strip of grass and connect the two.......oh, I don't know...
Ragin Cajun Ruellia....still going strong.
A random shot of the Full Sun Garden.
Run on over to http://tootsietime.blogspot.com and flaunt those flowers!
Ms. Doris, look at the Angel Wing Begonia you rooted for me..

Now let the fun begin!!!
Bilbo arrived yesterday afternoon from England at http://nipitinthebud.wordpress.com This is what was written on the side of the box.
I could hear his muffled cries from inside the very hot package.
Always smiling, Bilbo took a deep breath and enjoyed the coolness of the air conditioning.
He did put up a fuss about me wanting to take more photos of him last night. So we agreed to let him relax and start the real fun today.
In the package were some neat brochures about things in England, a Buckingham Palace bookmark, and some Hedgerow Jelly. Thanks for the gifts!
I will be posting about Bilbo today thru Sunday. If you would like a chance to have Bilbo visit your gardens please leave a comment on any post today until Sunday. I will combine all comments and draw a name on Sunday afternoon. Hopefully I will be able to have mailing info exchanged and have Bilbo on his way Monday morning! GOOD LUCK!
