Give-A-Way Winner and....

Well isn't this just a howdy do! The winner of my give-a-way is Lona over at http://lonadawn.blogspot.com/ , funny thing is she just won Tootsie's give-a-way as well. You go girl!! There were some interesting gardening experiences in the comments, thanks to everyone who entered.
Now, as I stated in the give-away post I am not into popularity contests nor does it really matter how many followers I have. ( it is fun to see so many , I won't lie about that) I try to visit all of the followers a few times a week, the problem is there is not a link for all of them. If you would like for me to visit you please make sure there is a link for me to click on. In the next couple of days I will be deleting those followers that do not have a link.
We received another 2 inches of rain yesterday...today is cool and in the 50's. This morning I have potted up some of my seedlings, I plan to get in the gardens and plant some Liatris later today....no telling what else..

These are the only two photos that were in my folder on this date of 2009. I just knew I would find some flower photos in there....Finally my Narcissus' are showing signs of buds...they are running a little late this year.


Today I am Thankful that one of our Middle Meduim Kids has done so well in math (she's 13 and in 8th grade) that she is at a Math Competition at the College!! Congrats Raech!

Way to go middle, medium college student! Gotta be thankful for those moments. I have one graduating H.S. in the spring. :/

Darla said...

Send your little goldfinches on up this way I have seed for them.
Congratulations to Lona and your wonderful middle kid.

Hey middle medium kid is a genius in my book! I hated math and took algebra in high school. Just made it with by the skin of my teeth. Tell her to show them all up.
Look at all of those Goldfinch in your yard. Before long they will start getting a bright yellow again.
We are slammed in with snow this morning. The trees are all hanging over and the electricity is blinking. It is a beautiful snow but I just want it all gone. LOL!

I cannot believe I won again.I am so excited girl! Makes three times here lately. I do not think I will leave the house. I just used up all my good luck because believe me I never win anything. Thank you so much Darla for sponsoring the contest and congrats to you.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Darla, I have been following you for awhile, but cannot get onto your followers list due to some kind of Google glitch. I have tried over and over again to fix it. Do you have a I recommend list. That is how I keep up with blogs I want to follow. I have you on mine and every time you put up a new post it goes to the top of my list on the sidebar. Blessings

Dorothy said...

Congratulations to your daughter!!
Way to go! Congrat, also to Lona for being the lucky winner! Nice pictures. Is that a Pine Warbler?

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Darla, I don't worry too much about who is 'following' me... Probably about 1/3rd or more of my followers are people who NEVER leave comments. I don't know if they even truly follow my blog... Maybe they are just 'lurkers'...

The people I do care about are those who DO comment on my blog. Those are the people "I" follow--and I keep up with that list regularly. IF someone quits commenting on my blog, I usually drop them from my followers list.

Good Luck!!!!! It's not easy keeping up with folks...

Congrats to your daughter. She's smart like her MAMA.

We have a little more snow here this morning--just a dusting but pretty.

Crystal said...

Congrats to Lona. Wow an accompishment for the 13 year old.
I am glad to see green in your garden.
As you can tell on my blog, all we have is snow and wind to look at.
Thanks for sharing and have a blessed weekend.

Looks like Lona is on a roll! :)
Good luck to your daughter, that's awesome!

Becca's Dirt said...

Congrats to Medium Kid for loving math and being so good at it. Hope you win. I know you're proud.

Wish I was planting something. I hope to get into the dirt a little as long as I feel like it anyway. I'm still a little weak but much better.

Noelle said...

Hi Darla,

I hope your planting goes well today! As a mom of 5, I know how great it is to have one of your kids excel in math!

Darla: Congrats to Raech, nice Goldfinch photo.

Valerie said...

Congrats to your eighth grader! That is something to be proud of. It is in the 30's here with the wind blowing. I am so ready for spring. It suppose to rain or even snow Tues and Wed. I am about over it. Hope you are still doing good. I have been praying for you.

leavesnbloom said...

Hi Darla hope you're still on the mend. Lona congratulations on winning again. I've one ( the budding explorer) just like yours Darla who excels in maths compared to his peers. I've not seen any goldfinches around here yet.

Twisted Fencepost said...

Congratulatins, Lona!
Goodluck middle, medium kid!

Blossom said...

You must be one proud mom, Darla. Yaahoooo ...

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Hi Darla: Sorry I am behind on things here. The phone lines have been down from the snow storm so I will try to catch up. I live in zone 5.
In all of the confusion yesterday i never noticed you had started a new blog. I like the black background it makes your pictures jump right out. Have a great Sunday!

Tom said...

Maths left me way behind, so you tell Lona what she is doing now will last her a life time... and the benifits of learning it all so young will reep dividends for her...
I have a post up today Darla with made me think of you.... if you get time pop by and enjoy the blooms.
