GETTING IN THE get DIRT under my nails...and a GIVE AWAY!!!!

Spring started out
 rather scary here 
in Western N.Y. this year...
(and the Winter was COLD and often pretty grey too)

~~~A GIVE AWAY!!~~~

I thought 
that the bulb plants
 were DOOMED!

It got me a little down
But then...........

Papa Mousiekin Said 
"Don't MOPE"!
 "Have a little Faith in God,
 He has it ALL under control"!

The grass withereth, the flower fadeth;
but the word of our God shall stand for ever.
     Isaiah 40:8

In May get a weed hook, 
a crotch and a glove,
and weed out such weeds, 
as the corn do not love.
For weeding of winter corn, 
now it is best;
but June is the better for 
weeding the rest.

Slack never thy weeding, 
death nor for cheap,
the corn shall reward it,
 ere ever ye reap;
And especially where ye
 do trust for to seed,
let that be well used,
 the better to speed.

..Fine basil desireth
 it may be her lot,
to grow as a gilliflower ,
 trim in a pot;
that ladies a gentles, 
to to whom ye do serve,
may help her, as needeth, 
poor life to preserve.
                                                        Thomas Tusser 1524-1580


Beloved, I wish above all things
that thou mayest prosper
and be in health,
even as thy soul prospereth.

~~~A GIVE AWAY!!~~~

        I would LOVE to send this "ENGLISH COTTAGE GARDENING" book
                          by Margaret Hensel (forward by Tasha Tudor)  
                             to one of my FRIENDS and FOLLOWERS!
      I have been pretty much an absentee blogger for quite a while. For the most part without Internet, and also at times my faulty computer. But this last year also held many
challenges with some death losses, health issues, and some financial obstacles .
Sometimes I could find myself pretty low and empty of words and thoughts. It was always a lift to visit your blogs from a cell phone though.(which only worked in the car...not me driving) But every now and then someone would pop over and leave a comment or email an encouraging note! These are things that warm the heart and create HOPE! THANK YOU FRIENDS for sticking with me!
  So I thought it would be a great idea to host my first give away! And show gratitude
 for your friendship!!

        All you have to do is show up in the comment box, maybe tell me which version of "The Garden" song you liked, or what you like best in your garden or why you would like this book! On June 6th your names will go into a tumbler and a name pulled!
             Many Blessings Warm Hugs and Lots of Love Linnie

Papa Mousiekin says:
"Press on"


Oh, spring came to my garden 
And caught it unaware 
Wearing just a few old leaves 
And a dejected air.

But when spring left my garden, 
Its work so deftly done, 
Many, many Daffodils
  Were dancing in the sun.
