Here is the Rhubarb Crunch that I made this morning from my very own rhubarb.

Here's my Rhubarb Crunch after someone took a piece out of it. Oh yeah, that was me. "Life's short, eat dessert first!"
Memorial Day, May 30, 2011 - Before the very bad, severe thunderstorm hit (twice) yesterday, I cut some rhurbarb from the patch in the back yard.

It was too scary to make it yesterday, what with all the lightning and thunder and heavy downpours, so I made it this morning about 8 a.m. I haven't made it in 6 years.

The last time I made it was for Grandma Burkholder. She took a couple of pieces with her when she left our house for the last time and we never saw her alive again.

She totally enjoyed it. That was why I gave her the last two pieces. God bless Grandma. And God bless the ones who gave their lives for our country - we remember them on Memorial Day. Amen. ~djb

Here's Andrew and Jarrett's evergreen trees in Blackberry Cemetery. They are such happy trees.
Saturday, May 28, 2011 -I just realized that I put MY tree picture on Andrew and Jarrett's blogger blog website. duh! Hey, it's early...what can I say!

This past week, I put one of my little gardening shovels in the trunk and finally got in to the cemetery to put three evergreen fertilizer spikes around each boys' tree.

I do it in the spring and the fall. Right after I took care of business, we had tons of rain the next so that helps the fertilizer get into the roots. It has been a tree week for me.

Arbor Day is EVERY day. haha bye, djb

That looks like two guys up in my big maple tree. Yikes!
Friday, May 6, 2011- Yesterday, the tree trimming guys finally came to do what else??? Trim the trees!!! yeah!

They were here from just before 8 a.m. until just after 3 p.m. And they worked like troopers all day long.

I was so glad that they got here BEFORE the flowering crab started flowering because that's when the bees arrive en masse. Of course, there won't be as many flowers this year but the tree is more open and maybe some grass will grow underneath.

It's a gorgeous day today. I'm going to mow for the second time this year. Can't wait. It's supposed to get up to 68 degrees. For us, that's like a heat wave.

Better skedaddle. See ya later, djb
