Hi Everyone! I hope this blog post finds you all well. I cannot believe the end of May will be here tomorrow! Where did the time go. There has been alot of things going on here.
Scott and I have been busy! We went up to his property and planted 3 apple trees and 1 peach tree.
|Here is one of the apple trees we planted.|
I was so excited because the mountain laurel was blooming. I love mountain laurel. It was everywhere! Here are a few photos of the mountain laurel and a few photos of the property.
|This is an old tobacco barn on the property.|

Scott and I then went to NJ to visit my Mom, sister, Sue, her husband, Chuck, my nephew, Troy and his Fiancee, Ashe. We spent 4 days up there (well really 3 because we left to come home on the 4th day). We had a wonderful time with all of them. They loved Scott also. I showed Scott all around where I grew up. We went out to dinner with my Mom and Sue to The Green Olive. We also went through Stokes State Forest for a lovely drive and saw a bear (missed it with the camera-darn!). We went passed all the houses I have lived in and got some yummy bagels, hard rolls and hoagie rolls to take back with us! It was such a wonderful time!
|This is the brook by our old farm John and I owned. It is an abandoned railroad bed. Scott and I took a lovely walk by here.|
|Dame's Rockets growing along the abandoned rr bed. So sweet smelling-just wonderful!|
|We had a visitor while we were walking. She didn't even seemed bothered by us!|
|Mysel and sister, Sue (standing) my Mom sitting. We were having dinner at The Green Olive.|

This past Saturday all 3 of Scott's kids graduated from High School. We are so proud of them. The boys (Ben and Mason) are fraternal twins and Katelyn did an excelerated program and graduated a year early.

Scott and I also walked one morning earlier in the month at a beautiful park in Salisbury.

I made one of my favorite cakes yesterday. It is a chocolate wafer cake. So good. I have also attached a few other photos of things for this month.

|This is the full bouquet of roses. They are gorgeous in person!|
|Mother's Day, Mason and I created a veggie garden for him. He is into 18th century ways, so he is planting this garden the 18th century way. So far his 3 black peanut plants are doing really well and 1 strawberry plant. The corn hasn't come up yet.|
|My strawberries are blooming again and have some strawberries set again. The last ones were so good!|
|When I was down in SC at my house, I snipped these roses. They were so pretty. I also got 2 strawberries out of my garden there.|
Well I hope June is going to be a good month. I hope my house in Lake City sells really soon. Everyone have a lovely day!
