Sunflowers and family.
my family came to visit or was it to drive me crazy, My sister Deb, hubby Dan, Breanna, Casey. They spent a week with us and Dan  worked his but off and now I have a beautiful garden and a brick path that I didn't know I had, he also cleaned up around the sheds and help build a chook pen.
Can you see Ted our dog he hide in the bathroom and was having nothing to do with the kids at all.

Here we are painting eggs for Easter, Breanna in
 the white shirt has Downs and is so full on and she just never stops, always doing something, she wears me out just trying to get things done.
here she is and has painted her tongue with green paint just cause she can. Easter bunny was happy with the eggs the kids painted and he left them lots of yummy eggs to make them hypo and drive poor Aunt glenda mad,!!!!!  lol.
Check out our sunflower growing in the drain from bird seed that we had thrown out and washed down with the rain. It is so amazing and so big, that's my hand.

Here are the girls sitting on
 Glenn's lawn mover , well
Casey is sitting and Bre is running behind her, they spent hours on it and running around the yard.
Deb and Dan sitting in the middle of my road waiting for Ash to come down,Ash is Debs daughter but lives with her boyfriend up here, Deb lives in Newcastle so when they come up Ash comes down and we all hang out, going op shopping, lib, craft shop, IGA. you know all the sites of town, although we only have about 10 shops in town so it doesn't take to long and we are home again.But its fun...
Even Rosey had Easter treats.Its the first real pig the kids have seen and cant believe its the little baby pig I bought to Newcastle to show them last year.
Hope you have fun reading have lots more to show you,I let Breanna run around with my camera and she took 321 photos some are pretty good others you cant tell wait they are loll, Will show next post,. love you all and thanks for coming, don't let the bedbugs bite and until next time.,.,.goodnite  love glenda  xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Hello Glenda. You have a happy family from what I read. And the sunflower is really BIG!

ps: sorry for this late comment. I was out from internet for 3 days. :(

Wow, what fun your girls appear to be having in the photos! My youngest son has Autism and he often does things "because he can" so I can totally relate to painting the tongue green!

That was such a fun read, I don't blame your dog for hiding in the bath with all that going on.

Hi Glenda!
I love all of your pictures! What an interesting life you have! Ted in the bath tub is especially precious! :)
When you visited my blog you asked when is it best to harvest gourds. Here is what I learned "The best time to harvest gourds is when they're done growing and are curing... You can tell if a gourd is done growing by looking at its stem right next to the gourd. If it has started to shrivel, turn brown and dry, then the gourd is done growing and it can be harvested. The body of the gourd may still be green, but the dried stem means that the gourd is not receiving any more nutrients from the vine, is in the process of being 'hardened off', and may be harvested if you just feel the need to do so. To harvest, simply cut the stem very close to the vine away from the gourd using a sharp knife or trimming shears. Don't just twist it off. Leave as much of the stem on the gourd as possible. One reason for this is you may want to use the stem to hang them by to complete the drying process." Here is a good Q&A link: http://www.amishgourds.com/site/1278922/page/456711
Good luck!
Terrielee :)
