Forward - From the Heartland of Carolina

This is a continuing story of the journey Forward shared by 2 people, Lynne and Tom. Both love to LIVE life to it's fullest, which currently means spending lots of time outdoors, working on various projects from gardens to patios, flowers to vegetables, sunrises and sunsets, birds and woodland critters, and spending time with family. Don't forget to check the monthly archives, and please feel free to leave us a comment so we know you stopped by.

We're back, with LOTS of pictures

So many pictures, so little time. Well, not really, but it sounded cute (again, not really...) :-)

We were able to get away a couple evenings early in the Summer (thanks to the Hospice volunteers) to see some of Brad and Andrew's Civitan League baseball games.

Here's Brad, at the plate, and then beating out an infield hit for a single.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A couple of Andrew, who also was selected to the All-Star team this year.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
One big change we made this year was removing this Holly bush/tree. It had originally been planted way too close to the house, and was getting way too large to maintain where it was.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Amaryllis around the yard






~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Mom's room usually has a fresh boquet of flowers that either Lynne or Ruth pick and arrange. Here's just one of many she's had this year from the yard.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Some random May flowers






~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Once a week, usually, (if it's not too hot) Mom gets outside on the porches after the Hospice aide has been here and given her a sponge bath and washed her hair.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

More flowers




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We had a rare hailstorm on May 20th. The cool thing about the hailstones is that most of them were donut-shaped. It's not unheard of, but not very common, either, we've come to find out.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And more flowers.... it seems that people who visit this blog like our flowers ;-)











~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And more....










~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well, that's it for now...next up, June gatherings with family and friends... Birthdays, celebrations, and, of course, more shots from Heartland Gardens.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and visiting us. Leave us a note so we know you were here...

Peace, and God Bless...
