It is the VETERAN, who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the VETERAN, who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the VETERAN, who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the VETERAN, who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the VETERAN, who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the VETERAN, who salutes the Flag,

It is the VETERAN, who serves under the Flag,

We can be very proud of our young men and women in the armed services no matter where they serve, and to all those that have served this country before them for the sacrifices that they and their families have made to provide all of us these freedoms.j

Birds and blooms

Iowa. Snow on the ground in the morning and mowed in the afternoon.
The birds are back and some I have not seen before.

 The dove is such a soft color looks like velvet.

A robin is trying to build a nest on a drain pipe.It is a really messy nest in not a good place.We will see if she succeeds.


My 1st fern peony has 4 buds this year.

 The tulips and daffodils did not freeze off this year. Just starting to bloom.
This 2nd tiny fern peony was a root I found and planted. It has been a struggle but this year it is growing.I think spring might be here. We can hope. j

We have been busy planting potatoes,corn,peas, cauliflower and broccoli. Monday the forsythia bush was blooming.I went out and cut a bouquet for the table.
 Good thing because this is what it looks like today.Then old man winter decided to have one last party.

Green grass by the camper.The birds were happy to have the dry spot under the camper this morning.

This is the bridal wreath leaves covered with heavy wet snow.

I had picked up a flat of impatience.
Did not plant any will keep them in the greenhouse for a while. Last year I had trouble finding red impatience so thought I would get them when I could. I am linking to.Go visit there are is spring some places.

 Ziva is growing and went out in the snow this morning for the first time. Fun to watch. Her belly was dragging with those short little legs .Mr.T. had to scoop the snow off the grass so she could do her business.

 . Mr.T gets on the floor to play.What a sweet baby girl she is.She is a joy.Hope your days are good. j
