A Birthday Garden

I received a vegetable garden for my birthday! On the way home from church we stopped at "Osh" and bought the vegetables. Then I got busy! It's very simple—just a few plants—but I'm excited. I spent the afternoon digging. I have a Roma tomato plant, 2 cherry tomato plants, six types of chili peppers (including jalapeno), and 3 yellow bell pepper plants. I'll take another photo in about a month. It will be fun to see how they change!



Secondly, my mom's gift to me was a haircut (we're very practical people) and highlights. Thanks mom!

A girlfriend and I went for a walk in a beautiful neighborhood today. We enjoyed the big old homes and their gardens. Afterwards we enjoyed a unique yogurt/creme cheese cup in a pastry shop.

I also went out to dinner with my husband, last night, and had a great time!

Okay, I'll be brave and tell you how old I am. 51!!

Sounds like you had a very enjoyable & relaxing b-day. I looove tomatoes, especially the cherry size. I eyeballed some of the plants yesterday as well but its not QUITE warm enough here yet. Next weekend perhaps.

Hot peppers? Yikes, you're a brave girl. I, unfortunately have a very mild & wimpy pallet that flames when I eat anything beyond mild. LOL Can't wait to see your garden again as it flourishes!

Hooray for a new do. That's always a pick-me-up! I'm ready for something too.

Your garden looks nice! I love a day at the salon too! Us girls need a hair-do pick me up day. And the yogurt sounded delicious! And what can I say about walks? Fun... oh and dinner too... how romantic.

And Sharon, I'd never guess your age. You go girl! Riding that cycle. I'm trailing ten years behind you, but will be there soon! My hubby is half-way there :)
