Mimi turned 91 last week and she still has an adorable smile just like she did back when she was five. I found this old newspaper clipping and thought I would share it with yawl.
I planted the supertunias with the hot pink geranium that I got at Martins in Murfreesboro. The following photos are also of plants I got at Martins.




The white petunias hung down so far, they covered the cat holder so I have moved them to a black iron plant holder which is much taller. I have put a pot of purple jew on the cat holder.





I always like to put red geraniums near the humming bird feeders. We are beginning to get more visitors even though the honeysuckle is in full bloom in the wild.
We celebrated Mimi Burpday for a couple of days. Having Cousin Bill over on the real day and I had fried chicken, potato salad, cole slaw and fresh green beans and to top it off a fudge brownie cake with vanilla ice cream. The next night we met Edward and his family at the local Las Palmas . Their food is always good and Mimi got a Margarita to celebrate. The family had to promise not to tell them that it was her burpday as she does not wish people singing to her in public nor did she want whip cream put on her nose.
Ever since her hip replacement, she has done marvelous. Her legs bothers her a little but she does not complain.
The kitty justice is we all have pretty flowers to watch bloom and years of good life to celebrate.


Here's my little cedar chair that was made from our tree. The kitty justice is I almost forgot this photo. LOL

Dear Dianne ~~ Your flowers are lovely and the chair just great.
I am glad Mimi had a good birthday
and is doing well after her hip
replacement. I am glad you liked the cowboy joke and the saving things for special occasions is very true. The pic of Mimi at five is a treasure.
Thanks for the encouragement about my aneurysm treatment. I will be glad to get the word and know what is ahead. Take care, my friend,
Love, Merle.

Glad you like my flowers. It has been cool and I have been taking my white petunia and chocolate soldier in nightly plus during our 5 inches of rain on Saturday. I love that picture of Mimi as it shows the little imp she has told us about. Take care and Peace
