It isn't an easy task to hide stuff from Mom. All 4 of us had a difficult time with it, so we tried to stay away from her. Read more about her birthday surprises HERE and HERE.
Thank you to everyone who helped Mom celebrate her 60th birthday.

Stop over to Mom's blog and wish her a Happy 60th!
Whose life was a young woman’s scene,
Beauty school was right
And she raised hell at night
Then went to work for a beauty machine.
She was married but the marriage was bad
Except for the kids that she had
They were raised by her nearly
alone, for dad clearly
Was no help and that was quite sad.
So she started her business, with strife,
While trying to build a good life
Her beauty shop grew,
Her clients were true,
The kids aged, took a husband, a wife.
This person named Jean is now old
With opinions she speaks out quite bold
60 today it turns out,
A shame, it’s making her pout!
‘Cause 2 Grand-girls she’s got in the fold.
This old grandma who’s still known as Jean
Has developed a thumb that’s quite green
Her knowledge of plants she imparts
To her daughters, granddaughters hearts
And of gardens she is certainly a queen.
Now an epoch will seldom be seen
In this limerick style, somewhat mean
But in truth I will state
If you look at the slate
You could consider her epoch obscene.
Your mom said that you could sure smother.
You say "not like her a bit,"
But even you must admit,
Each year you get more like your mother!

I have three different colors of Dianthus in my rose garden. I was able to get pictures of two of them.

Well it isn't!!
In one day the bird feeder was half empty. We hardly saw any birds at the feeder. By the looks of his cheeks he is storing up for winter.
What the heck could that be??

The wild roses are in bloom. I love that a wild plant gives off such a wonderful scent.
We aren't sure what kind of plant this is. The seed ball is about the size of a baseball.
This tiny white flower is no bigger than your pinkie finger nail.
Here is a different type of Daisy. They are about the size of a quarter and the petals are very thin.

We went and got the new brakes. We got home and Chris was all set to change them. Next thing I knew he was back in the house making a phone call. They gave him the wrong brakes. Back to the store he went.
With all of the running around, he got the brakes done in a couple of hours. Thank God he knows how to do all this stuff or we would be in a lot of trouble.

I had to stop and take a few pictures of them.
