A shrub with special meaning.....

This shrub came from my garden at our other house..........but originated from Popster's Grandmother's yard.  She was an amazing lady from good Polish stock & lived across the street from us.  She mowed her own lawn with an old-fashioned push mower until well into her 80's.  I finally hd to resort to going over at the crack of dawn so I could mow for her.
I have moved this several times & have finally found the perfect spot for is a type of spirea ....I think Van Houte but am not positive.
It was so beautiful this year.........
.........the perfect memory of ......
........a beautiful lady!
Her name was Magdelina........... that's what I call this shrub.



  1. What a lovely tribute and a beautiful flower.

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
