A Little Bit Of This And That

 Hi Everyone 😀

Hope you're all well! 

I thought I would share some pictures of the backyard. 

Lots of Lily of the valley this year. 

Black tulips are blossoming. 
I always keep my "weeds". If mother nature wants to give me free flowers, I keep them. 

I love what CJ wrote about dandelions. 
The only flower that represents the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars. 

Love birds. 

Everything is growing! 

Mom finished her next puzzle. It's called 299 cats and a dog. Can you spot the dog? LOL! And, yes, the pink sandals in the background are mine 😄

Mother's Day flowers. 
I've started a new painting! 


I got my first shot, this past Friday. The nurse was great! I didn't even feel the needle go in. I only had a soar arm, nothing else.
Take care!
Big Hugs 💗


  1. Everything's so beautiful, Stacy! And don't you just love the scent of Lily of the Valley? So powerful for such a tiny flower!

  2. Love your garden and your art.
    Smiling at your pink sandals too.
    I went cross-eyed looking for the dog - and failed.

  3. Your garden is beautiful! Congratulations on getting your first shot!

  4. Congrats on being vaccinated! I get my second one next week, so excited! Your garden looks great. All flowers are flowers to me, and I love dandelions. Looking forward to seeing your new painting finished! Hugs, Valerie

  5. Cool color of tulips.
    That's a crazy puzzle.

  6. Congrats on getting vaccinated!
    Good Luck with your new painting!
    The flowers in your pictures are gorgeous, and so are the two tiny birds!
    Yes, I think I've spotted the dog in the puzzle.

  7. Your yard is looking beautiful Stacy! I love that you keep the dandelions. We cherish our weeds too since we see bees enjoying them. That puzzle looks tricky, but fun! Congratulations on receiving your first shot. It is a great feeling being vaccinated. We are even able to enter some stores now without the old days!

  8. Your garden is glorious! What a fun puzzle and yes, I found the dog. 😺 Yay for getting your first vax and no side effects. Take care.

  9. oh i love your backyard blooms dear Stacy :)

    glad you shared ,i am so happy spring arrived in your lovely world eventually
    your dandles are adorable
    good for your dear mom to keep mind busy with puzzles :)

  10. Your yard looks like a luscious dream, my sweet Stacy. I'm especially taken by the black tulip--I must grow one!

    I'm very glad you got your first shot, and extremely happy you suffered no adverse effects.

  11. Wow Stacey your flowers are amazing. Those black tulips are just stunning. I have never seen them before. So glad your mom is doing puzzles. The doctor said that is the best thing for the brain. I can't wait to see you new painting. Congrats on the vax. Have a wonderful day.

  12. Suerte con tu nueva pintura. Me gustan tu flores en especial el tulipan negro , Felicidades por tu vacuna , Te mando un beso

  13. Your flower pics are so lovely! I epecially love the purple Mother's Day flowers!!

    Cool puzzle, too! I am still trying to find the DOG LOL!!!!

  14. Lovely post.
    I enjoyed seeing your garden photographs and the lovely flowers, everything looks good.

    The Mother's Day flowers look lovely and that puzzle is great.

    So pleased you've had your first vaccination ...

    Enjoy these last few days of May.

    All the best Jan

  15. Your yard looks great! I tried to keep the weeds for awhile but here we have to keep everything fairly clean off the forest floor because of fire danger - we have deadlines in June to have it all cleaned up. Pine needles are such a problem here. That cat puzzle wow, looks involved. Hope all is well and you are enjoying creating!

  16. Looking for the cats made me dizzy, never mind trying to find the dog. An interesting puzzle. Now here is an idea for your Mom - send a high res image of one of your paintings to one of those online outfits that will convert images into jigsaw puzzles.

  17. Your garden looks so nice! Your pink shoes made me chuckle. I just bought purple sneakers a few weeks ago. Color inspires us! So happy to see you have your first shot and glad you had mild symptoms. Have a wonderful week!

    1. Thx for the message on my blog! Envisioning your baby crows doing a rain dance in my head! LOL!

  18. Your garden is beautiful!!! And those Mother's day flowers, wow, what a color, so gorgeous!!! I see the dog! Gonna write you today...big hugs!!!

  19. What a wonderful garden. I really love that the weed is part of it. Bless your heart Stacy💕
    What a fun puzzle mom did. I will try and find the dog. Lol!!! Excited about your new painting. Wish you good days with a lot of sun and brightness. Big hugs and love 💕

  20. I love all the flowers in your yard. Even the weeds! Hugs!

  21. lovely garden
    lovely mauve roses
    lovely pink shoes

  22. I love your garden. Such beautiful flowers. I take the free weeds/flowers from Mother Nature too. Love them! Lots of inspiring sights out there for sure. :)

  23. So many wonders on this post, especially you getting vaccinated and no side affects. Woo Hoo!

  24. Awww all your flowers are super cute

  25. I have been a little bit absent. Dont know why, so I missed a couple of your posts. But I went back and looked, read. Girl, I just have to say again, you must...must...find a gallery to place your paintings. They are getting more and more colorful and awesome. I love, love!!

  26. Yay, both for getting your first shot done and no side effects. LOL, I felt like I was young again after my second shot - specifically me, at college age the morning after I pulled an all-nighter. But it wasn't anything naps and good tea couldn't help. I'm so happy that you are one step closer to being fully vaccinated.

    I have black tulips too. I love they way they look next to the cherry blossom tree in full bloom.

  27. Can't wait to see more of your new painting;)

  28. Like you, I did go out to get my shot too, and there was no waiting at all. In fact, I was the only person in the pharmacy. Such wonderful pictures, and that puzzle looks absolutely beautiful. Yes, those sandals are fun. Hope you're doing well! Hugs, RO

  29. Beautiful flowers! I like all these photos.

  30. I found the dog! It's a hot dog :)

  31. I was surfing today and found your name in a comment section. Sorry, I can’t remember where it was now. I enjoy looking at different blogs and am so glad I found you. I love your art and this is a beautiful post and your photos are great! I have crows visit often when I fill the bird feeders. They are as welcome as any. I have always enjoyed them, a funny and intelligent bird. Have a great week and I will enjoy visiting you.
