My First Home Grown Carrots

I am so excited to share with you my home grown carrots that I just harvested. Now, some of you have probably grown your own carrots and they might be bigger than mine, but that's OK.

Welcome to the Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Put CO HOST BLOG HOP as the subject line so that we don’t miss your inquiry. Be sure to include your website URL in the email and we will get back to you with more details.

You're The Star - Home Feature Week

Welcome to another week at You're The Star. So glad that you dropped by. I can't wait to see what you will be sharing. Have a great week.


by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo YoureTheStarHopLarge_zpsjbrldhcx.jpg

WELCOME to the April "You're the Star" Blog Hop!

Before we continue onto the party I wanted to share a picture from our recent trip:


My son and his family came to Florida for their spring break and we went to Universal for a few days. The park is great and Volcano Bay is terrific. So nice to spend some time with family and the grand kids.

Although it might be more expensive to stay at one of the hotels on Universal, it is so worth it. You can take the boat to the park; you can pick up your tickets in the lobby, and the food was incredible.

Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to the Over The Moon Link Party

I think summer is here in southern Florida. We had some really warm weather the last few days. It seems as though it is warming up in the north as well. I bought my grand kids home to Vermont (after vacationing with them) and it is in the 50s today and sunny.

Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome back to the Happiness is Homemade Link Party

I know some of you are still digging out of the snow, but Spring is officially here and along with it comes delicious flavors and outdoor style.  This week's features are some of my favorite flavors: strawberries, asparagus and rhubarb. Plus, I've included a nifty way to update your outdoor pillows and a very important post all bloggers should read about bots in your e-mail list.  
 

On with this week's features!

 

 This Asparagus Quiche from Looney for Food would be great for a Mother's Day Brunch.
 This Rhubarb Crusted Shortbread Bars from Savory Moments makes me wish I had planted some rhubarb this year. Hopefully I can get some from the CSA or Farmer's Market.
 

Old Fashioned Strawberry Dessert from Sew Historically looks both simple and scrumptious with it's homemade custard and sugared strawberries.

 Yes, Playdates to Parties Spray Painted her Patio Cushions! Find out how she did it and what tips she has if you want to try it.
 

And finally, I had to add this extra feature 7 Things You Must Do if Bots Invade Your EMail List from Bluesky at Home for my fellow bloggers since I just discovered this problem in a list of mine recently too.

                                                       

Now, let's get started now with this week's party. While you are here, we'd love it if you would visit the blogs of our lovely co-hosts!

Welcome to the Over The Moon Link Party

We finally had some rain here in southern Florida. I am always amazed how much better everything does after a rain storm compared to watering.

Happiness Is Homemade


Welcome back to the Happiness is Homemade Link Party

Growing your own herbs is a healthy way to add flavor to your foods. And most are really easy to grow. So even if you have a brown thumb, you might want to try growing some of your own herbs to have on hand for the evening meal. This week's features are three fun herb garden planters plus every gardener's nightmare - dandelions! Actually, they are quite delicious. -Audrey from That Recipe  

On with this week's features!

Mother's Day Paper Woven Heart

Spring is an exuberant season, as flowers and grasses pop up in all their colorful glory. You can purchase Mother’s Day baskets, of course…but there’s nothing like a homemade paper basket that your child can make. 


Help her/him make a Mother’s Day basket with her own handwritten message attached or some faux flowers. Okay, if you’re the mom setting this up, it may spoil some of the surprise, but don’t forget: you can also make this one for grandma, or for some other really cherished maternal figure in your family’s life.
