We purchased this dog about 1 1/2 years ago. He was the runt of the litter and so shy. So of course I chose him. He was so precious a big furry ball.   Look at him, isn't he adorable?

"Junior Johnson" Julius David Johnson, Jr.

August 29,2011

Today all of our Johnson Family, friends and loved ones are saying goodbye to this wonderful man. It is a sad day for us, but such a day it must be for him.

He lived his life in such a way that he was loved by all. There are so many wonderful people on this earth but some stand out as  "special"  and he is one of them.

We love you and know that all of our family members including my daddy have already greeted you along with our Lord.

We will see you one day and you will always be in our hearts.

Thank you God for giving us such a family.

RIP sweet uncle...

Spring & Summer at Hibiscus House

Who does not love Spring?  I know, I know allergy sufferers. How do I know?  I am one of them. Allergic to everything even to the grass beneath my feet. I have to say though I love Spring and Summer.  It is my most favorite time of the year.  Everything comes to life, birds are singing, fluttering around, and building nest such a happy time. It is a wonderful thing to see the grass growing turning green, flowers beginning to bloom everything is budding out.  Don't you just love to see the first blooms of Spring? .
I love flowers, shrubs, trees. My mama has the greenest thumb and I

Farm Fresh Eggs

 The colors are so beautiful, aren't they?

We love our chickens.  Don't you just love the wonderful eggs?  They taste so much better have more color and are healthier than the others.
You know what you feed them, so you can have piece of mind that your eggs are coming from the best source possible. 


I have found there is something that likes to grow in this sandy soil. Well something else along with the sandspurs. That is Eggplant. Dixie Lee Peas like it pretty well also. It has been so dry this season that the beans and peas have not done as good as usual.

The Dreaded Sandspur


The land here had been farmed mostly row crops as I understand it. We cleared a spot out for our new home to be built and it was such a hard job.  These things covered the place and everywhere we walked there they were attached to our clothes, socks even tennis shoes.  We had no place to step without getting them stuck on us..ugh...
