The Beauty Berry

Last year when mom saw Wyatt's Beauty Berry bush she knew that she wanted one of these in our yard. 
Guess what?
She bought one this past weekend for 40% off! whooooohooooooo 
Yes, it's still very small but it has purple berries and it's just beautiful!

I was helping her plant her Beauty Berry when all of a sudden I heard a chipmunk teasing me!
 I'm coming to get you!
 You didn't know that I could move this fast for a senior girlie, did you? 
Think again you nasty chipper!
What a beautiful autumn day now that Mr. Chipper is out of my yard!
OMG, you're really not going to post this picture are you, mom?!
I had a piece of grass stuck on my tongue - no big deal!

Guess what?  You're not going to believe this because we still don't!
Mom won the gorgeous Home At Last Airedale quilt!  whooooooohoooooooo
We'll be watching for the mailman!


 
So until next time........

Love ya lots,
Maggie

What a beautiful bush! Can you do anything with the berries...or are they just ornamental?

Your mom is the luckiest mom in the world! The Airedale quilt is just gorgeous! And how fitting that it should be won by someone who had a hand in making it!

Aire-hugs,
Patches

The quilt totally rocks. Momma is jelly.

BTW - nothing wrong with a little grass stuck to your tongue to savor for later.

You show those pesky critters what for Miss Maggie - who do they think they are INVADING your yard. That is an awesome looking plant and you can't beat 40% off - and congrats to your mom for winning the quilt. Hmm I don't somehow think you and mitch will be allowed to snooze on it.

Sam said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch, yay Maggie - get rid of that chipmunk. I've seen squirrels and my dad says that they're kind of the same thing. I'd bark and chase it out of the yard too. We think that your mom is genuinely a nice person and because of that, has good fortune land on her on a regular basis and we think that's the way it should be. Oh yes, my brother Owen and I eat grass all the time.

Congrats on winning the quilt!! I've heard how very happy it makes your mommy!

The Beauty Berry wins my heart too! Too bad, we don't have it here.

I've never seen a chipmunk. I understand that you don't like it, but is it cute?
