~ The Case of ...........

.........The Missing Rhubarb ..........
When we bought this house and land in 1985 , there was a rhubarb plant growing out were the dog kennel is now. Dh cleared the spot with the tractor for the dog kennel , it was awhile before I realized the rhubarb was gone. I have often thought about it and wished I would have moved it before he cleared that area , I didn't think about it at the time though. A few weeks ago while I was doing herbal study near the edge of the woods , off to the side of the garage I noticed a large leaf plant growing , so I've been watching it , wondering what it was. Last week I took another look , the leaves had got huge , so I pulled back the leaves to look at the stalk and realized it was the missing rhubarb. I was so surprised , I plan to dig it up this Fall and plant it in my herb garden.

So funny!lol! Got a kick
out of the title!

What a pleasent find!

I walked passed that little
old man's home with the red
barn and yellow white house.
He has the same type of cherry
trees growing close to the road.

I wish I had a cherry picker for
the ones in the park so I could
get the ones up higher.

God Bless You and yours!!!
