The blooms on my tulip tree are coming and going so quickly!

I’m hoping that I’m going to be able to tell you about some really exciting news this afternoon. Please check back! I can hardly wait to tell you!

UPDATE: I’m going to have to wait a few more days until I can tell you! (A few pesky details.)

    Dum-da-dum-dum!

    You might want to consider work in the PR area — hyping the gate for new films and the like.

    Hunger Games, anyone?

    Everyone has an idea of what it may be..My prayer for you is that “Stringtown Farm Sold” that would be the ultimate way to move forward!!
    Like everyone else I will be waiting/ checking to see!!!

    I’m guessing I’m not your ONLY reader busy waiting, thinking, wondering and pondering what words and photos you will post about that of which we have no idea!

    Another day, another vicarious moment :)

    I’m betting it has something to do with four hooves and a name that begins with the letter “P”…

    Interesting you call that a tulip tree. It looks like our magnolias. Up here, tulip poplars have yellow flowers!

    I agree with Old Geezer…effective hype

    BTW: Tuliptree is named for the appearance of its showy flowers and the silhouette of its large leaves, both of which resemble tulips. It is also known as Tulip Poplar and Yellow Poplar, in reference to the fluttering of its leaves like those of the Poplars, and for the yellow colors of both its flowers and fall foliage.

    Native throughout most of the Eastern United States, it quickly reaches a height of 80 feet and a breadth of 40 feet, but it can grow much taller. As a member of the Magnolia Family, it is related to the Magnolias (including Cucumbertree) and the only other Tuliptree (Chinese Tuliptree).

    Dear Suzanne,
    Tired of standing by, gonna sit a spell. Probably lay down after that.

    My Aunt Jean Bean used to say, Good news is worth waiting for, don’t wait on the bad news, it will find you anyway.

    Will check back tomorrow!

    Our Tulip tree bloomed early due to the heat wave (9 days of 85+ degree weather) and lost most of it’s pretty flowers within 3 days. Today it rained and the tree is just about bare, which makes me sad. A neighbor’s lilac tree is blooming. Is it still March in Indiana?

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
