Happy (early) 4th of July! In case you're planning a party or get together with friends and family, I thought I would share some of my favorite ideas for the holiday. Two years ago we threw a 4th of July party/cookout right after we moved into our house. It was a lot of fun. I made bunting from scrapbook paper and ribbon and painted terracotta pots to hold festive flowers on the deck. I also made a red, white and blue layer cake... yum! And of course, dressing up the dogs is always fun on a holiday. A red, white, and blue bandanna looks super cute! Here are some other great ideas from Pinterest. Click the picture to take you to the source. Aren't those some awesome ideas? Happy 4th of July!!

Cut out as many flowers as possible. Re-roll the scraps and cut more flowers, you should be able to get 12 flower shaped dough pieces. Center each flower over a mini muffin depression. Fold alternate petals inward, and gently push the dough down into the bottom. Gently push the outer petals against the muffin pan sides, then push the inner 3 petals against the sides and outer 3 petals. You will end up with a flower shaped unbaked tart shell. Prick each of the bottoms of the unbaked dough shells with a fork, twice. Bake at 425 degrees for about 5-7 minutes until golden brown. Remove to a plate. Fill each shell with a few teaspoons of lemon curd. Dust the powdered sugar over the tops. Voila!

patio/garden lemon tree
I hope you all had a good and restful weekend. I spent the better part of my weekend tending my plants. I don't have a green thumb or deep pockets to keep replacing plants that die an untimely death while under my care. Fortunately for me, Home Depot has a good return policy so my Fiddle fig tree has been returned and I'm trying once again to grow one. While at Home Depot I noticed they had a lot fruit trees out and was wondering how well the trees would fare in this Texas weather. After speaking with the associate in the garden center I was told the trees could grow with no problem. But in order for them to produce fruit a lot of work and effort would have to be put into their care in the first year. So there will be no planting of a fruit tree in my yard. But alas! I have options!!! Wait for it...a Meyer lemon tree! From what I have read, they grow relatively easy inside or outdoors. The lemons are said to produce fruit that is sweet and less tart than the regular supermarket varieties. The trees can grow anywhere from 6-12ft high and produce fruit all year. Winter is when the tree yields the most fruit and my favorite tidbit I found out about the Meyer lemon tree is...it grows in Texas! So wish me luck! I'm on the hunt for a Meyer lemon tree they have been sold out locally but when I purchase one I will let you all know. Until next time. Tweet
GERANIUMS Place upside down in cardboard box or paper bag.....cover with newspaper and store in garage, inside wall. Do not let plants freeze. Leave them in box 'till Spring when you replant them in fresh new soil (miracle grow) works well. Plant will start growing new leaves within a week. Do not cut any stems away for at least 6 weeks, plant will double in size.
