Bird in a Bush, by Beverly Hicks Burch

It appears it’s been a fruitful spring around here this year. We had a nest of barn swallows in the corner of the front porch. It amazed me how fast they were grown and out of the nest and flying. Just two weeks ago they were tiny little “angry birds” complaining every time my flash… Continue reading Bird in a Bush, by Beverly Hicks Burch

This Too Shall Pass, by Beverly Hicks Burch

The very last words I heard her speak were, “I love you, baby.” That was just over a week ago. Those will be the last words I will ever hear my aunt speak.

Keepers of the Garden, by Beverly Hicks Burch

First, let me begin this by saying, “I am NOT a hoarder!” But, I do have little eclectic collections of things I like to gather. Lately it’s been items to add whimsy and fun to the garden, decks and outdoors. The first one is dedicated to someone I call my littlest angel. This young man… Continue reading Keepers of the Garden, by Beverly Hicks Burch

A What?! Yes, a Balloon Plant, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Blue is one of my favorite colors and it just so happens to also be one of T & H’s favorite colors, too. We’re simpatico like that . It’s not always easy finding a blue flower for the garden and try finding a blue flower that just might draw hummingbirds or butterflies. Well, several years… Continue reading A What?!

Angry Birds, by Beverly Hicks Burch

A couple of weeks ago I walked out onto my nice big front porch, looked around and thought, “Good grief, who or what has turned my porch into a poop deck?!” There was bird poopy on handrails and in a certain corner of the floor. I happened to gaze upward and immediately got an answer… Continue reading Angry Birds, by Beverly Hicks Burch

While my little Momma has been sick and in the hospital Daddy and I have had tending and watering duty for Mom’s various green thumb projects.

Dappled Lane, by Beverly Hicks Burch

My parents live on the same little mountain top in Alabama that I do. As a matter of fact we all moved up here several years ago because it reminded us of our roots back in East Tennessee and the Smoky Mountains. You know that old saying “you can take the boy out of the… Continue reading Dappled Lane, by Beverly Hicks Burch
