“Northern Italy provides a spectacular backdrop for Roscato, a violet-hued red with aromatic notes of cherry, blackberry and red raspberry. A touch of sweetness and bright acidity underlies the appeal of this charming wine. The traditional winemaking style for this fruit-forward red complements regional “heart and soul” cuisine such as bruschetta, calamari, pasta in red and cream sauces, breaded cutlets and spicier fare. Enjoy chilled.

Around 8:30 this morning, I saw a coyote walking on the road just beyond the pecan tree.  I often hear the coyotes late at night, and sometimes I see them other places throughout the neighborhood.  A reminder to always watch my dog when she is out in the back yard.

We recently purchased this Bad Boy zero turn mower to make faster work of lawn care since moving to our one-acre property.

There are other places on my house, other than the front porch, that would be a perfect location for the barn swallows to build a nest.


Glistening cobalt blue above and tawny below, Barn Swallows dart gracefully over fields, barnyards, and open water in search of flying insect prey. Look for the long, deeply forked tail that streams out behind this agile flyer and sets it apart from all other North American swallows. Barn Swallows often cruise low, flying just a few inches above the ground or water. True to their name, they build their cup-shaped mud nests almost exclusively on human-made structures.

Spotted this large bowl at an area thrift/vintage store, and decided to bring it home with me.  A great find for $4.50!

So happy that most all my plants and trees survived their first year, and are beginning to bloom this spring!  I purchased a few more plants at the garden center to add to the landscape.

It was like a summer day with temperature in the mid eighties here in northeast Oklahoma, on this last day of winter.  Enjoyed the sunset from the balcony.
