Remembering Gladys Taber
Gladys Bagg Taber was born April 12, 1899. . She spent her life writing about every-day simple things, especially her home, Stillmeadow, her cats and dogs. I first heard of her when she wrote a column called Butternut Wisdom in the magazine Family Circle in the 60's. Later I was able to find 6 of her books which I treasure and I'm always on the look-out for more. Gladys Taber died in March of 1980.
Ellabie asked recently about Scillas and if they were invasive. These pictures of my front garden show just how they've taken over. I still like them in spite of their invasive habit and they do basically disappear once they're done.
I don't think I've shown you the lovely bunch of Daffodils I bought on the weekend. They have a lovely scent.
We had a glorious sunshiny day today and I wore my gardening hat and did not get burnt!!
I was looking forward to seeing the full moon this evening but clouds have moved in again and I was disappointed. Now we're in for rainy days; maybe by the weekend this weather system will have moved on and we can enjoy the sun again.
I always appreciate your comments. It's nice to know that you came by.
