I've been tagged...

Awhile ago, I was tagged by three dear friends, fiirst by Suzan at Old Grey Mare,
 then by Rosie at Roses and Rutabagas.         

 I was to show the tenth photo on the first folder in my computer files.
 So here it is. 
This photo was taken at my daughter's house in February 2008.

This is my grandson Anton  (my daughter Season's first child)
 and his aunt Haylee (another daughter of mine). Anton is 12 years old in this photo.
Haylee is going to kill me for showing this picture of her.
 Notice the drips on the front of her shirt. They came from the sippy cup that
 she is holding in her hand.
 No, it isn't hers, it belongs to her 2 year old daughter Madison.

If you don't hear from me for a awhile, it will be because I am healing up from the
beating I'm going to get after posting this. hehe

The rules say that I am to pass this tag along, but I have seen many of my friends tagged already,
so if you would like to play, feel free to do so.

The third tag came from Elizabeth of My Tattered Rose. The game is Moth's Lucky 7. I am
to reveal my 7th follower. Wow, after scrolling through all of you awesome blogs who have chosen
to click the follower button on my blog, I'm feeling truly humbled. The 7th follower is
Gale Brisa. She does't have a blog, and no picture was posted, but I feel grateful to have her
along for the ride. So Gale, if you are reading this...thank you!

I just have to show you my daffodils that are finally blooming. I have several varieties in the
garden and this is the only one that is in bloom at this time.

This variety is extremely fragrant. So much so, that if I get too many in the house at one time
they give me headache.

I think daffs are the cheeriest blooms. I literally have hundreds in the garden.
I also planted 200 bulbs  in the field at our other place. That was several years ago and
I planted them in and among the aspens. When they bloom it is a lovely sight.
(edited: So funny...I was rereading this post and noticed I had typed in 700 bulbs, instead
of 200 and came back to fix it ,but noticed I had already had a couple of comments. I'll bet they
think I'm a super hero, planting 700 daffodil bulbs. lol Not to mention rich!)

One more photo I would like to share...if you will indulge me...was taken this past Monday.
My daughter and her family were visiting from Utah, and Beau (my SIL) was working on
the car and their little 2 year old Ella (Anton's sister) decided she would help her daddy.
I just had to snap this. I love her little shoes that my daughter found at a thrift store.
They are Stride Rites, just like she wore when she was a baby.

I LOVE, LOVE the photo of Ella and her daddy! With her little arms crossed it looks like she is supervising him, making sure he is doing it right :)

Mary Ellen said...

That is a precious picture of Ella! It reminds me of our boys when they were little - always wanting to help Daddy with fixin the car! My are they the mechanics now- guess it paid off!!

Your daffodils are so lovely! Would you know what variety they are that they are so fragrant?

I spent all day playing- working really in my sun room. It has been full of furniture and junk for my antique booth. I so want to get it looking cute for the summer. I looked outside while I was painting a piece of furniture and thought the pear flower petals were dropping from the tree. Went outside and it was snow falling!! When will Spring figure out she can arrive here in Colorado!!???

bee blessed

Robin Thomas said...

Oh that is so sweet. You know, this will be one of her favorite pictures when she gets older. Those little girls just love their daddys! Big hug, dear one.

oldgreymare said...

Thanks for playing! Terrific family photos..and oh my Miss Ella, that is so sweet.

Glad you are finally getting your blooms. We have had horrendous winds for weeks and all my roses are just petals across the ground now. I'll have to wait for next bloom.

I'm up late again watching the news about New York City, since darling daughter is there ya know. Scary stuff. See you Wednesday?

I agree with you. Daffodils are beautiful - outside! Their smell isn't so pretty, at least to me. God must like it though because He sure made enough of them.

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Hello June, the photo of Haylee and Anton is adorable! And the one of little Ella is just priceless! Your daffodils are so very pretty... and 200 it alot to plant! I'll bet they just look beautiful out there... today is another snowy yucky day here in Utah... it has been icky for almost a week now, I don't know what's going on but I don't like it! Snow is covering all of the mountains above us... wishing you a beautiful Sunday... xoxo Julie Marie

Sandi said...

Oh June that photo is priceless of Ella and her daddy! That looks like something my Annika would do. Lately she has been throwing out her hands and saying, "My daddy says it doesn't matter WHAT I wear...I am still his princess"...hee hee! I love to hear what she comes up with next!!

Beautiful daffodils too. Mine are all done for already!
Happy Sunday!

Barbara said...

What fun! I love all your photos, but that last one would win a contest! I'm sure she thought she was being SUCH a big help. It brought a smile to my face.

Love those beautiful daffies, June. No fragrance to speak of, but really a lovely flower to photograph.

Carolyn said...

Hi June,
That is a lovely picture of your daughter and grandson but the one of little Ella is priceless.
You did a great job photographing your daffodils too-isn't it great to have flowers in the garden again!
Take care,

Rebecca said...

Hi June
That last photo is just so cute, they are so precious...
Most of the daffs along with the tulips are done here and all the blossoms on the trees are down. The lilacs are in full bloom and the smell is heavenly but I just cant get them to stay pretty once cut. It has really been windy here lately. Now we are getting ready for the peonies which are my favorite. Have a wonderful Sunday, the promise of a new day... how good the Lord is!

Privet and Holly said...

I remember my daughter at two years old. She was so spunky, too! Something happens around the 6th grade and from then on, they are a bit more guarded, less willing to throw themselves down under a car with Daddy....Your images are really lovely....what a wonderful way to start my Sunday! xx P&H

Ozma of Odds said...

...ahhhh spring!!! The smell of delightful flowers, the promise of new ~ dreams & hopes ~ what joy!
xo, Rosemary

Connie said...

Just tell her you showed the world a beautiful young woman, sugar, and you can't miss. Of course, she IS beautiful!

Pondside said...

Good morning, June. The photos made me smile!....and what a beautiful smile your daughter has!
The Great Dane plants about 100 daffodil bulbs every fall, so little by little we are seeing the woods bloom every spring. Love it!

Attic Charm said...

Oh I love that precious photo under the car lol, that's a keeper for sure. Pretty daffodils too! Happy Spring Miss June :)

T's Daily Treasures said...

Haylee looks like she could be Anton's big sister. :) Great photos, especially sweet little Ella helping her daddy. I didn't know any daffodils had an aroma. Interesting! Lillies are ones that smell good when you first bring them in, but after a couple of days, egads, it's awful! HOpe you are having a super Sunday sweet June! :) Tammy

Diane said...

Ella looks like she really knows what she's looking at. This pic is a treasure, your family is beautiful. Tell your daughter that she's absolutely gorgeous even with the spots.

The daffs are so pretty. I love the soft pale yellow . Diane

Elizabeth said...

Hello June,

Draffin Bears said...

Hi June,

I loved seeing your photographs, Haylee and Anton are beautiful and you must be so proud of your lovely family.
As for the last photo, that is so darling and made me smile ~ how very cute and I am sure little Ella must be a great Daddy's helper.
Love the daffodils and 200, that is a lot of bulbs.

Londen @ Sixty-Fifth Avenue said...

Adorable picture! and the flowers are beautiful, you have the most inspiring garden!

Ann Marie said...

700 bulbs would have me JEALOUS!
Ha-ha.. 200 is quite amazing!

You probably came to Utah right before the bad weather hit. It's been snowy.. wet and miserable.. and I never thought I'd say I'm sick of white.. but I need some color here! Some warmth! lol!

Hopefully one day.. I will get to meet you on a trip to Utah. :) Your family is darling.. ( sippy and all ) and I know you cherish them.. from the way you write!

LOVE those daffodils....
~ And GRATEFUL for your friendship!

Paula said...

Hi dear June,

Oh, you are so funny! Your grandson is a happy and handsome young man and your daughter is beautiful and happy too! I loved seeing all of your pretty daffodils! 200 bulbs are still a lot of bulbs to plant! I love the photo of your son-in-law and grandbaby. She is so sweet! Love her shoes too! Love, Paula

Lovey said...

Behind every good man is a good woman...well in this case a good girl! the photo! said...

LOVE the daffs as you call them. Every year I swear I'm going to plant bulbs, then time gets away. Then spring comes & I see them popping up everywhere, oh maybe next year. That is just about the cutest picture ever of your GB! How cute is that. She's just hangin' with Dad. Little arms crossed like she's telling him 'I think you need to bleed the brakes Daddy'. Big brother & auntie are pretty cute too. Lisa

sissie said...

Hi June,

Your daffodils are so pretty. The photos are wonderful.
Thanks for sharing today.

What a wonderful post! I love the picture of Ella and her daddy-that is adorable! The pictures of your daffodils are beautiful too:).



Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

Hi June!
Oh, that photo of Ella and Beau is priceless! I'm sure he did a MUCH better job with her supervising. ;-)

Your daffodils are just absolutely sunny and joyful!

Have a great week!

Vicki said...

Hi, June,
Ella is sure giving daddy a hand, isn't she? Such a cute picture. I enjoyed seeing your handsome grandson and pretty daughter. Your daffodils are lovely, and I would not be surprised if you had planted 700 bulbs. I know how much you love to garden. I hope you are having a good week, sweet and kind friend. Love and blessings to you~ Vicki

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

Sweet Junie...

Your daughter and grandson are as cute as can be! Even with the sloppage... :-)

And, the photo of your granddaughter and SIL is one of the cutest darn things I have EVER seen. It's a KODAK moment for sure... It would win any photo contest, I'm sure. I love the way her little arms are folded. Just tooo sweet!

Lovin' your daffs too!


~La Rustique Market~ said...

Love, Love, Love the photo of Ella and Daddy....too precious!!!

Have a great week!

Teacup Mosaics said...

Dearest June,
YOu have captured the daffs in the most beautiful way. I can almost smell their spring scent. I always love visiting please have a wonderful week.

J. Wecker Frisch said...

Hi June - Beautiful photos of the all subjects today. Help me out, I'm still learning. What does "tagged" mean, in blogland?

Holly Loves Art said...

What a fun idea! Cute picture! I just love the "working under the car" photo. So cute!

Rosie said...

Wishing you a "joyfilled" Tuesday...
love, love, love the daffs...they bring on a smile...Rosie

Fete et Fleur said...

OH MY!! Your children are lovely! What a blessing!!


Nice and Easy Antiques said...

Your flowers are gorgeous, but I would rather have the little mechanic!!!

BellaRosa said...

June amor, while I love all the pictures you shared here today...I especially love the one with lil bella Ella and her daddy, because it reminded me of my amor and my own daughter working on the cars with her daddy all weekend, yup my own lil grease munky...I love that she has no fear of getting dirty or climbing into small spaces..I wish I had my camera when she was sitting inside her dads engine compartment :) it was awsome Besos, Rose

ps...I on the other hand cheered them from the porch cause I was afraid I would get dirty :)

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

Hi June, Your daughter is very pretty and your grandson is cute! What a sweet picture of Beau and Ella. It seems like she is quite interested in what Daddy is doing underneath the car.
Your daffodil pictures are beautiful!

The Rustic Victorian said...

How proud Daddy must have been when he saw his little angel next to him. This photo is beyond wonderful.

Deedee said...

Oh my gosh- that picture under the car is too precious for words. The shade of yellow in those daffodils is just too beautiful-you seem to have a knack for finding and photographing the most delicate, sublime colors, June. One of my religious education students recently gave me a little hyacinth plant, and I swear the pale lavender/pink color made me think of you.

A Fanciful Life said...

Hi June - funny post! I would have not noticed the sippy cup spots on Haylee's shirt had it not been pointed out, ha ha! What adorable children and grandchildren you have, just as pretty as your flowers! Will you be planting another 700 next year? wink, wink!
Sharon :-)

Sandy~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

June, you have such a lovely family and of course the bottom picture with your granddaughter hanging out with Daddy is SOOO PRECIOUS.. She may end of being a mechanic when she grows up. haha I absolutely love this picture seeing her arms crossed, just hanging out... you definitely captured a moment that is priceless. If you don't mind I have to copy this and put in my files... to darn cute!

Happy Days to You*
