Baking and shopping............


My granddaughter 2 states away is moving again to one state away but only 30 minutes closer to us, still hours away.  I baked 2 batches of cookies and mixed dough for a third batch to send with family that will help them.  I hope the little ones will like the pretty color sugar I dipped the shortbread cookies in.


I also made a shopping trip to W*lm*rt to pick up some things my local grocery store doesn't carry.  Now I'm set for a month.

Here are 4 of the Coral Bell plants in pots waiting for a flower bed to be planted in.  I have one more variety that didn't make it into this photo.  It has large purple and green leaves.


One of the Hostas I dug up broke into about 8 pieces.  I put the 2 largest pieces into pots and they are very happy.  This Hosta is only about 10-12" tall but it spreads out to cover a large area.



I usually buy one new Hosta every year and this is the 2021 plant.  The leaves are both yellow and white with green.  I think I'm going to transplant it into a larger pot today because I'm betting it is really pot bound right now.

The cookies will be appreciated! They look yummy! It is so nice your granddaughter will be closer. Your plants are looking great! I only have two varieties of cora bells. I traded for the larger purple and green plants and the other one I have was given to me by a neighbor over twenty years ago. I brought them from my other house when I moved north. They are all doing well since I put up the deer fence.

Some plants I put in pots because they were so tiny have surprised me and grew ginormous. I will have to put them in the ground. Trying to find sometime to shoehorn the time in. It would be hard to make those cookies and not eat them. The plants look real healthy.

your plants are all looking good and I bet the cookies will be loved - who can pass up cookies after all

Your hostas are so pretty. Since you have them in pots do you bring them inside for the winter? Your cookies look so yummy. Hope you can see the granddaughter a little more often now.

We love shortbread - adding the colored sugars makes them even more festive!

Cookies and plants sure look good. Frosted shortbreads are my grandsons favorite also.

That new hosta is really pretty! I have three kinds, and really like seeing the variety in the yard.
