Remembering Olivia Rose

My darling little 14 month old girl that I lost four years ago today. She was so young, and had only begun to live. It's so unfair that her life was so short. I was truly blessed to have her in my life, even if it was only for a short nine months. She was the sweetest little being.

Fly with those angel wings of yours and have a ball, sweet Livia. Until we are together once again....

Plant Identification?

We have two mystery plants growing in our yard this year that we've never had before. The first one is growing in the dirt by the gutter and by the cinder blocks about 8 feet way, but no place else in the yard at all. There are clusters of berries that start out green and turn a deep purple. Any idea what it is? Is it or the berries poisonous? Raeka likes to eat the grass around this plant, so if it's not safe, I'm going to yank it up!

The second one is growing all around the shed. Never did before this year. It's really pretty actually, and sort of delicately bushy.

I have no idea why all of a sudden we have these two new additions to the yard. Maybe all the rain we had early in the summer that lasted a month!
