I use cloves and brown sugar, when it's the last half hour add the pinapple . I am going to dye my eggs tomorrow.
Looks sloppy, to many pinapple rings.
The Queens Two Milliners are Freddy Fox and Philip Somerville. I think they do a fabulous job on her Hats . Wonder what her Easter Bonnet will look like this Easter.
World breaking Records, I know a kid that could eat that whole thing.

Japanese Beetle, a destructive insect that attacks the foliage, blossoms, roots, and fruit of plants. It was introduced into New Jersey about 1916, later spreading over many states east of the Mississippi. It is a serious pest in the United States, but is no problem in its native Japan because natural enemies keep its numbers in check
Japanese beetles (Popillia japonica) are a devastating invasive pest in urban landscapes. Japanese beetles have no natural enemies in the United States and are able to reproduce rapidly in home landscapes. They readily feed on a wide variety of landscape plants and in large numbers can easily defoliate mature cherry trees.
How can I protect my cherry tree from Japanese beetles......
Iam waiting for any Ideas.

***************************** April Fools Day iscelebrated around the world. Also known as all fools day. In 1698 Tickets were given for the washing of the lions in the London Tower. Here's another fun one- Burger King ran an ad for left handed Burgers, while Taco bell ran an ad that they purchased the Liberty bell to save the natl. debt. In some countries the jokes last till noon. The earlist April fool was recorded as far back as 1392 in Tales of Canterbury.
Have a very happy April Fools day. Love to all my wonderful bloggers...

Yvonne started painting and drawing in High School in Houston Texas. She earned extra money drawing insects in science class for classmates. Yvonne's mother encouraged her to attend art classes at the Art Museum in Houston in the 1960's. After her marriage she moved to Miami Beach, while living on Palm Island she continued her education in art, and Design. Also studied with notable artist from the area. Yvonne was painted by friend Florence Taylor Kushner, from Boston and in women's Who's Who. Florence painted many famous families. Yvonne was lucky enough to receive private tutoring from her. In the 1970's she went to Interior Design School . Years later she started her own Interior Design firm named 'Chez Moi Interior's. Yvonne continued painting and showing her work at Beau Arts in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Also she exhibited her work in North Carolina, the Florida Keys, and at the Childers Art Gallery on Las Olas Blvd (Ft. Lauderdale). Yvonne won the prestigious 'Hortt Art Competition Award' at the Museum of Ft.Lauderdale, Florida. This work of art remained on display for several months at the Museum. Over the years Yvonne has entered many competitions winning countless blue ribbons. A trip to Paris, and a stay in Monmarte where she spent time with a few choice artist's changed her views toward her own art work. Art is truly an expression of experience and love to her. She likes her work to show a moment in time or tell a story. To know more about Yvonne Leyden
