A New Memeber of the Family
Making the decision to add a new member to the family is never easy. There are so many things to be considered. I think first and foremost the people involved should be in agreement. Once the new member is there, it is too late to decide it won't really work.

The affect the addition will have on all members of the family must certainly be considered. There will be added responsibilites and the relationship dynamics will almost certainly change.

It is also probably a good idea to be sure the family budget can support a new member. There are so many factors to be considered.

So....with great fear and trepidation we added a new member to our growing family. She is very cute, and I can tell already that she has a sweet disposition. I just hope the rest of the "kids" make her feel welcome. I have never had another one just like her, and I will have to learn how to best take care of her. I have made so many mistakes in the past, but I have finally gotten a good system going. Everyone seems to be thriving.

So welcome little one:

I hope you are happy in your new home.

P.S. Any advice on the care and feeding of Mums will be received with gratitude.

That's a lovely plant to have in your house over the winter months. I don't know alot about these ones but maybe um don't overwater it too much?

She is beautiful...sorry no advice, I kill plants )o: I have a few that hang on no matter what I do to them...the only kind to have. I think I always over water.

Well she is lovely, but don't ever ask me advice for plants... I have black fingers and toes... no green anywhere! lol

she is beautiful...I think once she finished blooming you just trim her down...and next year she will bloom again...but don't take my word for it...you can probably look it up on the internet...
good luck

Hello Linda! I've missed visiting you! It's been very hard to keep up with my blog friends these past several months, but I enjoying catching up with what's been happening in your life this evening.
Happy belated birthday! I'm glad you had a blessed time with your family.
I never have much luck keeping mums alive once they've finished blooming, so I'm sorry to say I can't offer any advise. She sure is pretty though :)
I'm so sorry that your dad has had more health problems, but glad to hear he's home and doing better.
Those Texas hills are gorgeous :) Love your photos!
I had the same feelings about the election - heavy hearted indeed! I have to keep reminding myself that God is still on the throne, but it's hard not worry about our country's future. Prayer is needed for sure....as always!
Enjoy those cooler temperatures. Ours are downright cold and not to my liking! But spring will come again :)

I have never had a mum inside - I just enjoy them outside through the summer and fall and watch them come back the next year! Of course, DC is the one who does whatever is done, so I don't know what that is!

We are enjoying our Christmas cantata, too. I keep singing the one song that says, "Open the blind eyes, Unlock the deaf ears; Come to Your people, as we draw near. Hear us from heaven; touch our generation, We are YOur people crying out in desperation!" It is so true right now!

Beautiful mum. Can you plant it outside later in winter?

At 4:31 PM, Blogger Linds said...

I have planted mine outside. Once the first flowers go, I usually pop them into the garden and they do really well. Don't over water her!

Oh, I love white mums! Thanks for your nice comments on my blog.
