Ya'll want me to hedge some stocks on Wall Street for your future stability? How about picking the winning pony at Churchill Downs or if oat munchin' equestrians aren't your thing how about a winning champion Greyhound at the Island Hotel Casino Racetrack? Doggone~it, I could be persuaded to make a wager at the Roulette tables in Vegas or close my big browns and toss some numbers for the Lottery your way. Attention: The Superbowl is comin' up folks so... call me don't be afraid to just call me! Sorry, it doesn't take much to make me break out in song. Heck, I'll even name your firstborn!!! Hi, my name is Nezzy and I do not have a gambling addiction but I sure have been one charmed farm chick lately.
Ahhh roses, this Ozarks gal just adores them. The rose is a perennial flower named from the French word Rosa. There are over one hundred species and are noted for their astounding beauty and fragrant aroma. I know, I have thirty eight of the bloomin' beauties with their sharp prickles and oval shaped leaflets adorning the gardens of the Ponderosa. They produce an edible fruit late in the growin' season called rose hips. These are used to create essential oils, rose water for Asian cuisine and French rose syrup used to make scones and marshmallows. These hips can also be used to make jams, jellies and tea. They are also an excellent source of vitamin C. I've photographed many roses but never ever did I capture anything like the incredible sugar laced rose Gail photographed one frosty Arkansas morning. That is frost around the peddle edges and Gail snapped it reproducing it on the exquisite note cards I won at her giveaway along with The Way for Cowboys New Testament Bible filled with amazing cowboy pictures and fascinating commentary.
Gail, At The Farm
is a farmers daughter who returned to life on the family farm. She's an outdoor farm chick who loves horses and critters of all shapes and sizes. She has a wonderfully unique since of humor and as I have found out lately, she can be quite the little trickster. The girl knows how to get even! Gail has an eye for finding beauty in the unusual and capturing her treasure in captivating photos. Ya'll can view fabulous fungi, the rugged edges in dry cracked earth, shimmering ice clinging for dear life onto twigs. You can meet her clan of chickens, cats, dogs and horses who live together as the best of buds. Gail has a heart of gold. She plays Mom to foster dogs until she can place them in a good homes. She also has a full time job where she might have some incite on goin' postal. If you haven't visited Gail and her very interesting blog I strongly suggest you do so...NOW!!! I promise she will not disappoint.
So while I sit chillin' in the cold icy tundra on the Pondersoa, I'm open to helpin' ya'll out. Meanwhile, I may go find another giveaway 'cause this lucky Ozarks chick might be singing as Britney Spears sang in her 2000 hit song, "Oops,I Did It Again!"
LOL you are one blessed lady~!!!!ReplyDelete
Hi. I just saw your comment on Gail's At The Farm site about Blogging for Dummies.ReplyDelete
I just put a notice up on my blog sidebar about the book and one of it's co-authors, Shane Birley. You may be interested in having a look at it.
You Lucky Ducky!!! Honestly girl, I have always dreamed of going to the Kentucky Derby and maybe you need to come along! Have fun with all your winnings! Cindy
Maybe you should go to Vegas or something. That is lovely and the Cowboy Bible looks right up your alley as well! Hope you're doing fabulously well!ReplyDelete
Lucky Dog, umm, Nezzy!!!! I am not a gambler at all but have no problem with folks who do ... unless you're using my money ... LOL.ReplyDelete
My Ponderosa needs some snow, would you ship me about 4 feet worth? It is also above 40 degrees when it should be around 28-32. This is a really, really weird winter!
I love pictures of anything that has just a touch of frost. Wish I could find the one I took of the antenna on my rig - it was fine and fancy.
You are too funny...and lucky!!!ReplyDelete
I enjoy your blog so much. Keep winning and let your good luck spread throughout the blog followers!ReplyDelete
If you're so lucky, how come we have sub zero weather and snow? Just asking...ReplyDelete
You have definitely had a run of luck lately. Gorgeous picture!
I tell ya--you have had THE luck lately.ReplyDelete
The rose cards are really beautiful.
Stay warm! I'll be making those cookies soon. :)
Congratulations. Hope you are staying warm. It is bitter cold, here.ReplyDelete
Very generous description of Gail, but then you are of a generous nature.ReplyDelete
I wish you lots of Luck at 'give aways', casino, Wall Street - whatever you choose to turn to for winning.
If I give you $10 will you take it to the Casino and bring me back $1000? You can keep anything over that amount. *smile
You are living right Nezzy! Congratulations on another giveaway win!ReplyDelete
Gail sounds like a terrific blogger and I will check her out next. In the meantime if you happen to think some good lottery numbers for me to play I'd really appreciate it.
Couldn't have happened to a nicer gal. You are getting a nice cache of wins...keep it up and let the good times roll. All the best to you.ReplyDelete
Absolutely, keep your streak going. I love hearing about the flowers. How fortunate that you won it! What a wonderful picture.ReplyDelete
You're just hitting the jackpot! Love the cowboy bible!ReplyDelete
Rich blessings to you!
Ohhhhh, I'm envying your roses! I have a hard time with roses since our winters are so long and cold. It makes me cherish every blossom that blooms in the summer!ReplyDelete
Hey - congrats! We're shiverrin' here in Northern Il with 6 more inches of snow. Hope you're not gettin' it. Luck is partly state of mind. The ol law of attraction. You go girl.ReplyDelete
Wow - good for you! Now will you do a little "good luck" dance for those MN Vikings and Brett Favre? --ReplyDelete
Wow, I can't get over your winning streak!! Go you!!ReplyDelete
I love the way you describe roses...they sound gorgeous!
BTW, thank you for always leaving encouraging messages in your comments. You always put a smile on my face right about the time I'm desperate for it, like when the kids can't stop slapping each other or when someone yells "Mommy, I accidentally spilled grape juice on the sofa".
And if you do hit the "big one" can you remember all of us in blogland?ReplyDelete
You won again - congratulations! The year is off to a good start.ReplyDelete
You are indeed a lucky woman! Congrats and you may get a call from a certain yodeling goatherder about which lottery numbers to pick. *Winks*ReplyDelete

Hi, This is my first visit here and I love that you are having fun and sharing with us here.ReplyDelete
Hi There my Dear Nezzy,ReplyDelete
I am a grower of roses as well...on Cape Cod we grow a pink rose called New Dawn that covers anything with an abundance of pink, pink, pink. Hubby built a pergola for me several years ago and the entire thing is covered each summer.
It appears that you are freezin' in the Ozarks just like we are freezin' here in Florida this week. What a hoot! I'm sitting here with my long underwear on, my wooly blanket covering my legs, the heat turned up to 70 and I'm still shivering. This isn't what we traveled 2000 miles for!!! Ah...but my little pink Florida rose bush on the back patio is blooming just as though the sun were shining on it in all its glory. Go figure.
Keep those home fires burning, okay?
Hi Nezzy..Congrats on that..!!.I love everything roses..both my girls middle names are rose..BTW..I lost my blog..therfore I started a new one..but lost all of my linkys..oh well..!! I guess Im not so lucky...LOL..!!ReplyDelete
I love the way you think.
Congrats on all the good luck as of late ,maybe if I come by and rub the top of your head on your profile photo some will rub off on me :)
That propbably only works in the non virtual world oh well it was just a thought.
You know what I love roses too !
I also tend to speak in song lyrics at home :)
I have tried really hard not to go there on my blog but can I help it if a few slip in from time to time ?
I have a sweet younger cousin who lives in Conway and it seems y'all really have had a winter up there in the Ozarks .
Old man Winter has also paid a little visit to us here in Central Texas .It was 10 degrees this morning.
I can usually wear shorts and flip flops year round .Not today I'm wearing thermals with fuzzy pink slippers on my feet .
Blessings to you my sweet blogging friend.
Take care .
You could sell your luck to others by picking their lottery numbers for a fee! Bon chance!ReplyDelete
Oh, congratulations, Nezzy!!! And what a gorgeous prize!!! No wonder you are so delighted!!! And you always are so kind and generous and write up such beautiful thank you posts...they are simply a delight to read!! You truly have a way with words!!! Have a wonderful Sunday!!! ~Janine XOReplyDelete
Stay warm love. You are a rose to me! xoxoReplyDelete
We are going to Vegas in a few weeks and maybe you should come as our good luck charm:) I am not a big gambler and play the slots and you would think I won a million dollar when I get 3 cherries on the slots and win a few quarters. I talk to the machine and usually pray to God a whole lot when I am out in sin city asking him to let me win just one more quarter:) I think our winnings lately are a good streak and go out and buy a lottery ticket for sure. Stay warm out there as it is still freezing here in the south. I need a major hot flash to stay warm:)ReplyDelete
Oh, maybe you should buy some lottery tickets! :)ReplyDelete
