A few years ago a pair of robins made a nest in the Cecile Brunner rose that grows just outside my back window. Each morning I would sit at my kitchen table, drinking a cup of tea, waiting for the arrival of the hatchlings.Read More
I Just thought I'd share a few beautiful gifts from my life.
The photo above is from my 90 year-old mom's backyard. Yes, she still works in it everyday with her "outdoor" walker.
Remember how I mentioned the critters that like to help themselves to my garden? Well, one of them decided to make a nest in the drawer of my potting bench. Mouse?
And lastly, but certainly not least, I'd like to share the beautiful work of my Friendship Group. We are all stitching the Flowers From My Garden designs together. They are such a wonderfully talented group. Don't you agree?
Have a wonderful day!
