From my Hubby

Jeff has been helping to work on our landscaping this year. He decided to double the size of our sitting area, by our little pond, so we could fit this table his parents handed down to us a few years ago. We still have to do the finishing touches but I love it. He also installed a new waterfall filter and larger pump in the pond.

I'm so thankful for all our rain. We have moved so many plants around I was afraid they would all die. Here's a few pics of all our gardens. We still need to get the mulch and I didn't get any annuals this year so it looks a little dull.

My largest garden. In the 5 yrs since I started this garden we have dug it up twice due to problems with the septic system. it always comes back bigger and better than before.

Over half of our plants were given to us by my family and Friends of my Mother's who needed to thin down their gardens. In fact I was given so many plants that a friend of mine has a garden close to the size of mine with plants I had no place to put.
Enjoy your day I have to bake cakes for a 3 tier Graduation cake, and some cupcakes, for my son's girlfriend Leigha's High School Graduation party on Sunday. Then the two of them leave for Boston on Tuesday to meet up with a friend of Leigha's that is moving to England with here two daughters. Leigha and Zak are going to stay there for two months to be nannies to the two little girls while the woman gets settled. The woman is hoping to get them to Euro Disney in France and also to Italy before they come home at the end of August just in time to start college. Talk about the chance of a life time. I wish I could have found a summer job like that when I was younger. Thanks for looking I promise its back to stamping now.

hey Michelle- loved seeing your gardens. Mine are well spreading and not well maincured. I am trimming out Feverfew in order that more flowers show as it can overtake the garden with its height. It is amzing how it changes each day. Next comes my Bee Balm and cone Flowers.
I will miss you next Friday.
