About Me

My photo
I'm a wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother. I try to be creative - sometimes it works, most times it doesn't. I'm my own worst critic! I'm self taught in a lot of my crafts, but have taken quilting classes and most recently a beginner's rug hooking class. I enjoy both crafts tremendously. I'd like to learn to be a better gardener.

What a difference a day makes!

It was so nice when I left for work this morning.  I looked longingly at the chair on the front porch and wished I had time to sit and have my coffee out there.  Soon....  :)

My hubby informed me that we have hummingbirds!  Yay!  They were at the feeder in the back yard.  I was hoping they would be attracted to a feeder in the front yard but it might be too hot there as it gets full sun all the time.  So last night I removed it, cleaned it and will probably put it up in the backyard as well.  One can never have too many hummingbirds!  :)

I've decided to take Friday off so I can work in my garden, help my daughter with the graduation party list and just enjoy the weather!

Sorry there are no pictures - for some reason my computer is very slow in uploading pictures so I have to do it when I know I have lots of time to "play" with it.  I have more pictures of my fairy garden and pictures of my granddaughter before prom and I'll have pictures of my front garden this weekend.  Then it will be back around to the back to finish back there.  Never a dull moment in my life but not as exciting well maybe eventful as Julia's of Petals and Wool!  That woman is always on the go and has such interesting stories! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Gardening and this is just the beginning!

Below are some pictures I took of the garden under my tree - that is going to become my fairy garden.  The fifth picture down shows the front of the tree after.  For some reason I'm having  a hard time labeling my pictures tonight.  So, I think I'll stop for now and post more stuff another day.

We still have the gardens up against the house to work on, the side garden, and I still need to clean up my hydrangea.  Then it's on to the front yard.  But in looking at the weeds growing up as I drove into my driveway it just might be the front garden next!

This is the front of the tree before.

This is the west side of the tree - before.

This is the back of the tree before.

This is the east side of the tree after.


This is the back side of the tree looking south.

This is the west side of the tree - see my little garden fairy?


Another view of the west side of the tree after.

 Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you had a great Mother's Day!
