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.

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!



  1. How nice to have your flowerbed all tidied up with mulch and planted. It looks great. The little fairy will love it.
    She may need a blanket tonight. It cold here tonight after all the heat we've had lately.

    Have a great week.

  2. It's looking good! They're going to have a lot of room to run and play!!!
