I wanted to share a couple of snaps with you
of the new plantings I put in over the weekend ~
I stepped out onto the front porch and immediately felt like I was being watched!
(more than the usual donkey, sheep, chicken, peacock & kitten brigade watching my every move)
so I kind of just stood there for a moment to try to figure out 'who' it was….
I walked closer and closer to him (her?)
and he didn't quiver a bit….
I love them ~
especially when they're still young like this one…
can you see the young tomato plant right next to him?
yup….he was making a snack of the tender leaves.
so I gently shooed-him away
and off he hopped into the woods ~
I thanked him for his visit and for the photo-op,
then kindly asked him not to eat my plants!
|love his fur|
So this is where I planted ~
...inside our farmhouse-fence:
|hard to see, but there is a yellow rose bush, verbena, sandwort, mum, jasmine vine & daisy|
on the corner is a little plot where my beloved Black Suzy (cat) is interred ~
the urn is there for her, the little weeping angel statue was a gift in memory of Buddy…
|along the fence is that little tomato, basil, petunias, a fig tree & lilac bush|
in Suzy's urn is sweet annie that grows wild here at the farm now, since I planted SO much of it ~
it pops up literally anywhere it wants to!
(but I love volunteers)
...and along the front porch:
(please excuse that chipping paint)
|spent daffodils, nandina bush, hosta, and a potted red geranium now resides in one of my cauldrons ~|
the plant stand it's on was a gift from my sister Louisea ~
here is the little rock garden up by the donkeys ~
|this is where I planted english lavender, coreopsis, shasta daisy, oregano, pineapple sage, asiatic lily, nandina,|
azalea, snow drift, and daffodils ~
Joan, Patty & Kate came in for a while to hook on their WIP's
I love when we can get-together, even if it was just a small clutch of us this time :)
Kate is new to the area ~ but not new to hooking!
she is a real sweetie & I LOVE her laugh!!!
hope she comes back and that I didn't scare her off with my antics!
(fingers crossed here)
|Kate's busy hands were a blur!!!|
I took a snap of Patty's crow rug that she's working on ~
BUT ~ it came out so blurry I couldn't share it here.
Hoping Patty wil bring it next time so I can get a better snap of it for you!
I'll be processing orders/shipping today ~
