My goodness, it's been a LONG time & hot
Here's one picture of our fireworks
We had BIG ones!!
I even took a picture of one of the baby toadies, I have sooo many. I found them when
they were really tiny!! Had to let them grow so I wouldn't hurt them when touching them.
We have a had big time raccoon problems, they are knocking down all the feeding
poles & tearing up my feeders. Not sure what to do, except bring all the food in
at night. UGH!!
It's been so HOT & dry here, not my kind of weather.
I recently started listing some things on etsy
hope you'll check them out AND bookmark my
More coming, we got NEW plants for the shade garden

BUSY week

Wow, this week went fast. Last weekend hubby and I headed off to the Nursery (Garden, we don't need no babes) to replace a bush.
We got a neat one ..and a Japanese Elm for the back
this fun fountain. I know he wanted a great BIG one, but I said lets wait till we sell the old house!!
I love the sound of water when I'm on the deck.
I read that birds can hear a drip for TWO miles.
Here's a picture of an Indigo Bunting visiting the feeder. I love them!!
We had HUGE fireworks on the Fourth. I'll post one picture of that soon.
Check out
It'll be updated on July 15th ,lots of great primitives offered there!!

It's July

The Hollyhocks are almost done blooming. That means SEEDS for next year.
If you'd like some seeds, I'd love to share.
I moved this old plow, which was brand new when I got it at an auction, into the side garden. I was tired of the raccoons using it to climb up to the bird feeders. Darn FAT critters, they tear the feeders up to get to the seed. I can't figure out why they don't just go fish at the pond's full of yummy fishies for them to eat.
I spotted a TEENY little toadie this weekend too, about the size of my little finger's nail. I am going to try to get a picture of him tomorrow. He's just an itty bitty.
Hubby went to Indianapolis for the Formula One Race and brought home LOTS of fireworks.
Our youngest daughter has invited her friends for the 4th and told them to bring their fire extinguishers..Oh My , with all the woods we made need them.
Hope you all have a celebration & remember our soldiers who are fighting for our FREEDOM
God Bless America
Land that I love
