Monday in Livonia....

At the Town Peddler I coveted the old screen door, but where on earth would I put it without being tossed out of the neighborhood.  They are using old license plates for the art work.  Cool! P.S. I think the screen door was $149.
 Some things from the Dirt Divas booth.  They have such an imagination .
 They make the simplest of things look good just by the display.  Of course I bought something.  Will show it later.
 Then I visited Stella.  I thought you all would like to see how she is doing.  She was sitting on the porch at American House.
Then we had a visitor but she was not going to have anything to do with me.  She only loves her grandma Jackie.

Have a nice Tuesday everyone, August is fading fast!!!

Dog Tired

My friend Floyd sends me emails and this morning I feel tired.  So if you are tired too you will appreciate it.  I have seen it before and probably you have too, but it will bring a smile for this monday morning.

I am going to the Town Peddler craft mall this morning.  I will let you know if I see anything we would like.

You Might Like

It's not easy finding a place for outside flowers in a little house. Knowing it will shatter everywhere is it really worth it?  In the hallway didn't work.
 Although it did look pretty in front of my Happy Day collage.
 Put it on the porch wasn't gonna work.
On a stack of suitcases is where it worked okay.  The flowers are Bonica rose, Anemones and Love Lies Bleeding.

Pretty Pinks

 Zinnia from English Gardens.  It's kinda short but bunchy.
 Little shoes from the thrift store, put some landscape fabric inside, some dirt and small plants. I spray painted them pink.
My Bonica rose, just one stem made a nice bouquet for PJ's breast cancer baskets.
We had a lot of rain and it is raining now again today.  Things will begin to green up now.  So sorry for our Louisiana people. 

Wishing you  gentle rain and just the right amount.

Garden Awards

 This tidal wave petunia from Lowes gets the "best bloom for the buck" award.  I paid 8.98 for ONE plant and griped about it to whoever would listen.
 This one is a goldy honey bear sunflower from Botanical Interest Seeds.  It gets the "little yellow birds favorite" award.
 This is actually two sharing this award.  It's called "We can all get along together."
 This one gets the "new guy in the garden" award.  It's dinosaur kale.  It lives up to its name.
This one gets the "I'll show YOU" award.  I considered pulling it up everyday.  You might say it has bloomed where it was planted, except I didn't plant it.

We had a big rain today  so I am writing to my friends insteadof dragging the garden hose around the backyard.  I hope everyone is having a good summer!!
