Saturday GREETINGS from the greenhouse...

Garden Greetings... my friends!!!
As you can see... my delightful, friend... 'Rosemary'
is ridin' in style here in the greenhouse!
And the 'SunPatiens' are putting on their
HAPPY face!

How does 'YOUR' garden grow???

'Summer Days' are definitely here at the farm...
the gardens are all AGLOW with vibrant colors; the bees
are making their way for daily feedings; butterflies
are fluttering about & I've happened upon
several of my dear friends the... prying mantis.
Oh, & JUST today while adding a few new plants
to one of my favorite gardens
I had a large, toad frog peek through the
creeping thyme 
as if to say... 'this is my home,
glad to meet you', he never moved
while I planted & tidied-up the area.
I hope to see him often as I stroll through!

AND... of course with SUMMER comes the heat...
lately here in Kentucky we have encountered hot & humid days.
The 'Ladies' have found comfort under the
umbrella affect that the tall, flower varieties offer,
such as... Rudbeckia's, Shasta Daisies, Daylilies &
the many grasses that are mingled in the gardens.

SO... what are YOU enjoying from YOUR garden today???
Is it a bloom, a piece of garden art, one of the many
beneficial insects OR just the time of calmness
& peace that is offered when visiting your oasis???

'HAPPY GARDENING' my dear, sweet friends!

Creating... 'FRESHNESS'

In anticipation of a BUSY summer...
I'm setting sail toward a FRESH FLAVOR about the kitchen;

How about 'YOU'... what are some notions 
that 'YOU' have taken to create a 'SUMMERY' fashion???

Hoping 'YOU' sweet-filled days ahead...
