How My Garden Grows!


Look at these absolutely gorgeous peonies! I am so proud! This season, for the first time in nigh onto 7 years, I have been enjoying the garden. For whatever reason, ( and believe me, I am NOT complaining) the pernicious allergy I have had to something in my back yard seems to have abated, allowing me to cautiously venture out into the garden. My sorely-neglected, but much-beloved peonies have been pruned and watered regularly, and I was able to plant a stand of stargazer, Pandora and Casa-Blanca lilies, (which I hope will be lovely!) and create several window boxes and large planters of Draecena, pansies and lobelia. I do hope everything will flourish as I have sorely missed the opportunity over the past several season to drink in the splendours of the out of doors. I will post pictures of the other plants as I get them. My, isn't nature wonderful!

I noticed you left me a beautiful message on my other blog "anything that strikes my fancy" oh thank you for such sweet and kind words I tell everyone if only my body would catch up with my brain... ("laughing") Etsy is a place that you can buy handmade items from other people. If you go to my "for the love of a teddy bear" blog....on the left side scroll down, you will see pictures in boxes and right under you will see ETSY and needfulpink, that is my store. Click on any picture and it will take you to it. from there you can look at all kinds of things made by all kinds of other people. They even sell vintage things.... I hope that helped you a bit. Take care my friend! have a beautiful day! Hugs, Jennifer
