So Thank you Tina for the award maybe someone in my family can help me post it. It was the BFF gold card,blogging friend forever, award. if and when that happens then I will try my best to figure out how to pass it on. TTFN

My linky goodness

Well, it finally happened, with the help of my brilliant daughter ( actually I couldn't have done it without her) I now have a list of the lovely places I like to visit. I hope you like them too. For my next trick, I will learn how to open and close my digital camera. :) It is now sitting with it's lid popped open and I can't close it. How can one person be so inept with technology??? After that I will move on to getting the little picture card thingie out and trying to get the pictures on the computer. Then if I can figure out what the computer did with my picture files maybe I can post some new pictures. That has been the main reason for my big delay in posting. Right now I have a headache and need a lie down...maybe a a glass of wine... and chocolate... TTFN

goodby garden

This didn't turn out like I wanted it to. I listed the tulip picture twice. But I don't know how to delete it without deleting everything. So please enjoy it twice.
My plan was to show my garden from spring to late summer, but you know about plans"the best laid plans of mice and men" I am not sure where that quote is from but I think it means that plans don't always succeed. Any way these are the first violets of spring and of course the tulips.

The tulips again. they are at the arch that leads to the veggie garden.

This is the Gram Thomas rose it is so beautiful but it doesn't hold up as well as some others in bouquets. But it makes up for it by blooming all summer into fall, in fact it is still blooming.

These are my foxgloves, they grow wild here, I just gathered some seed from one along side the road several years ago and they seed themselves in every year, you never know where they will pop up, these chose a great place by the bird house.

This is an area at the south end of my garden it looks so good in the spring, but in summer it looses some of it's beauty.

I don't know the name of this rose but it is so full of petals it makes the stems droop. It has such a deep pink color it is beautiful in bouquets.

This is a close up of one of my blue berry plants, it produced for over a month. They were very tasty. I am going to move it and its companion, which didn't produce quite as well to the south end of the garden. Well that is a quick tour of my garden thru the spring and summer. It doesn't include the veggie garden which wasn't as good as past years. Too all of you south of the equator enjoy spring and all it promises for the year to come,we are going into fall and it seems like it is coming quickly. TTFN

My first give away

This is a picture tour of my first give away. It was for my first blog visitor Tina, at Garden goose. I had such a fun time making and gathering and putting it all together. And I know she enjoyed it because she showed it on her blog at garden goose. I would love to do another giveaway, but I will have to have a reason... maybe a name the playhouse give away. A nice giveaway for the best name.

Included in the give away box are just some of the fun crafts I love to do. Quilting, silk ribbon embroidery, beading, lampwork bead making, and much more. Enjoy the tour and think of names for the playhouse. TTFN
