Well it finally came…the long anticipated garden walk…it was a beautiful day.  I accomplished all my projects I wanted to get done the days before: re-painting signs, making the garbage can lid bird bath, taking out all the tall daisies that the Wednesday night storm layed down and all the final deadheading and weeding.  There are about 50 pictures here for you to enjoy.  We had 570 guests come through the garden on Saturday.  That makes me feel good about sharing our house and garden for the benefit of those who have fallen on rough times.  The Emergency Shelter also helps families get a new start on life along with the life skills to attain permanent housing of their own.  CLICK ON THE PHOTS TO MAKE THEM LARGER IF YOU DESIRE.

    Lisa your gardens are beautiful and I love all of the unique fun extra’s you have all around. . You not only have an eye for fabric and creating – you have a creative green thumb as well. What a great place to sit back, relax with a happy snappy and do a little stitching. Question, how do you do it all, lol. Thanks for taking us along on the tour :).

    Hugs- Karen

    Thank you for sharing another of your many talents….Gardening is my 2nd love next to quilting but where you find the time to keep your many gardens up with all the time you spend creating and traveling to shows…I know that I have to get up a 5AM just to get what I have watered and cared for before going to work leaving sewing for the wee hours in the middle of the night. I guess the old saying that we all have 24 hour days it just depends on how we spend them….but I am begging for a few more hours to accomplish all I would love to do. Have a good trip to Long Beach….I hate having to miss this show this year.
