More Treasures..... In My Garden :o)
























My husband & I love our little garden screen house. We enjoy bringing the dogs out with us and just sit watching the birds or listening to our waterfall in our pond . We love having dinner out there & also taking a nap here & there in our spare time . It's so great falling asleep to the sounds of the birds & the water . My "Gypsy Tea House " sign I bought at a tag sale seemed to fit right in with our casual decore . The deer figurines I have been picking up in my travels through the years . The flying cat that hangs from the ceiling was also a tag sale treasure for about 50 cents . My wicker rocker I purchased for $5 & my beautiful quilts were also $3 a piece . It's the only way to shop !

My Garden Fairy

She likes to greet people as they enter the garden.
She's decided that it's been so hot that she'll just sit &
read a book for the day . I think when she gets too hot
she cools off in the old "bird bath" sink . I've never seen
her do this but I think she just waits til all is quiet.........

A Beautiful Place To Visit This Summer !




http://www.shelburnefalls.com/attractions/bridge.html

This is where my husband & I were married on 6/26/05 . It was just the two of us and the
town clerk who also doubled as Justice of the Peace . It was a beautiful day, but very hot though.
As soon as we were married there were a couple of tourists on the bridge so they agreed to take
some of pictures of us . We now have "our spot" on the bridge that we try to visit yearly. We had a great little lunch to celebrate at " The Bottle of Bread Cafe ". Sadly this beautiful little cafe burnt the year after we got married . We visited Shelburne on our first anniversary and were going to try to celebrate there every year but as we were walking towards the bridge we saw that it had been a recent fire because the area was all taped off with that yellow caution tape . So much for that tradition we were going to try and keep ! We still visit though & sit on the bench in
the shade in "our spot ".

Bleeding Hearts

This is the plant that my husband always refers to as the
plant with the little parachutes. I personally don't see them
looking like" parachutes", but to me they are a most delicate
and detailed flower . I think they are very eye catching and
serene looking.Posted by Picasa
