They All Visit My Tranquil Garden

He arrived during the storm the other night.
He looked weary from travel so we let him
have a swim in our garden pond and after
a short time he thanked us and went on his
way. Maybe he didn't want his wife and kids
to worry . He was a cute visitor measuring
about 7 - 8" long. We called him " Stormy"&
he's always welcome to come back to visit
in our tranquil garden.

What A Nice Surprise !

Look what was delivered to

my door step on a hot

summer day . Have you

ever seen one of these ?

It's an edible fresh fruit

arrangement.

Delicious and refreshing and complete
with gormet chocolate dipped
strawberries ! Yum. I would
definitely recommend this instead
of flowers or a fruit basket.

This size is perfect for all of that

Look for them on my Etsy !

I came across a bunch of

of them together to hang out
on our balcony. I love some
of the decorating ideas he
comes up with, they look
