Love it Kathleen - that huge urn is the same one I just got on clearance and can't wait to figure out what to do with it. Love the black ones too. I can't wait to see what you do with the large urn and the fairy garden...what a wonderful neighbor.

Please email me and let me know what the not so good thing was - I'm worried about you. And I'm dying to know what you decided on the carpet!


You've never had gardening shears before? I'm surprised. What tool do you use for pruning instead? Fairy gardens look like fun--I might have to try that, too. The Japanese Maple looks small enough to fit in the fairy garden. Very pretty!


I've missed so many great posts here. I finally had a chance to go back and catch up. Your pictures are just so nice, you really capture a peaceful feel in your garden.
The urns will look pretty in snow, but lets hope that will be awhile.
Hope everything is okay, I'll send you some good thoughts :)


Beautiful photo of the yellow flower bud (the Latin name is so long)

And congratulations on the nice gifts. Gifts are good!


I adore the new urn Kathleen. Gotta love those sales. LOL! A Fairy garden is so fun to make and you will have a great start with those items from the neighbor. The Fuchsia's are so pretty. The little rabbit is so cute. Have a great week.

Little Japanese maples like that usually get eaten by the bunnies, you have done well!! I love that Fuchsia....what great photos too. Sorry to hear life isn't all roses for you now. Hope it improves. Nice of the music teacher sharing the book and shears.


Kathleen I hope you are doing OK, and glad your garden is about to bring you joy. Love the fuschia, so beautiful.


sorry, I meant to say able!


So glad you have some good to take away the bad. Nice unexpected gifts are always a treat so what a thoughtful music instructor! The 'Red Dragon' almost out competes the fuschias!


Nice is good, Kathleen ... as were your gifts and this lovely post. Happy Autumn :)


Love all three of those urns Kathleen! Can't wait to see what you do with the one, your container plantings are always spectacular. What a nice little Fairy Garden your neighbor passed along to you. Hope the not so good things get better. Take care.

You are a Great bargain hunter - and you always come up with wonderful items. Love that little mini-acer! :-)
