Tall raised beds allow me to garden without kneeling. Love my greenhouse in winter!

Hello Your Garden looks wonderful, with the raised beds. I am lucky that my climate enables me to garden all year round, unlike you.

Can you tell me what breed your dogs are, I am not sure if they are whippets or greyhounds or somethign else.

Good to read your posts on the gardening team page

regards the Hermit

I hope you don't mind I've added you as a sparkfriend. I think we have a lot in common. I also love animals and I'm also a master gardener who can't get enough of playing in the dirt. I have two daughters who've left the nest, but still live close by and come over often.

Wow! A twenty pound loss, that is terrific! Be sure to add to you success a 20lb loss icon.

I read your blog and I must say I am proud of you! It is not always easy to make decisions like breaking loss from toxic friendships.

Please come visit my sparkpage if you like or when you need someone to lend support. I am only a click away.
