Bill's brother is doing better and is suppose to go home tomorrow.
Today has been one of my better days. I even got a load of clothes done so Bill wouldn't have to do it. Waiting for DWTS and Castle.
I am liking my statue garden more everyday
heres my little girl



She is so funny. I just felt a cold wet nose pushing my foot.She was trying to get at a piece of popcorn I dropped.She is laying right next to me hoping for another piece. emoticon

  Hi Eleni........
It is good to hear that you are having a good day and that Bill's brother is doing better. I love the pictures of Roxy.......don't you wonder what you ever did without her? They certainly do become real members of the family.
The dancing was great last night, except for Kirstie who needs to GO!!!
Tonight will be all about the election, so I am taking Ken out for supper and to a movie.
Take care.........

  Hi Eleni.........
Knowing you, you will have an arrangement in the Butterfly garden that you will get as much, if not more, enjoyment from. Also, you had mentioned keeping the Hummingbird garden and butterflys will appear there too.
I hope that Bill's brother is doing well.
Your first picture and comment are certainly the truth...........If only it were as easy to get skinny as it is to get fat!!!
Have a great week.

Your pictures are always great. You will still be busy taking pictures of the birds and I think you will have butterfly visitors in your Hummingbird garden to photograph too.
Take care.

Butterfly Garden is Gone Sad Day

Saturday, November 03, 2012

It was very sad to do away with it but just too much work when you have no help. I still have hummingbird garden and did keep purple plants and put there. I like the statue garden. I hated looking out window at dead plants. We will keep one flowering plant in plant holder. Changing it out when it stops blooming
Here is before picture and then some now pictures



I have more pics but nothing will upload so I will try again later.

    My hubby tends our flowers but they are not in a garden format like you had. That is beautiful Eleni. I like the way Bill changed it to just statues. We used to get spinning things and put in the front yard that mama looked at all the time and she loved that. I did find some that were several different bright colors. You do good loading pictures---I have to get help to do that. ((HUGS))

    So Sorry you had to get rid of your butterfly garden Eleni ..But I do understand that they take a lot of looking after ..
When we moved from our last house we decided not to have little gardens as it was to much work .. so we now have roses all around our fences .. still work but as they are standards there is no bending down to prune them ...
I love all your statues they are lovely .. Have a lovely evening my friend always in my thoughts Susie emoticon

  Hi Eleni........
I know exactly what you mean about gardens being so much work. When we moved here 16 years ago, we brought mature plants with us from our existing gardens to start our new gardens. I remember saying to Ken that we should cut down on the number of gardens. He just kept rototilling and turning over little areas here and there until the total number of gardens reached 15. I was still teaching but did have weekends and quite a bit of the summer to keep up. Then in 2008, I had complete knee replacement and getting down on my knees to garden ended. It is very difficult for me to keep up now. I have suggested closing some of our areas and consolidating plants. If he doesn't agree to this, I will hire our little Amish neighbors to come over to help me. I love gardening so much, but have to face my limitations.
I am sure that you will make your area beautiful even without a lot of plants.

My day started off with white dog in back yard. I didn't know it and opened door for Roxy and and she was in big hurry. When she flew out door there was dog.This is 3rd time the white dog has been in yard. I knew she was friendly but I still wasn't brave enough to go outside. Roxy came in when I called her which surprised me. I knew Bill would be home and she would be ok. But then I saw her go around house to where gate was and got worried about her. I got brave enough to go out with a lease and she was gone.Then I was worried about her.She is a pit and if she had got picked up a shelter would have put her down. But it turned out good. Bill checked over fence first and she was back in her yard. I called the number I had and the girl no longer lived there.In fact she was in NJ. But she said she would call someone. I think when she got out the front she just went home. Very happy she got home.
I have been thinking about getting rid of butterfly garden.It is so much work for Bill and he already has so much to do. I will turn it into a statue garden with just one plant.
Here are the flowers Bill brought me home.He knows I like bright colors

    Glad dog problem was worked out. We have similar problems with dogs off leash. One large dog came up on our driveway when I was taking our small one out for a walk. Large dog bit my miniature schnauzer. Vet bills and the whole enchilada. Have a good day.

  Hi Eleni........
I love your flowers. Bill is such a great guy!!!!!!! But then, you know that already.

Our dog adventure was with our Cairn Terrier, Miki, and happened yesterday. I let him out the front door and had just gone back in the house, when I heard him barking like crazy!!! I opened the door and a deer ran down the driveway with Miki right behind her. I hollered as loud as I could and luckily, Miki stopped and turned around. I think that he realized he had more than he could handle and was glad for the excuse to turn back. He is a small dog but doesn't realize it!!!

Have a good weekend.

    Beautiful flowers Eleni. I love bright colors too. Really glad that Roxie is ok. Toby is ok when our children's dogs when they come visit and used to be ok with other animals but the older he gets the less tolerant he is of "visitors." I think he is just getting "cranky" in his old age. lol (((HUGS)))
