time working-when I tell you I am out weeding or planting, this is where I am spending

    Who wouldn't want to live in your community, Pat? All your effort says the people who live there care about where they live and who their friends are. And we know that to be true:)
Hope you had a great weekend!

    I so very much enjoyed the walk thru your flower haven. You surely have had and will have your hands full taking care of this. You have done a terrific job!!! The gazing ball that I had pictured and you asked what grout was used by my cousin.............she said it was grouting like you use putting on tiles in bathrooms and such. I just now had my memory jogged on my walk thru.the potted plants that show here on your back ground are they attached??

    Pat, THANK YOU for sharing these pictures with us. I keep reading how you're out weeding and/or planting, and have tried to imagine how things look, but my vivid imagination didn't even come close! You are so talented, and have done a lot of work (I figured out the lot of work part from your discussion thread postings). You've made what could be mundane shine with beauty. How clever you are in creating the glazing ball and teapot yard art items, especially. Thank you, again for sharing pictures of your hard work.
