In the garden...

Spent alot of time in the garden this weekend....extremely hot and humid and lot's of labor intensive work paid off with a little surprise....
I so wanted this years vegetable garden to be more aesethically pleasing. So....
my darling husband created these paths for me (I helped too but it was really his design!). I was tickled pink with his idea! After spending all day in the dirt we went in for showers, dinner and then came back out after dusk to relax and view the garden...what a treat to see the pavers illuminated by the moonlight!
I loved it!...of course I ran and got my camera...
I had to use a flash to get a decent photo but I'll tell you, with just some candlelight and moonlight this was a stunning view!
In my email this morning ...another surprise!
My interview with Dionne of City of Dionne was published in
Meylah! (thanks Dionne!)

Happy Monday everyone!!

This is beautiful! And what a great idea to use pavers, love it! It has been horribly hot and humid here too, I love summer, but I would not be upset if the humidity went away!

Great photos!

Guess what, my sign arrived on Saturday and OH MY, I am sooooo thrilled and happy with it beyond words!!! I actually got goosebumps when I first looked at it which really gave my hubby a good laugh:) I'm going to put a blog post up about it in a couple of hours:)

Ohhhh darling Paula, you have no idea how much I love my sign!!! I was born in England and lavender is a scent that's near and dear to my heart. I love your idea of growing some real lavender, I think I'm going to try! I can see my lovely sign from the kitchen when I'm cooking and I just say ahhhhhhhh, life is good:) Thank you for visiting my blog today:)
