I'm Excited!

Let me introduce you to Judy Condon.
Judy is the author of the
"Simply Country"
book series.

Her books cover real country homes, decor and seasonal decorating.
2 years ago she published her first garden book.
Simply Country Gardens
it was such a hit with readers that her second garden book,
Just Country Gardens 
was released this year!

The reason I am so excited ?
(Aside of course, from being greatly inspired by all of the beautiful gardens).
Our own humble gardens will be in her 2013 garden book!
(Judy hasn't chosen a name yet, but I will definitely keep you up on the title and 
release date once it's announced !)

In the mean time you can order and of Judy's books thru

Enjoy and tell your friends!

My thirsty little helper!

Lacy has been "helping" me in the garden.
She works so hard , often checking the perimeter for strangers,
 running along the fence with her dog friends
checking on me now and then and sunning herself on the deck.
She gets very hot and loves to have a nice little drink from the
freshly refilled bird bath!
I guess the birds won't mind!

Tomorrow is the 
"Quailcrest Garden Fair"
in Wooster, Ohio

Have a sunny day!

Spring blues . . .

Just a couple photos to share of the earlier "Spring Blues".

I love when all the blues bloom together!
Siberian Iris, Spiderwort, False Indygo and Columbine.
Bird girl looks quite content!

In the "Wild" garden . . . it does need tamed a bit this year!
Cranesbill (2 kinds of hardy geranium) more Siberian as well as 
other Iris and lots of Columbine.
