Good Fences ~ Edition 61 ~

There are lots of walls and fences at Longwood Gardens,
here are some of the beautiful views we saw there last week!

We have a tripod and we are not afraid to use it!!

I just loved this cute little fence/border, made of natural materials.

Longwood Gardens...

A walk through paradise with the love of my life!!
No words are necessary...


May 14, 2015
It was a beautiful day, full sun and about 65 degrees...
The hubs took most of the pictures,
I think he enjoys taking the camera, watching me relax, 
and just enjoy the beauty.
We really had a wonderful day, the drive was great fun as well!

But hun, one thing we didn't need was those wings at Hooters,
on the drive home.
Nope, we definitely didn't need those!
But boy were they good!

More on Longwood Gardens tomorrow!!

Playing with Herbs...Part II

I find inspiration every single day, in so many ways.
From the places I visit, from the Internet
and from Pinterest.

And every day, in every single way, I am inspired by reading your blogs.
You guys have the best ideas for everything.

sent me a link to a blog,
she said "you are going to love this idea".
She does that all the time and boy was she right.

She sent me this link to
As soon as I saw what she had done, I knew I had to recreate the look.

I can't tell you how excited I am to share this 
fun gardening idea!!

Here's my take on things...



Burlap sacks, with a plastic liner.
Filled with topsoil,
and then my herbs, that I had started indoors.
TexWisGirl at The Run*A*Round Ranch  
found these for me on Etsy
and sent me the link.
The rest was history...

 Sweet Basil


For now, they are hanging from the posts on my brandy new fence.
I would like to find some hooks and hang them closer together!!

Here's my first harvest of Dill,
I made pasta salad with it...
 no pictures, I forgot, use your imagination, it was delish!!
