A few pictures of my garden and more….

I don’t have an award winning garden like my parents, but I’m pretty happy how it’s turning out so far this year.

The pink roses are ready to pop!

I love my yellow roses but so do the bugs! It’s early enough that I’m not fighting the critters for them.

I wish I knew what this rose was called. It’s so unusual. A pretty red, but the underside of the petals is a silvery white.

And this is how I found a rose one afternoon. Some little bird broke out of his egg. I just don’t know how the shell got there!

These peonies were from my great-uncle’s garden. He passed away last year. So I will think of him every time I enjoy these flowers. I love how they are soft pink with a creamy white center. And oh, how I wish you could smell them!

Pretty soft pink fuchsia.

My garden shed.

And while I’m so enjoying wearing sandals on my nicely polished tootsies (Thank you my kidlets for my wonderful spa pedicure for Mothers Day!), I’m looking forward to wearing these gorgeous pink cottage rose socks! They are from Victorian Trading Company. They also come in blue. So I’ll have to get those next time. Aren’t they the sweetest??

I haven’t found any fabulous vintage tablecloths at sales lately. But this weekends find sure made up for it. I got this framed vintage print of embossed pink roses by Catherine Klein! I couldn’t believe it when I saw it just sitting there on a picnic table! It was late morning and things like this are usually long gone. But there she was just waiting for me! And – get this – I paid $3.00 for her! Yep, only $3.00. That never happens! Beautiful understated gold frame, wooden slat backing, great colors…all for only $3.00!! Oh this so makes up for any missed tablecloths! Now I just have to find the perfect place!

Congrats to my parents! Fairview Garden Club Garden of the Month!

My parents have the most beautiful garden and was nice to see them recognized this past May. Like to take a stroll with me?

Their picture was in a Saturday edition of Homes in our local newspaper.

Dad’s decorative contribution!

This is Harmony. She loves the porch too! She even has her own swing. This dog adores my kids so much, I swear she’d walk though fire for them. She’s not the prettiest dog, but she has tons of love in her ol’ heart!

Well, there you have the garden tour. Mom’s always adding and changing her design, so I’ll be sure to share updated photos!

Happy Monday Everyone!

Hope you all are having a beautiful day! It's been crazy busy here, more so then usual if that's possible. I have so much I want to share with you. I want to post a full picture of my mangle. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it, my mangle has a nice sturdy cover. So right now it has my change of Fiestaware dishes on it waiting to be put away. So as soon as that's done, I'll give you a better view.

Also, my parents had the "Garden of the Month" awarded by the Fairview Garden Club. They had their picture in the newspaper. And I snapped a few shots. So I hope to post that this week.

I'm behind at the Vintage Tablecloth Lovers Club also. So I will be spending sometime doing updates this week. I don't want the kind ladies at the club to get mad at me! LOL!

Plus I'm so looking forward to catching up on all your blogs! That will be my reward at the end of the day!

I did manage to mark down four lovely items for todays Monday Markdowns at The Pink Rose Cottage. Even with all I have going on this week, I'll ship very quickly! No reason you should have to wait!

Well, time to begin crossing off items on my to-do list! Since I've been spending a lot of my time in my garden, I'll leave you with a picture of this somewhat rare Wilendur gardening tablecloth. Hope you all have a great week!
