A Daughter's Gardening Touch..

Good Evening my dears..
Yesterday I was saying that I was going to Shonda's (our daughter's) house with some friends and that I would take a few pics...
So... here they are...
I just love this vine that wraps all around her veranda... She also loves prim birdhouses...

My fav spot whenever we visit..
I so love a porch swing.. Any kind of swing, really... smile..
Can you see that sweet little Ginger sitting over there?  I wonder who she is looking at..
Perhaps these genuine Canadian geese with their babes..
This little lake is full of water lilies...
I was tempted to try and get one for my wee water garden that I am trying to concoct ..
Shonda talked me out of it... I guess she didn't want to use her nursing and rescuing skills today... lol...
oh well... My friend Scot who lives here and brings me fresh trout will probably find me one.. just 1... That's all I need... grin..

A beautiful living arrangement...
And here she is discussing her latest garden adventure with our friends...

It seems to be coming along fine...
Oh.. and I snapped one from inside that I thought you might like...
This is an olde icebox and some vintage glassware...
See.. she takes after her mother a tiny bit.. grin..
Hers is just neater... smile..

Well, sweet ladies that is all for tonight..

The shop was busy this afternoon.. I had a wonderful chat with an 86 year old woman who is in better shape than I am and learned a lot of neat things.. She was hilarious and had me in stitches..
A good laugh.. I need one every once in awhile and you just never know who God will provide to give it to you...
She was such a dear soul and she hales from Newfoundland..

Thank you again for stopping by and do leave a comment if you have the time..
Peace to you all...
