You guessed it, my favourite! Seaglass, and it’s pink.

Our lives are turned upside down when a friend or family member has found out they have cancer.  How often we feel untouchable, unbreakable yet another mother, daughter, child, grandmother, aunt or friend reminds us of how precious our lives really are.  Don’t wait be tested.

In memory of June, my mother who passed away January 6, 2006

I’m linking into Tea Time Tuesday where Sandi is hosting a special Pink Tea Party in honor of breast cancer awareness month.

God Bless,

Cindy

front_flower_beds

 

The front of the house looks amazing when in bloom of the lavender is highlighting the daylilies. 

However,

gettng_started

 

change almost always takes place here at one time or another and for one reason or another.

The front flower bed was moved,

15 feet back from the driveway.

In order,

removed_bed

 

to accommodate parking for our Bed and Breakfast guests.

The French Gardener built me a wooden frame, 

new_box

 

and I took a small clip off each daylily, then moved the lavender and bulbs.

truck_load_gravel

 We  He spread gravel with the wheelbarrow for 3 days.

I don’t know why we didn’t think we had enough.

flower_box

 

We had so much gravel left over we edged both sides of the driveway,

extra_gravel

 

put gravel under the picnic area we built off the Confederation Trail for public use.

We even,

back_field

 

made a stone walkway from the trail to our back picnic area.

path_from_Confederation_trail

 

This is our bridge and path from the Confederation Trail.

We still have a lot left over and we are planning what to do with it next.  Actually I’m doing the planning my French Gardener is rolling his eyes because I simply suggested we had a lot left over what could we  do with it. 

I stopped to check out the sedum,

doesn’t it look nice in front of the Rhododendron?

mini_tea_jar

I made a few tablescapes.

helping_hands

Invited my grandchildren to play in the dirt and made,

fairy_bridge

another fairy garden.  This one has a bridge over the water and moss so the fairies have a smooth landing pad.

Well that was my week in review, oh I almost forgot to mention I met a kindred spirit this week and found out that we share a lot of the same likes.

 I figure though, if you take the time to get to know most folks you would find they have a lot in common. 

Have a wonderful weekend, and to my Canadian friends and family,

god_bless

Happy Thanksgiving,

Cindy
