A bit of a surprise arrived at my mailbox on Wednesday..

Tuesday Display Chain hosted by

I could smell the goodness inside the box before I even opened it
She sent one of her Gable House Tea Candles, a Cinnamon Sunflower and Beeswax Pot
(tucked into the basket above with some dried sunflowers I had)
Wish there was a scratch~n~sniff option on your computer screen, everything smells Heavenly!

Thank You Misi! for my lovely prizes and graciously hosting the weekly chain!


Yesterday I made a stop at the Agway at the bottom of our hill...  mistake, LOL
On Sale....all Veggie, Annual and Perennial Packs

~additions to the table garden~
Hungarian Wax Peppers
also got some fennel, herbs and flowers
(well not some, like 2 1/2 flats ;)
oh, but they were saying "Traci, take me home, I need some TLC and room to grow"
all they need is some pruning and fertilizer

one of the new pots I put together on my potting bench

another one, in a make-do plant stand...
(rusty tomato cage turned upside down)

and.........another one

Maygan & I made some plant markers last evening for the garden
I think they are cute, she did all the lettering

...take time to enjoy your Freedom
..............Family &


  1. Happy Birthday to your hubby on Sunday -- it's my birthday, too!
    Wishing you all a happy 4th of July!

  2. I have the same problem when I go to the nurseries too..the plants call my name and want to come home with me. I am almost maxed out here at home for plants. However, we do have 6 acres that we own rurally and will be starting to separate and transplant some perennials along our driveway embankment.

    Hope your hubby has a spectacular birthday. Enjoy the holiday.


  3. Traci: Your garden looks the signs you both made! Are those birdies photoshopped? Cooool! Love your goodies from Misi...she's so talented!
    Have a great 4th!

  4. forgot to say that your sweet annie looks terrific...waaaay taller than you put miracle grow on yours?

  5. The new header is perfect! The goodies from misi so wonderful and generous.Have fun sounds like you have a full weekend!~Amy

  6. Wow! Just a great post! I love all the pots you created, I can't resist extra plants either. Your sweetie did great with the signs, they are so cute! I had a real "duh" moment looking at that tomato cage pot holder, I've been trying for months to figure out where to put some pots I have without sitting them on the ground, which would then fill with ants here! Now I know, so this afternoon I will pull out the old cages and get those pots filled! Thanks for the great post! God Bless America! Happy 4th!

  7. Love your new header - Those indigo buntings just fascinate me! And your plants look like they're thriving!! I love this time of year when (usually) I have all my plants planted and then I can just pick up the fun little "extras" knowing exactly where they're going and what I can do with them. Unfortunately, the weather here this year put so far behind I didn't get the herbs, veggies or flowers I usually do and wanted, and can't find them anywhere anymore. Gonna be a sparse season for plants around the Crows' nest! Love your garden markers! Maygan did great with the lettering! Happy b-day to your hubby! Hope you enjoy your busy holiday weekend! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  8. I love your new header, very natural and earthy.
    and the garden signs....inspirational. I might have to make some of those, too.....
    Have a safe and happy holiday!

  9. Impressive! Love your creativeness:) Thanks for the fireworks and happy bday to your hubby.


Thank you for visiting & taking time to leave your kind words for me...♥♥
