By Request Only










I'm not the kind of person who throws a bunch of pictures of my plants at anyone, but I've had so many requests that I am obliged to post some up. I never really got the whole photographing your plants thing. My mother used to send me photos of her flowers every year. Well, actually there were also a lot of photos of gardening, too. Why in the world did she think I wanted a picture of her with a shovel, standing next to a pile of dirt with a twig sticking up out of it? Anyway, it's been raining so much here that my yard is all swollen and ready to burst. I had a little visitor today, isn't he cute? I found out later in the day that my neighbor is missing a turtle, but I don't know where it went. And I couldn't help hearing my neighbor revving his motorcycle for what seemed like hours on his porch, so I thought "no wonder the turtle left".
Have a great week end every one! xo

He's cute indeed ! Did you give him a name yet ?
You should ...I guess now he has met you, he will come over once and a while ....now we know the reason for his escape !
Give him some salad ; he will fall in love with you and follow you everywhere in the garden ...
Have a great weekend too Diane !! XXX

I didn't know you could grow turtles, I learn something new each day! ;^)

My neighbor's kids think their turtle has died and gone to heaven, so I just spent half of the morning looking for it. I'm sure it will turn up eventually.

I'd run away from home too if I was that turtle :-) Love the pictures. It looks so peaceful in your garden. Have a great weekend!

hahaha, look at the turtle! The garden looks awesome. Reminds me of my youth, having to help my Grams plants her veggie garden.
