I have missed you all so very much!
I would like to thank each and every one of you for your kind words and prayers after the death of my friend. Although the passing of a loved one is never easy it really did help to "hear" your kind, loving and thoughtful words.
This summer has me jumping! The gardens have preoccupied my time, as well as trips with Gracie and her cousin Izabel (who is staying the summer! Yay!)...we have also been busy bringing formerly homeless animals to their new families! Life has been good!
I don't know if I will ever be able to catch up here in Blogland but Lord knows I will try.
Please leave a response and let me know how you are doing?
In the meantime, I will leave you with photos of items I have picked up here and there for our home. The photos are the actual Craigslist ads. They look a bit different now!
Hm. Seems I have no photos of the giant Gothic church window, the French Louis XVI chaise, the iron urns, antique leather wingback library chair, etc...but I will!
My parterre garden is almost finished! Five hundred one gallon boxwoods. Our soil is pure concrete so it has been an adventure! I will, of course, take photos when it is complete. The informal English gardens on either side of the house are done, for the most part...although I need to do some rearranging, (you cannot always go by heights on plant labels!)
