Gardens around farm buildings...

Tour #3 of 4 (I think) This is our "back yard" behind 
the house. My kitchen window faces the barns, 
workshop, chicken coop and sheds.
This first photo is the back of the gift shop. 
Same location as I have on my blog header
~yes, things change in two years!!!~

I think the black bear that I saw one Sunday evening
stepped on my daisies while 
meandering through the yard...

 I need to put something behind these chairs...any ideas?
 I got my garden in really late, and purchased the plants 
on the left side. Pumpkins, squash, tomatos and peppers.
On the right I planted cosmos, zinnias, sunflowers,
morning glories and herbs.
It has already filled out since Saturday!
 My little garden shed was formerly a turkey barn. Hubs
built it, used it once and that was enough for him.
So I adopted it! We used barn siding and an old barn 
door. (Not sure where it came from...)

This is Pebbles. She has been with us for 15 years! I 
also call her "Cleocatra" since she thinks I should wait 
on her and she always takes the best seat in the porch!
Have a blessed 
4th of July weekend!!!!

Prim Pails, Posies and Porches~Garden Tour #2

Here is my second picture post of my gardens which
were on the garden tour last Saturday.
This one features the porch my husband
added on to our farmhouse, 
the olde enamelware-top farmhouse table,
many of our made-on-the-farm birdhouses,
and pails full of flowers...

Tune in next time!!!

ALSO: Just back from a shopping trip with 
wonderful new additions to the shop...
Garden stakes, birdhouses, berry garlands,
candle rings, picks, baskets, shelves, tables, 
battery candles, prim holders and MORE!

Surprise Gifts...

I landed on Tammy's blog a few weeks back, and she was hosting a "swap". I have observed swaps among bloggers, but never participated in one, so I thought it might be fun to give it a try...
This was a secret swap, so we didn't know who we would receive a package from. 
To my delight, I received these pieces in the mail a few days ago...
A framed stitchery,
A beautiful angel (my favorite!)
An inspirational book,
and a hand-made pillow ornament.
Thank you Tamara!!! They are lovely!
{...Tamara did pop in on my blog and leave a 
comment, but I had no idea she was investigating... ;)}

It's been fun meeting new bloggers through this swap. 
Pop on over to Tammy's blog for other posts on the swap.
