Spring Showers!

We've had so much rain in Central VA this spring and I love it!  Everything is lush and green and we've had only a few uncomfortably hot days so far. I've spent hours on the front porch with the corgi girls.  Projects in the house have been nonexistent!

I want to share some of my outside pictures with you.

This great basket was a flea market find for $4.  

My corgi topiary has flourished with all the rain.  I have had it five years. A sweet blogging friend (Angela) from WVA sent me succulents to plant in it when I first purchased it.  For the most part, I have to replace the plants each year except the hens and chickens.


I've been making garden angels with dishes that I buy 
at Goodwill. They are beautiful when the sun shines through them.  I use E-6000 glue and it seems to work well outside.

I have the above ground cover growing in my yard and can't seem to find identifying information about it. Does anyone know the name? 

I can't believe tomorrow is the first day of June.  In a few weeks, I will be marking something very important off my bucket list.  Will fill you in later.


  1. I love your corgi topiary and your garden angels! Such cute ideas:-)

  2. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to your home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.

  3. Hello, just dropping by to say hello and hope this finds you doing well
