Pictures from My Garden of Weedin'

I have been hopping around and saw some great pictures of Melanie's garden and thought I should post some of mine since this is where I am spending a great deal of time lately. We are in the process of putting down mulch in all of the beds, which is a thankless task. But it sure keeps the weeds down so in the long run I guess it is a good idea.



We put in a small pond about 5 years ago , took all of the grass out and replaced it with beds and a stone path. DH thought it would be less work! Ha! Ha! But he loves puttering around in the yard.






We love sitting out here in the evening watching the birds come in to feed. You can't see the feeders but there are 6 of them! At times we need an air traffic controller out there! LOL

My gargoyles are there to protect the yard but as you can see they are often asleep on the job! Chip made this appearance yesterday morning. I was looking out the upstairs window and thought my gargoyle had grown hair!


On the quilting front, I am trying to do bits every night but I'm not always successful! I have a bunch of deadlines coming up with my Round Robin, PCs, and my journal pages. Summer is a tough time for me, quilting wise, I just LOVE the hot weather and need to be outside.

I was on Libby's blog for her blogiversary and have promised to PAY IT FORWARD! Sewww, the first three ladies who post will be treated to a treat from me by the end of October! If you have never been to see Libby or Melanie, please drop by! Both of their blogs are refreshing places to stop and visit on a hectic day! They are super ladies and super quilters!



Well, I'm off to Block Island this weekend and will try to post again next week. I find I am good about visiting everyone and I do leave comments but if I have visitors, NO ONE is HOME! So I will try to be a better host here at Quilt til you Wilt. Have a great weekend!

Your yard is lovely! Especially the pond. I want a pond but have not tackled that yet. Wish my husband loved to putter in the yard. Looks like yours does more than putter! Thanks for the pics.

Hi Annie, what a lovely garden..*VBS* reminds me of The Secret Garden without the wall. I'd love to watch the stars come out while listening to your water feature..*VBS* Thanks for sharing...even Chip! He's adorable.
Hope you are enjoying the summer, you can have my share of any and all heat! Sending hugs, Finn

Your garden is beautiful. Wish I could say the same here . . . it has been a harsh summer for my plants.
Enjoy your weekend getaway *s*

You've got such a beautiful garden. I just hate hot weather so the weeds have overtaken my yard at the moment.

Such a pretty yard - how nice to see you encourage the wildlife. 8-) Wish it was mine.
