Friday Already!

This week has flown by! My Daughter and 2 of my Grands were here for a few days, and the weather has been absolutely beautiful ! This is my favorite time of the year, so have been spending a lot of time outdoors, and less time on the computer - which is a "good thing". The "green stuff" seems to have slowed down, and now the tree "squiggles" and the "caterpillar" looking things are falling ! Don't you just love my "technical" terms I use for "Nature's debris". :-D I went to Lowes today and of course had to walk thru the garden section - I wanted to say "I want one of those , one of these, and 20 or so of those". So many beautiful flowers. I pretty much stick to my "tried and trues", as I do get a lot of shade in the Summer - which is a "good thing" - saves on the utility bill.

I did a post on my miniature greenhouse back some time ago and the pictures were small. Since I still have not re-photographed it, I took the pics. and enlarged them in Picasa. Sorry they are a little blurry. One of these days I will get around to re-doing them along with the other minis.
Click mosaic then click again to enlarge the pictures.
Since my miniatures are one of my favorite things, I am linking up with "Show and Tell Friday" hosted by Cindy @ My Romantic Home. and Laurie @ "A Few of My Favorite Things". Thanks Cindy and Laurie for hosting again this week.
Hope everyone has a great weekend !

Glenda,
Your miniatures are adorable! You have a green thumb as well. Your garden is looking so summery :) I love your technical words and if you don't mind I am going to begin calling them that too ... no matter how annoying those little things are :)
Blessings,

Oh, I'd love to have a human size greenhouse just like this!! I am so glad you are enjoying the weather. It's been a long time coming. I am the same way at garden centers. I only stop when I can't fit anything else in my cart!!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Glenda!

Hello Glenda~ I've just been lovin' your springy posts. I got such a chuckle over your talking flower baskets.
We keep getting more and more glimpses of spring, but our weather doesn't seem to want to make it's mind up either. We had gorgeous sunshine one day and thunder rain storm with high winds the next.

I too adore miniatures. They bring back great memories of my mom. She loved them as much as I do. we took a class together on making mini bows for mini Christmas presents. It was a pretty delicate process, but she and I had a blast together.

Sweet wishes,
Sara
