taking a break to garden

I'm taking a week off to get my house and garden finished.  Not that those things ever get finished but you know what I mean. 

It's also my birthday week and I thought I deserved a week of weeding for a nice present.  Those darn gardeners just aren't coming!!
I am so pleased with my cottage garden this year.  (you know how we like to show off our babies.)  It really has taken off and is looking more like its been there for a while all rambley and wild. 

Now if only I could get a pretty little thatched roof cottage....

Have a great week.....until we meet again my friends. 

I'll miss ya!

Sunny hugs,

p.s. Petunia did have babies!  We've had these two hopping around for the last week.  So tiny they could fit in your hand.  And yes I know that is poison ivy up there.  It's been a good year for that also!

Oh deary me...how lovely your gardens are Jenn! I always fancy an English garden...quite fine at hiding those nasty weeds. Perhaps Momma Petunia shall teach the youngsters to munch away at the weeds only? "Dream, dream, dream..."

Enjoy your gardens, and I wish you the HAPPIEST of birthdays!

Warm hugs and wishes...

I just love your cottage garden, really nice. I know what you mean, no gardener here either. But I love to piddle in my flower beds, just went to the garden centers today to pick up those last few flowers, well maybe the last trip, say that every year and end up back buying plants, addictive. LOL Have a good time in your flowers, can't wait to see more. Vicky
