Welcome to my Garden

   All the words, photos, paintings and other creations are my work unless otherwise indicated. I have tried to remember to credit any sources I used.                                         


 Hello and welcome to my garden. I started this blog for my family and friends in the real world and my buddies on Wiglington and Wenks. Please leave me a comment so I know you found your way here.                                                   

if you want to be happy for an hour – get drunk                                                   

if you want to be happy for a year – get married                                                   

if you want to be happy for life – plant a garden

 Gardens fill your soul with beauty and connect your hands to Mother Earth – helping you remember who you really are – and what it truly important in life.

 Gardens are perfect for social gatherings – tea with a friend – outdoor cooking with the family – where the dog can sit with everyone and no one gets yelled at for spilling things.                                                   

Waiting for dinner!!


  Gardens give us refuge from the human world of noise and pollution – or a home overflowing with guests. They provide a quiet place to read a favorite book.

  Hope you enjoy your time here as much as I did creating this garden for you.

I made all the teddy bears  from original patterns by Linda Mead of Spare Bear Parts. She is now retired but she taught wonderful courses through the mail, complete with video instructions and I am forever grateful to her wonderful teaching.
