About Me

My photo
I am a retired English teacher and department head, the mother of three, grand mother of three, and have been married to the same man for 42 years. I subscribe to Dr. PM Forni's concept of Civility. I was born in South Philadelphia and grew up in the 'burbs. I love soft pretzels and cheesesteaks, the Phillies, the Eagles, and San Diego. I love being Mom, Aunt Kathy, Nona Kathy, and Teacher. I spend a lot of time in my gardens in the spring and summer, and in the winter I plan what I'm going to plant. I also am an avid reader and photographer.

June's A Bloomin'

Blue Ridge Gal mentioned a "Green Weekend" - hosted by another of her blogger friends, so I thought I'd get in the spirit and share some of the latest photos of my garden.

Your flowers are so green, lush, and attractive. You definitely have a green thumb. Doesn't look like the rabbits have done too much damage.

So pretty! Right now you can't see my flowers for my weeds...the rain makes it tough to have a pretty garden...but you do regardless of your weather...how do you do it??

Linda Reeder said...

Great color. My flowers are still waiting for the warmth of sun!

Gin, Thank you! We mulch very heavily, but still the weeds peek through -- just keep after them -- a little each day.

Hi Kathy ~ I haven't been by to visit for almost a month! You have been busy and your hard word in your gardens have paid off. Your new patio, your property, everything is just *bloomin beautiful*
Sorry to read about your daughter's trip to the ER but glad that she is going to be O.K.
Enjoy the day with family today!

I love all those pots. My favorite is (I think) the third photo from the top, the one with the little blue flowers.
