A Little Too Big To Be A Name Tag And Other Stories You Missed!

My computer monitor kept getting darker and darker.  So I got some photos transferred over the weekend!  Yippee! This was the night in late March where I received the Master Gardener Emeritus award.  Yes, I know I'm too young to retire, but the list has to start somewhere, doesn't it?  Yes, I thought I would get a nice little name tag or something.   The or something was this beautiful Wilton Armetale platter!  What a surprise!  I will really treasure it always.  Can't lose that, can you?

Then around the same time, Carl's Tree Service came by with their magic machines and got rid of a lot of our overgrown (the ivy on the roof) plants.  We have a really clean slate now!

I need to run and do some errands.  Hope you are having a good day wherever you may be.  It is going to be warm and mostly sunny in the 'Burgh!

Congrats! I have a question. I just started following your blog and there are so many posts, love it, but do you have a blog on getting started growing herbs and how to go about it if you live in an area where the deer literally come up to the house to snack on my roses? I do have a screened in porch and thought of container gardening so would love some direction on this. Thank you so much for a wonderful blog.

Thanks Becca and I'm having a great day. Hope you are as well.

Hi Linda, Well deer know that roses are an edible flower. No, I don't have a blog on growing herbs. Maybe I should start one. I want to do a book, but just haven't gotten around to it. Let me think about it.

Thanks FlowerLady!
