Deena's Garden Tour for a Cure

The Breast Cancer Site

Here is my little piece of the desert. It's not much, but we've done a lot of work in it the past couple months. Digging up beds here and there, decorating the fairy tree, etc. Before the kids, we used to have a grown up garden, everything very matchy matchy. Lil was born and we not only had time to tend it, but didn't see it as a livable space for a child to play. By extending the patio, adding misters, and little magical touches, it is becoming a no longer matchy garden, but a garden that has things in it that makes everyone happy. I didn't show it all...one day I will. We did just put up a swing for Madeline Mae on the fairy tree. She loves it, sings wee the whole time, and the windchimes sing along with her sing she is practically moving the whole tree!
That's all I can write...I have to get back to my Father's Day duties. Love you Deena! So happy to hear your wonderful news! xoxo

Our bird feeder...a find at an antique store...even though I don't think it is that old!

We have a hummingbird that visits us and a huge yellow and black butterfly. Our fairy trees grows lemonems (as Lillian once called them).

Under the fairy tree... a fairy house in progress and our first visitor! Lillian is growing wildflowers here from seed...they aren't up yet.

Beautiful garden pics! It almost makes me motivated enough to go weed...almost.
Okay, I'm new at this and not sure of blogging etiquate. You left a great comment on my blog and I'm not sure where to reply back to it! Do I do it on my blog? Or here where I know you'll see it? (Help me out ladies!) Anyway how cool that your aunts were in the circus!!! I am now going to be obsessed with finding you that circus poster. Have you read the book "Water For Elephants"? It is a great story about a circus during the depression. (It's a current bestseller so would appeal to all, not just circus fans.) Thanks so much for the comment and nice to meet you!
