Sounds as if you are enjoying a lovely summer. Your home and garden look so charming. Now your entire neighborhood will as well.


Beautiful!!! I voted! Thanks!

I guess we're lucky that we don't have that many deer that visit our yard. We did see a young buck across the road a few weeks ago.. some Laotian families grow flowers there for farmer's markets.. I bet they weren't happy with him! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


My parents (in Rochester, NY) had to finally fence in their backyard to keep the deer at bay. It got so bad in their neighborhood, one homeowner stuck plastic flowers in his beds as the deer would eat everything else! Hopefully, you won't have to resort to that...lol :) I'm going to go check out the embroidery pages...fun!

I always love your beautiful photos and I'm more than just a little jealous of the weather that would allow you to have lush gardens. Here in California I'm careful about water usage so my yard is often dry looking. Those roses even with the fence are lovely.

I think it’s a good idea to take inspiration from beautiful magazine clippings when making our own gardens. Every time I look at pictures from old magazines, I do get that warm feeling inside of me that makes me want to do something to my garden I haven’t already done. And you know what? Your pink roses look like they came just out of one of those magazines!


Lovely pics of berry, roses and all. It is a nice title.."peaceful places" because your home and garden looks so peaceful.
