Friday's Flowers

The spruce trees are looking healthy - growing in leaps and bounds.  Just like my granddaughter Karli, who spent nearly two weeks with us!

We enjoyed being outside and playing in her playhouse.

Ladybugs and humming birds


She learned to water her playhouse flowers.

She spotted the gnomes hidden in the gardens.

It often happens to children - and sometimes to gardeners - that they are
given gifts of value of which they do not perceive until much later.

Until later,


  1. Love this week's Friday's Flowers post! You should make this an Alaskan "Meme"! Karli's flowers on the renovated playhouse are beautiful.

    Love, Joan

    P.S. So glad you included a gnome in your garden!!

  2. this is a great post! I am so glad you commented to me ...I am happy to meet you! I am going to follow you!

  3. Karli loved it all! Thank you for making it so special for her. I know in the years to come she'll be out there playing in the play house and helping you in the garden! Loves!
