My neighbor Lynn bought me this cool purple flamingo for Mother's Day, and I have to say I just love it! And as you can see, my garden is coming along quite nicely, too. I have been sneaking out in the early morning and tossing slugs off my pretty plants. Still can't bring myself to smash them, but I'm getting there. A few are going into the beer trap and dying what I hope is an easy, at least boozy, death.
This morning I laughed out loud to see Jo's version of Beatrix Potter on her blog, A Brit in Tennessee. The gloves are a really nice touch. And finally, there are roses in bloom outside my front door, and they are so gorgeous and fragrant that I thought I'd share them with you. They were planted by a long-ago resident.
