Your garden is AMAZING Amanda! I love your garden updates! I have NO room sad...sniff..sniff! We have only 9 tomato plants, six peppers, cucumbers on a trellis...a few eggplant, lots of herbs..and TONS of perrenials and flowers! My dream is to have an area with raised beds, and pea gravel walkways..Its just that we are out of room! Whose idea was it to get the pool??? Sigh! I will just have to walk through your garden with YOU!

I just LOVE your pictures! Mimi is SO SO SO CUTE!!!! She is so curious looking..very intent on whatever she is doing...I bet it is so fun to just watch her play! I miss little ones! Summer is here too in Upstate NY...and its WONDERFUL! I love it! my garden is so pretty..all the little forget me nots, irisis, primrose, and geranium are blooming...I have pots everywhere! I could use a little helper to water:) I cant say I have any book suggestions...I am currently reading the Outlander series..and its VERY good, but not really light reading..In other news, I have just completed Miss Dandelion Doe! Gah! she is even cuter "in person"...I will say, the dress might have made me say one or two tiny swear words:) But, your directions were SO good...I didn't make a mistake at all..I just think I was stressing that I would, and I didn't want to mess up the liberty!! She did complain for just a bit, when I put on her kerchief and her boots...She said she thought 85 with 80% humidity was TOO hot for such things, but I gave her the good spot in front of the fan and she seems much happier!!!

Hahaha!!! This was awesome! I live on the Tug Hill Plateau in Upstate NY...We get more snow than the Rocky Mountains! Our avg. winter snowfall is 225 in. Now..that said, the lake effect bands can fluctuate..sometimes 5 miles to the north or south of us it is snowing 3-4 inches an hour, and the sun is shining over us! We LOVE to complain about the snow..but, people also LOVE to brag on their little corner of the tug when they get the MOST..Up here youll here, "You hear Adams got 54 inches yesterday?? Yeah, well, I heard Lowville got 56.." People love it when they got it the WORST..even by an inch or two! Its pretty hilarious! fly season is just around the corner:)
