I haven't spent a lot of time blogging this
summer.  I have enjoyed my garden and
I have been busy doing lots of things.

Time has flown by.....

I recently got the scare of my life when I
 realized that a bat was inside the deck
 umbrella.  This was the second time 
that happened this summer.

I also got quite a surprise recently when
a lady knocked at my front door and
brought a sign to go in my yard!
Needless to say, I was shocked.

I will say that the yard  was so
 much prettier early in
the summer!


  1. Congratulations!Your garden is adorable!Wonderful flower arrangement as ever!Hugs and blessings!

  2. Congratulations! This is an honor well-deserved. I love your Beatrix Potter garden!

  3. A bat would give me a fright too. Congratulations on winning the yard of the month from your local garden club. That is quite an honor! Your flower bouquet from your gardens flowers is gorgeous.

  4. Congrats on your award! 🌻 (I think they need to work on a prettier sign.)

  5. Congratulations! Your garden deserves the honor! The garden bouquet is beautiful!

  6. I love your garden and the bouquets you create, Bernideen! You should dry some of your hydrangeas. I have a gorgeous dried arrangement I did myself from the 'Limelight' hydrangeas. So pretty, and easy to do. Congrats on your yard of the month! Well deserved.

  7. What a lovely honor to be garden of the month. Your garden is beautiful. Your bouquets are amazing.

  8. Your yard looks pretty enough to deserve that award~ But I know what you mean. In this intense heat and lack of rain our yard and garden is starting to look tired. The summer has flown by for us it always does, but this one seemed extra fast.

  9. Your lovely gardens deserve that award!

    Oh the bat! I'd have flipped out!

    Enjoy the last days of summer!

  10. Well deserved, Bernideen. Your garden is always beautiful! And amazing with the heat we have had this summer! Hugs and congratulations!

  11. I'm not shocked at all, Bernideen! Your serious garden skills deserve that sign *every* month!
