  1. I think the garden area looks wonderful and tropical and so inviting! Fabulous job!

  2. Looks very peaceful. Willie would be one of my top celebs to road trip with I think. I would imagine the stories he could tell would fill the whole trip.

  3. Nice garden tour. Coleus is a great plant.It thrives even in shade and has so much color in the leaves.

  4. I love this garden! It looks so inviting...think I'll sit a spell. Enjoy Willie.

  5. Willie Nelson, that's better than even that beautiful garden. What fun to be in one place long enough to enjoy this.

  6. Oh my Dawn .... this is a WONDERFUL garden! You must have a green thumb!
    Have Fun with Willie tonight :)

  7. I have seen it in person and it is very lovely!!

  8. Wow--beautiful! Glad to see you're home again, though I'll miss your amazing travel photos.

    Everyone I know who grew lettuce had it bolt very quickly; broccoli as well (before they even got florets). I think we all had a too-hot-too-fast summer.

  9. Looks likes a nice spot for relaxation and meditation.

  10. Looks like a really nice place to chill!

  11. Delightful. I think you must be planning to stay put until fall, because who could leave such a beautiful, peaceful place when it's in bloom?

    Yes to Willie - he played a concert here last year. Great show - I hope your concert was as good as ours.

  12. Though your garden is small, it is big with heart, color and beauty. You have done a wonderful job. Lovely garden tour!

  13. Holy Mole...I am finally getting around to thanking you all for you kind comments.
    I must be busy or something..hee hee.

    Thanks everyone..I do appreciate your comments. I know how busy life can be.
    I have a rainy day here today and I am trying to play catch up.

    Thanks again..
    I havent seen my little garden in a few weeks...Mom and Dad are looking after it.
    I cant wait to see and eat my tomatos!
