I will miss sitting here in our Homey surrounded by birds and lovely gardens..

Maybe next time we should stay longer…

Five weeks go by much to quickly.

  1. It's going to be hard to leave sicksta Del's park, I mean yard, or if I was English it would be garden and it really is all garden...ha

  2. I can see from her garden, that you and your sister have a similiar sense of whimsy.. :-)

  3. Dawn, your Sickstas has a beautiful yard and colorful gardens. I love all the Irises. And the fly traps are cool! Thanks for sharing.

  4. It's hard to believe you've been there 5 weeks. Sometimes it's nice to stop and smell the roses. Where to next?

  5. Beautious!! Sicksta Del has a very large green thumb!!!

  6. Oh, what a lovely garden!! I LOVE those flytrap plants ... how cool!

  7. Great photographs of the spring flowers. Glad you escaped the horrendous storms.
