It's been a busy weekend here at Buttermilk Cottage.
We were part of our neighborhood garden tour.
Most (all) the credit for the garden here
goes to my sister Nancy's efforts.
My job for the day was to sit on the front porch,
to welcome visitors,
offer them a glass of iced tea,
and send them around to
Nancy in the backyard.
Nancy has named the garden, "The Catbird Garden."
Although I am not a gardener,
I am a cook,
so I have my own little plot of basil
just outside the backdoor.
Our garden shed is an excellent example
of turning a sow's ear into a silk purse!
An old bench no longer worthy of seating can still
be put to good use in the garden.
Notice the window boxes upstairs.
They're new since last fall.
Here's proud "Nanniepannie"
ready to show off her garden.
