Last week, Kathy was so very kind to share her 5 pound box of See's candy that she got for her birthday with us and all of our visitors. Thank you Kathy.
Phil, her very charming and thoughtful husband knows that she loves nuts and chews, and has the sales gal put together a box just for her. Thank you Phil.
Traditions are important...I'd say critical. We get up on saturday and there are yard sales, we eat turkey on Thanksgiving (this one I tried to change and it didnt go over so well), and there is See's candy for celebrations! Thank you See's candy.
When Ruby comes home from her summer away, we intend to sit her down with us and have her watch the episode of "I Love Lucy" when Lucy and Ethel work in the candy factory. There are some things we need to take responsibility for, and this is one, maybe we'll watch it with a box of our own.
Before the birth of this little shop of ours, there was a lot of time spent in the the dirt. The garden has gone through a lot of changes with yard art, styles of furniture and different kinds of flowers that we have tried to grow. Some took, others, not so much.
This years blooms (minus the very lackluster lilac year in SLO) were over the top beautiful. One of the reasons the garden is more full this year, is the benefits of shrubbery. A lot of flowering shrubs filled in spaces that were a challenge--they are literally no maintenance.
Ever wonder where all the broken and chippy concrete art goes? Our opinion is that it is no less beautiful. How does your garden grow? Send us photos!!
