White Wednesday

Whites in the garden

I promised you a picture of my Sweet Summer Clematis in bloom.

Well, at least I think that is its name.

It grows wild here.

The bees simply love it.

It has a sweet smell.

And grows profusely if you give it water or plant it where the roots get lots of moisture.

My white geranium and Dusty Miller

It is so very dry here.  I shouldn't complain because I know there are states that are even more dry,

as well as states that are too wet.  I water almost every day right now.  The entrance around the shop door seems like an oasis compared to the rest of the yard.


Crafts Fair weekend went just wonderfully. 

We served 80 people at lunch and sales were great in the shop. 
If you didn't make it for lunch this year, be sure to make it next year.  We serve Mountain Top Chicken Salad on a croissant, Fruit salad, Fruit tea ,

and wonderful cakes for dessert.

 Thanks to all of you who made the drive up.
If you couldn't make it last weekend, there are still lots of great items in the shop and we add more new things each week!
Hope to see you soon,
