FIRST, THANKS TO everyone who stopped by to say "hello". It's really nice meeting you all. Come again and don't be a stranger.

The weather has been so gorgeous in Southern New England! Just perfect for gardening and grilling.

Cielo @ The House in the Roses is hosting "Show Me Your Garden Party" and I am participating.

The petunias smell soooo good and are happy in this old wheelbarrow that BF found in the trash. I love free stuff and who doesn't!

My very first potted rose...hope and pray that this beauty will come back next spring!

Check out my flickr album for more pics.

And to welcome the first day of summer, I am hosting a Tea Garden Party tomorrow for 2 of my co-workers. That's for another post.

Have a great weekend all!
