I got the most beautiful FAIRY for Mother's Day from Earl and Amber! She is meant for outdoors, but I might have to keep her in the house with me! I also got two of my favorite candles! Wheeeeee!

We also planted that neat juniper topiary type three sculpted piece today! I LOVE it, along with some ornamental kale.........wow so pretty like purple and green frilly cabbage and some Lamb's Ear which has these beautiful soft petals like a lamb's ear! They are deer and rabbit repellant which is good, because we have them around here! :0) Anyways, the yard is coming together after the new driveway last year! I love the pretty plants and know in a couple of years they will look great! There are some pretty yellow finches visiting my bird bath too! Oh lovely! Happy Mother's Day all! Amber is still having a very rough go of things! See the post below for more info....her spinal injection will be Wednesday and prayers are most appreciated for a good recovery! Thank you!
Hugs,Patti

Great pictures Patti! Love the fairy; I think I would want it inside, too :) Your topiaries are wonderful and the pictures of Amber for her birthday are great to see! I will be praying hard for her procedure on Wednesday in hopes that it will bring her relief which she so deserves and needs. Thanks for taking time to keep us updated on how she's doing as there are a lot of people praying hard. Love, Marilyn
