Garden Show

Yesterday, H and I attended the Bangor Garden Show. After the long, snowy winter, we were both desperate for some vibrant color, and we were not disappointed.

Oh, how I wish my garden looked like this! I can't wait to get dirt under my fingernails and start whipping the garden into shape. I'm sure It won't look this professional, but then, I'm partial to the wild cottage look.

This bronze statue of a deer with her fawn sitting in the green grass was a favorite snapshot for all the show attendees. I had to stand in line to get a shot of it.

Last fall, we took down some cherry saplings and I stored them away til I could get a good idea for them. I need a new trellis for my Firecracker Clematis, so here's another project.

Of course, I had to take a photo of this little guy, now didn't I?

All in all, we had a terrific day. The garden show was nice, but it would have been better if there had been more displays.

Later that day, Spike insisted on a back rub.....

It was the least I could do since he was miffed at being left alone all day long.

Life is Good

Hugs, Giddy

Love the bronze statue of the doe and fawn! I have a little gnome almost like the guy you've pictured. Spike looks likes he's enjoying his back scratch!

Love your photos from the Bangor garden show; it looks more colorful than this year's NE Flower Show down in Boston (harrumph) - which was well-intentioned, but while claiming to promote "green" actually kinda failed at both "green" and flower-show quality, imho. So I'm enjoying your photos instead :) !!!

btw, love the cats - especially those names. Too funny! My own, "George," deserves a more creative moniker, but it's too late now. George it is.
Am enjoying reading your blog, and wondering how you cope with the ever-present wind on the island. Wow.

Everything at the show looks so beautiful and lush, and the deer statue is darling. :) We're not so far away, here in Nova Scotia, and we've probably shared similar winters. Glad to see an end in sight!
