Places to Sit

Places to Sit
Today was the East Gwillimbury Friends of the Library Garden Tour.   Our garden was one of 11 gardens to visit.   We had 80 very enjoyable people come through.   Garden visitors are always appreciative of the time and effort you put forth getting your your flowers to look their very best and get out all the pesky weeds and grass out where it is not wanted.    We had lots of interesting questions.   I got a nice sunburn on the tops of my feet and the top of my shoulders.   All in all a good day but don’t ask me to do it all again anytime soon.    I hope you had a good weekend too.   Valerie

Hi Val
Glad the tour went well and the weather was perfect.
I see the flowers in the basket, nice touch, and of course many places for the guests to have a rest.

Hi. this is only my second time at Mosaic Monday as I am a newby blogger. Thank you for stopping by and your kind comment. I have had such a great time looking at all the posts and travelling around the world. I too garden on a veritable sand dune, so had a chuchle at your blog's name! But garden we will Sand or no Sand!! Your seats looks totally relax to the max...

East Gwillimbury must be one fabulous and beautiful place to live. It is now on my “bucket List” of places to visit. Congrats on your garden being on the Library tour. I cannot imagine having 80 people walking through my yard. It is beautiful and the mosaic is stunning, Genie
