Vintage RETRO CUTE Travel Trailer - For Sale!

Isn't THIS little Retro Travel Trailer the CUTEST?!! We had plans to "fix it up" but never "got around to it" ~ so now someone else will have the pleasure.

Straight from the 60's, it's a one-of-a-kind, cute as can be, & I will miss just :-) LOOKING at it! It makes me SMILE! Not to mention the fact that it was a great ebay storage room on wheels!

Fresh from the Garden......

Nothing better than home grown veggies......

Yum - aren't they pretty?! Fresh summer veggies - just picked from our garden. Last week's first basketful were my very favorite vegetables - yellow squash & green beans ~ Cabo & Cookie love squash too & tried to snatch them right out of the basket!
Yesterday's garden surprises - yellow squash, green beans, potatoes, & onions ~~ And I'm off to the kitchen to cook them for supper......

~~Green Bat House~~

What do you do with leftover tin? If you're TZ, you build a green bat house with a tin roof.
The deck roof is finished so he moved on to other tin roof projects. This is the second bat house he has made. The black one is in our woods.
This one is perched as high as the trees on it's pole awaiting the bats.....we have a couple of bats that fly in around 8:00 in the evening & swoop around our yard......interesting, funny little creatures.....we hope they like their new home ~

~~Floating Fairies~~

The Fairy Rose has bloomed & it's such a sweet, pretty spring surprise with it's tiny, dainty little clusters of pink flowers ~~

Here is today's floating garden ~ there is nothing prettier than colorful petals floating on water.

I had a little fun in the garden today taking one or two little flowers from each plant in my garden & setting them afloat to play amongst each other as a breeze moves them around ~~ I love to do this & I was amazed to find I had such a sampler of blooms plus a couple of favorite leaves.

This is what's blooming in my garden :-)
The Fairy Rose, Katy Road Rose, Geranium, Marigold, Poppy, Larkspur, Dianthus, Pansy, Four O'Clock, Hollyhock, Jasmine, Bachelors Button, Mexican Hat, Petunia, Impatien, Oleander, Lantana, Coreopsis, Columbine, Allysum, Agapanthus, Begonia, Crysanthemum (didn't think those would be blooming now but this one is), Red Yucca, Japanese Maple Leaf, Violet Leaf, Sea Oats Leaf. I know I missed one but can't recall it's name ~

This is a one of a kind with every flower from my garden, but just a few petals is nice in a floating garden so they can really move around ~ forgot to pick the lamb's ear, zinnia, & honeysuckle but I don't think there is room for them!

The Fairies are Afloat!
