A Little Green Thumb Gardening

My daughter thinks I have a green thumb.  So, last month she got her father and I to come visit to help with their yard.  We placed some plants in this cute little area off her kitchen door and placed little saucers in the dirt for edging.  I love her rooster dinner bell!

The wagon wheel was already there and will look great as a backdrop to the flowers.

Last year I painted these chairs for their porch and made them some pillows from an old tablecloth.  Amber and I planted some ferns behind them that we took from our garden.

Amber and Scott love to visit wineriers and have edged a few of their flower beds with wine bottles.
The guys were busy building this raised box for their vegetables.

The house number sign that I made as part of their wedding gift was placed by the front door.

Amber and I got busy planting and mulching everything.

Looks to me like someone else is developing a very green thumb!
