Favorite things Friday!

These are a few of my favorite things...from around the place where I live :) 
Me and the love of my life ...together and smiling! 

My blue bottle tree garden .....weeds and all...

My drive way flower bed.....the good side that faces the street....we won't be showing the bad side that doesn't get the TLC it needs :( 

My home where I live and love!

The butterflies that abound in our yard and gardens :) 

The wild blackberries that grow out back and are just starting to get ripe. I see cobbler in the very near future !!

An abundance of jewel weed that  grows wild everywhere in our woods. I love to make soap out of it for poison ivy...which also grows everywhere in our woods :( 

Tomatoes that are growing like crazy and should have a few ripe ones very soon :) !!!!!

My bog garden with its elephant ears and canas that thrive in the wet clay there :) 

My veggie garden which isn't as big as I hoped this year but still gives me yummy food for the tummy :) 

One of my shade gardens with it's wooden mushroom and little glass cat figurine. 

I could go on forever but I'll stop here...
Hope you all have a great weekend! 
Stop and think about all the favorite things you have right at your doorstep :)

  3. Glad it is working out for you Carol! You deserve it!
