Welcome to the Summer Garden Tour...somewhere in Pennsylvania

Welcome to Thistle Patch Hill.......






(Sometimes even the weeds pay a visit, though uninvited.)












Can you see why we chose the name THISTLE PATCH? We play a sort of "Where's Waldo?" game with it.


























Now head on over to Tracey's Garden Tour for more gardens!

Hi Sue.....I really enjoyed your garden tour this morning. I love all the reds you have and you look so ready for 4th of July! Love your "scarecrow" too...I used to have one of those and yours makes me want to have another one. I called her my "Garden Girl".

Have a nice day!
Debbie

Hi Sue, thanks for visiting my blog. Your garden is lovely. I have exactly the same problem with weeds growing up through the slabs. Although not all yours are weeds, can I see lots of lovely violets growing there as well? I shall look forward to paying your blog a visit for inspiration for my garden. x
