Publishing a book is so exciting! Two friends have recently published books that I would love to share.

(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!

I love this picture of my dad- taken about 50 years ago. He looks pretty cool, don't you think!
Dad is someone I admire for all he has accomplished in his life. He has overcome obstacles along his way with a great deal of determination. I am so proud of him and love him so much. I am so thankful that he is well once again!

It is so wonderful how the Lord plans surprises in our days. He gave us a great one on vacation. A fisherman walked by as we were sitting on the beach. Tom said, "Hey Mom, isn't that Ray." Knowing he was on vacation that week and assuming he had gone out of town, I said, "No, doesn't look like him." Joe walked down to the water and the fisherman approached him. It was Ray! A dear friend for more than 30 years. What a delight to spend the evening with him!! It truly was a gift perfectly timed by our Father!
We hated to leave Cape May but it is also good to be home. It is the first time we have returned from vacation to plants that are still green and growing- thanks to our faithful waterers! I missed my peonies and small iris in bloom but came home to lots of roses....and weeds! There is a reason I call my blog Thistlepatch Hill!
My husband knows me through and through. While on a bike ride through Cape May Point he found a bucket just like the one at the right sitting in someone's garbage. He rescued it for me! I can't wait to plant it and add it to the others that I have throughout the yard.
I've gotta get things in shape for Tracey's Garden Tour.
