Forgotten Gardens

                                        Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!

                             All the kiddies are back in school and fall is fast approaching......

                                           Guess you are wondering about my heading.....
                                                      forgotten gardens.....

                                           By the time September rolls around I have
                                had enough, tilling and weeding and ...........

                                      Is that true to all or am I the only one
                                          that gets this feeling........





                                          Here is a picture of my roses blooming for the second
                                               time around and they are much healthier looking....

                                                            I followed the instructions that Heather
                                                 at New House New Home gave on pruning them ....





                                                              They are beautiful!

                                                        As I said before don't look at the weeds...
                                                                     



                                                                    My vegetable garden is overgrown......
                                                      Soon all the tomatoes will ripen ....all at once......
                                                                 My zuchini plants produced next to nothing......

                                                                          Never had that problem before....

                                                    The Kale is full and ready to harvest......
                                                             I'll make pesto and freeze it...

                                                                   Harvested 3 large eggplant....WOOO HOOO
                                                                                    never grown this veg before....

                                                     Cucumbers.....now that's a laugh...not one.......?????
                                                                   
                                                               Beets....a full crop....

                                                            My corn is amazing....we don't eat it....it's just for
                                                                           decorating...in the fall......





                                             The sunflower seeds that I planted were for cutting and I did just that
                                                                      and are on display in my living room......

                                                                  Pumpkins....YEH!!! I have pumpkins....now
                                                                            they were slow growers......








                                                                   Let's check out the sunflowers in the fire pit
                                                           you know the ones that the birds planted......

                                                                               WOWZIE!!!!!







                                                                    Huge Heads........

                                                         The birds will have a feast........






                                                           We purchased new upper deck furniture...
                                                                         still on the lookout for a table....
                                                                        thinking of closing in this deck....
                                                                               I'll keep you posted..


                                                       I planted my blue hydrangea in the front garden
                                                               yesterday so that it will get well rooted before
                                                                             the FROST!!!!

                                                                       Now my urn needs to be filled with
                                                                                     fall......

                                                          HMMMMM!!! off to Costco today they have
                                                                             huge Mums ...in all the colours.....

Painting on Screen



                                                   Always wondered how to paint on
                                                                       screen.

                            Last season while out antiquing I picked up these two window  sashes.


                                                            
                                                      


                                 Not sure at the time what I had planned for them
                                        so they sat in my studio till I started decorating
                                                         for Christmas.

                                             on the fields all around you.

                                                         The sounds of the horses whinnying.......

                                      Queensville Antique Mall
                                          16,000 square ft. of
                                              eye popping, mouth watering
                                                              goodness!!


                  Yes we went to one of my favourite haunts......
                                      But this time we took the
                                                car.....

                                    This car......



                                                             our 49 meteor




                   

                                           49 Meteor Deluxe 4 dr


 We usually take the 49 Ford pick up,


 49 Ford




but this time we went for luxury.........lol   This car runs so smooth.

                                        Mr WWH restored this car back in 1979.
                                                     
                                                      Our kids road in the back
                                                                no seat belts......

                                                   It used to put them to sleep.

                        
                                                     We use this car for long distance travelling.

                  I took a few pictures.....sorry I forgot my camera and I'm using my Iphone.

                                                             
                                                        
                                                       Upon entering you see rows and rows of antique
                                                                            goodness.

                                                                    Well I'm on the hunt today for
                                                                                 anything ironstone.

                                                                right under that wooden box....
                                                                         Can you see it.....pottery????
                                                      Oh I like that white chair too, and the piece beside it.
