Summer Blooms #5 - Winner of Blog Giveaway Is.........

Take time to do what makes you happy. Perhaps rest and relaxation. We enjoyed the last long holiday weekend of summer at our camp with family and friends. Everything has bloomed that will bloom in 2019, and our travels have come to an end for the year so we can now enjoy evenings dining alfresco, watching the grasshoppers, butterflies, bees, and caterpillars. I have thoroughly enjoyed my garden this year, and a huge thanks to Mr. Mountain Breaths who has kept a close eye on watering the garden. His first year of retirement has been good to him, and I can't tell you how happy he is to not have to go to school today :-) :-) 

The winner of the MacKenzie-Childs Whisk is..............

    Debbie, your garden glamour shots are pretty! Love that MKC garden spike/globe thingy too. I was just thinking how nice your life is already with Joe retired. Just think how it will be once you retire too!

  3. Congratulations to Cheri! She'll be whisking up a storm with that adorable kitchen tool. Your garden pics are outstanding, my friend, and kudos to Joe for his wonderful job of watering all those pretty blossoms. I love the addition of your whimsy in the garden, too.

  4. Congrats to Cheri. I know she will love her new MKC whisk. You have had a busy year. So glad Joe can enjoy retirement. The flowers look lovely. You have captured some stunning shots. The new garden globe looks perfect.

  5. I am soooooooo thrilled to be the winner! THANK YOU SO MUCH. Life is still filled with sweet surprises...and I do love me some surprises:)

  6. I just checked my email and the one I sent you with my address seems to have bounced back. It said I had been blocked. I will try again.
