DSO celebrated a milestone birthday this week. A (not quite) surprise party was thrown. He knew something was up, but a friend of mine totally blew it just before the party was to start.
I bought this wonderful birdbath at an antique shop that is going out of business. Though not old, I fell in love with it and bought it. Then it dawned on me that it is concrete and weighs a ton. I was almost afraid to tell DSO about it, but he was such a sport. Thankfully there was a guy at the shop to help him load it and when we got to my house, he had a ramp system that made it so easy to put in place. It is never going to move :) I look forward to next year when the hostas and ferns will mature.
I've purchased a few of these concrete leaves as gifts over the years, but never had one for myself. I found this at a sale a few weeks ago.
The clematis were beautiful this year.
These hosta were gorgeous ~ until yesterday when the deer discovered them. ARGH! I found a recipe for homemade deer repellant (eggs, hot sauce and garlic powder). Even though it is supposed to sit for 24 hours to get really stinky, I applied immediately. I will make another batch and hopefully the deer will not bother them any more. I live in the city but with woods nearby, and the deer are a real problem.

Not sure what this is and haven't done a search. Sure hope it's nothing bad. Anyone know?
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
