When I have a chance I am going to buy a Sweet Bay Magnolia.

My neighbor Lynda has three of them and the flowers have a very unusual heavenly smell.

After a few months of looking at all the leaves bunched up between my perrenials and flowering shrubs I finally got out there and cleaned them up. My back is really sore today.

I'm really needing to get into my garden too but sadly I need to get someone to help me. At the moment I do have someone cutting the lawn for me and that helps to make it look a bit tidier, but doesnt know much about plants the last time he tidied up the borders I lost quite a few nice flowers because he thought they were weeds. What I do need is to find a 'gardener' who knows about plants but meantime I try to do just a little now and then to keep on top of things. My tomato and cucumber plants are coming on well though.

Then you can sit under it and drink bourbon and branch like Grace Kelley!

My dear friend Barb gave me an unusual fern and a plant called a pineapple sage. When you rub the leaves it smells just like pineapple. I planted it in my atrium so it's protected.

This year I emptied the two large pots by my front door of the draecenas that I had growing in them for over ten years. I replaced them with yellow rose bushes. They are beautiful by the deer love to eat the rose buds.

My friend Barb mists her plants leaves with water then sprinkles cayenne pepper on the leaves. She said she heard the deer nearly knocking over the bird baths to slurp up the water! Very Happy
