Front Garden...Small... But Lush...












  Took these photos last week...
  Wednesday, in fact...
  My front garden is all perennials...
          No grass to cut...
  Only perennials to admire...
  After my tour..
           I needed...
                 A...
                    Butter tart...
  To soothe my soul...
  And cover it in sugary goodness...
  The Moon is from Wednesday...
  Weekend was cloudy at night...
  Hope you all saw it!
             Enjoy your week...


                 Cheers!  :o)

  6. If I live in the town I'd want a front garden that is all plants and no grass ... but alas, living in the country, means big wanna be lawn areas with garden areas plopped here and there. Yummy butter tarts ... can you eat just one???

  7. Lots of beauty in your garden this week. It rained buckets yesterday but not so much today. Rather dark and over-cast though. Butter tarts are one of those things I can only eat one of. Probably best. ;-) My aunt used to make the best I had ever eaten. She actually sold them in a bakeshop along with cream buns. Those are yeast buns filled with a light cream almost like whipped cream. They were very popular and fattening :-o. Hope you have a good week, Linda. Hugs, Deb

    1. We got 4 drops around 4 oclock!!!!
      My planters and pots were all wilted when we got home on Sunday...
      Hope the cottage gets some rain!
      Your Aunt sounds like someone handy to have around! hahaha!

    2. But you didn't leave ANY for me!!! . . . lol

      Hey Linda, not sure whether you have seen my latest reply at my place.
      I've discovered the the Kerr families had their own clan called, yes, the Kerr Clan.
      I've found your tartan just in case you fancy making a kilt but you would need 7 yards of it.
      see website:
      http://www.scotclans.com/scottish_clans/clan_kerr/tartan.html

      Now that research must be worth a Butter Tart.

    3. Yes...next time I defrost one...I'll think of you...as I devour every last morsel!
      My Dad had several Viyella shirts in the plaid...Loved when he wore them!
      ohhhhh...I might cry!

    4. Serve you right for not giving me any Butter Tart . . . .
      But seriously I am touched by your feelings towards your daddy.
      I say daddy because my daughter sent me a Father's Day Card saying, "Anyone can be a Father but it takes someone real special to be a Daddy".
      Now you can excuse me while I cry!! . . . .night!
