Have you found something that we'd never guess what it was? Tell us about it! We'd love to see it! Do show and tell.

The Greater Cincinnati area had rain this weekend...not a lot, we're 5" off.....but the flowers, grass, and plants loved it. Hope your garden got a little precip this weekend. or at least a little reprieve from the heat.
We can't wait for the grand tour of your garden. And, don't forget this party includes showcasing anything with a botanical motif.
