{ Friday Foto Friends }

 Y'all, I need to make an apology to those of you who visit me and leave a sweet comment. I'm the world's worst at visiting but I hope my excuse is a good one. I have difficulty leaving a message from my phone and I don't get on the desktop a great lot. I promise I'll try to do better.....

and at posting on Friday and not Saturday morning.


My little garden plot.
I have several varieties of tomatoes, bell pepper, cukes, and okra....
oh, and flowers coming up along the sides!

These are just the best little cherry tomatoes.
The variety is called Sungold and they're like eating candy. 
I've had 3 so far!

This probably looks like a big mess to some of you, but it makes my heart so happy. I've wanted a potting bench for quite some time. One day I realized that I already had one. This is a baker's rack that was in the kitchen at one time, then served as a shelf on the back it's my potting bench located under the carport and near my little garden. I have access to my garden tools hanging on the rack to the left (found that at Harbor Freight) and my water barrell. Notice the old bushel basket at the bottom that I found in the building at Mom's with my Daddy's name on it...the mailbox was our first one we had when we built our house in 1979 and it holds my gardening gloves.

I love it all!!!

Beautiful lillies....
they're called "garnet" which is my birthstone!

HOPE everybody has a wonderful weekend.


  1. A wonderful post. Serene! 🙂 I like how you reused the bakers' rack.

  2. You fashioned a great potting bench out of what you already had!! Brilliant! I am always happy when a post from you pops into my reader and enjoy visiting you!! Catch up with us when you can, sweet friend!! xo

  3. Perfect use for that baker's rack!! I love it!! I know it will make you happy for many years to come!! Those Garnet Lilies are gorgeous!! Wow!! Don't worry about posting and commenting...we all understand and do the best we can. Sometimes life just gets in the way, but isn't that what we are supposed to be doing? Living life? So no need to apologize. We are in the same boat!
