Mourning Dove Cottage

I'd like to share with you something very special that Mourning Dove Cottage received in the mail yesterday.

My sweet blogging friend, Deb, from posted from home, sent me a beautiful handmade card with the letters MDC, for Mourning Dove Cottage, and a photo of a baby dove on the front ~ this dove, by the way, is one of her dove babies. How cute!

Enclosed in the card was an article she clipped from a Mary Engelbreit magazine about a beautiful home and garden called Dove Cottage. The article is filled with lovely garden pictures of an enchanting naturescape, herb and flower gardens, and a charming farmhouse built in the 1850's.

Thank you, Deb, for thinking of Mourning Dove Cottage! I've already found some wonderful ideas in the article that I'd like to incorporate in my garden.

How beautiful a day can be

When kindness touches it!

I wanted to mention that the 4th of July event at Brier Creek was loads of fun and a very successful day. The fireworks were fantastic!

Isn't that Deb the sweetest?! What a wonderful gift, and it is one that will keep on giving as you incorporate some of the ideas.

I'm glad the show was a great one.
