nuntium centesimum quinquagesimum quartum - surprise!

Imagine my surprise yesterday when there were two women intently gazing at my front garden.  They had clipboards and were conferring seriously.  My courageous husband (on the scaffolding again) finally asked them what they were doing.


Apparently one of my neighbors or nearby nominated our front garden!  I was SO surprised.  We garden and enjoy it but are rank amateurs for sure.  But I'm thrilled that someone enjoys it enough to nominate us.

Here are some pictures that younger daughter took for me this morning.

And I got three motifs done for the Quatrain last night too!


  1. Wow! Looks beautiful! Younger daughter takes awesome photos, too! Congrats on the well-deserved nomination :)

  2. Congrutlations for being nominated, well done those are some beautiful pictures, I hope you win

  3. What a lovely surprise to be nominated like that! Your garden is so wonderfully colourful. Clearly it attracts the attention of the neighbours for all the right reasons.

  4. What an honor just to be nominated. From the pictures of all the lovely flowers I would say it is well deserved. You must have quite the flower garden.

  5. Judging for your daughter's pictures, I would have nominated your garden, too! Big question... do you have threads to match all those beautiful flowers? I can imagine a gorgeous tatted bouquet!


gratias maximas- it's wonderful to hear what you have to say!
