Hello, dear friends!

I have had a miserable case of the flu and am finally feeling almost human again!!!

There is nothing worse than feeling sick when it is warm and sunny out!!!

Thankfully, I am on the mend and decided to take a stroll in the back yard, just to look at all the lovely growing things and bask in a bit of sunshine.

Looks like someone is spying on me!!!
you want me WHERE?

Meet my sweet next door neighbor, the sweetest orange tabby cat!!

She LOVES to come for a visit and is always seen wandering among my little garden area!!

Isn't she sweet?
I'm busy looking over here!
She does NOT like to look at the camera though!!!
this is the life!

Laying on my old bench, catching some rays!!  Nope, I will NOT say cheese
totally absorbed

She just saw a bird!  Now if I could just get it to fly behind me, she might look this way!!
did she say BIRD?

Maybe not little bird!!
guess I had to humor her!!

Okay, CHEESE!!!

Thank you for cheering me up, sweet kitty!!! 

fuzzy little orb of deliciousness

A few posts back, I mentioned my peach tree and wanted to share what I also spied yesterday......a baby peach!!!!  Can't wait for these!!!

Also, in case you missed it in my last post, I am having a Giveaway for all my followers and hope you will enter!  You can do that  HERE!  Some of you follow via Bloglovin, Blogger, or Email and it can be a bit confusing for me to know who you are if it is just an email address! Or if you are no-reply, I have no way of contacting you!!  Please be sure I know who you are as I don't want to miss anyone!!  If you are not sure about this, please send me an email!!

Lastly, I wanted to share a little "sneak peek" of some new items I will be offering soon!  Perhaps you might "spy" something that tickles your fancy!

handmade garden goodness
 I'm calling these "GARDEN GOODES!"

Be sure to be watching for my update soon!!  I may even have a few more things added!


Thank you for sharing your lovely words of encouragement with me and for following along!!!  I truly appreciate each and every one of you!!!

Wishing you a day filled with sweet delights and unexpected joys you spy along the way~

Hello Julie, so happy to hear your feeling better now.... Love to be out in the garden but still snow here, yuk. What a sweet Kitty you have for a neighbor, so pretty... Have a great day, Hugs Francine.

Orange tabbies are my absolute favourite cats. Sadly, my husband is allergic so no cats for us. We have 2 Boxers instead :)

Love your new items. The carrots are perfect.

Dear Julie...I am sad to hear that you have been unwell, but delighted to know that you are much improved. Warm sunbeams and a visit from a furry-fuzzy neighbour are just the perfect tonic.
Your garden goodes are wonderful! They bring a touch of Springtime to a winter weary soul.
Sending love your way...

What a sweet friend you have. We have a neighborhood tuxedo cat named Bob who visits his close neighbors at lunch time...he's a good size cat! Hope you are feeling lots better...it's not fun to be sick when it is so beautiful out in the sunshine.
Sending a big hug,

You sure got some great pics of your friendly neighbor Julie! Love seeing the sunshine and green. We just got 4-5 inches of snow again last night! Maybe it's the last of it. It will melt fast this time of year tho. Love all your new creations. You've been busy. Will email soon. Glad you are feeling better. Big hugs, Lori

Cute kitty!!! Why do they always turn their head when you want to take a picture??? My dogs do the same thing!
As always your Garden Goodies are beautiful works of art!!! Love those little strawberries!!!
Thanks for sharing!
Hope you have a wonderful Easter!
