Featured Cupcake Sampler this week! Denise Marzec blogs at The Paper Landscaper

Every morning in the summer I love walking downstairs when I get up and see my plants on the deck. It just really makes my day. Something about how they look in the morning light..that is just so pretty. It's been really hot the past few weeks and the heat is taking its toll on some of them..but these are still doing really well.

I she the grasshoppers are munching on them. The little stinkers.

I'm learning , living out here in the country.... to plant sturdy things..because between the wind, (and the storms .. this year especially), the sun and the's hard on them, especially as the summer gets hotter and dryer.


I wanted to share with you this gorgeous project on my friend Rose's blog. Simply Rose
Isn't that beautiful!!
