I've Been To Gardens All Around The World This Week....

On Flickr!

Good Morning Dear Blogging Buddies~

This week I decided to take a trip to Flickrland , and do a search for "cherub fountains". ( and no jet lag, either!)

Well once again, my Flickr friends did not let me down. I was so inspired that I had to do a mosaic with all of the beautiful fountains I found. Aren't they just dreamy? There is something so ethereal and inspiring about moss covered statuary. Can't you just hear the trickling of the water and smell the of the mist it emits? So peaceful and relaxing....

Keeping that inspiration in mind, I have decided to post a few pictures of my own garden from last year. I am so anxious to get my little garden oasis underway, and persue a few projects that I have accumulated over the winter, but for now I will have to settle for pictures and dream of what will be!

Here's hoping you have a blessed and beautiful day.

Oh how beautiful. I would love to get a fountain of some kind when we do our little patio this summer. Don't you just love all the pics on Flickr. I was so happy to see you posted today. I've missed you. Have a wonderful day!

Oh how I love fountains and flowers and gardens, OH MY. I've been in my yard, playing, for the last two weeks. I, of course had to get my camera and try to capture the moment. These are wonderful pictures, next time I want to go. RoseMarie

I love cherubs, and fountains. We have a garden pond with koi and are just getting it ready for spring. One of those fountains would look awesome there.

Ruth, this is a lousy way to come out of lurkdom but I wanted to alert you that someone with the screen name "cookycrazy" on Rate My Space has posted a couple photos of your beautiful bedroom claiming it is theirs! I will give you an opportunity to deal with it, but in case you do not get this message right away, I will confront the person on your behalf in a couple hours. It appears to be a kid but, nevertheless, it is shameful and I feel they should be educated that they can't get away with such deception!

(aka "susiehomemaker" on RMS)

Irma's Rose Cottage said...

What lovely garden pictures. I hope to get a fountain one day.
Thanks for sharing.


Shari said...

Apparently Cookycrazy deleted her (your) space, and rightfully so, but I saved the link:

Since I wasn't sure how soon you would get my message, I hope you don't mind that I went ahead and confronted her (as you can see) rather than let her continue to mislead people. It just made me livid!

Surprisingly, she even apologized to you on your bedroom space, although I highly doubt using your photos was an "accident", as she claimed. your blog and home!

Hi Shari~
Thanks so much for being such a great RMS friend. It is sad when people have to resort to such deceit to boost their ego. I TRULY feel sorry for cookycrazy, though.
I left her a message, but also let her know that I forgive her.
Thanks for taking the time to let me know and visiting my blog and RMS. I have been SOOO bad about posting lately but I will get back in the swing of things soon...Spring is here, and there are so many pix to be taken!
Your rooms on RMS look great too!!!
You should start a's fun!!! Again, my deepest regards and gratitude~~~
