Elizabeth, you are a member of the fairy group...just go thru the photos and you should have plenty of inspiration.  sounds like you have great ideas...just start and it will come. You will be surprised.

Beth, I feel better now than I have in 6 or 7 years. I've been adding a few things to the perrenials but can never seem to get around to dressing the areas w/the mulch.                                                               Speaking of Gnomes and Fairies I have 2 huge boxes I've collected over the years that I've been sick and now I want to get them out into the garden and I've lost my inspiration about where and how to place them. I wish I had a couple of you girls here to show me how to create what I'm looking for. I want to put it under my Maple tree on the side of my flower garden, I bought 2 Japanese painted ferns to work into the Gnomes somehow, I figured they need some kind of plants in their little village.any suggestions ? all suggestions welcome

Bonnie, the 12 in. stones look real good under the feeder ,must try that. Your squirrel baffle is the same kind of guard we use, it is so funny to watch the squirrels look so puzzled, it sure saves the seeds for the birds.

I like the look Bonnie...however with my birds they still can scatter the seeds to kingdom come!!! not to mention the squirrels.  But it does look nice.

thanks Elizabeth...yes it is wonderful to be able to get back down on the ground....working on some fairy and gnome gardens which does require "getting down"...being careful still as it takes a while for everything to heal.  Both hips done now and feel like new.

Here is how the feeders with the patio block look

We put 12 inch patio stone down under our feeder post and it cleans up wonderfully easy.  Plus it looks nice.

'Pearches and Dreams' Hollyhock

"Linda, this hollyhock barely escaped the clutches of the groundhog. We have a chicken wire cage around it and he knocked it over and ate all of the leaves on the bottom of the plant. Fortunately, it bounced back and is blooming beautifully."

Pink Phlox

"Thanks Linda. Our phlox has just started to bloom, which is great because the daylilies and other blooms are starting to wind down. Have yours been blooming for a while?"

Cleome (Spider Flower)

"Linda, you should grow these! The deer, rabbits and groundhog won't touch them. They self-seed like crazy, so once you grow them, they usually come back from the seed the next year."
