I, Sweet William The Scot, have had to stay on the porch or inside all week.
Communities on the east side of Cincinnati have had a black bear running around. It swam over the Ohio River and we sure hope it swims back to Kentucky soon.
Why look at this large pigs ear, my first pigs ear ever. Lee was in Amish Country in Adams County and got this for me because it was just freshly baked. No Preservatives! No Additives!
Now while I chew on my treat you enjoy the pictures I took while on the Garden Tour in my Community.
This is a wonderful dappled shade garden.
It is a fairy garden with castle.
Wonder who lives in this tree stump house.
Over 600 Hostas and 50 varieties of ferns in this whimsical setting.
Over two hundred cats made of wood, stone, metal and fabric throughout the garden.
Why look they are having a tea party.
This is the second garden.
It has shrubs, dwarf conifers and perennials.
Lee loves the way the side of this shed opened up to shelves.
This is the third garden and the newest. Oh look at the gazebo, we would love to have a gazebo.
This garden is an eclectic mix of a formal and cottage garden.
This home's garden was the fourth we toured. It is an early 1800's farm home and the gardens evolved slowly. Over three acres of garden, lawn and woods. It has a half acre pond, weeping willows. The old hollyhocks were not in bloom yet.
It was a mile hike back to this home and another mile back to our car. No wonder they fed us a hot dog and a giant cookie and gave us a water bottle. So after four homes and the time spent at these four homes wondering through the gardens we never made it to the last four.
But I am glad you joined me for the tour.
I have more to tell you about my Nati City next time.
Have a great week!
Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine
