Spring into Summer in the Secret Garden!

My computer is heating up and shutting down 
or just freezing on "suspended stun"a lot
which is what always happens
when it's ready to crash so I'm sending it out

and shall be leaving for a bit....
....taking a break....
 for the Secret Garden calls and beckons me

Won't you please join me in a walk around the garden?


Mr. Stubbs enjoyes blending in!

The snow lingered waaay to long
so there is much to do and catch up with

Life is good and I am so very BLESSED!!


Beloved, I wish above all things
that thou mayest prosper
and be in health,
even as thy soul prospereth.

Here is a brick path that was hidden under 
the lawn! A lot of happy work to reveal it again!

adding stones gathered from around the property

a new walkway..

You mustn't be frightened of  the snakes
that are here,
they are quiet and gentle!! 

(I must say that I quite enjoy their company)!!




 Hope you enjoyed...
See you in a while...
(I will visit on my Kindle as soon as I get it back,
it's out on borrow)
 Love Linnie and the Mousiekins
and Doggies


  1. Linnie, Please touch bases when you are able. I enjoyed the tour of your beautiful gardens.
    God Bless,


  2. Linnie, I had not seen the outside of your house before. I love the old brick! And you have so many lovely architectural elements in your garden--the brickwork, wrought iron, dry stone walls, and so on. The flowers are all the kind I love, too. Are you way out in the country where it is quiet? I can see why you feel blessed.

  3. Oooh ... nice! That brick walkway was buried treasure, indeed; lovely. Hope to see you back shortly.

  4. Oh my, Linnie your garden is just lovely. I cannot bare the sight of snakes though, any snakes. I have a phobia.....eeek, but now your doggies and mousiekin family , they are always a sight to behold. Love, love them. My pc needs to take a trip to the hospital as well. I use my tablet mostly these days. Your home is just lovely my dear. Enjoy your outdoor work, but be careful and don't over do. Blessings to you and your....hugs, Shelley

  5. Just beautiful. :) enjoy your time in the garden. Mari

  6. So much to see that I will be returning to take another stroll. Everything looks so healthy and strong...hope that the hive is doing well, too.

  7. I love the brick path Linnie, how wonderful to find it.
    Your garden is so pretty & your home too, I love to see the old bricks of the chimney.
    I so enjoyed my visit.
    Fondly Michelle

  8. My beloved friend, HELLO! Now that was an invigorating walk with you in the most enchanting garden! Did I see forget-me-nots? Did I see the MOUSEKINS and their tractor, bulldozing the land to make way for crops or a paved patio?teeeheheheheee

    IT WAS FABULOUS and I wish you a peaceful break my dearest. I am still in school until May 29 then we are off to a small vacation. I hope to post a blog post in June, but I am enjoying Instagram now.

    Blessings to you and the entire group of beloved creatures! Anita

  9. Linnie, I was a delight to stroll the garden with you, I especially liked walking on the newly uncovered brick path. Everything is coming to life! I just discovered May apples; never knew what they were until yesterday, and I see you have some! Good luck with the computer, our is beginning to take a nose dive as well.

  10. Dear Linnie,

    My, you could charge admission for folks to come into your botanical sanctuary! That buried pathway is amazing; who would cover that with grass?

    I do snakes, as well. There is a log in my front yard that has a hollow on the underside just perfect for two or three garter snakes to cozy up in.



    p.s. I hope your computer will stay working for you soon!

  11. How I loved those perfect little blue EGGS, LINNIE!!!!!!

    Dearest, I am so busy with school that my head is spinning! I just saw your dear comment on my blog and I thank you so much for such a compliment; I would LOVE to work in the magazine industry or somewhere where I can create beauty in print. You never, ever know.

    I truly cherish that comment. OH! I hear the birds singing; it's 5:30am and this is my favorite time of the day. I hope you are enjoying God's great creation today! MUCH LOVE! Anita

  12. What a delightful discovery that brick path must have been for you,
    Linnie...and what a delight for
    kindred spirits to walk your lovely garden with you. I could
    hear the buzzing bees and feel the warm sun on my shoulders.... Tasha would be proud of what you have wrought.....indeed...

  13. How I enjoyed this walk around your garden. It's really amazing with all the different plants you have. And the flowers are beautiful.

  15. Thank you Linnie, I enjoyed every bit of my walk except for the snakes.. I don't like them.. they make me I think because when we went blackberry picking the rattlers were all over the place..and I was young and it scared me to death.. Happy Sunday with love Janice

  19. Oh that photo of the ants doing their magic of opening up, petal by petal, those peonies! MAGIC IN YOUR GARDEN! And, seeing your blog comment was a magical moment as well. Thank you so much for the heart-felt welcome back my dear friend! And Tea Rat is working on a little sailboat. We are all too excited about this little thing, that will sit on my mantel all summer to remind me of the sea (to where I am going in a few days!!!!!!)

    Big hugs to you dearest Linnie! Anita
