So um, you know that Garden party that I host here every other Wednesday?
It was supposed to have happened last week.
But it didn’t. Because like dummy I completely forgot to post it last Wednesday. Whoopsie-daisies. By the time I remembered it it was sometime around Memorial Day and by then you’d probably forgotten about it too.
So sorry about that if you were waiting for it! We will now resume our regularly scheduled programming.
Remember how I promised I’d donate a dollar for every entry at the last Garden Party? Well, we got 10 entries, so that’s $10 toward Alabama Tornado Recovery and Relief. When I combine that with the $85 that I received from the very generous Kim at NewlyWoodwards for winning the auction for the succulent wreath along with the $40 that I’ve raised via the Amazon.com affiliate link for the wish list, that totals up to be $135.00 to be donated to the Christian Service Mission!! YAHOO!!! I’m VERY excited to share this news with you guys! THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the link party, who bid on the auction, who donated to the Amazon Wishlist, who contributed to help my wonderful state recover from the storms. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!
Be sure to check out all the great auction items that are ending today over on the Restore Alabama website! There are some incredible steals on there just waiting to be sniped. Get ’em quick!
Ok, time for the Garden Party!
Here are some of the posts that really caught my eye at the last party:
David Austin Roses from A Nest for All Seasons How jaw-droppingly beautiful are these flowers? I would love to see those growing in my yard, but roses and I don’t get along very well. I’ll just admire Amy’s from the safety of my thorn and disease-free laptop.
I am definitely going to whip up a batch of Gardeners Hand Scrub from Northern Cottage! This looks so simple, and what a great gift idea it could be! I love her beautiful packaging, too. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
Finally please go check out the beautiful blog of Alicia’s Gourmet Gardens. This lady has drive and determination to start her own organic farm. Rock on! She shared a post about a handy tool called a soil blocker that replaces the need for cell trays when starting seedlings. Very cool idea. I might need one of those weed-whacker things from her most recent post, too.

All righty, ladies and gents. Let’s see what you have to share with us this week!
I would REALLY appreciate it if you’d add this button to your blog entry or side bar so that other folks can join in the party, too. Thanks so much for spreading the word!
Here’s how it works:
1. In the McLinky below, add a permalink to your specific blog post, not the main page of your blog.
2. Please add a Garden Party button or a link to this garden party directly from your post so others can join in on the fun! You can grab the code in the box above.
