Sassy Sally!

I call this little doll Sassy Sally because she has a little bit of an attitude, hence her little quirky smile. It was a bit difficult to photograph her in the garden as we have had copious amounts of rain. This weekend looks like it will be quite a bit better, in the low seventies believe it or not. I can almost hear the plants and grass growing! I visited one of my favorite garden nurseries a couple of days ago and saw this lovely garden man. He looks very laid back and comfortable don't you think! I was thinking the other day about all the things that we have added to our little garden over the years. If I had to do it all over again our little pond would be one of the first things I would put in again. It has given us so much enjoyment seeing all the wildlife that use it on a daily basis. It also attracts a lot of birds that probably would not come into our garden. So I would say that it is my most favorite thing in the garden. If some of you are thinking about adding a little pond, I would highly recommend it. It will give you lots of smiles.

Hi Kathy, thanks for wondering about me, just got a bit of the black dog, thankfully he has gone for a walk and hopefully got himself lost!

Love Sassy Sally, and I love the story of the hedgehog. I know what you mean about Martha, but I must admit I do watch her podcasts on my ipod. I find it fascinating that she seems so perfect, and of course we have no one like that in the UK.

Oh, I love Sally! She really does have attitude, right? Love also those photos of your pond. It's always great to see what has dropped into your garden to say hello!

We loved the pond we had at our old house and are planning one here, too. I just wonder if my dogs will think it's a doggy swimming pool.

I am playing catchup on your blog. Happy belated Mothers Day - Sassy Sally is precious. We welcomed a new grandson last Friday so I have fallen behind here on the homefront! There is no place like home and it feels good to be back - even if it is 91 degrees today!

Sassy Sally looks like she could do a great job as my alter ego, Sassy Ally. Love her smile, so cheeky and suggestive of a girlwho knows how to have fun and be just a little bit naughty.

Sassy Sally is great--I love a little bit of attitude every now and again! I wish there was some way to see your entire garden all at once in a picture. You seem to have so many little nooks and crannies--I wish I had more of a green thumb!
