Things are breezin right along and summer is here in Florida . . . actually it's been here for some time now. But we actually get to call it summer time with the heat, humidty and bugs. It makes gardening a challenge as you have to get outside early in the morning prepared with bug spray. Evening is now still too hot to garden.
When I'm not out in the garden I'm inside creating new garden whimsies. These are just a couple of my newest designs. I'm finding great "treasures" at the thrift stores and I'm excited to incorporate them into new garden whimsies.
Be sure to check out my Etsy shop to see my full inventory of available garden whimsies.
Another thing I'm excited about is that Garden Whimsies by Mary is now represented by The Artful Giraffe Gallery in Sarasota, Florida. This is an amazing art gallery so if you're in the Tampa/Sarasota area be sure to stop in and tell Michele that Mary sent you.

Anyone else besides me who likes to shop flea markets for garden accents? If this is you you'll want to check out this magazine - Flea Market Gardening Magazine. I'm happy to say the garden totem shown above right is featured in the Summer 2011 issue of Flea Market Gardening.
You can check out their Facebook page for fabulous flea market and thrift store ideas for all that junk . . . I mean "treasures" you collect.
Until next time, have a super fun summer whatever your plans are. I'll be here creating and hope you'll stop back and visit me again soon. Happy gardening to all!!
Each day that we live, He provides for our needs and
gives us the strength of a young eagle.
