The Sunday Stroll around the gardens

My banana tree is getting huge!

My backyard garden is doing so much better since John mulched it. It holds the moisture in much longer than no mulch at all. John will be walking Jenny around this garden to get to the patio next Saturday for her "home" wedding. The top picture is my coleus. I have about 4 different colors and textures, but I thought these looked beautiful! The Japanese Painted Ferns are doing just great this year, even with the drought conditions. The banana tree is up to the second floor-it just keeps growing and growing! Kind of the Jack and the Beanstalk route!! Just thought I'd share my yard with y'all!


  1. The coleus is so pretty and the mulch looks great. Now lets see a pic of your new wheels!

  2. Lovely Sherri, that Coleus is fab!

  3. Mary, the new wheels pic is below this post.

  4. Sherri,
    Your gardens are gorgeous! Nice car, enjoy! I'm a Camry gal and like this years model!

    *I've tagged you for a meme. It's my first so check it out on my blog.

  5. Your garden is just gorgeous, Sherri!

  6. Beauty! The wedding will be fab out there in the lovely garden.

  7. The fern is gorgeous. I love ferns.

    Oh, and I love your new ride. How is it so far? I'm thinking that will be my next car.

  8. Marnie, I love the new Camry! One of my boss' has Lexus sedan and it looks just like the Camry except for the grill and it is a whole lot cheaper!!


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.

Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!

Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
