My favorite glass bead.

This lampwork glass bead was made by melting several colors in layers and letting it cool slightly before adding more. It is done slowly to prevent each layer from melting into each other.

PURPLE is a pretty color for the fall garden.

Asters attract butterflies

Aster thrives in areas with cool, moist summers. It produces blue, white, or pink flowers in the late summer or fall. Plant height ranges from 8 inches to 8 feet, depending on variety. Tall varieties make good back-of-the-border plants and are also attractive planted in naturalized meadows. Aster is susceptible to powdery mildew and rust diseases, so choose disease-resistant varieties.

Make your garden a reflection of yourself.

I've been putting these LED lights around my flowers in my garden. The best thing about these lights is they are SOLAR powered. They have an on/off mode switch on the solar panel with a choice of steady or flashing. They look beautiful in the evening light. Just put the garden spike into the ground with the solar panel attached and decorate your patio for a fabulous glow.

How is your vegetable garden doing?

Here in PA it has been hot and humid. 
My tomato plants are loving it. 
I'm celebrating with bacon, lettuce and tomato.
