Great Time in the Garden and a Great Stuff Giveaway!

I absolutely love summer and working in the yard.

 We built this pond four summers ago.  The fish are getting huge and the plants are thriving.
Several birds are making their homes in my birdhouses.
There are three different birds checking out this house.  It looks like the one on the bottom right has already moved in!

There are several babies in this house.  The parent sitting here is very, very attentive and goes crazy if anything or anyone gets close.

I found this ladder last year for $2.  We built the flower boxes and added drippers for water.  The daylilies and coneflowers are some of my favorites.  The rose of Sharon to the right of the ladder hasn't started blooming yet.
What are your favorite flowers?

Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home


  1. I love all your stuff. You and your husband are so talented and create the most beautiful things. always makes me smile to see what you are up to!

  2. Your gardens are beautiful. I could watch the birds come and go for hours.

  3. Good Afternoon Pam, I really love your pond, to watch the fish swimming and to listen to the trickle of the water must be very soothing.
    How marvellous to have so many birds living in your birdhouse and the hours of fun you must get from seeing the birds grow and learning to fly.
    I love gardening and there are many flowers I love, but I think without doubt, my favourite is the rose. There is nothing like walking into the garden, in the evening, to find the air filled with heady perfume coming from the roses.... just lovely.
    Best Wishes to you,

  4. Lovely bird houses. And thanks for recommending the Great Stuff pest block. We've been looking for a good bug solution.

  5. Love your backyard and gardens Pam! And the birdhouses! Looks so beautiful!

  6. Hello Pam!
    Your gardens are so Beautiful! Love the ladder with the Birdhouses. How cool is that!
    I could use all these products. I have gaps around my pipes and windows in the garage and basement. That Pest Block is also something I could use! Never heard of these products before. Thanks for the chance to win!

  7. The only ladder I ever saw at an antique store was $800 and you find one for $2. Live isn't fair!

  8. Garage sales are marvelous, you can get some fabulous deals there.

  9. Hi, Pam.
    I'm new to following a blog, but I saw your ladder with bird houses and flower containers and fell in love! So, now I am a fan, lol.
    I would use the Gaps and Cracks on the cracks left in my foundation by a tornado that hit in 2006...but I think I would like to try it on some of my favorite decorated flower pots, too. The Work Wipes? I don't know about you, but I can really get grimy working in my yard and garden I would put those to good use on me! Of course, the Pest Block would come in handy, too. I live on a mountaintop in the middle of the Mark Twain National am surrounded by nature, at her best and at her worse! Lots of pests, which may be great for the garden, but not so good in my thick hair and in my eyes and crawling all over me! Yep, I would certainly use that.
    I really love what I see on your site, so far...and am glad I found it. Thank you for all that you so and share.

  10. I been following your blog forever and love it :)I would use it in my home ! Hate pests ! :)

  11. Hi Pam~
    Beautiful garden I must say, one of the prettiest I think I have ever seen. Your ladder is to die for! I would use all three of these products in trying to keep bees and wasps nests at bay. Plus,I too have a leaky faucet outside and the wipes I would use on myself as I get pretty dirty working in my garden. Thank you so much for your give a way

  12. Great gardening tips. I will surely try them.

  13. I did not know until just now that there was a Great Stuff Pest Block. I've used Great Stuff for a lot of things, but now I have more uses! water damage Dallas TX

  14. That ladder with the birdhouses and planters is something I've always wanted to do...
    years ago..I had some ladders perfect for this type project, but the ravages of time and carpenter ants, yeah, ...they ate my ladders!
    Pretty cone flowers.

  15. You built the pond?! I don't know why I am surprised, you do some amazing things! Love your bird house too. I've never used any of these products, thanks for the chance to win.
    Thanks also so much for sharing at Amaze Me Monday!!!

  16. My favorite time of the year is summer. I have bucket gardens on my deck and a birdhouse right next to it. I sit quietly and watch the flowers grow, the bees buzz and the birds fly. A pond would be amazing!

  17. Your garden is just beautiful! I love the pond! And the birds and fish really make it come to life, don't you think!

  18. Your garden is so lovely. I had to smile when I saw the purple coneflowers. They are one of my favorite flowers.
