Blogiversary Week, Day 8 - The Finale

 We've covered a lot of my garden so far... from the start in February and planting seeds inside my house, to the spring and seeds in the greenhouse, to the vegetable plot and the gardens we went.  We watered and nurtured the little seedlings, that grew into plants.  Some for their beauty and some for their fruit.  The sky went from gray, to pale blue, to the truest clear sky blue.















The days grew balmy, then hot, then cooler again.  Another garden season from beginning to end.



For the final day...



















something to hold it all.  A little burlap bag, complete with my addition of a little fabric flower.  You can hold your garden magazines, your new garden journal... and think of me, at Red Gate Farm.

Thank you friends, for stopping by... the winner will be announced tomorrow, Tuesday February 1st!

  9. We in line for a blizzard tonight. We've battened down the hatches and are going to enjoy a day or so of being *snowed in*. Between the shoveling, I plan to enjoy sipping coffee and stitching and dreaming of spring and starting seeds. Thank you for the opportunity to get to know you and your gardens better and the chance to win this lovely giveaway. A burlap bag is the PERFECT final addition to this giveaway :)

    Blessings to you!
