RE: morning/weather/gardening

Well, if anyone objects, Ceres, there are other directions they can look.  

I don't stop gardening just because a neighbor has a party around here.  I
also don't apologize for my attire when I garden.  We'd all look pretty
silly dressed up in heels and skirts while we dig and pull and
prune--especially Jim.  (Just kidding, Jim.)  

Don't let their party schedule intimidate you the least.  From the sounds of
it, your neighbors/friends have said the same thing themselves. :>D
Graciously take them at their word.  And their landscape architect probably
refers to your gardens as "borrowed landscape" as in not owned but open to
view for their use as well as yours.  That is a great compliment to your
efforts.  Take a bow!  Maybe they'll let you borrow their patio for a party
or two since they are borrowing your view?  (Never hurts to ask.  LOL!!!)

Oh, and it sounds like you may have some help in the future from your
friendly neighbors in taking care of your garden in the future, if you can
train them!  What a blessings to have good neighbors. :>D

Yes, Kitty, you are right.  We looked for a number of years to find the
acreage but did not find it.  The second choice to more outdoor gardening 
space was the garden room which we added.  I have not looked since. Now we
are to 
old to make that move again and start from scratch.
    My neighbors just added a huge addition to their already sizeable home, 
now about 5000 sqft.  They also moved their patio to our side of their home 
because of my gardens.  Their landscape architect told them you can not put
value on the importance my garden is to their design.  BTW, they added a
beautiful curved brick patio.  I love them, they are like our kids and their

daughter like a granddaughter but I do have concerns because they like to 
entertain outdoors on the patio & gazebo area and I work in the garden many
times til 
dark.  This was not a problem when their patio was on the reverse side of 
their home and their sunroom extended btwn the patio & my garden. I feel
like I 
cannot do that now if they are entertaining as the patio extents out from
home near our lot line.  I have mentioned this to them and they assured me I

should not chg my gardening schedule but I, like Pam says, dress poorly when
am gardening. I always work standing, bent over.  Beautiful scene from their

patio, huh?  Spring will tell.
