This brillant red and coral shade of geranium attracts little hummingbirds. They will be out by the geranium early in the morning! So cute!

The Grand Marais Garden Tour is fast approaching, June 25th. which falls on a Saturday to be exact. Such beautiful gardens to see in Grand Marais! This event in town is always well attended and a great event to get out and see the talented gardeners of Grand Marais.
We do not have a garden anything quite as elaborate as many but, we do have a cactus and succulent collection and some beautiful geraniums and some bright golden strawflowers.
This year we are holding a raffle at The Crystal Pinecone gift shoppe. It measures just under 12" tall. A $10.00 purchase at the shoppe enters you into the drawing for this adorable garden piggy!

Under the Dragon

Under this blue crushed velvet dragon is the portable sewing machine I received for a Christmas gift this past year. This sewing machine cover is my first larger project using the new machine. What a great little sewing machine.....I just love it!

A Summertime Pick

This beaded necklace is like colorful flowers picked from a garden in summertime. Different shades of pink, yellow and a shade of light tangerine color are in this bouquet! Accents of metal filagree copper beads and an amber shade of crystal beads make up the strand that goes around the neck. The total measurement is 15 and 1/2".
