How to get rid of Gophers in one easy step!

Thought I would give an update from my last garden post on how I fixed my gopher problem in my grass. Every morning I would wake up to huge piles of dirt all over my beautiful lawn.
Its a very inexpensive way of getting rid of gophers in your grass!

They can't Swim!!!

I was so frustrated one morning that I grabbed the hose and stuffed it down every hole and ran it for about 15 minutes. Whoa-la.....they are gone!

The grass is now starting to fill back in!

Bloomin' Tuesday

I am joining Jean over at Ms Green Thumb Jean's Blog and posting what is blooming in my garden today!
Old wheel barrels make great garden pots and decoration!
This is my latest addition to my garden. Its an old washing machine I picked it up at an antique shop. It was sitting out back behind their shop and I had a vision when I laid eyes on it! My husband didn't have the same vision when I saw it but he has changed his mind now since it has found a new home!
I love geraniums. I have several colors throughout my garden, however, I love this shade of pink flowers. It grows into a huge bush just full of flowers.
I love this rose bush. It is called St Patricks. It is always full of blooms early in March for St Patricks day and it keeps blooming during the summer through fall. Right now it has about 18 flowers on it. It is a beautiful color yellow!

I don't know why but you cannot buy a Hollyhock plant at any of the nurseries near me. I bought 6 little plants through mail order. My gardener thought they were weeds and pulled up all but one of them. (I guess he never saw a Hollyhock plant before) Any ways, this is my only plant and I was so excited that it finally bloomed this year.
I looked at this head I have hanging on my fence and I noticed all the sticks hanging out the side of it, I went and investigated. I don't know who got more scared, the 5 little birdies that flew out of it or ME!
My pink Hydrangeas are blooming . Since I have so many plants, I love to pick them and have them in a vase in my kitchen.
I HATE gophers! Anyone have a good suggestion on how I can get rid of them. I tried the trap but it keeps pushing it out of the hole! It needs to DIE or relocate! I woke up this morning to these huge dirt piles all over my lawn!

Pink Saturday

Today is PINK Saturday, be sure to go visit our hostess, Ms Beverly, at How Sweet the Sound for more lovely Pink Saturday posts!

I acquired more pretty lady planters recently. These are from the 40s and 50s. I will show pictures of only the pink ones.

This one my Mom gave me. She has had it since I was a little girl. I was never allowed to touch it. Maybe that's why its in such good shape now.

I think my favorite part about them is all the detail in their sweet little faces!

Thanks for visiting me today!
Hugs, Anne Fannie

Pink Saturday - Pink Gift Tags

For PINK SATURDAY today I thought I would show some of my pink gift tags I have made. They add so much to my gifts! I also use them as book markers, in card making and I also just give a package of gift tags as a gift too. When I give or use them, I try to remember what the person likes. The other day I gave a package of some of my vintage cherry gift tags to someone who's whole kitchen is done in cherries!
