You would think I would have seen that weed and pulled it before taking the picture, and maybe added more shells, but what can I say! This plant is much brighter tipped in winter months, and the pink is still there. It caught my eye yesterday and I thought I'd show it. It's hard to imagine, but most days it goes unnoticed by me. Pretty though, eh??? I just noticed the picture of it in the side bar from a few years ago, and you can see it has grown a bit! Lots more twists and curls!

http://elizabethannesgarden.blogspot.com who asked to see a full view of the tire garden. Click on picture to make it larger. You can see I have some tires that are three high, some are two and some are one tire high. This can be done in a more attractive way. Mine really isn't all that large. I had gotten the ones that are flat on the ground started when I was planting collard greens in them and needed more tire space, but for succulents or flower gardening it is nice to stack higher to save your back. I have also seen where you can do rows kind of staggered and you can build out from higher tire stacks to lower and be able to plant in the spaces between the tires as well. I am actually thinking of using some 7 inch high (or so) edging to be able to close in the areas around the tires to plant in the spaces as well. I think some sweet sort of wild flowers would look very cool growing about. We shall see. I have not painted my tires because the sun and heat down here would probably have it all cracking off. I will, someday, empty these out and rearrange them in a more attractive manner. It will be a lot of work, because they are all full of soil that will have to be managed and redone. I can't think about that now until fall/winter here. Hope anyone who feels inspired to make a tire garden will do so and let me know so I can see what you do. Hey... here are some more sites you can check out I copied from Google Blog Search!

Our yard is full right now of tiny moths that hang out in the grass. Emily became enthralled with them and we decided to capture a few to have a better look.

I am completely smitten! I have a bid on a couple of Vera Bradley handbags, and a Betsy Johnson bag for my DIL! This is so fun. I love to search for a color, or whatever my heart desires, and browse the selections! Hope you will enjoy, if you choose to! I discovered this site in the middle of the night last night! If anyone knows me, now you know why I am half asleep during the day! Late night browsing! ;)
