Our Garden in Italian Magazine!

I wanted to share some news with you that I am very excited about-our garden here on Prince Edward Island was published in the Italian magazine Country & Country that is out on the shelves now. Cinzia saw our garden on my blog and wrote and asked for permission to use my photos in the magazine Country & Country. She did an interview by email and it is published now. It was exciting to read a comment from a sweet friend in Italy Francesca at http://passionedeco-francesca.blogspot.com/ telling me she was reading the magazine and recognized our garden and even sent me a scanned copy! Doesn't blogging make the world a small place? Cinzia is also sending me a copy of the magazine that should arrive soon.

Thank you, Cinzia for choosing our garden to feature in Country & Country !

I just took photos of the scanned photos on the computer so the quality is as good as the magazine but that was the only way I could do it.


Thank you for listening to me brag a little and thank you Francesca for sharing in the excitement with me!
It has been sunny and warm the last couple of days and last night I saw my first hummingbird of the season fluttering from flower to flower in the garden-I am so glad they are back! Next time I hope I have my camera in hand.

Have a good day,

Carolyn

Oh Carolyn, I have never seen a garden more deserving to be written up in a gardening magazine. The time and effort that you put into your gardening efforts truly shows, your garden is amazing. I just wish your garden was written up in one of our American magazines for us to savor.

I wish I could join one of your garden tours and I know as your garden unfolds it is a sight to behold. In FL our gardens unfold much too quickly.

Congratulations on being written up in the Italian mag. there is no one more deserving. I am so glad you shared the news with your readers.
