Certainly talented, and a caring brother!
A question: are those plants in the back some kind of equisetum?

Yes, I've been very blessed when it comes to my family ! They mean the world to me...:-). I Will have to go to my mom's and brother's house and take a photo of the other things he made this year for Christmas gifts, he has more talent in his finger than I have in my whole arm...lol, and I'm very proud of him !

Yes Mzgreen, it surely a blessing ! It's all I can do to make myself go inside long enough just to cook dinner in the evenings after I get home from work. I believe I would be contend to live outside three seasons of the year...lol

Hahaha... it's genetic! your brother is an artistic genius too! Must be living in the country with all that fresh air and exercise!

Appreciate that Lori, can't wait to tell him about all the positive feedback he's been getting on GOY. It will surely make him blush....( I'll be getting a kick out of that too !) What are sisters for anyway, right ?....lol

How clever is that?

Thanks Dottydaisy ! Finally took a picture of the gifts he made for my other brother and my mom for Christmas, I will be posting them soon. Still haven't gotten over to his house to get a picture of the ones he made for his wife. Said he's in the process of making a gigantic ladybug....lol Can't wait to see that one !

2 May, 2009

 

wow! I want to see the ladybug! Tell him "congrats!" from me, please, Flcrazy? that turtle is so perfect! from a disc and muffler parts?...he is a genius! LOL.... should employ him to make you a huge trellis ...I was thinking about making one out of re-bar...lol...maybe a scale model of the Tour Eiffel!

4 May, 2009

 

LOL....., I don't think I've been nice enough to get that Lori ! But I can still ask him anyway, just for the priceless look that will be on his face ..lol

4 May, 2009

 

Priceless....or pricey>>>?? lol.... was noticing the lovely little clumps of violets! at present the northwest corner of my back garden is light blue....they are like a carpet.. man I love those little guys!

7 May, 2009

 

Yes Lori, I love them too . I let them fill in the cracks between the rocks. Best part about them happens to be, they are FREE, and I think they make the pond area look more natural.

8 May, 2009

 

Your brother has a wonderful talent for metalwork and an artistic mind for the natural shapes of the animals and birds that he creates.

30 May, 2009

 

~natural talent and recycling ~well done and lucky you!

30 May, 2009

 

Thanks Lindak and Arlene, I'll be sure and pass the congrats to him tomorrow. Never thought about the recycling part of it Arlene. That makes it twice as nice...:-)

31 May, 2009

 

How can you say that your brother has more talent than you when you look at the AMAZING things that you have grown in your garden !! Don't put yourself down Jerrie, you're far too talented ! x

30 Aug, 2009

 

What a sweet thing to say Sue, bless you ! I'm so glad you like the garden, some would think it a waste of good land...lol.

30 Aug, 2009

 

Then them people ain't got no soul !!!

31 Aug, 2009

 

Oh yeah?! and who would "they" be? tsk! tsk! just refer them to me.

31 Aug, 2009

 

I don't think they have alot of things...lol. Imagination being top on a very the list, but what do I know . Thanks Lori, I know you could certainly straighten them out for me friend ..;-)
