Raised Garden Beds and Stitched Flowers

The work was made easy by ordering the soil delivered, then borrowing a neighbors tractor. I will finish planting today. Don't you think these will keep the Jack Pack at bay as well!?
Here is a stitched panel of forget-me-nots.
I wanted to make more of them after Mom's bag.
And this one is called "Five Orange Flowers".

Smiles to all.

The Jack Pack, I love it! Those are pretty nifty garden beds; I'll bet they discourage the rabbits, too! I love your newest stitcheries...we have lots of forget-me-nots in bloom just now, and I recently learned they are the state flower of Alaska.

The "Jack Pack" look pooped...and yes I think the raised beds will be a perfect solution for your back and all the little 4 legged furries, no matter who they are.Cute picture of them napping.
Love the forget me nots.

The raised beds are very nice. I made some for myselft but my stinker dogs still jump up into them and dig, dig, dig :(

Happy day to you!
