Our garden isn't as grand as the master gardeners, but I still think it's beautiful. Just like a mother!! Here are some pics from this morning.
Our guard dog...
This hosta is "fragrant beauty". It smells like sweet perfume.
Our long and narrow lot... way back there is a blue bench. I want to make it a secret garden someday.
Mmm...blackberries. I haven't had one! I've had the bushes for three years and when they are good and ripe the birds swoop down and eat every one! I ate this one today, even though it was still sour. I wonder what time birds get up in the morning!?!
And here's the other project I started this morning. I started with 2 garage sale candleabras and an antique bird cage stand. I spray painted them white. Somehow I am going to marry the light fixture with the stand. I still haven't figured out how to wire it. It will be about chest high when put together. Not a real tall floor lamp.
See that lime green desk? That was in someone's trash!! LOL. How could I let that be thrown away? My poor husband. He tolerates me but always says if I bring in something new, I have to get rid of something. Sometimes I actually do throw stuff out. Not really throw it out, but I donate to the Salvation Army where I love to shop!!! Once I honestly saw a sweater and thought, "that's really pretty", then I realized it used to be mine. I didn't buy it again. How's that for not bringing stuff home?
Let the beauty we love be what we do...
