I am SO enjoying our garden this year! Last year we broke records for amount of rainfall.....rained for 6 weeks without a break...........was so soggy nearly nothing did well. This Spring has been very dry.
We water the gardens and our 9 large and newly planted trees regularly, but do the minimum of lawn watering - you will see in the pics it has a nice golden dry hue to it. We have over 2 acres, and it wouldn't do to water it all during somewhat of a drought. They say it is better for lawn care to let it "rest" instead of only half watering.
Today I am sharing a bouquet of freshly picked flowers from our gardens - some formal traditional, some grown in a wildflower garden section....but they play well together.
This hand painted roses vase is a recent thrifty find.
It's green glass with a milky white interior.
That is a large pot of tomato plants behind it. We only have a couple dime sized tomatoes on it so far.
Such a bright day it hides the vintage doilie under that vase!
The little wicker table was a thrifty score on the cheap! (You have seen it before.) I just love its versatilityand small size.
Newly painted vintage wicker & new rug bringing fresh new look to our covered patio. It changes often and right now I am really lovin' it! (the wicker was a CL find, whoo hoo priced right!!)
Thanks to my DH things are lookin' pretty spiffy in this little space.
He who built the overhead portion of this room - we call "The Zen Room," he who helps make the prettiest of gardens with his pruning, digging mulching and watering, he who painted this wicker to make it prettier for me, he who works so hard (so I don't have to)......
I give you all my love!
