The landscape architect's rendering. Along with my gardening journal... Jenn Tavoletti of Rabbit Hill Primitives http://www.rabbithillprimitives.com/
made my garden journal and this sweet bird nest in a fabric covered box...
A quiet corner with a green marble birdbath of faux water lillies and a bowl of hydrangeas picked from the front yard. Help yourself to a cookie...they're my specialty :)
Come sit on the swing for a bit... I just barely finished this pillow in time! The design is by Primitive Gatherings
If you stay late enough, we can have a fire and roast some marshmallows.
Do you see the joyful buddha peeking beneath the tree? My great uncle, the carver Kava Kava, created him in 1976. I was blessed to inherit him when my great uncle and aunt passed some years back. We have a fountain now, which we love, but it doesn't mask all the sounds of the city. My boys made the butterfly house for me for Mother's Day a few years back. The fruit and vegetable garden has really taken off since this picture, but that's another story for another day. My prolific strawberry patch is on the left. The evergreen tree on the right was a just a foot tall stick when we planted it a few months after our oldest son's birth.
"Come in the evening, or come in the morning; Come when you're look'd for, or come without warning. Kisses and welcome you'll find before you, And the oftener you come here the more I'll adore you!" -Thomas Osborne Davis
Thanks for taking so much time to visit me today. I promise my next post won't be soooo long.
