I can't believe it's Friday already...and Memorial Day weekend, no way!
We are going to a family BBQ on Sunday but will be home puttering around the house the rest of the weekend. I've started redoing a nightstand that I found at Goodwill for $9.00. The sanding is finished and it's ready for primer. I just haven't decided on a color yet. I think it's going in my sunroom which hasn't been decorated since we moved in. It's been the resident junk room...I've been nagging, er...encouraging my husband to clear all his stuff out so I can get busy. While I wasn't looking he did just that and would you believe it's still pretty full! Hmmm...I guess it's my turn.
I found some great fabric at a local thrift store with a soft teal, a happy green, yellows and orange, I was ready to buy it but I put it back...I wasn't quite sure it that was the direction I wanted to go but I can't stop thinking about it...I hope I don't regret it. Maybe I'll stop and take another look on my way home today. I'll post pictures when I'm finished.
I don't think I've shared pictures of the rear garden...It is still under construction but I think it's going to be one of the most peaceful places in the yard. This little gold planter was my mother in laws. I have it sitting out on this old stump with some water for the lizards and such. They love to sunbathe out here...
We had three beautiful, old California Ash trees growing when we first moved in. Unfortunately they were directly under the electric wires and every year the electric company would come by and whack them back. We finally gave in and had the two directly under the lines taken out. My husband planted three fern trees to replace them and provide some additional privacy but they have a ways to go.
The two beautiful hydrangea were a gift from my sister in law. I put them in pots because I have had such a hard time finding out where they will be most happy. They seem to like it tucked back in here so I will leave them alone for now.
This Japanese tea house was here when we moved in...I like the tranquil feeling it gives, so it stayed.
We have some miniature ivy as a ground cover and I wanted to add some flowers for color so I snuggled in some small clay pots and planted impatiens just to add a little pop. If you look closely you'll see them in some of the pictures. It has worked out wonderfully.
We inherited this beautiful pond from the previous owners. We added the Koi shortly after moving in...
I'm hoping to bring back pictures of a couple a gardens I will be enjoying on Sunday...family, the outdoors and BBQ...What could be better?
"Through Christ you have come to trust in God. And you have placed your faith and hope in God because he raised Christ from the dead and gave him great glory. You were cleansed from your sins when you obeyed the truth, so now you must show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply with all your heart."
Thank you all for the kind and encouraging words on my last post...
I've linked up with Tootsie for Fertilizer Friday...
