Early this morning, I found myself doing what I love most...."puttering". Puttering can take many forms, but today it was "strolling" around our backyard... checking on the budding roses and the new growth of the hydrangeas. Since it was a bit overcast, everything looked just that much greener and somewhat lush!?...Could it be?...LUSH??? Last year when we were trying our hardest to get the entire yard landscaped ( & yes...we did most of it ourselves!,... let me rephrase that...my husband did about 90% , me 10%), it seemed as if it would be years till the trees & plants took hold. We dreamed of the day when it would actually appear as if we had lived here more than a year. So you can imagine how tickled I was, when my "puttering" this morning, turned into the realization, that possibly our yard someday could look like the grounds of an overgrown English garden & estate???....O.K., O.K....a girl can dream can't she?
The view from the "pergola" looking back at our house.....Random thought: a pair of blue shutters would look great on the second floor window, don't you think?
The lounges & unbrellas are "lonely....just waiting for a "lazy body with a good book"....
P.S. A heartfelt "thank you " to those of you who have left such sweet comments! You are all among my favorite bloggers!!!
