What Next For Me? Bib Overalls?

Breathe deeply, the scent is delightful.

The stems with the clinging bubbles are a sight to see.

Get a load of this yellow splendor.

This is a new grouping we added this year.  A small variegated grass plant is hiding behind the mushroom.

A Japanese maple found its way home with us after shopping at K & W Greenery.

We also added a pair of these to the shrubs that surround our screen porch.

You've seen this before but I just had to show it again and mention that I painted the playground a few weeks ago.  I'm not completely done, but from the front it looks good!!

We set this planter on a few thick chunks of chopped up tree branches so we could see the flowers from inside the screen porch. 

Excuse me for being stuck on one subject for my blog posts.  Nearly all my spare time is spent in the yard, so that's where my heart is invested.

(I hope this looks the way I want it to because blogger won't let me edit my posts anymore.  Oh well, here goes!)

It looks just fine! And what is going on with blogger anyhow? I LOVE the first picture. Those are stunning peonies, one of my favorites! I do believe you may need a gardening show on one of the networks. We can never have to many of those!

MADDIE: I can't believe the number of hours I can spend in the yard. I'm constantly picking up leaves and other debris dropped by our trees. And then there are the mushrooms in our recent damp weather which pop up quicker than I can pluck them.

Thanks for your kind comments.

ROB: Thank you, my friend. Fresh air and exercise makes it pleasant work.

Oh. My. Gosh! I agree with mistress maddie - you need your own show!

Shaddy, these are amazing photographs that showcase your hardwork. I am impressed, and in awe! Girl, you are amazing in so many ways and now we can add gardener to the list! I am so glad you took the time to post these photos. It's fun seeing what you've been up to.

I am in love with those flowers! Gorgeous!

I bow to your green thumb...
Happy Weekend!

SARIE: Thanks for your enthusiasm regarding our yard. How can I not feel good about my work with a wonderful friend like you encouraging me all the way.

Have a great Tuesday, Sarie.
