Thanks for all of the nice comments on our newly painted exterior!
Speaking of exteriors. We are fortunate that this house came with some good garden "bones". As the spring season progresses, were are delighted every day with something new. We have had daffodils, grape hyacinths, several varieties of iris, azaleas, red bud trees, forsythia and Bradford pear trees blooming. There are also several hydrangeas that are getting buds on them!
We have planted a lilac bush, gardenia, lavender, peonies and boxwood so far. Come take a little walk with me around the house.
Here is Maddie...her hair is growing a little.
The lilac bush we planted this spring is full of blooms.
One of the peonies blooming.
A rooster hiding in the Lily fronds. My friend Penny gave it to me a few years back, as a house warming gift for my previous home.
My little back patio area is crowded with my veggie "garden". Next year we will have raised beds, the table and chairs will be moved off the patio and under a pergola, soon to be built by Mr. Comforts, and hopefully we will have a fireplace next to the patio.
As you can see, even though the garden has great bones, it does need some house whispering. I promise to share it all...from the pergola building to the raised beds to the fireplace, when they happen.
Off to Home Goods to pick up a few things for the master bedroom...reveal coming soon!
