A Lovely Lady...

Last week I told you I was having a fun project
 done in my garden.
Here is a link if you missed it.

Well... like all household projects
it's taking longer than planned.

So I thought I would tease you
with just a taste of my project :-)

(click photos to enlarge)

The lovely lady is going to be a key player....


See her basket?
It should be pouring water....
(hint)

But since we have sprung a slight leak
I decided to fill it with garden fresh flowers for now.


Her bouquet is made of more of my
Gertrude Jekyll Roses,  they are so happy this year!
and... A few Pink-A-Boo flowers are tucked in.

I love how she is gazing at the flowers,
with that shy smile!
She looks to be enjoying them
as much as I do!


Dreamy...


Isn't she stunning!

I can't wait to finish this project!
It is an early anniversary present
for my husband and I.
Very early... we wanted to be able to enjoy it all summer:-)

My sweet husband is taking a long vacation next week.
It will be a stay at home vacation
with lots of gardening,
and maybe a day trip or two.
It's so hard to take more than a day trip with five dogs!

So...  I am hoping to finish up this project
and share it with you next week!


Today.. I am joining three fun parties!

Cindy at My Romantic Home


Jessica at A Few Of My Favorite Things


and...
Tootsie at Flaunt Your Flowers


I hope everyone has a fabulous and safe
Memorial Day Weekend!

Thanks for visiting me today,

Hi Bella
I like the flowers in the lady's basket as they provide a nice splash of colour.
'Staycation' has been an interesting buzzword for a couple of years now and it can be just as much fun as travelling.

Bella, that is such a gorgeous sculpture. The flowers are beautiful, and arranged so nicely. I'm sure this will 'flow' in with the rest of your amazing garden.

Natasha said...

I can't wait to see the finished project! I love the flowers but if it is the sound of running water that might be heard in the future, I think I might like that even more!

Best wishes and happy weekend,
Natasha.
