My Favorite Place...

Today...  I thought I would share with you...
my favorite garden getaway :-)

(click to enlarge photos)

It's my wicker chair on the backside of the gazebo...


A perfect place to lounge around in the afternoon,
the sun is at my back
so it's a relaxing place to enjoy a magazine.

And pink lemonade is always a delicious treat!



I haven't got my little area all dressed up yet,
our weather has still been too cool and wet.

So... I just tossed a white cotton dish towel
 over the little table,
and grabbed a few of my favorite things.

I wanted to show you today
because my Gertrude Jekyll Roses
are right behind my chair and
 they are looking and smelling wonderful!


I brought my rusty old bird bell to my table..
just for fun.

Do you think if I ring it a team of garden fairies
may appear and do all the work for me?
I can daydream,  right?


and tucked a nest of moonstone eggs
into the birdcage...


Here are the roses,
they don't seem to mind the wet weather.
They are English Roses!


And...  just because I love these little guys,
here is an urn I planted today.

I Planted Saxifrage in the top,
which should spill out and look lovely
and... I planted some plugs of Pennyworth
at the feet.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Today I am joining a few fun parties...

Very relaxing! And I would adore having that urn in my yard. It's going to look beautiful once the flowers start to spill over the edges.

Stop by, we're having a giveaway!

Well you have such a fabulous deck and garden! I know it's wet and chilly for you still, but we never see anything that lush here. You say it's not dressed up yet--looks perfect to me! (My son lives in Blaine, and a good friend lives near Portland--I went to STARS (ALL of them) a couple years ago. Can't wait to go back!)
