I hope you had a fabulous weekend!
This is a re-post of Fridays post
when Blogger had it's mini meltdown...
If you have already seen it I apologise
Yesterday we had a sunny and not windy day
at the same time :-)
So I ran to the nursery and home improvement store,
I think everyone in the state was there...
we have been needing a day like that!
(click photos to enlarge)
I have a pair of these hanging pots
so I picked up basket stuffers...
and I picked up paint,
the hanging pots were black iron last year
and I spent the whole year wishing
they were shabby white...
now they are a better match for the birdie hanger...
this is the view out my office window,
it's so nice to see the green filling in in the trees!
I love to make up my own basket mixes each year,
that way I can always try something new...
this year I used a Dahlia in the center,
I don't do a lot with Dahlias
and it said it would bloom all summer
so well see...
the fillers are
Bacopa, Brachyscome, Viola, Alyssum and Verbena...
I always use Verbena
it keeps the Hummingbirds happy,
and they make me happy :-)
I thought these were the prettiest Viola,
the colors are so soft, like a watercolor painting...
It was a wonderful day!
I love to plant!
and as if...
all the sunshine and planting fun wasn't enough...
Look at this sweet bluebird pie bird
that showed up in my mailbox this morning!!
Sweet Sweet Sarah at Hyacinths for the Soul
sent me this happy little guy!
The thoughtfulness of the ladies in blogland
never fails to make me smile!!
you even won my husband's heart on this one!!
"now you gotta make a pie!" he said.
Thank you so much!!
Today I am joining...
Have a Great Weekend!
