About Me

My photo
My passion is decorating with vintage and antique finds on a budget. There was a time when I wouldn't have dreamed of going into a goodwill. That day has passed. :) My second love is scrapbooking all those special family moments for posterity, and I recently set up my very own scrapbooking room. I have three beautiful children, two sons and a daughter as well as a sweet (albeit full blooded Yankee) daughter-in-law and two grandgirls. I also enjoy gardening, meeting new friends and relaxing on my patio in the evenings with a glass of fine wine. During the summer of 2001, I spent two glorious weeks at Kennedy Space Center. I've been somewhat of a space geek ever since....

Outdoor Wednesday

Susan over at A Southern Daydreamer is hosting Outdoor Wednesday. Hop on over and check her blog at http// Doubleclick to enlarge the pictures.

My poor patio has been neglected lately. I've just been so busy with other stuff that until yesterday I hadn't bought a single bedding plant. That's not like me. I'm usually working in the yard before the danger of the last frost has passed. Here is my first humble attempt at bringing some color to my patio. I still have a trunk full of mulch for my beds. Planting flowers is lots more fun than weeding and mulching, don't you think?


  1. Yes planting flowers is soooooooooo much better than cleaning out flower beds. I guess planting flowers is the reward for a hard job well done. Happy gardening. Sonia/Miss Bloomers

  2. I'm sure that it'll still get done and be lovely.

  3. Yes I agree, plant away!! I'm in a condo so my gardening is well....non existent until I travel to our home in Washington state and then it's just catch-up and weed :0)

  4. Planting flowers is the MOST fun -- and far above weeding and mulching on the priority list!
    You go -- plant and plant and plant some more. You won't regret it when everything has come into its full flower.

  5. Planting flowers is MUCH more fun than weeding and mulching. Looks like a great start!

  6. Your pots are pretty. I have the exact same blue pot you have on the left in the second picture. Actually I have two of them. I need to clean them out and plant something new in them.

  7. I love container gardens because the weeds don't invade as much. I also love having fresh herbs in containers. My only herb that would stayed alive from last year was the common sage. Othere are growing from seed now.

    The climbing roses on the backyard pergola are the backyard prize. They wintered the freeze well.

    When we painted our house and got new windows we freshened up some of our landscaping. It is endless, but if we keep at it each week hopefully we can keep those pesky weeds at bay.

  8. Sorry I am late getting around to visit... I hope you had a Happy Outdoor Wednesday....and that you will participate again soon! Thanks for sharing your photos.~ Susan
