Garden magic - take me away

Good morning all!

At the risk of my blog becoming a " dark " place after yesterday's post - today's is going to be about Garden Love - and happy places..................

I close my eyes and soon I find
I'm in a playground in my mind................

And my playground is called  Pinterest

Have I redeemed myself yet?
How about if you come over and have a bite to eat with me ?

and if the wine and the good food and the sunshine make you just a little sleepy - you're more than welcome to take a nap

and I'll just be over here cutting some fresh lavender for you to bring home

Here you go - I packed a few extra

All of the above images can be found on my boards as follows

Garden Gates
Garden & Porch Swings
Al Fresco
Secret Gardens
Beautiful Gazebos

Have a wonderful day everyone!
