Thought I'd show you an update on the garden - it continues to amaze me daily - and such a sharp contrast to what we moved into last December ( when everything was covered in snow and the interior was a complete nightmare and so I suppose we kind of assumed the garden would be as well )
It just dawned on me how sick to death you must all be of hearing me call the house a hell hole - really - how boring of me - I'll try to stop that. Promise.
Anyway here's some photos of the outside of the hell hole.
That hole on the right hand side - do you think that's from a ground hog? I saw something run across the yard the other afternoon - well twilight actually - and it looked like a miniature SASQUATCH - it was NOT a ground hog but it ran under the shed where the ground dog is currently residing ( no - we still haven't got rid of it ) I think there's a commune under there at this point - they take turns coming out and grabbing food and then they all share it ...................nothing like putting away your differences for the sake of survival I suppose. Personally I want whatever's living under there OUT OF THERE - I'd cook for them every night and bring it to their new home if they'd leave.
We bought 2 climbing rose bushes a couple of months ago and one of them is finally starting to blossom
It was supposed to be a pale pink - but I'll take it! Eventually I'd like roses covering the fence entirely :)
We had that at one house and I've been pining for it since.
The Tiger Lilies have started to bloom as well
They're spilling out everywhere
This pergola bench will most likely be moved next year - but for now I just put my climbing flowers on it because Sasquatch thought it was her dessert - ( she doesn't really like to climb I've noticed - lazy thing )
But it probably worked out best because it's starting to climb !
Climb - little flowers climb - way up high - spread your tiny blooms and climb - across the universal sky
( and away from hungry critters )
I added a door in the corner of the garden - under the ladder arbor and added my twig heart to it
Nothing much can grow there so I needed to add some interest
she wears a sign that expresses what I feel about this backyard ♥
A wooden trunk that once resided in my bedroom now sits outside - perfect for storage AND holding back some overgrown plants - I put flameless candles on this at night
I'm not sure what this is
But's it sure is beautiful when it blossoms
I found a few rusty items in the shed - no no no - they don't belong in there !
John says - what the hell are you hanging a rusted spade on the fence for?
Suzan says - It's called ART John - don't you recognize art when you see it?
John says - if that's ART - then I'm a horse's ass..............
Oh well - if the shoe fits sweetheart - because it's definitely ART
So is this old steel sprinkler -
and this one
John says - WHERE are the sprinklers?
Suzan says - In the garden
John says - CAN YOU LEAVE THEM IN THE SHED PLEASE ??? I USE THE BLOODY THINGS!
Suzan says - Can't you go buy some cheap ones from Home Depot or something?
But he uses them - and then I run around and place them back in the garden
John says - They are NOT art - stop already
John says - What the hell is this - the Louvre?
John says - Next you'll be putting velvet ropes around everything
My Son left a hat here last week - yup - you guessed it - it's now been claimed by Mama as art
John says - we'd better bring Gordie's hat inside
Suzan says - DON'T touch it please - it stays there
John says - Let's hope no one forgets their underwear here when they change into their swimming suits - you'll be decorating the trees with them................
OK - I almost peed my pants over that one - you have to understand he's very aggravated when he's saying these things - I don't know if they're as funny to anyone else as they are to me - but I could split a gut sometimes !!!
I paired an upside down ceramic funnel with a rusty plant stand
John says - I'm afraid to ask - but what exactly is that?
Suzan says - It's a garden dunce cap..............
( sometimes you gotta beat them at their own game don't you know? )
Back to the flowers - the hanging baskets are thriving
as are the rest of the potted annuals
Looks like we've went round and round the garden - several times in fact lol
There's a party here on Saturday night - let me know who's coming - and how many of you there are please.
Have a beautiful Tuesday -
