My family worked hard in the backyard today. Actually my husband is still trimming trees as I type this blog post. It all started this morning with us finally tackling the construction of the gazebo we bought at Big Lots last week. It IS a project...taking us THREE HOURS!!! But it was totally worth it. I'm in LOVE with this gazebo. I've never had one, so I am just a little giddy. I was pleasantly surprised to see how well it blended with the house! Check out the pics:
And Ta Da!
I've had this light fixture for about a year. I bought it in a local store before I moved from Oklahoma City. I had plans for it to go somewhere else, but I think it looks great out here instead.
I think even Holly likes the new outdoor space...
So, on to planting. My Great-Granny Skinner said that we should always plant something on Good Friday. I took that extra seriously this year.
I love caladiums!
Geraniums are one of my favorites. I can actually keep them alive. And, it was a flower of choice by my much missed Memaw. So, I feel a special connection to this flower. It's like a little piece of my Memaw is with me.
I bought this cute little Rountop Collection hummingbird in Old Town Spring in Spring, TX (a suburb of Houston). I don't typically buy little knick knacks for the yard, but I have to say it makes me smile.
