New Flower Garden

While hubby and I were fixing up our front porch we used some of the extra concrete to fill in some holes by the side walkway to our house. It left quite a mess in the grass area so I tried to figure out how to get rid of or cover up the mess… then it came to me… add a slightly raised flower garden over top and along the edge of the walkway…Gerber DaisyThis way it helps cover up the mess and provides some better definition for the walkway to our side door. I liked the way it turned out…New gardenI then had to figure out what flowers to add. Normally I like perennials, but they didn’t have any pretty ones when we went to the garden center so I picked these annuals…. The pretty Gerber daisy above. Then two of these multi colored duster like flowers to go on either side…Hot flowersHot flowers 2Finally these pretty delicate pink and white flowers on either end…sml flowerI am quite happy with how it came out and it makes me smile each time I go out the side door…New Garden 2It is amazing what a little flower garden can do for your mood 🙂

There is no place like Home…

I am sure when we all hear these words we think of The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy, and the yellow brick road. Today I thought of how true these words are for me coming home from our recent trip to Nebraska. I missed our dogs, chickens, my bed, and just being in my own space. I think the best part of being in your own place is the sense of freedom you can do what you need without needing to ask so you do not disturb someone else space too much. It was great to go outside on a beautiful day like today play with the pups in the yard, watch the chickens, and work in the yard getting things set up for spring.

I also found some on the vegetables I planted this past fall have come back and I am looking forward to cooking them.

It was a lovely day and a great start to the weekend.

I wanted to share some more photos of my trip as I got so many neat pictures. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Thanks for reading, your comments, and visiting my blog 🙂 Happy Weekend!
