New Beginnings......

























































































































I was a very early to rise this morning....5:30 a.m. to find we had frost on the outlying yard... I can possibly see a nap lurking this afternoon... I spend almost the whole day yesterday in the outdoor spaces... I have added new little starts of life in my spaces to take on the season... I will be getting a few more today.. as we have rain in the forecast for the weekend again... I accomplished also getting the other china water fountain up and running... All the china lays freely in the bowl for easy cleaning... I only have to change the water about every 3 weeks unless it endures a messing storm and flying leaves....I add just a couple small cupful of beach to the water to keep it clean and it works well... This little fountain is placed on the front porch entrance... Tom fertilized the yard yesterday and now is spraying for weed control... He will be playing golf this afternoon as his leagues start today... Working out of doors was a very pleasant but tiring experience...The yard is taking shape and I am on the finishing touches for the season and then you watch all those precious little plants spread their wings and grow.... I will take pictures in a few weeks when the pool has been opened and all start to beautify... All this makes for a very pleasant life in the country... I want to request if you haven't already, to visit Melanie on http://mysweetsavannah.blogspot.com for a lovely dose of touches of a country good ole time... I so enjoyed her post of yesterday... so very relaxing and very,very, charming.... I am going to snag a couple of her ideas over summer... I so love it when bloggers share lovely thoughts and ideas...
The pics I have shown today are objects and small plantings I accomplished yesterday...The pic of the little tin hanging house is now home to babies to the pair of finches I posted on earlier.... The pics are certainly not lavish as I may desire.... but it is just a good old country setting....My peaceful and little home with a touch of charm........ Blessings and best wishes for a lovely day....

Your yard looks so pretty. I like the little touches of china you've inserted with the flowers. It is so windy here in Illinois today that I'm afraid to go out and plant. Maybe another day. Thanks for all your pics, they are an inspiration. Smiles, Sally

Thank you for sharing these very nice and inspiring pictures. I feel I could go treasure hunting in your garden and find a surprise at each turn. :) I love the idea of the china mixed in with the dirt and plants.

SO nice Marietta!! I haven't even started. The only thing I have accomplished is planting little violas in teacups for a mother daughter tea on Sunday. Just found out Monday they wanted me to decorate so had to think fast! I am adding some china to my outdoor spaces this year! You have inspired me!
