No April showers here,
but lots of April
(and foliage too).
Daily I have been hanging out laundry to dry and enjoying the sound and sight of birds
Yesterday I brought out the remainder of our adirondack chairs and placed them by the wildflower garden, the lower pond and bamboo grove...
and I placed a lace tablecloth (vinyl) on one of our patio tables--
inspired by the beautiful settings of Patty on her blog
(see below for her blog url...she has some amazing photos on today's post BTW)!
My best friend and I transplanted Japanese irises earlier this week
(because we had no other choice NOT because it is the correct time of the year to do so),
planted a new red azalea my dear SIL bought me last year
(have I said in the last few minutes how incredibly blessed I am to have SO
many great brother and sister-in-laws?) and other new plants.
I am feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the things that need to be done outside--
mostly because our weeds and bamboo are thriving as much as all the flowers:(
I definitely need to remind myself to breathe and take one thing at a time...
and maybe take a little time out by the pond.
Well it's time to eat and get busy before I waste more time online
and miss out on all the beauty outside!
Wishing you a peaceful weekend...
