Hello everyone! Thank you so much for your comments on my new bedroom! Many of you asked what Phillip thought of the new look. He loves it! I was expecting him to jump up and down with excitement but evidently that's just a girl thing. ;0) Dot, asked where I got everything. I got the comforter, curtain rods, pillows and lampshades at Walmart. The curtains and pillowcases at Target.
We've finally had a break from the rain so we ate dinner outside tonight. I made some Backporch Lemonade. I heard about it from Autumn. It is half lemonade and half iced tea and it's really good!
I also dug out my iced tea swizzle sticks from the back cupboard. My favorite one is this little pink pig!
My gardens have enjoyed all the rain so I thought I would take you on a little tour...
Creeping thyme near the water garden.
Lemon balm and Dill.
My Lamb's Ear is finally making a comeback after been eaten by the wild bunny. I think I have managed to kick him out of our backyard, but we'll see.
I have never had good luck with tomato plants but I'm going to try this patio version...it stays in a pot. I hope they turn red!
Ever-bearing strawberry plant.
My Wisteria making its way up the fence post very quickly.
Yes, I will spend the livelong day
With Nature in this month of May;
And sit beneath the trees, and share
My bread with birds whose homes are there;
While cows lie down to eat, and sheep
Stand to their necks in grass so deep;
While birds do sing with all their might,
As though they felt the earth in flight.
