back deck abloomin!


 from my back deck!

i call this my favorite "room" in the house....

please enjoy these photos
 enhanced in photoshop (just for fun)
 with a
"soft and faded" action
from "Pioneer Woman"

we spend a lot of time out here....

right now,
 the New Dawn Rose
 is blooming in all its full glory
 over one of the arbors....

my urns are planted out with an all white palette....

and bright pink hydrangeas add a pop of color....

last year i had a swing hanging here,
 and this year, i have moved my little garden folly greenhouse to this location...
and lo and behold...

two types of clematis (henryii and jackmanii) both found their way into the folly (with just a wee bit of my coaxing)

nature amazes and inspires me so!

i hope you enjoyed this little tour

 of a part of my world...

can you see why this is my favorite room?

happy day to you, my friends!
