I enjoy working in my flowers.
I thought I would share a few of them with you.
I especially love looking around the farm to see what kinds of things I can
use for landscaping.  I also like going to garage sales 
to look for different containers to put flowers in,
or to display a birdhouse like the one below.
I purchased the chair at a garage sale a few years ago
and gave it a new coat of paint to brighten it up.
What do you think?

My lilies are just about ready to bloom.  They are going
to be beautiful this year!
The barn door is from our barn.
It's day as a barn door is long gone,
but it sure looks lovely with a little painted sign,
a birdhouse and some grapevine!

Below is a fence that was hanging in the old hog barn.
This is what's behind the blue chair & barn door.
My husband took it down for me and we set
it up here to put in a new flower bed.
My mom gave me her hostas that she no longer wanted.
Of course, I had the perfect place for them!
I think they look beautiful!

More to come, but I thought I would
give you a brief tour of what I've been up to.
It's never a dull moment!

Enjoy your day!

Oh yes those lilies are going to be beautiful when they're fully out and I love the colour of the chair you painted. Just popped over from Amy's Bloggers garden tour :)
