In My Own Little Corner....

For the most part, I'm a firm supporter of whoever said, "The house is DONE when you die!"  Do you know what I mean?  It's like this ongoing process....where, even for the things that were once "done" in your mind, you're already looking at with those squinty little eyes....thinking "Ooooo, that would look even better if  I did blah, blah, blah to it.....," then you snap out of it when your husband blurts, "Don't even THINK about it!"
However, after working for years on our backyard, I finally do feel like we've gotten our additional outdoor "room" close to completion.  (Don't pay any attention to the cord running from the fountain...we'll get to it someday, I'm sure....;)
Set up for luncheon...normally there's only 2 tables/chairs....the black set is from my kitchen.

The striped Porcupine Grass is my favorite annual ornamental grass.
Neptune with up-lighting.

Lots of container gardening!!!
Sweet Autumn Clematis arch over side path....
One of my large pots making a big splash.
I love mornings in the garden with a cup of herbal tea in hand....just looking around makes my head spin with new color combinations for handbags and necklaces.  It's no wonder I incorporate so many flowers and floral designs in what I create.
It's also nice to spend our evenings in such a serene place with water trickling in the background.  Finally....we get to enjoy.....

Sue, thank you for visiting my blog and for your comment(s). You live in a corner of the world that is outstandingly beautiful. I have very good friends living in Colorado Springs ~ those mountains are awe inspiring. I love your purses ~ so elegant and they are reminiscent of the "style" the Duchess of Windsor was so famous for. Come and visit me again soon and yes, let us do stay in touch! Hugs, Marilyn
