Come Along For A Backyard Tour

Monday, April 14, 2014

Every Spring Mike and I always go around the yard and make a little Spring check list of things that need to be spruced up.

Most of the time we have Easter, which is the perfect time to spruce up for Spring. There's nothing like a get together at your home to get you in gear and get some projects done.  But, this year we are going out to Brunch. Which actually I'm looking forward to!

I started with the backyard, because we already know we have big plans for the front. More about that in a future post. But I'll say this... I'm excited! ;)

So this time I thought I would grab my camera and snap some shots to share with you while I did my evaluation. We're very professional here. 

 I think it might be time to get a new bird feeder. My Son gave me this one years ago for Mothers Day and I'm not sure I can part with it. We'll see.
 Mexican Petunia
 Meyer Lemon- It's actually loaded with lemons so I think I'll have a good amount to make a couple more lemon pound cakes  this year. Click on the link for the recipe.
 Calla Lilly
 Purple Pixie Loropetalum
 My beautiful stag horn that my husband put in the oak tree about 25 yrs. ago
 Peace Lily
 Rosemary and Snapdragons
 My favorite spot
 Under this oak tree
 Lavender, Oregano, and thyme (not pictured) in my garden box.
 My husband built this arbor a while ago. It's held up great. But it might be time to restain it.
We just added the white pvc fencing all the way around. Which I love!!
 Confederate Jasmine smells amazing when it blooms
 Relaxing in the Adirondacks for morning or evening coffee is also a great spot.
We also just redid this porch with brick pavers that match the pool pavers.
 I'm in the process of redoing our porch so this is just a sneak peak. New cushions from Pottery Barn in a navy and white bold stripe with red trellis accent pillows.
Sydney enjoying the sun!!

So all in all, Mike will be happy to hear that we're in pretty good shape!

Maybe just some bags of mulch, always like to refresh each year. And maybe restain the arbor and we are good to go!

Ready to swim, grill and just relax!!

Thanks for coming along!

Happy Monday!!
