|I found these old tubs in the barn|
and decided they needed a second life outdoors.
|The kids' fairy garden |
(complete with a tire swing!)
|I'm so glad I captured this peony one morning...|
later the same day, winds from a passing storm
had blown the petals away.
|This old rose hadn't bloomed in ages, until last year. |
Now, it's blooming again...I'm so thrilled!
|The herb garden right outside our kitchen door.|
It's so handy when I'm cooking, baking herb bread,
or making herbal vinegars at summer's end.
|Old-fashioned peonies are one of my favorite flowers.|
These plants were rescued from an old farmhouse
that was being torn down.
|A shady spot near our front door.|
