Just A Little Garden Update

Since early Spring, Buzz and I have been digging, planting, and moving things around in the garden.  We look at it as a good way to get our daily exercise... plus it's slowly making our place look more like home.  
 We've added a Butterfly Garden
Some Texas Natives
And a Kitchen Garden

We've also added some FuN, like this bicycle...
We're not sure where it will end up, but it will have a place of honor.  
It's so cute all dressed in White!
We're also working on a potting shed behind our storage shed.   I'll be showing you all the goings on in there soon because we're almost finished.   
We can hardly wait!
Buzz surprised me with this cute Garden Bench 
made out of pallets
I Luv It ... it's our spot for viewing the garden in the evenings.


Then there are these 
Nifty new slippers for walking around in the garden. 
Buzz has a matching pair in Lime Green.  
They were my treat from a recent visit to Ikea.
Can I just say... We love them! 

Until Next Time
Happy Gardening!

Join me at the party!

  3. I can't believe how much you've already accomplished in just a year! At the monthly sales in Buffalo,MN one of the shops had a white spary painted bike hanging on an interior wall as modern art. It was pretty cool looking.

    Great pallet bench, too!

    1. The garden is looking better, but we did have a hail storm this past week that gave us a little set back ":o( Nothing serious though.
      The bench.. we just dry brushed over the pallets. It toned it down quite a bit... Of course, Buzz is already planning another bench ... all he can see are things he wants to change, but I love it just the way it is.
      Thank you for the comment!
      Blessings!

    2. Hi Lynn... I was reading Mobile Home Living's blog "The Davis Home" and wondered if that was you. It's a beautiful home!

      I also wanted to let you know that I have a mix pod on my blog just for you...you'll just have to play it to hear your birds. ":o)
      Let me know if that was your home... I was excited to think it was.

  18. Everything is so perfect! I love your planter out there and the pallet bench. I would love to make something like that, but I have to make a planter out of the wood I've already drug home first. Thanks for the inspiration! Found your post at Share Your Cup.

  20. Thanks for coming by and reading about my back alley inspiration, Geneva. So glad to hear from you! Keep up the pallet goodness. Can't wait to see what your husband makes next! I'm following you now so I can keep an eye on how things progress.

  21. What a cute bench! You could make those and sell them easily! Great way to re-use a product!
    That's awesome that you added a butterfly garden! I love to see them!
    I like the bike too! I've seen baskets hung on the handlebars that are planted with flowers that look so cute!
    Cute stuff!!

    All your hard work shows - looks amazing (and love the flops)!

  23. Hi Geneva, you have really added alot of charm to your gardens. Can I just say that a bit of jealousy is going on over here at my house. It's in our (my) plans to have a potting shed. Thinking maybe next year. Yours is looking absolutely fabulous! Can't wait to see the reveal. I love the bike and the wagon just hangin out right where they are. You have done a great job. Thanks for sharing with Share You Cup. I think I need a trip to IKEA.
    Hugs,
    Jann

  24. Hi Geneva...do you have any instructions on how to make the garden bench out of pallets? My husband is very handy and we would live to make one for my daughter. Live your blog!
