Back Yard Update

Small Spaces
can be
FuN!


When Buzz and I retired and downsized almost four years ago


 we purchased this mobile home.

Looks awful doesn't it!

Somehow we were able see passed all it's 
negatives and envision
the possibilities.


We started working on the gardens almost immediately 
because 
we understood how long they would take to mature.
  
Also, 
we knew from the beginning
that
 we wanted a space 
to sit and
enjoy the gardens.


We made do with old pallets covered with plywood for a while,


but the day finally came when we decided to get serious about creating a special space
that we could use to work and relax.


We built two 8'x8' decks
one in front of the work shop
and another
just a few feet away.


They're only a few months old, but we've already enjoyed them so much!



The wisteria will be for shade 
and the herbs
will keep the mosquitos away.



Now, even the path to the rain barrels is a little more colorful.


We've furnished this deck with an old garden bench that Buzz's mom gave us
and a couple of colorful folding chairs that we've had for ages.


We like the way they look and they're actually pretty comfortable.



Can you say "Not Boring"!

Have you EVER seen so much color!!!

Most mornings/evenings
you will find us out here
watching the
birds
bunnies
and 
bees
...

and of course
pulling
weeds!

Nothing fancy by any means ... but FuN by all means!  

Blessings!
