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
Join me at the party!
Everything looks great, and those garden slippers are too cute! Parrot love. :) xoReplyDelete
I love what you are doing...the kitchen garden looks fabulous! I would love to have the space (and less bunnies) for one of these! Love your slippers!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Great pallet bench, too!
You have been one busy lady...love it all...such a cute bike too!!ReplyDelete
Your garden looks so great! I love the fun features, like the bike, wagon and bench~ReplyDelete
looks like y'all are enjoying making your place look homey outside as well as inside.
What a difference from one year to the next-beautiful!!
Everything looks like it is positively thriving. Absolutely beautiful!!!! Love the bike. How did you achieve the painted look on that adorable bench?ReplyDelete
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.Delete
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!
What an awesome blog you have. Thanks for finding me via Coastal Colors. I will be back. Blessings on your day.Delete
P.S. Yeah!!!! The birds are back!!!!ReplyDelete
Just for you Lynne... ":o)Delete
Hi Lynn... I was reading Mobile Home Living's blog "The Davis Home" and wondered if that was you. It's a beautiful home!Delete
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.
Very inspirational! I love the garden transformation.ReplyDelete

Everything looks great! I'm in love with the pallet bench! The flip flops are too cute! I can't wait to see more! I see lots of inspiration here! Thanks!ReplyDelete
It's such a beautiful transformation! You go girl! I love this time of year working in the garden...great feeling of accomplishment and beauty! xo wendyReplyDelete
You've already made some beautiful changes. It'll probably look so cozy when you're finished.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful garden and storage area! Wanna come fix ours? lolReplyDelete
What a beautiful garden you have. I love all your creative ideas, the raised beds, bench and the cute bike. Can't wait to see more. Thanks for stopping by with your lovely comments. New Follower too!ReplyDelete
Your garden is beautiful! What a transformation in one year. It is nice to have a cozy place to relax and unwind. I'm visiting from Share Your Cup Thursday. Have a lovely day!
Your flowers are so pretty, Geneva. And I love the garden bench!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Your garden is looking great. I bet that white bike will look great somewhere in the garden!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
What a cute bench! You could make those and sell them easily! Great way to re-use a product!ReplyDelete
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!
I need to find a bike and a can of white spray paint! Love that!ReplyDelete
All your hard work shows - looks amazing (and love the flops)!
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.ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
Sorry Trish ... I really don't. I think he just winged it that day, and got lucky. I like it too, but he hasn't made any more ":o)Delete
Thank you so much replying...hopefully my husband can wing it to:) love it!!ReplyDelete
