Spring Teaser

I know it's a little early around here to be dreaming of summer lounging and gardening, but I'm so excited that our four foot pile of snow in the backyard has almost completely melted it puts me in the mood for the outdoors.  We can actually see some grass and tender little bulbs poking through the soggy ground.  With gardening and outside living catalogs coming in the mail on a daily basis I'm beginning to make plans for the patios and window boxes.  Still trying to decide where to put the pool,  besides in my dreams.
  Just a few pictures of warm weather inspirations from last summer.

I
A little touch of vintage with the cruiser bike.  The side panels on the side of the window are from our previous home.  One of our souvenirs. The geranium pot looks pretty sad.  The plant is a start I took from another healthy geranium. When we lived in California we could just break off a stem of a geranium, stick it in the ground and it would start to grow.  Not such luck here.
The calming, lovely stream Mr. T built has provided hours of fun for the kids.  Boat races, fairy houses along the rocks, and throwing sticks and rocks into the stream and watching them go under the bridge into the pond is better than any toy.
The  barbecue station or the summer kitchen.


The side yard is an English Garden in progress.  Looking forward to doing more this summer with a path, benches and statuary.  This is the favorite path of the deer heading right for the vegetable garden. bah humbug!  They are so tame they just wander around the neighborhood eating all of the delicacies we have planted for them.  Yes I know they are cute.
Looking forward to the beautiful color that will come back to our world soon.  Till then I will be patient, dream and plan.

Oh how I love this beautiful yard! It's such a perfect retreat and that last picture looks like it belongs in an English countryside book. So pretty. xo
