Spring is in the air

Hello everyone, Hope your week is going good, and you all had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend, Tia and I spent Sunday working in the yard... Got most all my flowers planted and the patio almost done. My dear friend Cindy made the new slip covers for the chairs outside these were given to me by a client  I spray painted then Oil Rubbed Bronze they where a hunter green... I still have to put up the curtains.






I found the table at GW last year, And the ferns came form a dear friend for Mother's Day...


And what about this beauty... This came from Joy  over at 
http://www.savvycityfarmer.com/  I have wanted a old pulley for a long time.... Thank you Joy. She has some pretty cool stuff.




Here are a few more pictures of what the yard looks like , Finally winter is over...










I still have some planting to do and then I will show everyone the whole yard.... Have a great and sunny day.....

What a lovely patio, I'm in love with the way you made the covered area to your pergola. I have recently built one on my back and I'm needing inspiration. Everything looks beautiful.....I'm visiting over from the blog party.
Hope your day is great, love your blog so I'm your newest follower.

Wow Patti, this is gorgeous! I thought winter was over here, so we planted like mad this weekend, but now today it is 40 something and drizzly. I can handle that, but I'm holding my breath that we don't actually hit the 31 degrees forecast for tonight. You may hear about a crazy lady covering her plants with her body!!!

Have a great week!
Hugs,
Judy

Patti- OH so lovely! And...I am totally stealing your idea. I have two old pulleys from our farm and have been going to use them for plants...Now I have a new idea! Guess what it is! xxoo Diana

Gypsy Heart said...

I'd love to come over and sit out there with you and Tia and just absorb spring and nature! It is such a beautiful space. The pulley is perfect for the chandy...and by the way, where did you find the latter?

Plants are so terribly expensive here this year ~ and no one can figure out why. I would have started early with lots of seeds had I known. I just adore having lots of plants & flowers but alas, not this year.

Enjoy your space! Have a wonderful week ~
Pat
