Trails and Trellis Garden Tour
It is that time of year again!
It was a beautiful Saturday morning to visit some of the most
beautiful gardens in our area. Even this carport is pretty.
Here are a few of my favorites from this year.

Creative garden art draws our eye
to this beautiful bed of annuals. 
Gaston the alligator looks at home among the blue ageratum.
Awww. Now I want ducks in my yard. Of course,
that means a pond or water feature of some kind.
Wonder what David will think about that?
I always get good ideas, like this colorful planter.
Love, love the color of these chairs.
They look so cool and inviting on the lawn.
Just lovely, peaceful lawn love.
These glider chairs remind
me of chairs in our yard when I was a child.
This pretty entry way caught my eye. The chartreuse
potato vine with the deep pink geraniums really
stand out and the lanterns add a sweet touch.
(love the house color as well)

This outdoor dining table arrangement was stunning.
The vase is handmade wood and the flowers
paired with fruit was another favorite.
I always come home with lots of ideas
and at least one thing I want to incorporate into
my country yard here on Cypress Knee Swamp.
Though not a plant or flower,
 I have wanted to make one of these flags
 and now I am inspired......this is the year!
Hopefully before July 4th..............
Will let you know if it comes to pass.
Hope you are enjoying God's beauty this spring.

Carolyn, it was so good to see you at the top of my blog list ... I've missed your travels and beautiful pictures.

I enjoyed going along on the Trails and Trellis Garden Tour with you ... and I, too, love the lime green chairs. I've been wanting something that color in our courtyard.

I love your flag idea ... and can't wait to see it when it's finished.

Have fun!
