Pretties For My Garden…

The girls and I went to Joann’s because I needed another skein of yarn for Jessica’s poncho. We lucked out and found one with the same dye lot! Whew…

We then went to the area where they are selling all the garden items and they are half off right now…

Look at the new pretties I picked up…I’m tickled!

What?  You can’t really see them that well? Oh, okay, here are some close-ups…just ignore the weeds, please…

Garden Angel because my other one was literally falling apart.

Birdhouse, because I love that butterfly…LOL

Butterfly wind-chime…need you ask why? It’s a butterfly, ‘nuff said! Of course, no birds may actually use the birdhouse because of the wind-chime, but who cares, it’s pretty! LOL

My purple clematis has started blooming…

So do these…

I’d show the gerberas up close, but they are looking a little ragged right now.

The honeysuckle has some blooms, so I guess I didn’t kill this one!

I like that it has both white and yellow flowers. Very pretty.

It’s already pretty overcast here, so I’ll be keeping my eye on the sky and later the news…

 

Thanks for indulging me…hope you are having a happy day.

Jeanne,

I love your fabulous finds. I think I might have to go to J's to see if they have an angel like yours. LOVE it! I picked up a giant toadstool at Wmart today for my garden! Will snap pics for ya when the rain stops :)

Your flowers are blooming nicely and I can just smell your honeysuckle.... wish our neighbor's would bloom for us to enjoy!

I love that area of your yard with the pebbles in the garden area and all those fun pots.

:)Hugs!

So pretty Jeanne...I love looking at your garden! I love your new finds. My honeysuckle has gone crazy and is taking over the yard LOL. I have lots of hummers enjoying the blooms. They are a bit tricky to get a pic of though hee hee. I hope your weather settles down soon.

My day is a little bit happier seeing all of your beautiful blooms!! Love your garden angel, oh so sweet. Always great to find treasures, especially on sale! :>

Oh my! Waat a delightful garden! I love your flowers and your grass is SO green and luscious. I have a buried memory of pulling the ends of the honeysuckle and licking the sweetness out of them - - - your photo snapped me back 50 years to that one! Thank you! Thank you also for the support and kindness in your posts on my blog - I held your thoughts close when I was afraid. We got through it!!!

Fun garden decorations, Jeanne! Good deals too...always a plus. ;) Your flowers are really pretty, and I love the rustic look of all your barrels. Goes really well with your wood fence too. ;) tfs
