OK...so the picture for my new blog header is actually from late May/early June, but I needed to see green growing things and flowers...lots of flowers!
I took this picture one morning while drinking tea and doing my reading for the day. It's such a soothing spot on the patio.
It's hard to believe, but I really don't remember what year we put it in...we were supposed to go away for vacation, but our oldest son came down with a stomach bug, so we decided to do yard work and let him recuperate in the lawn chair watching us (and telling his younger sister and brother what to do!)
My hubby created the design for the layout of the bluestones on his computer and then HE started telling everyone what to do! LOL.
Now years later, these are the lovely plants that surround it: Bee Balm, Purple Coneflowers, Native Raspberries, Butterfly Bushes, and Violets surrounding a pretty lantern. I love the way the early morning sun touches the tops of the flowers.
In the background is the playhouse my hubby built for our kids when they were small. I can't wait for grandbaby Jack to start exploring our yard.
So many precious memories here...and many more to come!
My positive thought for the day while Caitlin Mulchay and Jack Gannon...aka Doc Gannon...nudge me to get back to work on their story...One Day in Apple Grove...book 2 in my Small Town USA series!
Every day is a gift...embrace what is precious is your life!
