I can’t wait for this! It has rained all day today, really hard too! At least though it wasn’t the 6 inches of snow that was forecasted, people near the mountains got that.
So today I’m dreaming of this, sometimes I’ll read here swinging back and forth.
Oh, and this too for sure!
I did buy some pansies and so far they haven’t kicked the bucket yet, I do baby them though, right now they are inside in my entry because it’s only in the 30’s hereSad smile
Ahhh, my rocking chair, maybe I’ll use a different pillow on it this year when I bring it out.
I think I’m going to spray paint the table blue, I was going to last year but we had the wedding/picnic and I just didn’t have time, I think this year is time for it!

I fell in love with the blue when I saw Mary’s from The Decorative Dreamer table, isn’t it sweeeeet! Love it! Stop by Mary’s blog, she just put in an in ground pool last year and is making the outside of her home so pretty!.
This is an older picture of my potting bench.
I’m loven this green that I painted this bench with last year!
Really dreaming of taking a ride on our boat down this river,
and enjoying friends and family! Buster too of course♥
Thanks for stopping by so appreciate it!

Good Morning Rondell! What a sweet surprise from you this morning. Thank you so much! I say go for it on your table. It's only paint, right? You have so many pretty outdoor areas. I really love your swing. So glad to hear you did not get hammered with snow. I heard about that crazy weather up there. 30's degrees is waaaay too cold for this time of year. LOL! I hope it warms up for you soon so you can enjoy all those pretty areas you have outside. Have a great day...you have certainly made mine! :)))

April has been rather wet here, but the rain was needed, so no complaints, but I'm a bit fed up with it now! I can't wait for warm, sunny days to get out and enjoys the garden.

Rondell, it is 41 degrees here in Central Alabama this morning. I am freezing!!!

Summer will get here...eventually....

Your pansies will be okay I think.


Gina said...

Our weather is crazy too girl! One day it is a gorgeous picnic like day, the next freezing cold and windy. Pansies can take it, so your good. Have a great day!

Im doing the same with my plants too. Have to cover them and keep them close to the house, our temps are still frosting at night. Can't wait to see the new table color.

Jane said...

Perfect kind of day for dreaming! Won't it be great once the summer weather is here to stay (for awhile)!?! Jane

Gail said...

Oh Rondell I'm dreaming too and I love your swing. I want one for my front porch.

Hi Rondell! It will be fun to see all your outside stuff all dressed up for Spring and Summer. Those little girls are just gorgeous....the best decoration you have! xo Diana

I agree! I hope you're able to enjoy the pool and river soon. I really like the idea of a blue table. I think it'll pop. Of course I love all of your birdhouses.

Have a great day.

It has been cold and windy here too. I hate it! Just when I thought all of that was gone.... poof! It's back! My flowers are feeling a bit stressed from it too. My allergies have come back with a vengeance too because the ragweed is blooming now. Love your front door area. Everything looks very pretty. Pansies are pretty tolerant to cold, so hopefully, they'll be fine.
