Enjoying Last Spring

 Like so many of you I am trying to be patient and wait for SPRING.. Warmer some days than others here in NC, so hope springs eternal lol..
 I thought I'd post of few photos of my back patio area.  It brings back happy memories and increases my hopes of having another beautiful spring here..
 So now , just close your eyes and pretend your here with me.. I'll be serving sweet tea shortly:)

Put your feet up and relax.. theres a citronella candle on the opposite corner so none of those evil skeeters will be biting you..
I love crepe myrtle trees.  I have 7 of them in the front and back yard.. Lavendar, pink and 1 new  red one planted last year..  They are such a showy plant and I appreciate their beauty..
We love sitting outside in the evening and watching all the birds come in to nest for the night.. After dark, they are quiet and the cricket symphony begins..  Nature is so amazing and such a joy..

Thanks for stopping in to visit.. The door is always open and you are welcome anytime..

  1. Those chairs look awfully comfortable, Sonny! I am just starting to see some green coming up in my front beds, but won't be able to plant anything until Mother's Day weekend. Except maybe pansies. So that part of it seems a long way off still. Meanwhile I will wait on the azaelas, pear trees and my Kousa dogwoods to fill in.

  2. Your yard looked so pretty! I am patiently waiting too. I have some spraying to do.

  3. How lovely, Sonny! Gives me inspiration and motivation for my own outside spaces. Thank you! Annie

  8. Sonny, your yard looks like such a wonderful place to relax. Love that fabric on your yard furniture, and your flowers look beautiful! OOOO, you made me even more anxious for Spring to arrive! laurie

  9. Thanks for the break Sonny. I've had all eight grandchildren here for Spring Break and needed a moment to relax:) Lovely, lovely garden area.

  10. Sonny, I love the crepe myrtles- I live in CT and no one around here has one. I'm going to be planting one front & center in my front yard this spring-crossing my fingers it will grow. Your pics are inspirational. Thanks- Tammy
