I have been working on the yard yesterday and today. The weather has been so nice to get some of my planting done.  I thought I would show you a glimpse of the transformation.  In about another month the flowers will have filled in so nicely and it should be looking pretty sweet.

I get a lot of sun all afternoon until sunset so these flowers will do really well with direct sun.

My old cottage nest door and an old chippy white box that I had the hubby attach to the door for a flower box.  I love the old chippy architectural elements in the garden.
I love birdhouses everywhere and this cutie I found at Home Goods and attached it to an old stair column.

One of my favorite things in the garden is this old chippy door.   I am loving it on my front door with a flower bag of white petunia's.

This is that old chippy barn door table I got at the flea market a few weeks ago.  I am making this into a potting table in the garden.

I love my old painted birdhouse out by the tree this year.
his year there is the scare of impatiens being attacked by a mold that instantly kills and there is no prevention.  It started out east and is on the move.  We could or could not get infected in the mid west so instead of my usual impatiens I opted for yellow petunias.  I always loved the way impatiens mound and by July look like lovely flowering bushes.  I just could not take the chance with the threat of that mold coming  our way. It is an airborne mold and I would be sick to have all my impatiens die instantly this summer. So petunia's it is for this year out around my tree.

The perennials along with all the annuals will soon fill in nicely all together.

My bike is ready to go!!!! In about a month the baskets will be overflowing with pretty vines and flowers.  I will love when the over flow starts to hang down over the bike tires.
Loving my bike.
Even my little cherub is loving all the pretty flowers.  My Robins love to swim in this birdbath.  They are so cute when I water they love me to spray them with the hose. I have never seen birds that love to be sprayed with a hose!!!! They are funny little creatures.

Well there you have it the summer house is beginning to bloom FINALLY!!!!! Oh it was so nice to get out in the yard and play in the dirt.  My back and muscles are so feeling it but it was totally worth it.  Hope you had a great week end where you are.

Sneak Peak at some of the backyard planting.
This is a work in progress still lots to do back here.

Started some of the decorating on the deck with an architectural piece.  The old garden gate that I had hanging in my guest room is now part of the garden decor. I have to paint that rusty bird feeder. Ignore that in the picture!!!!

Got all my old vintage watering cans lined up and ready for use.

Gotta have a little romance in the garden.  This candle chandelier is perfect.  As you can see my bushes are just starting to bud with the icky spring and long winter we have had here.  Hopefully in the next month they will be full and green and full of flowers.

I love to have birdhouses through out the yard.  My birdie friends like the B&B too.
Starting to get my space ready for summer.  Got the chair out and my table.  I have a pretty chandelier I am going to have the hubby hang over the table  for romantic reading on the deck.n

Got the hubby's firetruck out by his shed.  I need to find a pretty plant to put in it.

These my friends are the greatest chippy posts ever.  I got these a year ago at Elkhorn Flea Market.  The hubby is going to make something special with those babies later on for the back gardens.  Stay tuned for that upcoming feature.

Well still a big work in progress for the backyard.  That might take some time to get it where I want it.  Glad you had patience to get through this post.  It was a long one.  Thanks for coming by.
