I love my little table outside my door. From the comfort of my chair I can bird watch and enjoy spring blooms. Sometimes it's a potting table, but I do wish I had a real one. The height is not ideal and can aggravate my back. Well, what's a gardener to do? You just have to work with it.
Above is my "goal" area this spring/summer. It's a tiny little water feature with absolutely no planting around it. I made it with a cast -off galvanized tub that we used to wash our dog in years ago. It's been in the ground for at least 10 years. It used to have a little pump which I hope to replace this year. It has a lovely little yellow waterlily that shades the water surface. I think it will be a fun area to work in, but I have no plant list yet. Some pretty hostas and ferns would be nice, and I have plenty of them. I wouldn't have to buy any. There is a lot of overgrowth around it, trees that we cut down but continue to send up shoots and honeysuckle vine galore. That's a real problem. I might have to get my nice strong son and SIL to dig it out.
My three day weekend is coming to an end. I will now be focused on Spring Break, which takes place in two weeks, yippee! Can't wait!
I'm participating in Mosaic Monday and Outdoor Wednesday this week. I hope you have a great Sunday. Thanks for stopping by!
