Thanks so much to everyone who joined our very impromptu May Garden Party!
I loved seeing all of your outdoor garden related projects. As always, you are so inspiring! Here are just a few links caught my eye ...
My friend Chris blogs over at Red Gate Farm. Her lovely farmhouse overflows with vintage charm.
And her green thumb is always an inspiration. I can't wait to see these zinnias all grown up!
But what really struck me this time is this stunning photo of her 16 acre dandelion field. Seriously, who knew dandelions could be so pretty!
If you stop by Penny's Vintage Home, you'll find a garden filled with all kinds of whimsical touches, including furniture!
And when Penny bought a carpenter box at an auction, of course she put it on her porch and filled it with flowers!
Mimi from Blue Roof Cabin found a rusty old sprocket and turned it into a wonderful garden accent. I think every garden needs a little rust! And doesn't this photo make you want to see more of Mimi's garden?
Chris from Freckle Face Girl has a tutorial on how to turn a thrift store find into a sparkly solar chandelier. And don't you love her pergola!
You'll find tips on how to plant a window box garden over at An Extraordinary Day!
Diane also has nine steps to an extraordinary container garden!
And this is the classic story of how one thing always leads to another. Laurel from The North End Loft already had a gorgeous shady backyard. Just perfect, right?
Then a VERY large tree had to be removed and Laurel's yard went from shady to sunny in the blink of an eye. But instead of being sad, Laurel sees it as an opportunity to try out a whole new plan and she is completely rebuilding her yard. Can't wait to watch it all unfold!
This all just goes to prove that no matter how large or small, your outdoor space can be just as much fun to decorate and enjoy as your indoor space. And I hope it makes you smile!
We'll be back next weekend with our June Garden Party!
Can't wait to see what's happening in your outdoor world!
