Spring Tea for the Garden!

Tea in the afternoon
this Saturday...

***A little update for everyone stopping by from
At Home with Mimi ~ I'm so happy you are here!
I'm sharing this post from our former home in 
California as it was my favorite backyard to date.


After spending  part of the early morning
then after a trip to Home Depot looking at linoleum
for our upstairs bathroom (decided not to, at present)
and adding more recycled cement pieces
to the garden pathway to the pool equipment
after lunch...

I like how the rebuilt pathway is turning out!

With the new improved pathway finally getting finished
there are new possiblities for new plantings to hide
the necessary but ugly pool equipment.
The pathway is now as long as it ever was before
pulling it up to run new waterlines for the roses
and the plants alongside the pool and up to the bushes
on the hillside.

I will probably get out there again Sunday afternoon
but in the later afternoon after a much-needed nap...
It is pretty tiring leveling out dirt and cement pieces
as anyone who has ever laid a pathway surely knows.

Planted some ranunculus to the pot where a lone almost petered-out single bloom of
stock is still blooming up top.

Today though I sat down and actually
just enjoyed being in

the garden...

Birds were chirping merrily over at the bird feeder
while our resident mallards were sitting along 
the edge of the spa next to the pool.

Constant water spilling from the spa over the ledge into the pool created a constant soothing sound in front of me while the
water fountain behind me burbled washing away the
stresses of life as I read...

Our old fountain... in need of a new figurehead
but still love the "old gal" even with it
falling apart...

And, for an hour-and-a-half,
no laundry,
no mopping,
no cleaning windows, floors, bathrooms, etc.

I just read...

Please do stop by and check out our new backyard at
our current home in Sanger, Texas!
Here is another view of our little garden around
Valentine's Day 2017 this year for you.
