Sunny-side Up!!

That title probably had you thinking I was posting about a delicious breakfast.  Sorry to disappoint :)  This week the members of this house have been plagued with fevers. It's not been a pretty picture. I thought I would comb through the pictures I've pinned on my Gardening/Outdoor Living board and post a few on here to sorta help cure the sick blues.

I'd post pictures of my own flower gardens if I had any.  Since moving here 3 years ago we have not really improved much around here as far as that goes.  I'm strongly considering taking the task upon myself  Did I just say that?  Sshh don't tell!!

My favorite annual is the red geraniums.  Being a country gal I love everything about this fun garden~scape. 

More Geraniums and those polka dot boots are awesome!

I've never seen a blue butterfly. Simply beautiful.  And against the yellow makes for a stunning show. God sure has given us a lot of beauty to enjoy!

This snowball vibernum is a favorite. I love white and all these large clumps of white goodness against dark green foliage is beautiful.

Before long these little specks of blue will appear in many backyards. Now that is a sunny-side up thought :)

How's this for some sunshine? Love it!

Proverbs says laughter is the best medicine. Lord knows we could use a good dose around here :)

This picture reminds me of my favorite book character ~Anne Shirley~ Some how this looks like the boat they used on the Lake of Shining Water.

A David Austin rose ~my favorite. Can you smell them? sigh

A common country scene that I never tire of.  Looking forward to having chickens again.

My thoughts exactly!!!

I have a thing for rusty things. Love love this pump.

Strawberry Shortcake Lilacs ~ a definite knowledge that Spring has arrived.  Makes me wish computers had a scratch-n-smell thinga-ma-jig.

Another favorite!

Can we say "punch bug" :)

How's this for some garden inspiration ~ neat idea.

Hope you've enjoyed this garden post as much as I have. It's nice to get lost in the beauty of nature and forget our aches for awhile.  Hope your week is going good.  Cheery-o!!
