Color Me Happy...

I've always thought of our home as my haven. A place to unwind, rewind and just be at peace. Over the years I've added a few things  to make it even more of a happy place. A rose here and there, some sweet bush, flowering Spring bulbs. This year, I've found myself adding splashes of one of my favorite colors on many things. I love the way it compliments all my beautiful flowers.

The little bench that Ken built me looks so sweet with its coat of bright turquoise paint all tucked in next to the blossoming Weigilia...


See that big pot tucked in behind the bench? I painted it a great shade of bright green and now it's just waiting to be filled. I'm thinking something with a touch of orange. Has to be a shade plant of some sort since it's tucked behind the bench and under the blueberry shrubs, so I'm still looking. Any suggestions?

The roses that I planted on each side of the front porch are blooming like crazy and this year are even bigger than in years past...


Makes sitting on the front porch on a warm evening an especially fragrant  event.

On Mother's Day, I woke up and glanced out our french door to see what the weather was doing. I'm practically blind, but even without my glasses, I could see the bright blue of my new chairs...


Talk about a squeal of delight when I looked out and found not one, but 4 of the vivid turquoise chairs that I had wanted so badly. My sweet husband had snuck them home, hidden them in the garage for a few days and then got up at day break (in stealth mode I'm sure though I'm not sure how with 2 noisy little dogs on his heels) to set them around the fire pit so they would be the first thing that I saw when I woke up in the morning. Have I mentioned how much I truly love that boy?

All these bright punches of my favorite color make me smile. Funny how something as simple as a color can do that. How about you? What are you adding to your garden this year?

Wishing you bright happy colors this lovely May morning,
