I'm obsessed with "spring cleaning" right now! My daughter is moving back in with us for a couple of months, my MIL is moving to our farm, and the overload of everyone's STUFF, including mine, lol, has me motivated to weed out no longer used belongings... and to clean, clean, clean! Hoping to make headway before I run out of steam! haha! Your yard is gorgeous! Loving the lily pads in your pond! ...See you in the morning at Thoughts of Home! :) ~Rhonda

I am also very much obsessed with gardening this week. Summer is short in Colorado so I'm trying to get everything planted now that frost danger is over.

Patricia Krank said...

We are loving the outdoors too! Isn't this time of the year the best? Beautiful flowers Stacey.
Blessings,
Patti

Your garden is a lovely oasis.

I had to think about what I am obsessing on right now and it is "getting rid of stuff". I have too much stuff and I'm trying to use things that I've been hoarding, give away things I never use and use other things in new ways.
It's keeping me busy.

Thanks for sharing at SYC.

How wonderful that your son stained the fence! I love your water feature Stacey. I am currently obsessed with pulling weeds - ugh - never ending.

I'm obsessed with all sorts of things right now...outside projects (darn the mosquitos that drive me back inside!), planning indoor projects, purging, and finding things to make my visions come to life! Love your garden! The fence looks great. Enjoy your pretty space!

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Gorgeous...I would be obsessed too!!!

How nice to have water lilys in your pond! Beautiful pictures! I am obsessed with getting my gardens done and blooming. Soon!

Bonnie said...

Your son did a great job on the fence.
I can see why no one wants to stay inside. Your garden is so pretty. I am finding it hard to stay inside also. The heat is coming soon so let's all enjoy. Hasn't it been the nicest spring?
Have a great Memorial Day Weekend, Stacey!

Hi Stacey, I'm also obsessed with cleaning out my house of stuff I don't need anymore. Taking care of my gardens too!
I love your pretty flowers and the lily pond.
Hope you have a nice holiday weekend.

Stacey, your yard is looking beautiful and I know you must be thrilled with your new pond. Looks like a refreshing spot to relax and enjoy our beautiful spring. Thanks for sharing your lovely photography at Your Inspired Design Link Party.

We've been planting away. The herb garden is done, and now I can't wait to plant some more perennials.

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Love the stained fence! Your pentas are gorgeous too. Mine are in pots, but are doing pretty well so far. I just planted some angelonia. I've never had it before, so I hope it does well in our heat. Enjoy the long weekend!

And no one can blame you for being obsessed with your garden. It is absolutely gorgeous and I'd also be out there all the time. Your flowers are so unique and one of a kind. I'm a brown thumb so I'm very impressed with anyone who can grow things. Stacey you have given us much sweet inspiration with this garden that is a slice of paradise.
