It seems like every time I go to the Spring Obsession or Fall Extravaganza, I find myself saying, "There just doesn't seem to be as many vendors as last time." Of course every time I go, my garden is even more full than the time before, so I don't really need much. This year I only found two plants to add to my garden. However, I found a number of garden art pieces on Wayfair that I just had to have! 😀
I love this piece. When Charlie (Jr.) was little, he had a playmate that he played with for the first 4-5 years of his life (until we moved) ~ her name was Sarah. They played together most days of the week and more often than not, when he saw her, he would give her a big hug and a kiss ~ usually knocking her down in the process. I doubt he even remembers it, but I'll never forget . . . so cute.
These are a couple of other additions - I bought two different fire hydrants ~ a shout out for the dogs. Of course they're girls and wouldn't ever use it, but I thought they were cute. Plus they add a little color to the garden.
And that's it. I'm pretty much done with the garden as far as garden art goes. Well - plants too. I forgot to take a picture, but I also added a large gardenia bush (I'm known to kill these too). But it's by far my favorite scented flower so I'm giving it another whirl.
Now as spring approaches, it just a matter of maintenance, maintenance and more maintenance. I am working in the veggie garden though, but I'll save that for another post.
May you find a little joy in every single day,
