Cleaning Up The Garden

This was our patio swing last summer....I don't think I every posted my patio last summer....I hope to get my patio together on my days off this week.....the weather has been so nice.......It takes Hubby and I at least two weekends to clean up the yard for summer......I have some new pillows I have been collecting for this swing......
I spent a lot of time reading on this swing last summer.......
Romantic Country of course.....

a very dear friend of mine cross stitched the Precious Moments Pillow for me....
it is very dear to me...she passed away several years ago but the good memories will last forever.....

the flowers are from our garden last year....
we had so many flowers I even put them on
my patio to enjoy as well as the kitchen and living room.....
hope to have some good garden pictures to share next week.....
Have a wonderful day....
Hugs,
Mo :-)

Mo, I have a serious case of covet going on here. My goodness, I love that wicker swing and the brick patio floor. It looks so relaxing and beautiful. The flowers are stunning. Your garden must be a beautiful site! Are you good at identifying plants/flowers? Yesterday was adm. professionsal's day, you know, secretary's day, my planter has a blooming plant that I am curious to know what it is. I will have to take a pic and post it. Enjoy your days off this week and I hope you accomplish much!
Hugs! Mary

Love that swing! This year we're really going to concentrate on our outside spaces. We have a nice size pstio but we've neglected it. While we can't do anything major (like break out the old cement and get stamped concrete) we are going to fill in cracks and we hope to stain it as well. Your swing is an inspiration to me as I have an old glider that I know I can freshen up and floof with pillows.

I love your swing and the swag around it. Your whole patio looks so romantic and cozy. The precious moments pillow is adorable and I know it gives you sweet memories of your friend.
And your flowers...wow, gorgeous!!
