Garden Tour Soon

Happy Friday.  Finally most of the rain has moved out and it is a bright and sun shiny day.  I have been working on my back gardens and deck and hope to finish up this week end and have a post for you soon.

We had such a harsh winter here in the midwest and no Spring to really speak of so having summer slowly start to come back has been great.  I have been excited to get out and create and see the flower garden coming to life.







This year I am adding a lot of old salvage pieces to the flowers like these old porch posts for hanging baskets and old chippy
beach chair.


Old Vintage night stand with plants.



Join me back here soon for the whole garden reveal.

Please come back tomorrow for Spotlight.  Susan and I have two wonderful bloggers for you to meet.

Have a great week end.

  1. Your hanging baskets are gorgeous! I don't know how they are so far along if you haven't had spring. We had a cool one for Texas so my pots aren't far along at all. But, we haven't had much rain.

  7. Oh my gosh, Kris. You have some of the most beautiful back yard/deck areas I have ever seen anywhere. I remember how beautiful it was last year and it looks like it is going to be even MORE beautiful this year-----if that is possible. What? I am going to drive all the way to Chicago and you are going to charge me a QUARTER to see your gardens? lol Hmmmpppffffff....
    Love it- That first planter is a spectacular combination. Glad they survived that snow and your vacation. xo Diana

  9. Just gorgeous, Kris! I can't wait to see the rest. I know it is going to look great because I fell in love with the flowers in the first picture. : ) The posts really add some interest, too, as well as being able to hang your pots off them.

  12. Wow, Kris, you didn't waste any time getting back into the swing of things after vacation, did you? It already looks great with the salvage furniture and architecture, not to mention the flowers. Those photos with the blue sky and trees as backdrop are outstanding! Don't work too hard...you'll make the rest of us look like loafers!

  13. Kris,
    Your photos speak of leisurely time spent in soft petals of beauty. You had me at adding architectural salvage ... Your plans for your well thought out garden, deck and flower beds are inviting and whisper kindness in all it's pastels. I last night purchased white inpatients for all my containers this year. Everything will be manicured English draft boxwood topiaries and white. I will delight in your gardens of soft pastels that invite emotions of a caring homeowner. I enjoy visits to your blog and always leave satisfied and happy. Thank you mon amie.
    XOXO,
    Vera
