“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalms 46:10
I’m sure you all have that place that is known as your “little piece of heaven”. That place where your cares subside and the world quietens. I think in our rushed and busy lives, we all need a place of solitude to just get away from it all. If you remember last year, we did a complete overhaul of our backyard, and we just thought we loved it then! From bright zinnias to climbing foxgloves to the sweet aroma of gardenias, the garden has become our little haven. You have seen it on Tablescape Tuesdays, but today we want to slow it down a little and show you the details of our springtime garden!

“Gardening is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty, and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity” Lindley Karstens
I am hoping that I have success with the Foxgloves!
It is time to cut the pasture behind the garden!
The smell from the Daisy Gardenias is perfume in the air!
The scarecrow has a new spot…note the yellow-green foliage of the Sunshine Ligustrums!

Can someone identify this? It was originally planted in 2001 in our front yard landscape, and I can’t remember what it is called.
“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt” Margaret Atwood
I like introducing blue in the garden with the planter and the old garden chair!
