“Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.”
If you have been following our Simple + Southern Sunday posts for the past couple of weeks, you have probably seen early hints of spring that are gracing our Appalachian foothills. The Japanese Magnolias have blossomed, forsythia is in bloom, and daffodils are everywhere! We have had a mild winter, and now we are enjoying spring-like temperatures…but I am not complaining! So, with all things spring on my mind, I can’t help but think ahead to beautiful sunny days spent in our backyard garden area! And guess what? It’s time to start planning…annuals, perennials, herbs, and vegetables! It makes me so excited to think of how my garden will grow this year! Join me as we dip into the archives and take a walk back through last year’s garden…and stick around for dinner, alfresco style!
You can see more of our garden here.
Last year was the second season of enjoying our little garden space!
The two story building is most often taken for a guest house, but it is Butch’s workshop and everything else space. There is a smaller storage building behind where we store seasonal decorations and a few items left over from my decorating days.
We finally had the pergola built for the patio last September. By that time, fall was approaching and we had a two week vacation planned, so this spring I have to get busy making it look and feel like an outside room.
