Fun Monday

Our most excellent hostess with the mostess this week is the lovely Karisma. Her assignment is to show something that we made, and we can't show our children. Although in my case I did not actually "make" my children, but I am "making" them into the people they are becoming....but I digress....I will show you something I created. I have never thought of myself as an artist until the gardening bug bit me a number of years ago. I love to garden and I love lots of color in my garden. The following pictures are of my front garden. My back garden in under construction right now and is not quite finished yet.


So here is my creation.....my little oasis where I get dirty and clear my mind and commune with nature....Enjoy...




Thanks for visiting my creation....now head on over to Karisma's to see everyone else's creativity!!

Now that is a garden truly fit for fairies! Just divine! Thanks for the hug and for saying you would make me soup! I wish you lived near me too! I bet we would get up to lots of mischief together! LOL!

Gattina said...

That's a wonderful creation ! I don't have a green thumb at all but I love nice gardens. The fact of taking good pictures is also a talent !!

I have some Bloggy Love for you over at Memoirs of a Mommy

I especially love the first photo Alison, especially the window box. Love your garden color combos. Very serene. I'm a bit tired tonight, a couple of friends and I have spent the afternoon planting containers. Very satisfying. Hopefully you don't have to be in charge of lawn mowing as well!

What a beautiful garden! Sadly, that is not where my talents lie. I just have to settle for enjoying other people's, being careful not to touch anything with my black thumb!

Olive said...

I want that backyard! These are wonderful photos of your backyard that you shared with us. Thanks.

You have created such a pretty garden, I could sit on that seat (I hope I've got that right!) and just enjoy looking at the flowers :)

Molly said...

Your garden is lovely. I can see that this is a place to clear one's mind. Happy Fun Monday.

Aoj & The Lurchers said...

My garden really grows on a lick and a promise, I just do not have green fingers so I envy you yours!

Hootin' Anni said...

Stunning!!! I love the tall effect and then the roses...well, all of it. Great work.

Happy Fun Monday.

nikki said...

Beautiful!

DysFUNctional Mom said...

Beautiful! I'm working on my gardens too, but they're not picture-worthy just yet.

lovely garden - nothing like getting your hands dirt to free the sole.

Heather said...

Alison,

your garden is beautiful! I always enjoy looking at other people's beautiful gardens - I think I'm too lazy to do all that work. Very pretty!

Sayre said...

I wish I could keep stuff like that alive... My garden would be SO beautiful! Like yours.

Hi Alison,

Missing you, dear heart! Your garden is so beautiful. I can sense that it is a very peaceful spot and that you have worked very lovingly on creating it. Gorgeous!

Happy Monday!

hugs,
Debbie

That is gorgeous. It makes me want to fill a little area I have in my garden. Fabulous. :D

What a lovely garden you have! Like you, I shared some of my ‘gardening’ handiwork in today’s Fun Monday post at Small Reflections.
Hugs and blessings,

Your garden looks like such a great place for relaxing. I may come back here later to escape.

lisa marie said...

You garden looks lovely and I love your frog bench!

Something about digging around in the dirt is relaxing, even if it's just pulling weeds. :)

grace said...

Still making my way through the Fun Monday list. Your oasis is absolutely gorgeous and something I can really relate to. I just love being outside and working in my flower and vegetable garden.

Oh and you asked for the blueberry cobbler recipe and here it is.... :o)

we enjoy the special get away in our back yard, too. I almost played on monday - thinking I might highlight the hubby and the beautiful little pond he built.
