Blooms!


It's amazing how cold, hard, gray cement can add charm to any garden!




Little peeps blend in nicely.

Just plain blooms are fine, too!

Add a sitting area, coffee, magazines. . .

a bird feeder. . .

a fountain. . .
a feline. . .
a candle. . .


a fairy. . .

a sap bucket or two. . .
a poolside view. . .and you have the ingredients for a relaxing day! (Lynn, this post is for you. I wish you could enjoy this California sunshine with me!)

Ohhhhh my goodness Cindy, the outside of your home is as beautiful as the inside, these photos should be in a magazine, they really should.
I was scrolling down the page thinking WOW this is where I should be, I love the cement cherubs, fairies, angels, the birds peeking out of the flowers, oh just gorgeous, and you have a pool. Here I am looking at dirty grass and snow still, so thank you sooooooo much for posting this for me. Love ya :)

Oh Cindy,
I just found your blog (but think I've seen you in one of Fifi's mags???) - what I would give for a pool! Love the arbor - so enchanting. Where did you find the fountain? I've fallen in love with it (and your kitty too!). I'm going to look around some more tomorrow, as it's late tonight.
Love your look~ I want to go out and dig up my garden tonight, maybe dig a pool? Midnight decorating is the best!

Cindy, it all looks so lovely. Love the little cherub, the fiary & the peeps. Little things do make a garden, don't they. And of course, your little furball. Was He/she waiting to be let inside?
