Before you act, listen. Before you react, think. Before you criticize, wait. Before you pray, forgive. Before you quit, try. ----- Ernest Hemingway

You are Invited to My Garden Party

> Welcome. My garden gate is always open to welcome you to come in, sit, relax and have a cup of tea. Every year I open my garden to welcome friends and neighbors to a little garden party. I start my Spring planting in early March and by June my garden is in full bloom and ready for a party.
I loaded up my Explorer Sport Trac with plants in March and started my early planting.
I have evergreen foundation plants for year round green and fill in with annuals for color. The Lily of the Nile and Penstamin are green all year.
Inpatients and Foxglove add color.

My garden gate is open to welcome you and Friends and Neighbors in to visit.

My flag is flying

I have been looking for something to use as extra seating in my garden that would fit in with my vintage iron furniture and found a wonderful old vintage iron French day bed. I found red outdoor cushions at Wall Mart and pared them with some outdoor cushions I purchased from Pottery Barn at the end of last season.

Bentley, my studio assistant, is busy making sure the garden is in order for our party.

I just purchased the stripe outdoor cushions from Pottery Barn and lucked out as they were on sale and also I bought the last two they had.

"Nellie" my old vintage Rocket Bicycle is all decked out.

I found the old blue watering can at a flea market and love all the shades of blue.

Garden hats are ready to provide shade.

Geraniums are in full bloom.

An old fountain makes a great planter.

Flowers are on the table.

Petunias are blooming and their happy faces say "welcome".

Thank you for stopping by. I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, comments and those who are following my blog. If you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special, please leave me a comment or send me an e-mail.
I will be in my studio painting and will be on a little blog break next week.

Have a lovely week. Blessings, Erin
