Outdoor Wednesday


I am joining Susan at a Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday. This Wednesday I am going to try to catch up some more on my visiting and do some housekeeping on my blog. What are you going to do?

I had this concrete head in in my first home in Florida. I could not find a place for it in my present home. She needs to be sunk into the ground and have her head planted so we decided that she could work in Jack’s shade garden. By the end of the summer she should be just beautiful. A wagon wheel leans up against a tree.

We can sit on his deck and wait for hummingbirds. And if the weather cooperates there are a few pictures I would like to take.


Then we will go back to the cabin and look at the lake. There might be a sailboat race.


Have a great day!

Carol, Dean & I just love the head shot! Jack's back porch looks so inviting with a cocktail in one hand and camera in the other. I love the new header it's really eye catching.

I would never leave home if I had a yard like yours! I live in the high dessert of New Mexico. It is all about decorating with rock here.

Lovely! I'd like to while away a few hours in your garden.

Beautiful photographs, Carol! You have such a beautiful lake view from your lovely green chairs on your deck!

That concrete head is great. I always love a little unexpected thing in the garden - anyone can just do a birdbath. It looks like you've found the perfect place for it.

Tammy @ The Sabourin Family said...

Beautiful flowers! And I love the outter colour scheme of your home. Looks like a beautiful place to relax.

Hi Carol,
Gorgeous new header image, wow!
I love the photo of your deck, if it was ours I wouldn't budge all day.
A perfect place to sip iced tea & read a good book.

Carla said...

Can I come and hang out in your yard? All I have is gravel, cactus and dirt.... It looks like a dream!

Mary said...

Carol, I love the photos you chose to share with us today. The photo of the lake looks tranquil and remarkably restful. What a gorgeous view. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

Hi Carol,
It's always fun to stop by and see your wonderful photographs. Your deck looks inviting -- love the colors! It sounds so relaxing to sit and look out across the lake.

I hope you have an enjoyable holiday weekend.

Warmest regards,
