Backyard Dreaming...

We are so excited about our (probably too big for us to maintain and get a grip on) backyard.
Can't wait to get back there and plant some color and hopefully by next spring have a start on a big garden.
The former owners already have it looking pretty good.
Hoping to keep the plantings alive and growing.
 I dream of lots of color...
Whimsical garden settings with old chairs and birdhouses...
This photo and the one below are from: http://www.funkyjunkinteriors.net/
 Don't you love this porch. Dreamy...
 Hopefully somewhere in our garden we will have some Purple Sage. One of my favorites...
 And a swing in some quiet corner of the yard...
 A fire pit for roasting marshmallows over in the fall and winter...
Hummingbirds on a feeder...

 A cool pallet table...
 A fountain and pool. Oops, that is not in the budget unfortunately. Sigh...Maybe a fountain.
 Oh, there it is...a happy gurgling fountain.

Curtains on the end of the porch with a swing and colorful pillows...cheerful.
 A tea cup bird feeder...
 Lots of Bluebonnets...
Yes, even a garden gnome. Yes.
 A sweet little Golden doodle puppy. I can dream...

What would be in your dream backyard?

I am so glad to know what that purple flower is called...someone down the street has those every year and they seem to do well in shade. Gotta get me some Purple Sage!
I pretty much have my dream back yard, but just wish I had a gardener to help me with it about now...gets so hot and I lose interest!

I hope at least some of your backyard dreams come true for you!
