Yard things

Haven't been posting very much lately because mainly there has not been to much going on to blog about .  
  There will be some more snow to come in the early morning hours so I did get outside to get some pots ready for planting.  
I purchased this walk up green house to start seedlings in,  It's  getting on in the season to plant seeds,  so I better get started.    Tractor Supply had it for $25.00 here,  so I grabbed  one before they sold out.

 
 
It'll work
 
the chair above Steve thought would look well in the garden area,  our anniversary gift for the yard.
I love it
Above -  we  purchased at a garden center in
Gordensville Va..       The gentleman said it was made in Devonshire England.    Will perch this on a pedestal
 
Not sure what to plant in the Swans or where to place them exactly
Will probably paint them a soft grey
Some garden ornaments sitting on the shelf in a shed,  will be bringing them out when the weather gets warm
I trimmed this lavender that is growing in this cement pipe for the last 4 years and it yields quite a bit of lavender
Another tree down in the woods
 
 
I need to somehow get to this bell on the pipe its sitting on up high in the yard,  little rusty.
I was told by relatives of the original owners of our house that the bell came from a farm in Chase City Virginia,   I thought that was pretty neat as my mom was born in Chase City and lived there for a while.
Well enough for now - til next time - Betsy

  2. Hi Betsy,
    I can tell you are ready for Spring and some outside gardening! The butterfly chair is wonderful, as is that concrete fruit basket.
    Your header is beautiful, is that light fixture antique? It looks like it.
    Have a great day,
    Gina

  3. You have lots of neat garden art to put out when the weather gets warmer. And you will be way ahead of the game with your seedlings.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and your nice comment.
    Have a nice day!
