Lookin' out my back door for White Wednesday

I took a stroll outside to plant some of my
violas and pansies and my shutterbug addiction
got the best of me.

Don't these violas look wonderful in this
enamel bowl? I dug it out of my potting shed .

I found this sweet chair when I went to my
booth this week to restock and tidy up. She was
calling my name...

How did this photo sneak in here?
This vignette is on my back porch.

Just loving these violas...

and the chair...got a little carried away with
chair photos didn't I? lol.

Remember my vintage bicycle that hubby
painted white for me last year?

I planted ivy geraniums and asparagus fern in it this year. I think I want to add a trailing vine yet.

This was my walkway a week or so ago... our crabapple tree drops it's amazing smelling blooms all over the paths and it is like walking down a rose strewn pathway. I love it !

don't look too close or you will notice the wire that attaches the basket to the bike... and the green plastic liner in the basket.

just love my bicycle

more petals strewn around...

I see some of the weeds I pulled are still in the pathway.
Just can't do it all...I am only one woman. lol.

Happy White Wednesday! Be sure and join
Kathleen at Faded Charm for more WW posts.

Flower strewn pathways full of blessings
are wished for you today...

Hello Sandi, oooh I love all of your flowers and the petals strewn about underfoot... so pretty! And your vintage bicycle is precious! The basket of flowers is so cute... can't wait to see the trailing plants you add... some pink Bacopa would be pretty... xoxo Julie Marie

What a beautiful stroll outside your door! Love the idea of a weathered chair to hold some flowers. I will have to be on the lookout for one in a yard sale! And the bicycle is just too cute for words, LOL.

Sandi, my sweet friend, I covet the bike ... would you like to give it to me as a gift?! Hmmmmm?!?!? Chuckle! And that filled basket of flowers is darling. I keep watching for one. Did you see my write on the chair we found two weeks ago enroute home? I added 2 watering cans ... one bright pink willed with flowers & a smaller yellow one w/flowers. Wowza!

Everything is so pretty, petal strewn pathways .. how romantic!

Have a blessed Mother's Day, sweetie.
TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

How charming. I love your chair, there was a chair calling my name today, but I was by bus, and it was storming outside, I figured "Oh well if it's still there on Fri. it will be mine."

Alaina said...

I love it. I have several of your ground covers in my garden and they are my favorite. That bike, oh my gosh, I have one sitting by the shed that I keep thinking of giving a coat of white. The only difference between yours and mine is that i have a vintage childs seat in the back. Have a wonderful White Wednesday.
