Relax...


My Mother's Day gift this year was two unfinished Adirondack chairs. I was so excited, had wanted some forever. But what a dilema I faced. What colors to choose? I knew I wanted bright and after seeing the bright green ones out at Farmhouse Funk, I chose green for one. Did I want them both the same color or different colors? Coral? Red? Blue? White? Aqua? The list could go on and on. I finally went down the dark dank steps to our dungeon basement to check out what was in the towering stack of paint cans down there and ~ Lo and Behold ~ I came across this Harmony Violet left over from Shilo's room. A different matte than my green but a spray can of polyerethene took care of that right away. While painting I couldn't decide if I was going to like the purple, but after finishing them I believe that I do. Sit down and have a glass of Orange Rosemary tea with me...



This is the view from my darling little chairs. I know you're not supposed to speak ill of the deceased, but my flower bed is doing so much better this year without Hannah bouncing on it. (I'm sorry, Hannah, we miss you and know you have lots of pretty flowers to bounce on in doggy heaven. Who's a good girl? Yes, you are!)



Look how pretty my chives are this year. They are providing a nice landing space and a good meal for the local bumblebees. I should probably get out there and do a little harvesting so they will continue to bloom. Sour cream and chives are your potato, ma'am?


Chammomile that has re-seeded itself from last year. I just love these delicate little blossoms. They kind of have an apple scent, and make the most delightful tea!

May you all be blessed with a relaxing garden view...

You picked such great colors, they look great together, I would like to go and have tea with you, it looks like a beautiful day, we've had lots of rain and cold weather... :-)

I love your chairs! You know I have a chair fettish. I think chairs should be sitting all over the place, just incase you have a moment to relax in the sun, or the shade.

Is that color a blue or a purple? Looks purple on my computer screen. But anyway, the chairs look really great and I have to add that the color combination of green and what appears to be a purplish shade at any rate would definitely get high marks from my son too! Same colors as is his beloved old Volkswagon that he rebuilt!
