How to Make a Simple Flower Arrangement

Posted by on Jun 17, 2013 in backyard, garden | 9 comments

 I fell in love with my husband

in Mythology 1o1, my sophomore year of college.

“The Cute Mythology Boy” is still the love of my life.

Here is just one example of why I fell in love with him. . .

He travels from time to time.

On this last trip, he took along a couple of teen guys.

(He is a youth pastor, which probably helps that to make sense.)

It just so happens that there was a Pottery Barn outlet in the city he was traveling to.

He knows that I love Pottery Barn;

He loves me;

So, he took the time to stop and buy me this beautiful vase.

Pallet Garden Path

Pallet Garden Path

I am so thankful for Mythology 101.

I am so thankful that my advisor at the University of Memphis advised me to take that class in the Fall of 1991.

I remember nothing of the gods.

I was a bit bored by all of the stories.

But, I admired the “Cute Mythology Boy”

(as I referred to him to all of my friends)

every Tuesday and Thursday that entire semester.

I never actually talked to him. He was so smart. Early to class. Always prepared with paper and pencil. He even asked questions about the reading assignments.

I was only there to try to get the courage to talk to him. . .

(I rarely even had paper.)

The semester ended, and I never talked to him. . .

4 Ways to Decorate a Plain Vase for a Garden Party

Posted by on May 22, 2013 in backyard, crafts, garden, garden art | 13 comments

I wish I could invite you to a garden party this week.

I would make a fudge pie.

Along with some sweet tea.

I don’t know exactly how I would set the table.

I know I would use my blue dishes

and, my grandmother’s green glasses.

I have a few ideas on the centerpiece. . .

Hanging Birdcages from the Trees

Posted by on May 2, 2013 in backyard, garden, outdoors | 20 comments

I am not sure what qualifies someone to be a “crazy bird lady?”

I am pretty sure it involves mumbling to yourself. . .

feeding birds out of your hands. . .

and spending most of your days on a park bench.

Simple Succulent Garden in a Wagon

Posted by on Apr 28, 2013 in backyard, garden, outdoors | 16 comments

I like low maintenance.

I also like beautiful.

It seems that the two have a hard time co-existing. . .


Double knit polyester.

Vinyl tablecloths.

You get the drift. . .

But, on that rare occasion,

these two worlds collide.

Low maintenance.

And, beautiful.

One example is my potted boxwoods.

Another is,

my friend,

the succulent.
