It doesn’t get much more fun than this

Last summer I had the front steps fixed in my cottage, built in 1944; a new front door installed (donated from a friend’s home that was being torn down), demolished the old grass in the front yard and planted wildflowers.

This year I’ve just been planting some annuals and am waiting for the wildflowers to bloom. But I’ve also added a rain barrel to my garden, a gifted Rain Goddess (she looks Egyptian, but I’m sure it rains in Egypt sometimes?), a garden 4 directions sculpture and a potted plant or two.

It’s been a very cold, wet spring here in Central Oregon (I wonder if that Rain Goddess has something to do with this?) and just yesterday did the sun begin to do its summer thing. Soon the wildflowers in the front yard will be running rampant like teenagers without a curfew, and all the flowering potted plants that have been waiting impatiently for the sun will be yelling ‘Look at me!’

Here, then, without further ado, are a few scenes from my front entry way and yard, complete with the front vegetable garden, new clematis plants, tomato planter and upside down tomato thingy. You’ll notice that the wheelbarrow is still out, so there may be more happening. We’ll just have to see. It’s an organic process, as I’m sure you gardeners know.

Hope you enjoy my front yard and entry as much as I am! I just had a beer and sat out in it and smiled! Come on over for a sit, a laugh, some silence and a glass of lavender lemonade or an ice cold beer!
