My Outside Haven

Here's a little peek into my outside haven in the country.
Where I am learning to garden and hoping plants grow.

This is our porch, which my sweet hubby has built.

He also built the flower beds and stone walkway.

We have a great view from our porch, don't you think?

This is white phlox, it is so very fragrant!

Our roses are a coral color, and growing tall:)

It's almost dinner time in the country...

Burlap as the table runner, you know it's my favorite!

A place to hang your hat.

Tiny old rusty watering can to hold a name tag.

A little fancy lighting.

Place setting, complete with little bags for silverware.

Roses on the table.

And an old scale to add some character.

This is my gardening table, made from an old window.
I have old baskets on the bottom shelf for organizing pots and watering cans.

My sweet hubby added old door knobs for utensils.

Little corner with picket fence and pot belly stove.
Another great find from our last trip to Canton, TX.

Old screen window adds a little extra.

Old watering can.

White lantana

And my favorite flower of all, the white rose.

Thanks for joining in on my tour of our summer garden.
Hope you have a special outside haven of your own.

Hi Becky, I love your garden and porch. Looks so inviting! Will you be serving iced tea too? :-) I too have one of those white metal it. If only I had a pretty porch to put it on! Like your burlap theme and blog.

What a pretty table you set! I love the use of the old scale and the plates are so pretty too!!

Your porch is wonderful and I wouldn't want to leave it but stay and enjoy it which would make for not alot getting done!

Everything looks so great! Your husband did a nice job on the planters, porch and potting bench too. How fortunate you are!
