The Beautiful Outdoors

I needed a break from some of the Subcontracts I have been writing at work, so I wandered over to  Look at the beauty I found:

 What gorgeous Hollyhocks!!  I want to plant some at the new house.  Maybe we will have a little shed and I'll plant them next to it!
 This lavendar swirl is just absolutely gorgeous!
 Pink roses abound!  I love the arbor.  I will have to show this arbor to hubby for the new house.
 These poppies and lupines are gorgeous together! I love the color of the park bench in the photo too!  I want that hat-LOL!
Lovely red roses and I love the weathered rattan chair.  Another gorgeous hat!
I could sit there in these rocking chairs and read or knit all day long!  Those clematis are just gorgeous!  Just amazing!!

Hope you are having a great day!!

Sherri, I saw a post a while back on Jenn's blog that scared me about posting photos from Pinterest and other sites.

Here's her post:

It really freaked me out and I tried to go back in my posts to take out things if I wasn't sure where I got them. Yikes.

Beautiful photos Sherri. I am looking forward to seeing you garden around your new home after you move in.

If only................I still had the time, and energy, I'd be working on getting my garden back to looking like this! It's in my dreams these days!

Beauty surrounds us, but often it requires professionals to keep it looking that way, sigh!

Happy weekend dear Sherri, and keep dreaming - your new home will be be gorgeous I know.

Love, Mary

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
