Woodland Seating

Well, I did not get everything done today that I wanted to. It was 90 degrees by noon and just too hot to dig any more. Instead I hauled out my two chaise lounge chairs, scrubbed them with Murphy's Oil soap and water (they felt sticky) and carried them out to the woodland area where it was shady and cooler. I took a book out there and sat and read for a bit. Notice that I also placed my driftwood in this area as a sort of rural sculpture piece. I also planted another whiskey barrel, carried a bunch of pots of calla lilly bulbs out behind my storage shed until they start growing and look presentable, and did some tidying up of the deck. All in all it was a good day. We had a short thunderstorm this afternoon which provided some much needed rain. It is supposed to rain more tonight.


  1. I absolutely LOVE your woodland area. I am so envious!

    We are in a new subdivision, on a lot that is only 64 feet by 120 feet. My only shady area is on the west side of the house. Needless to say, the only trees we have are ones that we planted ourselves - an english oak in the front and a sugar maple in the back.

    Your garden looks so peaceful, I love it.

    P.S. I am a quilter too ...

  2. Thank you, Mia. I do enjoy sitting there on hot days as it feels at least 10 degrees cooler. I actually have way TOO MANY trees. None of them are desirable trees--mostly scraggly pines. I have had to pay mucho bucks to have 11 of them cut down during the past three years. One actually FELL down (on top of DH's truck, no less)last year. On top of that damage, we still had to pay to have it removed! They are a mixed blessing.

  3. Oh yeah! Now that's what I'M talkin' about! AWESOME!
