Spring Blooms

This continues to be a very busy time of year as you all know. I have some pictures to share of the progress so far this Spring around the garden. The show stopper hands down is the huge Crab Apple Tree! It is amazing this year! Swarming with bees and filling the air with it's heavenly scent. It always gets my attention and makes me want to stop and sit and take deep breaths! I managed to sit and eat lunch so I could enjoy it today!
Thanks for all your wonderful comments about the Orbs from yesterday! They are beautiful!
Have a wonderful week everyone!

Not sure what else to call this creation. It is made out of an old rusty barrel ring with old rusty bed springs wired to it(-:

I drilled two holes for each bed spring so I could wire them on. It was a fun project to do and who knows I might make another one in the future(-:

I decided to hang it on my front porch so I could enjoy it when I come and go(-:

Hope everyone is enjoying a nice Springy day!!!

New Bottle Tree


The old tree finally rotted and had to be replaced. This is a lodge pole that I bought. It is treated and hopefully will last a few years. I washed the bottles and drilled new holes for the rebar posts.

I made this one a tad different then the last. I cut the mirror tiles more square and bigger. It was faster to do and I like the look of the frame too. The original mirror was from the Salvation Army. I sprayed it black and antiqued it. It is a hard plastic frame. I just mosaiced right over the original mirror. It hangs outside on my patio.

I also got a new bottle tree put up in the old ones place. The original peach tree finally rotted off and it had to be cut down. A new lodge pole was put in near where the peach tree was taken out and I am really enjoying it! I was sure to get a lodge pole that was not perfectly straight! It wasn't to hard to find one and I am sure the cashier was wondering why I wanted a tweaked one(-: I like things that aren't perfect as you may know(-: Anyhow I will take a picture when the rain stops falling!

Well vacation is over and I am looking forward to Summer Vacation!!!(-: There is never enough time to do what I want to do when I work.(-: It also seems like time really flies along when I am at school and that's another reason I enjoy Summer so much(-: I love to stay at home doing whatever I want to do(-: Some people probably think that is boringgggggggg but to me that is what makes me happy! Last year I filled my car up with gas one time, the whole Summer vacation!(-: Boating trips require the Explorer(-:
