This Spring has been exquisitely beautiful and mild. I just love spending time outdoors. The flowers are fragrant and the birds fill the air with their song. I am enjoying the beauty of the day and Alfresco dining is such a delight!

Enjoying the Beauty of the Garden Inspired by Monet.

I love art. I’m inspired by art and artists. This tablecloth reminds me of some of Monet’s beautiful paintings. This little corner of our garden is the perfect place to enjoy the beauty, fragrance and song.

The most fragrant flowers come from the amazing Magnolia tree. My neighbor has a beautiful one that fills the air with a sweet, lemony fragrance.

In the South we have three flowering shrubs that are sure to make any garden enchanting. This Lacecap Hydrangea we brought with us from our previous home. We actually brought several flowers.

Our garden has a vintage flair with some of the flowers having been here for decades – passed from one loving owner to the next.

This patio was set by a previous owner and at one time was the location for a well! 


We’ve had recent rains that have refreshed and restored the garden – the best way.

Seemingly overnight, the world turned green again. Trees and shrubs once dormant are alive – what Spring is all about. I love enjoying the outdoors as much as possible, especially in a beautiful relaxing setting.

monet inspired tableclothI’m not sure how long I’ve had this lovely tablecloth. It reminds me of the beauty of Monet’s artwork – It seems to have an impressionist’s flair.
