Garden Lady

H and I have been having so much fun working in the yard this week.     We added a little whimsy to our flower bed this morning by constructing a garden lady.   She is a duel purpose garden lady....she is also a cat!

We went to Canton for trade days over the Easter week end.   I found a mate to my yard sale chandy that I have had several years.  We hung them on each side of the porch this morning.

The rose plants in our yard are putting on lots of blooms......

I took some pictures as we constructed the garden lady.   We used a wicker chair that has seen better days......some scrap lumber.   a ceiling tile makes a new seat.....and a bag full of leaves makes a cushy lap.

I removed the pink geranium  silk flowers from the window box.      

H cut me some snow ball stems and I made a live floral design in the window boxes.     After the photos,   I will bring the stems in and put them in a vase to enjoy.

We are going to the nursery Saturday to pick up flowers for the window boxes.

Here is a close up of my "new" chandy.

I think Punkie is about to take one of his many naps.........


  1. Your kitty looks quite happy sitting there on the garden lady's lap. Your new Chandy looks great; how nice to have found a second one. The flowers in the flower boxes are very pretty. You have so much in bloom already.

  2. Your garden is so charming! I love that your kitty is sitting in the garden lady's lap! How cute!

  3. This is just the cutest! I love your ladies. I am sure you got lots of good ideas from Canton!
    I wish I lived just a little closer to it. It is about a 4 hour drive from here. Your kitty looks comfy!
    Have a good night. Leticia
