There is nothing like a gorgeous spring day in Alabama, especially if you can enjoy it in a backyard such as this one. My friend Evelyn and her husband love digging in the dirt — and it shows. They created this backyard paradise from scratch, and it’s the perfect spot for some peaceful reading and bird-watching — two of Evelyn’s favorite pastimes. (She is one of the few people I know who gets excited about seeing things such as a broad-billed hummingbird, which is why I love her so much.) There’s also a lovely screened-in porch perfect for relaxing. In fact, I think I need to go over to Evelyn’s house right now for a dose of stress-free garden serenity. Y’all come, too!
That is lovely!!
What an inspiration!
I know! Evelyn has the greenest thumb of anybody I know.
wow, i’m totally inspired – if the weather holds out this weekend I will be in my garden for sure! I’m so glad you stopped by my blog – what a great layout you have here, look forward to reading more.
Your friends has alot to be proud of with starting from scratch. Gardens are hard work and it’s continuous. I speak from everyday experience. But there lies the fruits of our labor; the flowers, the outdoor air, the peacefulness.
Thank you for sharing!
it’s going to be months before it looks like that here. and even then it won’t look like that.
