Backyard Blue Bliss...
As May closes and June begins I am very happy to spend time working in my beloved back yard. A few years ago Mr. C built a deer fence to protect this area from the voracious plant eaters. Now we have beautiful roses and other plants. This blue bridge is a gift designed and built by Mr. C for our Anniversary a couple of years ago. We waited twelve long years for this bridge and it was so worth the wait. I got to select the powder coating color and therefore have my beloved heartthrob blue to gaze upon. Thank you Mr. C!
This is my view as I stand on our kitchen deck. I never grow tired of seeing this beautiful view.
Here is the shadiest part of the back yard. I have hostas and my dwarf blue hydrangea. No little flower gems planted yet this summer as I have been beyond busy. We have been clearing and preparing our land for fire zone protection. Three giant truck loads to the dump in three days was a huge job but our property looks ever so much better. I am not showing photos of all at this time. Right now I am focused on sharing my little back yard I love so much.
Here is the other side view of our bridge and plants. Can you imagine this was all horrible construction ground when we moved in sixteen years ago? So much work we have done. It is good to review from time to time to realize just what we have accomplished.
And here is my very first blue hydrangea of the season. It is so beautiful and precious. My very favorite. The leaves got a little damaged from some hail we had earlier this month but the plant is doing very well in spite of her rough weather. This is a dwarf hydrangea and therefore the blossoms are only about 3 inches at the largest stage. Every winter the plant goes to nothing but some sticks and I always hold my breath for this very reveal. Mr. C gave me this from one of our local nurseries a couple years ago and I adore both...Mr. C and my Dwarf Blue Hydrangea bush.
I love spending time here and never mind the hours it takes weeding and primping. We are blessed.
What will June hold in store for you? For me I will be taking a blog break. Ah but not a sad one...I will have lots to share very soon. This will be a time for Mr. C and I to re-charge and rejoice in life! It was just a short year ago on June 21st that Mr. C was injured in his trauma accident. Thankfully he is fully recovered and we are sincerely grateful. Life is never certain and therefore it is important to cherish every moment and make wonderful memories.
Blissful Blessings to all...
