A Favorite Back Yard Purchase

 

Almost everyone has a favorite purchase made for the backyard or patio.

Mine is a fountain.

 One late fall, before winter hit, I bought it at Home Depot.

 My late hubs, God bless his soul, put it together and then got it all wrapped up for winter.


 It was not until the following spring that he got it up and running, much to my heart's content.

 The fountain is one of the best purchases I ever made. 

It has brought me immense peace and contentment.

I love to sit outside by it and listen to the trickling water and hear the songs of all the neighborhood birds.

 This past Mother's Day, my daughter and SIL gifted me with a humongous deep pink petunia plant.

 It looks divine in front of the beautiful fountain and I am so deeply grateful.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING IN YOUR YARD OR ON YOUR BALCONY?

The petunia plant looks very pretty next to your fountain. I just bought new patio cushions and a new navy blue umbrella for my patio table outside and I can't wait to go out and enjoy the sunshine which we have daily here in So Cal.

Good Afternoon, Susan, I adore your fountain. I would love to sit nearby and hear the water trickling and the birdsong, I know it is really special to you since your late hubs set it up for you. The flowers from your daughter and SIL are so vibrant and full. They are lovely next to the fountain, Currently I am enjoying the blue bird house outside my kitchen window. I love seeing the blue birds come and go caring for their young, Hugs and prayers, Mildred

Your petunia plant is so pretty, Susan, and such a vibrant color. And the fountain adds charm to your backyard. Anything with flowing water always brings peace, whether it's a fountain or brook or stream or river. I think that's why I like going to the creek. Well, I'm just settling in here and pulling weeds, but I do want to plant a rose bush real soon. I did bring along the stone with me that I love that says, "No matter where you go, God goes with you." I like the brick area in your backyard. Enjoy that beautiful petunia plant.

I love when the weather warms so I can sit out on my metal swing and read. Your flowers are gorgeous!
