Mom's retreat...


nope not my garden...
it's my Mom's and boy does she have a green thumb....


she has already eaten her first squash...

she has Texas style for sure...
love the new paint job on her laundry room door...


see her scarecrow is nice too...



her backyard is such a fun place to go...

 her morning glories are already blooming...
mine are just now coming up...
and we live in the same town...


 don't you love Mrs. Bear...
she is such a hard worker...

 the birds love their little retreat...

 a neighbor was throwing out this chair...
she grabbed it up...painted it yellow...
and uses it for plants...

 you want to swing a while???

has anyone seen my head???

hope you enjoyed the little tour of my Mom's backyard retreat...
want a glass of iced tea...or lemonade????

It's pretty obvious where your green thunb came from.
