For the Garden – Tutorial Tuesday

I spent the majority of the Victoria Day Weekend getting my back yard into some semblance of shape.  There will be photos, of course, but that’s not what this post is about!

As you’ll see in the reveal, my backyard is a really simple and basic space.  A small patio, some plantings and very little else.  It will need ornamentation beyond the growing things.

Suzy from Worthington Court has a wonderful article about creating a wonderful outdoor space.  As time goes by, and I have less to do in the house, I’ll be using a few of her pointers.

Ellen from Ellen’s Creative Passage replaced her torn umbrella with a drop cloth.  Here’s the result!

Meredith from Wait Til Your Father Gets Home created a planter a whimsical, fun planter.  I think something like this is going to look terrific somewhere in my back yard!

Shelley from Sew and Dipity has a wonderful walkthrough on how to get your garden ready for planting.  I maybe should have read this last one BEFORE I got into the back yard!  Ah, well… I’ll know for next year!

I’m hoping to be able to show off my back yard/patio later in the week!  Stay tuned.

I’d really love to see your comments on the projects I do and the ideas I have.  I learn more from critiques than praise, but, honestly, I adore praise (and who doesn’t?).

Thanks for stopping by.
