An Angel in my Garden ~ Cottage Garden Party

An Angel in my Garden

I love my gardens! 
I love to garden and find it very relaxing.  I go outside at the crack of dawn and walk around....  the dew still on the grass in the cool of the early morning. 
I have the most wonderful hubby!  He is my hero.
Together we are a great team and have created a very lovely home.
Although he doesn't enjoy gardening as much as I do (planting, pruning & pulling weeds) he is obsessed with the grass.  He keeps our lawn like a golf course.  
We have an area under a big tree in our front yard where the grass doesn't thrive like it should.  It gives my hubby fits.  So.... I decided to landscape it.  I sent my husband to Home Depot for decorative rock and he not only comes back with what he went for..... but, he came home baring gifts!
A Birdbath and a Garden Angel!
It was the perfect size for the small area I had to work with.
I planted a sea of ivy under the big tree then placed a weathered bench and a lovely garden statue under it. 
Happy gardening!

I love it all, the angel the girl reading the book...and the pots and just everything...I'm a garden girl too...I love it early morning as well and late afternoon...just before the sun is disappearing...You garden looks so sweet and tiddy just the way I like it...I rent a flat and have been working on the garden for almost two years now...I just need some grass and bricks and I will be done...sadly the owner doesn't help...though he is putting up a gate so the upstairs people that let there children throw my rocks and tear my plants won't be able to go inside no longer...that's a big blessing for me...have a most lovely afternoon. with love Janice
