One of my favorite things about my morning ritual is going around to each window and opening the shades. Everything seems new as it is unveiled at the start of each day. So I am on a mission to turn the sights I behold as I tie back each curtain and raise each shade into welcoming sights. With careful planning, the view from each window, whether tiny or expansive, can become a cheerful vignette. Blooms & Views will be a regular feature on my blog. Each week or two I'll show a favorite view from a window in my home, a favorite arrangement made from blooms I have picked from my yard, or a favorite spot in the garden.
In the spirit of humility and to remove all pretense (a quality I detest. . .I could do a whole post on that. . . but I won't . . . let me just say that I hate it when I detect pretentiousness in myself or others...blechhh!) I have decided to show one photo in each installment of Blooms & Views of an area on our property that has yet to be arranged in a pleasing manner. All of hubby's and my spare time has been devoted to renovating the inside of this big old house, and although we are far from finished, we have decided we desperately need to turn our attention to the outdoors and do some landscaping. Progress may be slow since we will do all the work ourselves. But with a little vision and a lot of blood, sweat and tears, we can achieve our dream. I invite you to come along with me over the next weeks, months, (years?!) as we transform this old neglected former vineyard into a garden of delights.
