I just LOVE this oasis of color in the middle of a field of green lawn.

What a beautiful way to showcase that tree, that would have otherwise just been a lonely tree in the middle
of a yard.  They built a flower bed around it, and even put a chair out there, I presume for a quick
afternoon rest, or a cup of coffee in the morning.
This is one of my favorite pictures and is something I definitely want to do out there.

Have a great Thursday and I'll see you back here tomorrow!

Love this. I'd love to do something like this on my property as well. I always love a bench in the middle of the garden. It gives a chance to truly stop and smell the roses!!!

I never thought about that, but it does literally give you a place to stop and smell the roses! We've got a couple of trees in the front yard that I want to put an "oasis" of sorts around. Well, who am I kidding, we've got hundreds, ha. But those are on the undeveloped side of things, for the immediate future, I think the front yard needs some color and this will be a perfect way to do it.
