Every Thursday, we like to post a picture of something we've found online that inspires us to do something similar at the farm.
Sort of our own blog bulletin board so that we can eventually look back and, hopefully anyway, recreate it...enjoy!

OK...the other day, 2nd Man goes "hey, I found something for Inspiration Thursday....do you think we could someday do something like this around the house at the farm?" and then he showed me this picture.
Hmmm...looks amazing, of course, and the farmhouse is kind of "nekkid" (that's NAKED for those of you not from the South, HA!). I'm not sure we could recreate this in it's entirety, but it's a template for something and that's why we save these pictures. I like the freeform nature of something like this. I'm currently started edging around the house and clearing the grass in what could be called "straight and narrow flower beds". Just a straight line, with landscape timbers along the front, to have straight and long, rectangle flowerbeds around the front and sides of the house.
We could layer like this in the space, or I could scrap the neat, long flowerbeds in lieu of something curving and seemingly random like this. We'll see.
Ain't nothing happening for a few months in this heat, THAT'S for sure, ha!
