A PLACE TO SIT, INSPIRATION THURSDAY

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 someday, hopefully anyway, recreate it...enjoy!

As often happens, we find photos we like and somehow, they involve sitting areas.  For this one, it is just nice to see some pavers, bushes, and chairs under a tree as a nice respite from life.  We like how there is a little path that leads into the area with the chairs.

A good reminder, especially on a large property with lots of walking, to just have a place every so often to stop and sit and enjoy the surroundings.


Be inspired!

  2. That beautiful photo is an example of not using straight lines for beds, etc. The landscape designers are right. Straight lines aren't natural in the environment, so it makes me wonder why all houses are straight lines...

    1. This is a great observation. I did our fruit trees in beds in straight lines and of course the garden beds are straight lines but I think landscaping around the house and such should be curves and such. Good point!

    1. I understand. I have some plans too that I saved not sure when I'll tackle them but I'm willing to give it a try. Of course, 2nd Man said 'just buy some if you want them', ha. We'll see how it works in the end.

  4. Oh how I needed that quiet little vista today as I'm dealing with insurance companies who don't want to insure our home because it's a grain bin house or has alternative heating or the sky is too blue...whatever...yeah. Needed a quiet spot and the hope of spring. Thanks 1st man.

    1. Awww, thanks for that. The hope of Spring is something we all need form time to time. Good luck on the insurance, I work for an insurance company and I'm amazed at times what they won't insure that just doesn't make sense to me. There is someone out there who will, don't give up.

  5. lovely, those Adirondeck chairs seem to feature in quite a few (lots) of your inspiration pictures, and they are so comfortable as the back seems to be at just the right angle.
