FLOWER FILLED SITTING AREA 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!

The inspiration here today is color.  Just lots of pretty flowers with color popping everywhere.  I'm not sure we'll ever have anything THIS beautiful but it certainly won't be for lack of trying.  Now if the weather would just cooperate and not have a feels like of 115.  Ugh.  

Anyway, pretty flowers, peaceful setting who knows, maybe someday.  

Be inspired!

  1. What a charming sitting area! I love the blue bottle tree. I’ve been saving my bottles and want to put one in my backyard.
    Looks like these flowers would be easy to grow and maintain - appears to be marigolds, begonias, and Diamond Frost Euphorbia in the flower beds with petunias in the hanging baskets.

    Yes, the weather is awful - I can't believe it has gotten this hot this early. If it's this hot already, what are July and August going to be?

    1. I didn't notice the blue bottle tree! Ha, my old eyes, LOL. I love that. Thanks for the flower id too.

      OMG the heat is SO oppressive. I was out at lunch today and it just takes your breath away. Sigh August will be HORRIBLE.

  3. Beautiful! I love this colorful round bed, but I think it seems difficult to weed it :-)

    1. Yeah, they always seem so pretty but probably need a lot of work. But it is pretty for sure!

  4. That is very pretty indeed, and perfectly do-able when you are full time at the farm, you will be able to save the seeds of most of your annual flowers and get them coming along as little seedlings ready to plant out after the last frost.Some plants like Lavender can be planted out from cuttings, I have my whole front hedge planted from cuttings grown from a plant I bought 30 years ago and took cuttings to the last 3 houses I have lived in.
    Lavender is really lovely planted near the clothes drying line, your laundry comes in smelling of Lavender and sunshine.Almost every yard in Australia has a drying line, why pay for running a dryer, such an energy hog.
    Irises grow like weeds in my garden, they are so beautiful, check out what suits your area and you will have wonderful cut flowers, they multiply every year so you will soon have heaps, you could put some in now and get them off to a good start for when you live there.
    So nice to see the fruit trees settling in and productive.

    1. You know, that's a great point. We could set up the areas and have it ready for when we are there full time and can create it without having to go through the hard initial work since it would be done. Oh, we want a drying line for sure. I wish we could grow lavender but they are temperamental in our weather. Maybe I could figure out a way with some containers. Thanks for the info, you are awesome!

  5. I LOVE IT! I think this is the prettiest thing you have posted, or at least the most appealing to me. I love the repetition of the feminine circles from the table to the double border of stones. I want this!

    1. Aww, thanks. And hey, we might be "Two Men" but I think the world would be a whole lot better with way more feminine energy in control. :-)

    2. I know men who are macho, soldiers, straight or gay who appreciate the diffuse feminine energy in nature and the world. Men who struggle to remain macho and never show a love of softness are really a pain. A man who literally smells flowers, snuggles a particularly soft teddy bear for a moment or is not afraid of pink or holds a woman's purse without embarrassment is a whole person an evolved man.

  7. That is Absolutely Gorgeous. Love this setting and actually I have to admit; it's one of my favorites of all the ones that you have posted.
    With that little fountain and maybe a few solar lights placed here and there makes for a nice quiet place to sit and enjoy the beauty around you.

    This heat is something else. I have been working outside staining wood boards as we are making a 9 1/2 foot long picnic table for our daughter and son-in law.
    Everything is stained and sealed, just have to get it all put together now and deliver it them of which they know nothing about as it's a gift from us to them. Didn't do much on it yesterday as we went out and celebrated our 49th anniversary. so trying to make up today what we didn't do yesterday.

    We just need someone with strong muscles to help load in the back of our truck. Any volunteers? :}
