Bench and flowers, photo courtesy of SugarCreek Gardens
The picture I found online for today is very inspiring to our garden.  You see, when "Ma" moved out, she left a concrete bench, very much like this one.  Only it has squirrels on each end instead of lions.  But there is a spot in the yard where I cleared some trees and it left a perfect little half circle of trees.

I'm thinking the bench, in that spot of trees, and planted with some Sweet Alyssum all around it, would give us the exact same look.

That's why I post these every Thursday.  They are pictures that inspire us to create something, and after all, that's what inspiration is all about right?

Today is my blog day off, so I'll see you back here tomorrow!

Have a great day!


  1. I use Sweet Alyssum in pockets between rocks, as a low border and in flower boxes

  2. Don't you just love the smell of it? It reminds me of honey. Plus it's just so pretty. I like the idea in between rocks, hmm, maybe I should do that around the cobblestone path (if I can ever get to that project).
