Thankful {things I love} Thursday ...

Our little English cottage garden ♥
I always wanted a white picket fence
My husband designed and built our fence
as well as our front garden
and bricked courtyard

a little sanctuary for us
and the birds, butterflies and bees
peony love
our little Sparrow Garden
filled with whimsy
plants for the bees
bird baths big and small
this little bird bath is a favourite tucked in amongst the peony
our pergola and fence always have a nest (or two)
nestled inside the honeysuckle and trumpet vines
and sweet singing babies
trumpet vine

and heavenly blue morning glory
window boxes enjoyed by our resident Chipmunk ♥
The true secret of happiness
lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details
of daily life
and elevating them
to an art
~William Morris~

Oh, Deb! How lovely! Here in this new home of ours, we are just starting to layout my cottagy herb and vegetable garden. My husband and visiting son put raised bed boxes into place for me yesterday. They are full of promise! :) (I think I may join you with 'Thankful Thursday' posts. Such a nice way to approach the week's end.)
