White peacocks

Darling, if I win the lottery I would buy an estate in Santa Barbara and have white peacocks roaming about. Also, white swans for the pond( there would be a pond) and masses of white flowers in all the flower beds.
It is fun to pretend sometimes.

The grass is finally greener in my back garden

Well, we finally have green grass. We had our tiny area of lawn sodded so many times in last 16 years and it never looks good for very long. So finally I said lets do fake grass I never thought I would have fake grass but after mud and patchy grass I gave up.  It is not hard to do just time consuming and need lots of sharp razor blades to cut the grass up.
Pink Boy did a great job! As you can see in photo two my cleome are still in bloom lots of hummingbirds are in the garden all day long going to feeders and flowers.

I love old fashioned words like frippery, lolly gaggle,pox, etc etc I could go on. Just a few images of what I would term lovely frippery. The bracelet is Chanel photo by Chanel.  So chic. The big ribbon work tassel or perhaps it is a purse is sooo fun!
It has been so hot here I hate extremes in temperature. I actually do not feel well when it is really hot or cold. So I have neglected the blog lately also my world is a bit boring at the moment! No trips planned, no parties to attend, no projects. I need projects to be happy!

I love this time in the garden many things in bloom and my cleome ( spider flower) has sort of taken over a bit this year. The hummingbirds love it. I see a drift of pink and  white and to me that is so pleasing.
Hope your garden is making you happy and as always,
Have a Pink day!

Sparkly garden

Pink Boy just added this pretty chandelier to our patio area in the garden.  I can't wait to use it. We could also put real candles in it too. I have lots of votive candles around the garden hanging from trees and on walls of patio area but having the chandelier now will really be pretty. Hanging in front of the wall mirror will make it even more fairy like!!
He already put twinkie lights around the fence and over a few arbors.

Wrought iron gate

We need a pretty iron gate for our garden. Something like this would be nice. Searching for one at salvage places, fence places, flea markets, garden centers, so far no luck. I could contact a blacksmith do a custom one which would be nice but expensive. Any ideas my clever pink blog readers? 
Since the garden is Charleston in feel I think a wrought iron gate is perfect.

Swan planter from Louisville, Kentucky

Pink Boy bought me this huge swan planter in Louisville, KY. on our recent trip to KY to visit my family.  It was grey and I like black garden things so he sprayed it black and drilled a hole in bottom for drainage. It is cast aluminum. It sits in a semi shady area. I put mint, boxwood, dead nettle and salvia  and vinca in it. Another swan planter and the largest one.

                                  Swan obsession continues
                             Have a Pink day!
