Anxiously Awaiting Summer

I just love Day lilies. My mother in law and I dug these up along the roadside at the front of our property three or so years ago. They have multiplied a great deal so I have transplanted small sections all throughout my flower beds.
I seem to have the most luck with hanging baskets of ferns on the front porch. We get full sun most of the day and these seem to hold up pretty good.

This is my flower bed on the left side of the house facing the front. Fresh mulch sure does have a way of making the flower beds look better doesn't it?

We re-stained the side deck a warm butterscotch color and I just love the way it turned out. The deck furniture also got a fresh coat of brown paint as well. It saved on having to buy new furniture if nothing else.

Just another view of the deck. See that 5th wheel in the background? I personally can't wait to get out in that baby and start doing some camping. More on that subject later.

Well that's all for now. I hope these bright and cheery summer pictures will help perk up any fellow bloggers that are tired of the cold and dreary days we have been having so far this Spring. I am so ready for summer and all the beautiful colors it brings with it.

Warm Smiles,
