It's possible I may be the most lame person on the planet.
If I am, I apologize for that.
But I can't help it....I get easily excited, especially in Spring.
And yesterday was a very exciting day for me.
After much drama at work (don't even ask....) I pulled into my garage ready for nothing more than a cocktail and a walkabout.
Instead I found that Sweetie had been busy working on a surprise for me.
He's awfully cute that way, I must say!
What was in my garage that got me so excited?
Sweetie snuck over while I was at work and put together my new swing - woo hoo!
My dear friend Brenda, I think you need a swing on your patio - it will change your life!
Of course this morning I had to have Sweetie help me carry it over next to my garden cottage.
He wanted to wait until this evening.
But I couldn't wait.
So he kindly swallowed his frustration and helped me carry my beautiful new swing into place and I enjoyed my first cup of coffee on it this morning.
In my fuzzy lavender bathrobe with a red puffy down jacket on over it and my green Sloggers.
Yup, quite the sight.
This is why I must live far away from other people. There's no way I could live in a proper neighborhood and wander around in that getup.
Anyway, I digress.
So, you may remember that I am planning on putting in a nice little flower garden near the rock wall. And some plantings around the cottage itself. And climbing roses growing up the cottage. And possibly some fairy lights. And windchimes. And maybe a water feature.
I still haven't worked out all the details but it's milling around in my brain.
One of these days....most likely in the wee hours of the morning when I can't sleep....the solution will come to me clear as a bell.
For now, I'm still collecting plants.
The roses are on order, as are some other perennials and shrubs.
And on Tuesday evening I picked up some more Peonies in Lowe's when I was off the mountain top.

Did I ever mention how much I absolutely love peonies? They are truly one of the most glorious flowers with such an incredible fragrance.
I was a little disappointed to find out my new garden had only one peony growing in it.
Well, now it's going to have 10 more.
I just love the view out my bedroom window....and it's getting better and better every day.
Just wait until there are flowers galore around that little cottage.
And hummingbirds. And happy bumble bees.
That's the stuff dreams are made of.
At least my dreams.
What do you dream of?
