Heading Outdoors

It is April and it is the beginning of Spring! A bit delayed for me but  we will get there for sure :-) I am waiting for it eagerly. Sunny skies, less rain, flowers in bloom.......and my family out in the backyard!





Nothing like an old fashioned swing and a few books. This image reminds me of my childhood. One of the homes I lived in had a swing just like this :-)




Alfresco dining! I can't wait to barbecue outside and enjoy the glorious sun  :-)




This image is so dreamy and has such a laid back vibe!




Pretty lanterns.......you can never have enough of them. I am so tempted to go get some nice ones for my backyard . They may be impractical in rainy Seattle buy hey......... they are so hard to resist :-)

I am so ready for a backyard makeover! What about you? Are you planning something special to welcome Spring into your home??

 



Happy April everyone!

Love the swing and the books and alfresco dining. Think my favorite image is the first one ... the wind blowing the curtain through the arch. Lovely! Yes, it's time for a backyard makeover! Happy Spring!

All such beautiful dreamy outdoor images! We enjoyed a weekend of crazy hot weather (for South Dakota)we worked our fannies off cleaning up, tilling, mowing, raking, you name it! Can't wait for those leisure days of June hanging out in the hammock, and eating fresh strawberries! Mmmmm.

Great images to reflect warm weather and enjoyable times outside. Almost every evening now, I smell someones' grill.
Thanks for stopping by and nice comment.
Enjoy your evening.

I want to have a rustic picnic table like the one in your picture. I have always wanted to eat outside, but the bugs are so bad in Georgia that my husband will never agree to it:)Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I'll be back to yours!

lovely images and welcome to spring. I particularly like the image and the idea of ourdoor dining. We are currently renovating our patio area....it is a blank pallet at the moment!
Have a wonderful week and thank you for visiting my blog and inviting me to visit yours!
