Going Green!

Hello everyone,
It is another beautiful summer day here and we are busy getting ready for the garden tour tomorrow. I have been setting up all my little props to give the garden more interest. I am hoping it doesn't rain overnight but it is supposed to be a lovely day again tomorrow.
Anyway, in the process of setting up a nice little spot for people to sit and enjoy a glass of lemonade and cookies I thought you might enjoy a little break too.
Hope you enjoyed my going green and have a wonderful weekend. How I wish you could all come and enjoy our garden tour tomorrow!
I will take you on a photo tour of the garden soon.
I am joining in Show & Tell Friday at My Romantic Home again today- lots to see over at Cindy's again.
Thank you for visiting me,
Carolyn

I love the green and the touch of pink. Truly sweet, relaxing and yet sort of a giggly fun appeal to it. Did I say I love it?!!

I feel refreshed from the summer heat just looking at that lovely "green" spot and can imagine how good that ice cold lemonade would taste sitting there! The guests on your tour are so fortunate to have you set up little areas like this for them to enjoy!

So beautiful as always! You have the perfect eye for setting up lovely vignettes! Every picture makes me want to cozy up to a table, have some tea and just look at the garden for hours!

I love that color for outdoor furniture -- it seems so gardeny!

Brenda ~ Shabby Cats and Roses said...

Hi Carolyn, Everything looks so wonderful and I'm sure the Garden Tour will be a big success! I have to tell you, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your pretty green wicker! What color of green is it, if you don't mind me asking? I have a couple of vintage wicker chairs that are in desperate need of being painted, and would love to paint them this green; it's just perfect!

I look forward to seeing pictures of the tour :) Have a great weekend!

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Carolyn said...

Hi Brenda,
The color of the wicker is Pistachio green a spray paint.

Tara,a video is a great idea. I should try to rent one as my old one doen't work. I am glad you reminded me as I always regret not doing one to enjoy in winter.

Thank you all for your sweet comments.

Carolyn

This is such a sweet spot to sit and relax in the garden. I love the shade of green you used and I'm not a green person. Would you share the name of the color?

These pale greens match at the perfection the pinks and deep greens of leaves.
Definitely a must.
