Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the world...to lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

J.  Here are the components of my front garden.  I added the birdbath yesterday.  Trying sooooo hard not to get ahead of Mother Nature!  All this lovely sunny weather we are having right now is so tempting though.
I really want to take a crack at the back garden soon with some pots of lavender.  I'm very lucky here in NOTL as we have a lavender farm Busy Bee Gardens, http://www.busybeegardens.com/ run by a darling young couple Melissa and Robert who have volunteered to help me select the right type for my garden. They also make all kinds of lovely lavender products and essential oils which you can buy online http://www.neobboutique.com/

I was considering painting the back deck, but after lots of reading about painting it, I've decided the upkeep might just be a little OTT.  So now, stain the deck or allow the pressure-treated wood to turn that lovely grey all by itself?  Decisions, decisions!
