Outdoor Wednesday

Susan at A Southern Daydreamer is hosting "Outdoor Wednesday"



Please visit her inspiring blog for a full list of all the participants today.


I have posted some of my backyard! I hope you enjoy!



I took this pretty sun rise this morning! It was very pretty, so I pulled my car over and took this picture.

We just finished adding the deck and my husband built the bar! We sit outside every chance we get.


This is an Aloe plant my dad gave me from Baton Rouge, and it is blooming. I do love this plant when it is blooming.


Another view of my yard.




I hosted a bridal shower for a friend, and the weather was perfect for outside.


These are a few pictures of our back yard! Please don't forget to visit Susan for a list of participants.

Lori, what a wonderful yard and a lovely sunset picture! I'm sure you will have many fond memories with that new deck! We're finally starting to come out of the Deep Freeze this week. We've been chilly here when it's normally not this cold. Glad to see you are enjoying your time outdoors. Thanks for sharing with us! :-)

Happy OW...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Your backyard looks like a wonderful place to come and relax and enjoy. I did not know that aloes had blooms. I am so glad I learned something new today.
Blessings,

Beautiful yard and beautiful weather. We also have beautiful sunsets here on the river. Although it's frozen to death right now it's still pretty.

Your husband and you have created a wonderful backyard oasis. It looks great. And I'm so glad you posted about the aloe plant. It jogged my memory. I've been wanting to go buy one to keep on hand to treat burns. Thanks.

Blessings, Lana

Lori, thanks so much for stopping by my dish blog. I had a lot of fun hunting for all these things. I enjoy your posts so much, they always remind me of so many fun times with my children when they were growing up, and your home and yard are just gorgeous. Thanks. Hugs, Marty

Lori,

Your backyard was just beautiful! The deck was awesome. We have a deck on our home in Vero and we have some lovely memories from there! I hope you enjoy it!

Blessings to you!

LOVE THE PORCH! That is exactly what my hubby and I want! We have this huge concrete slab in our yard and I want the raised beds for flowers, the seating, and everything else you have. He really wants a fire pit, so we'll see about that (I'm for it, but we will have a baby in May...). I'm going to have to keep a shot of that porch for inspiration!

Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

Oh my gosh! I love your porch and bar. I showed my hubby and he said, "we need to do that"! Um, heck ya!

Kristen said...

Yours is blooming NOW!
Mine has never bloomed..but then I did almost kill it last year. I did get the midnight blooming cactus to bloom last year...very cool!

What a great deck...I'd be out there every chance I got too!

Kelly said...

Hello, It's very nice to meet you & thank you for visiting my blog! I'll be keeping in touch - I'm taking algebra at school right now, free time is scarce, but I promise to be a more active participant in the near future!

What a great deck!! It sure pays to marry a guy who is handy! I've never seen aloe in bloom...in fact I'm not sure I even knew it did bloom...it's very pretty!
