I'm Dreaming of Flowers and Water and Benches, Oh My

The beginning.

Don't look to closely,  I have three dogs and I don't like winter . . . so many piles to rake.

The corner between the house and the barn where the tumbled weeds and dust blew all year.  ooh, snakey!

Bad Jerri!
Still finding Christmas :)

The plan.  
Got any ideas out there, my dear, sweet ever so close blogging buddies?  Hum?  Must think zone 7, low maintance, native kind of stuff.

I don't know ....I am not a decorating person...but I am a coffee person. So you get it done and I will bring coffee and enjoy it with you LOL!

I would love to have a patio like that it will be beautiful!

Love the fabric colors, LOVE THE FURNITURE, Love the Help! Ha!

Native plants that I like - Purple Sage, Crete Mertle's, Fountian Grass. Not much but maybe that'll help!

Bench - I think the first one (black) would go best with the rest of the furniture...BUT I love all of them.

Fun Post...can't wait to see the pics! Praying for your talk on Thursday in Childress!

Oh wow! The fabric selections are awesome! I'm a fan of black furniture these days, so I recommend the black bench! Being that I live in Georgia, I don't know that I can recommend plants for you!?!?! :) Keep us posted on the progress!!!
