a favourite rose in The Humble Bungalow Garden.
Those of you who follow me on Instagram
will probably have seen the latest addition in The Humble Bungalow Garden.
It sits in the "work area" of the garden where we keep big bins of potting soil, the stakes, wheelbarrow and our bin filled with firewood.
My clever husband made this potting table.
I had shown him one I liked on Pinterest
which was simply two sawhorses with and plank on top.
This deluxe table with shelves is what he designed and built!
I am VERY pleased and happy with this beautiful table!
I had fun getting things out of the shed and I made a trip to a vintage shop in The Cook Street Village called Kay's Korner.
With shop keeper Karin helping
we gathered together some charming pieces that will add ambiance.
The old broken pitchfork and shears that I have kept
for whimsical garden accent pieces are finally getting used!
The shovel will be great for potting and repotting plants.
Karin sold me this cute chair which I spray painted black to go with the metal bistro table that I have had for several years.
It sits on the small north facing patio
in a "garden room"
of hydrangeas, roses, lady's mantle, dwarf apple trees and hostas.
There was a knock on the front door as I sat reading my book
lo and behold it was Karin...
She brought me a gift!
Karin is a very talented artist and she makes cheerful whimsical greeting cards.
She made this sign for me to hang above my new potting table...
I knew she was one in a million and this just proved it!
THANK YOU KARIN

the former "star of the work area"
the potting table has taken that new title!!
Hope that you are enjoying your weekend activies...
There is a light rain falling here
we've been reading our books
spaghetti sauce is simmering on the stove top
birds are singing cheerfully outside the windows.
At this very moment feeling content and calm...
feelings are fleeting and temporary
golden moments like these are a welcome respite from the
horrific events that continue to occur in our world.
