Corner View: What Makes Me Happy

Puttering with plants
is one of the activities
that make me happy.
It relaxes me,
nurtures my artistic side,
and is the best exercise 
for the fibromyalgia
(at least for me).

Since this is our first spring in the farmhouse,
everything is new.
I'm mixing what they had
with new plants I've bought.

Back porch

A side yard

Front door area

Tomato plants
and more flowers
waiting to be planted

A fine example of some of the beauty the previous owner
left for me to enjoy.
And enjoy I do !

For more corner views,
head on over to Francesca's.
