Farm House Garden Magic

Today is OUTDOOR WEDNESDAY at a Southern Daydreamer.

To me the yard at our farmhouse is a magical place. I wanted to share some of that with you.

A blue and white marble found early one misty Saturday morning after an overnight rain shower. From my estimations, it has been many years since a child lived here. Do boys even play with marbles any more?

The shade/woodland/magical garden:

The miniature rose I received for Mother's Day a few years ago:

Gerbera Daisies bought on clearance at Lowes:

Caladiums, pansies, impatiens, mint and more. Do you see the silver spoon laying on the rock? That was uncovered in this garden while weeding.

The garden Angel:

Roadside Daylillies growing in the front flower bed:

A pot of herbs with a "guard frog" sitting on the edge of the pot:

A side view of the fields early in the morning:

An old rusty, bent enamelware dishpan filled with herbs and other flowers. The overnight rain shower splashed dirt on the side:

Another "Guard Frog":

Coming in the driveway:

The Rudbeckia that I transplanted from my prior home:

I hope you enjoyed a little bit of magic today.

Oh Debbie this is wonderful I feel like I'm your friend and we just took a walk through your lovely gardens. Keep showing us more. I want to come back for another visit. :)

What a beautiful place! I bet the boy who left the marble out also left that spoon in the garden. My kiddos love to use spoons to dig in the dirt.

I did enjoy the bit of magic. Love the blue marble and the silver spoon you found. What treasures!!! I love the "wide open spaces" I can see in the background of your pictures. Don't you just love being in the country?

You have a wonderful garden with such gorgeous flowers. How nice to live where you have fields all around you. Makes me want to move back to the country.

Love your gardens, they look peaceful. I can imagine walking with a cup of coffee early in the morning taking in the magical beauty!
