Fun In The Sun

It's Outdoor Wednesday at A Southern Daydreamer again.

This blog party is so much fun. I promise it has some of the most wonderful ladies out there in blog land. Please stop by Susan's blog to visit and I promise you will make some wonderful new friends. Thanks for stopping by and visiting us in the pool!!


Last week I took a vacation trip of my dreams via the Internet. This week we were back in Georgia in the backyard pool again. One of our favorite places to be I must say. Please pardon my weeds. I've been avoiding the slope but I think it's time to get digging in there before the weeds take over my roses. Aren't they pretty though?

This shade of pink is one of my most favorites. I have a favorite cobalt blue vase and these roses look stunning in it. A girl needs her roses doesn't she? I like to keep some fresh flowers in the house so I like to grow some pretty foliage also to mix in with the roses.

Brandon (the oldest) is looking devastatingly handsome here don't you think? Actually, that is my nickname for him. Handsome, he hates it but being a boy I expect that. Y'all I never put on a stitch of makeup yesterday so please forgive.



Doesn't the water look inviting? That Mr. B, doesn't he just get cuter & cuter every week? His eyes are as blue as the pool water. I love my sweet darlings. The oldest is not here for the party this week. She is visiting her dad in Palm Bay Florida. He is getting married this Saturday. I hope she is having a good time!!

Poor ole Braxton, he was so tired after 2 hours of swimming and the hot GA sun he could barely keep his eyes open. That sweetie poo fell asleep dead to the world for 2 hours. Braxton is standing here on the back porch that I am just dying to re do. I am going to do my best to finally get around to decorating this bad boy. I have some practically new drop cloths that I have seen people use as curtains so I am going to give that a go this week. What the heck right? My entire family room's back wall are these tall windows with the french doors in between and it's so open I'd like this to look much nicer than it does. I hope next week to have some great photos of the transformation. I can't spend a dime on it so everything has to come from the house. I will be able to cheat a little...... I had to close my gift and home decor store in Jan. so I have some things still that I can use out there. Some beautiful tall vases and such.... I'm telling you all this so I will feel like I have to do it now or y'all can feel free to get on to me next week if you don't see any cool new pictures of the back deck okay?

I always enjoy Wednesdays and visiting with all of you from Susan's blog party. You ladies are so much fun and so creative. And frankly, you are killing me to plant some Hydrangeas and lilies. Oh it's torture to look at all of your beautiful flowers every week!! Us GA bloggers need to have a "Cuttings" party. Wouldn't that be fun?

Love y'all,

Jennifer

You have a wonderful family and your pool does look very inviting. Your roses are gorgeous. Will you have a second flush of bloom in the early fall? Have a wonderful day.

You are a smart cookie--there is no better way to wear out a bunch of children than with a pool! But I think it is so great you are there with them--curtains can wait; children don't :)
