Outdoor Wednesday…. Somewhat Southwest



Yay! I’m happy to participate in Outdoor Wednesday again! :)  Please visit the lovely Susan @ to see other participants’ outdoor lovelies.

I’d like to introduce mr sunshine.  He is on my outside wall in front of my house.   As you can see.  A bird has started building a little nest in the mouth.  lol 


I love these pots.  They’re huge and sooo outdoorsy looking! :)



Check out these Red Yucca!  And of course the rocks in front of them. :)  We just planted those today. :)  Someday they will be big and tall. :)  Our grass is barely starting to green up.


I love these recycled tree stumps.  We placed them in front of 2 trees we have out front. 



And last but not least.   I also bought these 2 ferns today!  They are huge and only paid 5.88 per fern!  This one is mine and the 2nd picture is for my mother-in-law for Mother’s Day. :)



Well I hope you guys enjoy my pictures that were mainly southwest.

Yes, I did enjoy looking at your photos of your outdoor scenes at home. The pots are great and so are your new plants.

Hi Sandra. How sweet that the birds are nesting in Mr. Sun. I love the big urns - especially that you have one laying over. Looks great! You can't go wrong with asparagus fern. When the heat of the summer really kicks in it just keeps going strong. I usually have it mixed in all over the place.

Hey Sandra, great pictures of your yard, and a fantastic buy on the ferns. Thanks for stopping by my place.

Hello, I love your sun and the birds building a nest is so cool. The pots are so pretty , thank you for sharing.

Sandra, what great outdoor accessories! Love that old wood. And your asparagus ferns are spectacular; they go for $15 around here, you got a great buy on them.
They will get HUGE in the fresh air!

And I hope Mr Sun doesn't get hungry and chomp down on those poor little birds!

The pots are fabulous..., and the birds, well they seem to find all these interesting spots to build their homes.

The bird's nest being built is so wonderful! We've been studying all the flying creatures this homeschool year so pics like those really fascinate me.

Love your outdoor pics. I would love to try a fern, but I am too chicken. I probably would kill it!

The nest in the sun's mouth is so darling! I finally have birds nesting in my birdhouses this year, I enjoy watching them so much! Thanks for sharing your lovely yard with us, sorry I haven't been by to visit in quite some time, it has been busy around here.
