Yard pictures!

This is the little path around our koi pond. We have a few clematis and
peony that have bloomed. But they get so heavy they fall over...also all
the storms we have been having have not helped them very much either.
I need to get some little pillows for our benches though they don't look
to comfortable. Hope you had a great weekend!

OH Joy! Your garden is just so peaceful looking, love your garden bench;) Wonder why? Could it be the chicken and the rooster on it?

Thanks for sharing your pretty pictures with me! Hope your weekend is going really well!

Hi Joy :)

Your garden looks wonderful! My peonies are doing the same thing. I've tried using wire cages, but they're too heavy. Love that bench!
