View from my own backyard

Hello,
I thought you might like to see the view from my backyard today. It is such a beautiful day in Southern California. I had the need to just wonder around the yard.
Some of the items in the yard, I picked up at garage sales and flea markets. (Of course)
The lovely little farm table, a $25.00 garage sale find. The white chippy gate, Ventura flea market, $20.00



French watering can, $20.00 Santa Monica flea marktet.
A warm Spring day in your own backyard, priceless!

Hi, welcome to the world of blogging! You have a lovely backyard!

That's so neat that you get to go to all the great flea markets. I always read about the Santa Monica Flea Market. I'd probably spend a ton of money there! You should take pictures next time you go - I'd love to see them.

I love your blog name!

Hi Rosemary,
Welcome! I'm new to the blogging world myself. Still learning the ropes.
Your yard is beautiful!
My husband and I spent 10 days exporing the gorgeous California coast last month. Unfortunately, we missed all of the large flea markets. We were always in the wrong city on the wrong weekend. :(
Oh well, its a good excuse to go back. :)

Hi, Rosemary, yes, welcome to blogging. I've only been blogging since February & it's been so much fun. Thanks for stopping by to see me. Sounds like you really love bargain hunting too...like me, yardsales are addicting. I'll add you to my favorites & hope you come back & visit often!

Rosemary-
Love your garden! We don't have flowers out just yet because you never know about the weather here. Come Mothers Day weekend it's planting time! The garden centers will be buzzing, I can't wait.
I want more sunny California pics, bring em on!

I wish the Northern California flea markets were as good as the Southern California's! Your yard looks so nice!
