Outdoor Wednesday~Secret Garden

Hello friends! and thanks for stopping by for another
Outdoor Wednesday.
Hosted by Susan at
Please be sure to visit her blog for a list of all very creative participants!
When I first bought the bulb for this peony plant, the picture on the package showed a very full and much more ruffly, lighter shade of pink flower than what it actually turned out to be.

The yellow iris are in full bloom here, and I have garlic chives planted inside the old garden cart that I also painted "HERBS" on the side of it. I built the tower shaped pergola with a birdhouse on the top after seeing one in a magazine that I thought was really cute!
In the past I have also planted a tomato plant inside it . It makes a much better support than a regular tomato cage does.

It's still pretty, but not what I expected.

Be sure to click on any of the photos for close up shots!!

Below is the view from the opposite end, where you can see that one of my rose bushes is beginning to bloom and is smiling up at the morning sun.

The lilacs in the background are just beginning
to fade...boo hoo!!
I wish it could be spring all year long!

Well friends that's all for today.
Thanks sooo much for stopping by to visit!
Have a wonderful
Outdoor Wednesday!

These are photos I took several weeks ago of my little secret garden on the side of my house just outside the master bedroom.

Hi Sherri, I love your little secret garden. Isn't it the best to see things growing? I adore the lilacs and hate to see them go also. Good to see you posting!

Happy Outdoor Wednesday.
