Cheating and adding a second post for #flowers, just because mine were a huge summer highlight! I'm generally happy to see summer go and let fall come in, but I had such a lovely time tending the wildflowers I planted this year. They were so bright and colorful and attracted so many bees and butterflies! It was really fun to watch them all every day. #SelfImprovementSept

Andrea313 @squirrelbrain Same here! This was the first year I was really intentional about bee-friendly plants and I was surprised by how much fun it was to see them flock daily to the flowers! The butterflies were also an unexpected bonus. 🌺🌸💮🐝🦋 2mo
Nute I love a wild flower garden! Yours is truly lovely! 2mo

1. The lilac trees in our backyard are in full bloom. It‘s nice to look at as I stand here waiting for the dogs to come back inside.

2. About 2 1/2 years ago, but it took me almost 6 months to really become active.

3. We have Dinosaur Barbecue here, that‘s pretty well renowned. We‘re also known for our Half-Moon Cookies.

4. 8am, but since I was up till 2am reading, I made myself go back to sleep until 9:30.

5. Books, lotion, clock, a picture.

DiruVamp What a beautiful yard! 1y
GypsyKat @DiruVamp Thank you! The hubs enjoys gardening and he‘s done a lot of work on it. I‘ve helped of course, but other than directing flower placement, it‘s mostly him. 😊 1y

MinDea I took me at least 6 months too if not closer to a year. 1y
jillannjohn Beautiful yard! I have to admit that I have no idea what dinosaur barbecue is! 1y
GypsyKat @jillannjohn It‘s a local restaurant but it‘s been showcased on a bunch of tv shows about food. And thank you! (edited) 1y
GypsyKat @MinDea I was honestly intimidated when I joined. But after I got to know people and realized that most people on here are awesome, that went away. 😊 1y
jillannjohn Ahh. I should have googled first. Now I know! 😀 1y

Suet624 The lilacs in my neighborhood all seemed to pop open last night. Such a wonderful smell. 1y

We have had a day of working in our back yard, but it is starting to look like spring! (Also, I finally gave in & bought the green rocking chair that I‘ve had my eye on!)

My favorite reading spot is in my backyard, but just for three to four months ... and then we have to move on the couch and patiently waiting for next warm seasons.

Reecaspieces Oh yes. Me too! I love sitting outside to read. So peaceful. Then...it's taken away..😂 2y
Nat_Reads Your dog ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 2y
Simona @Nat_Reads She is my furry ball ♥️ 2y
Simona @Reecaspieces I like autumn too, but all the green in my backyard is very calming for me... and you are right - and then is taken away 😟 2y

This is taken from the back of my #backyard 🤓 when it rains I have the screened in deck and on nice days I sit under the massive oak tree... the orange dot is our dog Milo's basket ball the only kind a ball he can't get his mouth around.. ☀️⛱📚😎
