not so secret garden

The air is heavy, we’ve had a very stormy grey (dotted with lovely patches of sunny) beginning to spring. All the extra moisture has made my hair super fuzzy, but also brings out the lush gardens.

Off the side porch, the walking path to the backyard is almost completely swallowed up by lilacs. I don’t know if they are extra fragrant this year, but it seems every room in the house is filled with their sweet scent.

To add to the romantic cottage in the woods feel, I made a giant outdoor doily blanket using the utterly gorgeous Anya pattern. I mostly did this to hide the fact that (because my porch furniture is nut-brown) the a-hole squirrels felt compelled to chew off all the back cushion piping! (total jerks)

 Welcome to our shabby granny porch, in our not so secret garden.
