Spring is calling us outside into the yard and garden.
Jonquils and tulips are popping, not to mention the robins hopping along searching for worms.
Your Yard & Garden, A Haven
Spring also brings dreams to the homemaker who adores the fresh air and the glories of nature at her doorstep.
If you love the look of whimsy and enjoy the fresh air of nature, you can make your own yard and patio or porch a little Eden on earth – at least for the warm months of the year. Many a homemaker has tried to add such little touches to her yard and garden to bring a simple beauty there.
These simple and doable yard and garden ideas delight me, and I love to share them with you.
They needn’t be expensive or grandiose. Save your money. Recycle what you have already. A well-thought out plan can make a drab corner a bright spot.
An outdoor shower is not something everyone wants or needs, but our (much simpler) outdoor shower has been a huge worksaver here on the farm during planting and harvest season.
Contentment working alongside your creativity is one of the sweetest ornaments you can bring to your home! We can transmit great joy to our children and teach them that “if Mom is content, I can be content.” A busy, peaceful heart is contagious!
I have a Part Two with some more fresh and clever ideas for your yard & little slice of Eden.

“For the LORD will comfort Zion, He will comfort all her waste places; He will make her wilderness like Eden, And her desert like the garden of the LORD; Joy and gladness will be found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of melody.” ~Is. 51: 3
