a day in the life | a look at my backyard

  1. Nelda Pattillo says:

    The patio and garden look beautiful! I know that you must be so pleased!
    Also, you look great post- op, but I do understand how much hard work goes into rehab!
    Keep up the great work!!😇

    I love spending time in the yard watching the birds at the feeders and my many water features. You could use one of those solar water features in your bird bath, The birds go crazy for the small noise it makes. Also, the metal furniture looks like my daughter’s design company, Leisure Made out of Marietta. They sell on line and also to large companies, like Lowes, Home Depot, Wayfair, Target and many more.
    Enjoy the outdoors as it is more important now than ever for our mental health and well being.

    Ciao Beth che bello vedere il tuo giardino molto grazioso e confortevole specie di questi tempi. Anche noi abbiamo un piccolo spazio esterno pur vivendo in centro Bologna (Italy) è pieno di rose antiche profumatissime ed è la mia gioia. Auguro a te Kelly ed i tuoi splendidi ragazzi tante giornate piene di gioia e serenità 🍀🌸🌼🐝

    Your yard and brick home is gorgeous !!!!

  5. Linda Osborne says:

    Love your patio’s! Everything looks great!

  6. Anna says:

    I love seeing your garden and patio and it’s sparking ideas for me in how I want to make our patio/backyard more comfortable. I so look forward to your daily posts — you are helping me get through these quarantined days. Also love Kelly and learning new recipes from her. Thank you for all your time and effort you put into this.

    Your yard looks marvelous! I always love little “rooms” in a garden, and you’ve got several spots available like that. And herbs in a garden not only smell good but get more prolific the more you snip them for use. It’s so true that gardens evolve over time. And as much as I love gardening, it’s also great exercise, too. Hard to beat that.

    Your house is lovely – it looks huge! Was this a downsize 🙂 Your hair looks great – have you been trimming it yourself? Asking because I’ve been cleaning up the ends and I like what’s happening. Who knew?!

  9. Miss Diane says:

    I love that dress! Petite question : are you letting your hair grow long or is it because it is impossible for you (like for us) to go to your hairdresser shop?

  10. Terri Lynch says:

    I read your blog every day. Your OOTD is a definite winner today! Your hair looks great; my hair is looking like Phyllis Diller. I really love my outdoor spaces too and my front porch is my definite retreat. You have done a spectacular job on your outside spaces. Hopefully, you will continue to recover from your surgery. Keep the ideas coming!

  11. Rose Thron says:

    You look wonderful and I love your backyard! Lovely and so inviting! Thank you for sharing!

    Hi Beth,
    I have thoroughly enjoyed your house tour. The garden and patio are so beautiful, but I especially love the feeling of a quiet sanctuary that can be felt through the photos.

    Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home.
    Stay well,

  13. Francesca B. says:

    Thank you for the post today Beth.
    I jumped when I saw the Ann Taylor dress was back in stock and I got one, yeah! They are running out fast so thanks for the heads up.
    Thought you looked wonderful in it.
    And I have some new gold sandals from Kork Ease that will go with it and make me feel elegant. Something fun to look forward too!
    Keep smiling:)

    looks very nice and relaxing. Love the planters and layout.

  15. Diane Ruebel says:

    One of the reasons I’m thrilled to have found your blog is because you are a marvelous story teller. Another is your willingness to be real: your hair, your scar, your herb garden messiness and the way you embrace the reality of your stage of life.
    Inspired to do the same,

    Your OOTD is a really good one! Love the dress, sandals and jewelry. You appear to healing well! My front porch is my favorite outdoor space from Spring to Fall and you have done a great job with your outdoor spaces. I have never tried a lemon tree before; I might try one this year! Take care!

  17. Lyn says:

    So wonderful to see your sunny weather – it was 28 degrees at our home this AM! That being said, because of the virus we have either cancelled or postponed some travel plans through the fall. We have always had a lovely yard, but this year it seems vital to create and enjoy our home. After a lot of years of doing our own mulch work, yesterday we had 5 young, and strong, men spreading our mulch for us. We have plans to plant a lot of flowers in our patio area this year. Even though we probably aren’t going anywhere exciting this summer, I have done a wardrobe refresh to enjoy while sitting on that beautiful patio.

    Your home is lovely. The backyard is a peaceful oasis, perfect for relaxing! I love the bird bath. Btw, your hair is looking great! It’s a bob!
