I smell a fish and Ice cream!

Don't you just love my new cobalt blue solar powered fish? I do!~ My Mom bought Mike and I this for our works awesome too.  I put it out by our bright yellow bench

Of course I have been busy with my spray can in hand

This was the arbor last year

What a difference a year makes

Last year Mike bought me this arbor for my Birthday....I planted some yellow jasmine, that has really taken off this year.  I am thinking by the end of summer it should be entirely covered.

I have a question....these three cherry blossom trees are in the front of our home...this year they started getting cherries.....are they edible???? They never had them til this year...we where so excited. Here is a picture of the trees.  They where scrawny when we moved here four years ago.

From drab to bright and happy flowers!

One of the nicest things about our little town....we still have an ice cream man, of course Jack is the first kid out the door.
Happy Memorial Day Y'all!~
Thanks to all the hosts I will be linking up with this week.

The blue fish is adorable. I love the sound of water outside but don't have anywhere to plug a fountain in. I didn't realize they made solar power ones now! I'm going to have to find me one! And I LOVE the yellow flowers you spray painted. So bright and cheery!

Debbie, that little blue fish fountain is so cute. Your mom did good. Those flowers look so much better yellow and your jasmine has done good. I don't know anything about those cherries. Have a great day tomorrow.

That fountain is wonderful and looks so good near your bright yellow bench! I'm so jealous of the ice cream fellow in your neighborhood. We use to have one and suddenly she is no longer! Oh well we have the Schwans Man and their ice cream is yummo!

I adore the photograph of that little kid with his bare feet and ice-cream!

The yellow freshly-painted flowers are a charm, beautifully added!

I'm sure those cherries are edible. Try one. You might just like them (or maybe you'll like them where they are, on the tree).

The little fish is such a cute thing! So is the arbor- your people know you so well and are so good with gifting ideas. You are great with putting them to use of course!

Lovely trees!

Thumbs up! :) :)

Love the blue fish fountain! Yay Mom!!! Big Kudos!!! The flowers painted yellow look great. But again it's the jasmine (this time on that adorable arbor) that has got me! Loooove it! I've gotta go get some!

Oh, sorry, meant to say, I don't know a thing about those berries! Maybe you could take a branch to a local garden nursery and inquire, before you eat one! LOL!

Hey Debbie, I am so jealous of the solar fish, my yard is almost all shade. I love the flower transformations. You are having just too much fun with that yellow paint. Lastly, we sooooooooooo miss our Ice Cream Man! We now live in an unincorporated area ... no Ice Cream Man :(.

I miss the ice cream man - you don't want to send the kids out to one where I live. . .
(Thanks for stopping by - I'm doing the same from MM)

The fish is so cool. I also didn't realize they had solar powered ones. I am going to have to go hunt for one.

Great color combo/painting those to contrast with the blue fish! And the arbor flower growth from last year to this is wonderful, too!


Blessings to you,

You garden sound colourful without even having flowers.
The berries or cherries are edible, I used to have one in my old home, it took a few years before we had any cherries, they are really lovely, cost a fortune in the shops when they are out of season.

What a sunshiny post! Your garden is looking fabulous and that blue fish is too cute. Hope you find an answer about those berries-they look great but you would want to be sure before eating one!

Best wishes,

Hi Debbie, I love the blue fish fountain, it looks fabulous next to your yellow bench. It's amazing how fast the arbor is filling in, looks great! I love your yellow flowers, they are so cute, just like you:)I love the picture of Jack, we are lucky enough to still have the icecream truck come by with his music blaring, I love it!

I love the flowers painted yellow. very cute!

I wish I lived somewhere long enough to have an arbor with flowers covering it. Maybe if we move to SC, I will be there around 3 yrs. so I can have something like that. I love yours.
