~My New Sucre Tin & Photos of the Garden~

I found the cutest galvanized bucket at our favorite store,
Home Goods.
I had to have it for my sugar, very French you know.
I put a little red bird with a crown on top.
I love it.
I stopped by the nursery for some flowers.
We're redoing the plants by the front door.
There's always some area that needs some work.
I planted some Basil in the Herb pot. 
It's so small that it was falling over, 
so I placed some name corks to help support it.
My amaryllis is just starting to bloom.
We just bought a new lemon espalier.
I can't wait to have fresh lemons.
Some strawberries and cabbage that I have to plant.
I'm looking for the right spot in the garden.
Some playful rabbits jumping in the raised beds of lettuce.
Stan and I have been working in the garden planting new areas
 and adding new bulbs.
Unfortunately, we haven't had that much rain in San Diego.
This week we're supposed to get some.
It really helps with all the new plants.
I made a little dessert for us.
It's always nice to treat ourselves to something sweet.
Especially, after all the yard work we did this weekend!


  1. It all looks fabulous. I'm headed to the nursery on Wed., Sr. day. We could use some rain as well here in Arizona. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week.

  2. OMG - Your garden is beautiful! I can't believe you have all of those gorgeous plants and we have 5" of snow and expecting more each day this week. Sunny California!!

  4. aaaaahhhh...beautiful San Diego! I enjoy the seasons, but this is a bit much in the Midwest this winter! Enjoying looking at your garden and all the greens and flowers blooming now. What a Blessing! Your bucket is SWEET! Thanks for visiting~~~Blessings~~~Roxie

  5. WOW, your garden is super. I love all the different areas. Your sucre tin is lovely. I'm going over to Home Goods and see if they have one here. I just love that store. I am anxious to get in the garden and putter around.
    Now that I have seen the pie I want some LOL. I have a terrible cold and nothing tastes good.
    Hope we get rain this week.

  6. Home Goods is a 30 minute drive for me, but if I could find a cute container like yours, it would be worth the visit.
