A Summer Retreat

 So I've taken it upon myself to create a summer retreat in my backyard! All you need are some wildflowers, a hammock and some accessories to add bright colors!

Here's my little backyard niche before:

 Aaahhh... nothing's better then some fun summer patterns for hammock pillows!

After digging up a couple small bushes and turning the dirt, I sprinkled wildflower seeds onto fresh soil and lined the flower bed with old bricks that were laying around.

More color is added with brightly colored pots! 

Perinnial wildflower seeds aren't the best for instant gratification because they may not bloom the first season... as you can see i'm working with 3" high green twigs here...maybe I'll have something to show next year!

Added a hammock!

and sewed some pretty pillows.
