Gram's Garden:

      Earlier this month I took a quick trip to my home town of Stockton to visit with close friends and family. One of the highlights of the voyage was spending time in my Gram's serene backyard. Gram collects blue and white ceramics which are both scattered about her house as well as her garden, I love the elegant charm the decor brings to an outdoor space. She also cares for a variety of unusual plants and succulents (some of her cactus have even been kept alive for over 10 years!) and the plants truly enjoy a lovely home here. Hand painted birdhouses also speckle any empty wall or post so that any flying friend may have a safe space to rest their head. I took a cue from the birds and spent a few quite moments basking in the tranquility of Gram's bit of nature and now you can too:

Fresh orange segments and juices are a staple at Gram's when this tree comes to fruition. 

This solitary chair has the best view of the entire yard.

I like to make up topics of conversation for the bunnies, today they are discussing The Velveteen Rabbit.

My sister Claire made these bird houses, wish she would
come over and paint my home!

Gram painted this parrot herself!

I'm ready to move into this one!

Sun spattered leaves!

I simply would LOVE to cook a meal on this lovely yellow grill!
