Spring Garden Tablescape

Time to least some things.  Still cold here but we can now plant cold season crops like peas and cabbages.  Soon carrots.  I can't wait!  So far we only use raised beds.  We made foot deep redwood boxes, trimmed the top with a flat board and in each corner attached a French style finial.  Painted them all a dark green.  I want to repaint a dark greenish blue this year.  A color I see associated with a French style garden.  We also made a tall decorative Kiosk to hold tools.  It has a bird house built into the cedar shake roof.  The Kiosk is very tall but not too big around.   I will have to post pictures soon. 

Actually designing hardscapes in my yard and garden is my favorite thing to do.  Even more than tablescapes, believe it or not! 

 I loved doing this happy Spring tablescape.  Unfortunately my computer is down.  I had to go to the library to add my photos.  I couldn't do any adjustment to the photo's, so they are in their natural state.  If you know what I mean.  No picture program.  This is one of my favorite tablescapes and I wish I had more exquisite photos.

              Oh, by the way, the cookies came from Whole Foods, so it has to be healthy, right?

 I will be posting this at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.  And Dishing It & Digging It, Link Party.  Thanks for looking.  Fell free to leave a comment below.  Have a WONDERFUL Spring!

I always use a new runner every Spring that I purchase at my favorite Pharmacy/gift shop.  I love that place!  The carrot cone/tussie mussie and peas and carrots candy is from the pharmacy as well.  Orange plates from the dollar store.  Ruffled burlap placemats from a new store called At Home.  Orange and white polka dot tablecloth from Ebay.  Cabbage plates I have had for years.  Little orange cupcake pedestal from Crate & Barrel.   My cute and charming Goose from Home Goods.  I wanted a cute whimsical critter holding carrots, and fell in loe with the Goose!
