Tuesday 4 Meme- Hobby Girls..

1. Do you have a hobby or a special interest?  Do you quilt, crochet, cook, sew, collect things, sing, play an instrument, love dolls , politics, learning, reading, biking, hiking, camping, swimming, flower arranging, watching TV? Do you love to entertain, set a beautiful table or just take a walk? Share it with us won't you?
  Why do you enjoy it? Can you tell us how you became interested or what particularly interests
you about your hobby.
Would you share some photos or pictures of your hobbies or interests or lovely things you've seen along the way?  I love to read, take pictures of sunsets and sunrises, I enjoy planting flowers in my yard making it look nicer.  I like to read because it takes me somewhere else and I enjoy stories.  I enjoy taking pictures of sunsets and sunrises because they are so beautiful.  I want to capture them.  I can get lost in looking at the sky.

Holly loves photography
2.  Gardening is a hobby for some.
Do you garden or grow house plants?
 What do you like about it? What are your favorite plants inside or out? Pictures? We'd love to see  photos of you house or garden plants or hear about ideas you have for growing things or creating beauty with plants around the house.  I LOVE indoor plants and I used to have several, but when I went back to work they do not get enough attention and they have died.  I like to plant flowers outside.  Mums in the Fall and whatever grabs my attention in the Spring/Summer flowers last until Fall.
3. If you could design a dream garden or park , how would you do it? What would it contain.? Maybe include a picture from the net of one you think closely fits your dream garden.  I would like to plant more flowers in my back yard.  I tend to plant mostly in the front so the neighbors and people driving by can see them, but we spend a lot of time in our backyard gazebo and I would like to add some flowers/plants back there for us to look at.  Not anything crazy.  Something pretty to look at like this.

Do you like being outdoors? If so, what attracts you to the great outdoors and if not, what keeps you inside?
Do you walk in the rain? Are there parks near you that you like to visit?  I love to be outside, but I do not like to be too hot or cold and I hate mosquitoes, so I do not get to spend a lot of time outside.

  1. Such interesting questions. I do love a beautiful garden space, but I am not good at raising flowers. I usually do well with mums, but that is about all. My favorite flowers are purple tulips and I love peonies.

  2. There is just something about sunrises/sunsets..and the sky in general that is just breath taking!! I would love to have my backyard look like your pic! So pretty!! Have a great Tuesday!!

  3. I would love a backyard like that, smiles. Have a great day, friend. smiles

  4. Enjoyed your answers and beautiful pictures.
    Have a great week my friend.

  5. There were a lot more than four questions today! I summarized on my blog because I am not a plant person at all. I like to see beautiful gardens and yards but I use fake flowers in my Pink Floyd Flamingo out front. Minimalist all the way! LOL

  6. I enjoyed reading your answers and loved the photos! Like you, I have planted most of my flower in the front. Someday I hope to get our backyard in shape so as to have a lovely place to just sit, read, sip tea, and think. Have a great rest of the week!

    1. YES!!! That is exactly what I want to do. My son and I did a lot of reading early in the summer before it got too hot. I loved it.

  7. I like looking at the sky too and there is something wonderful about sunset. I like that backyard you showed. Takes a lot of work to keep up plants, that's for sure.

  8. When I read your answer I realized that I am always taking pictures of the sky. I guess that's a hobby of mine and didn't know it! That would be very pretty in your yard. I grew up in Illinois. I lived there for 38 years. Now I've been in CA for 30 years and it is really awesome not having mosquitoes.

  9. I love photos of the sky as well, sunrise, sunset, clouds. God's masterpieces I call them. I like your back yard fence idea. I wanted to do something similar to that at our last house where we had a privacy fenced in courtyard. I sat and dreamed about it, but never got around to it, so we moved. Now we have a pond to look at, which I am enjoying much much more. But I think the flowers, etc. on the fence is still a great idea, and I hope you will come up with something like that. Be sure to share it when you do!

  10. Love your dream garden and you and I share a disdain for the culprits of summer outdoors.

  11. I like your dream garden. We have a redish block wall that I would like to paint white. I love when my flowers are blooming. God provides us with lots of beauty to see!

  12. I love how you decorated your fence! You know, I don't see that very often. How clever of you to use the space so creatively!
