WHAT DO YOU SEE OUT YOUR BACK DOOR????

XOXO...AMY...XOXO
ALWAYS IN OUR HEARTS




WHAT  DO  YOU  SEE  OUT  YOUR  BACK  DOOR???

I  JUST  SHOWED  A  COUPLE  OF  THINGS  BUT

WILL  BE  SHOWING  MORE  AT  A  LATER  TIME.




WE  HAVE  AN  AREA  IN  THE  BACK  YARD

WHERE  MY  HUSBAND  BUILT  A SPECIAL  FENCE

SO  I  COULD  HAVE  A  WILDFLOWER  GARDEN.

IN  FRONT  OF  THE  FENCE  WE  HAVE  RAIL-

ROAD  TIES  WHERE  WE  HAVE  PLACED  SOME

OF  MY  ROCKS  AND  HAVE  POTTED  PLANTS.

IT  HAS  AN  ARCHWAY  AND  GATE  YOU  ENTER

THROUGH.  IT  NEEDS  SOME  LOVIN'  AND  IT

IS  ON  OUR  TO  DO  LIST.






THIS  IS  OUR  BEAUTIFUL  CLEMATIS.

WE  HAVE  HAD  IT  FOR  5  YEARS  AND  I

THOUGHT  IT  HAD  DIED  AS  MY  DH  CUT  IT

WAY  BACK  IN  LATE  FALL.  THERE  WAS  A 

GORGEOUS  WHITE  ONE  ON  THE  OTHER  SIDE

AND  THE  TWO  GREW  AROUND  EACH  OTHER

AND  PEOPLE  WANTED  TO  KNOW  WHERE  WE

PURCHASED  A  CLEMATIS  THAT  HAD  PURPLE

AND  WHITE  BLOOMS.

THE  WHITE  ONE  MUST  BE  DECEASED  AS

THERE  HAVE  BEEN  NO  WHITE  BLOOMS.

WE  HAVE  THREE BIRDBATHS,  BECAUSE

LIKE  YOU  WE  LOVE  THE  BIRDS.



WHAT  LIES  BEHIND  US  AND  WHAT  LIES

BEFORE  US  ARE  TINY  MATTERS  COMPARED

TO  WHAT

LIES  WITHIN  US.

~RALPH  WALDO  EMERSON





THANK  YOU  FOR  VISITING  SIMPLY  DEBBIE

TODAY.  I  REALIZED  BY  SOME  OF  THE

PINK  SATURDAY  POSTS  I  AM  STILL  VISITING

TO  CHECK  UP  ON  MY  FOLLOWERS  AND  THOSE

WHO  FOLLOW  ME.  IT  IS  IMPORTANT  THAT  WE

JUST  DO  NOT  KEEP  IN  OUR  OWN  LITTLE  SOCIAL

CIRCLE  AS  THEIR  ARE  PEOPLE  WHO  NEED  A

FRIEND...SOMEONE  TO  VISIT  THEM...SOMEONE

TO  PRAY  FOR  THEM...TO  ENCOURAGE  THEM.

THAT  IS  WHAT  MAKES  A  BLOGGER  SPECIAL.

THE  LORD  BLESS  AND  KEEP  YOU  AND  YOUR

FAMILY  SAFE...AND  THAT  YOU  KNOW  HIS

LOVE,  MERCY,  AND  GRACE.

YOU  ARE  SPECIAL  TO  ME  BUT  MORE

IMPORTANTLY  YOU  ARE  SPECIAL  TO  JESUS.

HUGS  AND  BLESSINGS

SIMPLY  DEBBIE

It's a wonderful feeling...thank you for sharing so much love with us sweet Debbie.

Oh my, the clematis is lovely! I had one but the yard guy cut it down a few winters ago thinking it was dead. Did not have the heart to start another one. I will just come and enjoy yours.

I hope your and yours and your furry ones have a blessed day.

Connie said...

Oh, I wish our clematis was a gorgeous as yours. Perhaps someday it will, sugar.

I see a grape arbor up next to our fence and flowers by the patio.

xoxo,
Connie

Hi Debbie! Oh I do love a beautiful garden of flowers! The yellow colored ones are most cheery to me, I think! I'm afraid there is no place for me to garden this year, with the new apartment; but still I love to get outdoors after a long hard winter, to just soak up the warm sun and breath the wonderful fresh air.. walk my dog around the block during the day, or to roast marshmallows under a cool evening sky! Isn't it wonderful to have the nice weather back again?!! Enjoy it! ~tina

Debbie - I enjoy your blog - like the quote from RWE - he was a man before his time. Sandie

Your flowers are beautiful Debbie!

Darlene said...

Hi Debbie,

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I love seeing out your back door. The wildflower garden looks great and the clematis is just BEAUTIFUL!! I have heard they are kind of picky...yours LOVES you!!!

To answer your question Cloverleaf is in Ardmore Oklahoma. It is in Southern Oklahoma, located about halfway between Oklahoma City and Dallas, Texas. I'm not sure where you live in Oklahoma but it is a fun place to browse around. Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday.♥

Hello Debbie,

Thanks for visiting me today. Your flowers are lovely. I adore Clamatis flowers. I've never seen them before I moved here to the South. I'm sure they grow other places too, but I didn't discover them till recently. The white ones are fantastic! Maybe they'll come back next year?

Thanks for your suggestion of pressing the gardenias. A constructor friend of mine gave me 3 big heavy pieces of wood specifically for pressing flowers since I asked him for it a while back. (he always has extra lumber lying around) and I will try that. I had almost forgotten about that, but pressing them and maybe crocheting a white border around the frame would make a lovely gift - homegrown and homemade - the best kind :-)

Have a wonderful day!
Doris

Bernie said...

It sure is pretty in your back yard.....Hugs

Darlene said...

Dang Blogger, it ate my comment.

Mainly,just saying you are so right about bloggers visiting others!

And how lovely it is outside your door, so much beauty!

Charlotte said...

Lovely back yard. I started to buy a Clematis plant the other day. They come back every year, right? That's the kind of flowers I like.

Oklahoma Granny said...

We don't have too much out back - a couple of yard ornaments and some bird feeders. Beyond that is some hay that will be cut later this week or next. I love watching the guys cut and rake and bail. I'll probably post pictures after it's done.

Your flowers are gorgeouse and I'm sure they have wonderful scents!

Morning Debbie,
Thanks for coming by yesterday, so good to hear from you hon. Thanks for your sweet comments on my tablescape. I love the red, white and blue too, it is just so American!! and I am all about America and what is good and right for this nation under God!!
You know, I have had those stars so long I can't even remember where I got them. Probably at Target or maybe a party shop! I know awhile
back I was looking for hearts for Valentines day and could not find them anywhere and I found one
last lil bag at Target with all their Valentines stuff. I was so happy cause I had looked everywhere!! I was thinking they maybe quit
making mylar pretties, course, they may have and the ones I found were from the year before or something. Hope not, cause I really enjoy them.
I hope you are doing well my friend, and hope your week has been good and the rest even better.
Blessings Galore hon,
Nellie

Hi Debbie I have been into family things for the last two weeks and just getting around to saying hello. I love the out your back door theme. I have huge white clematis on my header and some purple on the other side of the courtyard. Blessings to you and your and Miz Gracie. Sounds like you all had some big bad weather out there.
