This is the time of the year when I’m doing a lot of outdoor dreamin’.  The way I see it, if I’m going to dream, I might as well dream big.  So…I’ve been perusing my Hometalk and Pinterest “Outdoor” boards a lot lately.  Today, I’m sharing some photos from those boards with you.  Each photo links to the site where it originated. I hope you’ll just sit back and enjoy some outdoor dreamin’ with me.

This picture of our climbing rose is from a recent post on my blog.  I added this, because several people asked what it was.  (Besides, it’s the only dreamy thing in our yard).

There is so much inspiration on Hometalk and Pinterest.  If I had posted all of my outdoor dreaming from my boards, it would have taken days for my blog post to load on your computer!  If you’d like to check them out, there are links to both sites on my sidebar. If your photo is on this post, and you want it removed, please email me, and I will immediately remove it.  Also, if your photo is on this post, and you would like to post the “Laurie borrowed from my blog” button, please feel free to copy it from my sidebar. Thank you for joining me in my dreams. laurie

Well, you certainly have me dreaming with these images. Some of these porches and outdoor spaces are incredible. Thanks for sharing, Laurie.

I like your pins. With Pinterest even dreaming can be overwhelming. So many choices.

Dewena said...

So beautiful! Pinning really does help, doesn't it? I can go to mine and what I like best sinks in. Your rose is incredible!

Lots of beautiful settings - thanks for sharing. I put my pots of annuals back outside today - sure hope they make it as my allergies were in overdrive with them inside. First thing I saw when opened blinds this AM - squirrels had dug up some of the plants in some of my pots of begonias again.:(
Hope you are having a great week.

Lots of dreamin' to be had, Laurie! I cannot wait to get back using our own backyard oasis. It needs some weeding, mulching, and some color. Need to make a trip to the nurseries soon. Enjoy your inspiration photos and soon you'll be out in your own yard and outdoor areas- making them beautiful!

I love these so much! That hot pink bike one is my favorite just because I like the whimsy. Actually... I would give just about anything to have any one of them around here.
