Here is a thought for the day from Mark Twain:
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Rhondi, Your deck is fabulous! I love how you built it around the trees. We are also enjoying the rain in NJ. The garden just being planted will not need watering for a few days. Lovely post. SusanReplyDelete
wonderful quote and oh so true..ReplyDelete
Love your pics sweetie!!
What WONDERFUL world
Rhondi, that quote is oh so true!ReplyDelete
Your deck is to die for girl! That space is for dreaming and playing......WOW!
You captured such a lovely scene with the dogwood petals on the dark deck!ReplyDelete
We had a deck with holes cut for our tree but the tree outgrew the
deck and pushed it up off the piers. I so miss it.
What lovely photos of your garden. But even beter were the previous ones of your sitting room. How I love the quilt.ReplyDelete
Can I come sit on your deck? I don't care if it rains or if the Dogwood blossoms fall all over me. What a peaceful, serene setting for your home. We are 'enjoying' rains here in Oregon. And they are messing with the Spring blossoms on the trees here, too. ~Adrienne~ReplyDelete
Your deck looks so inviting...I'd sit out there in the warm rain...might even dance a bit a la Gene Kelly (only not nearly that skillful!)
What beautiful pictures! The blossoms DO look like big snowflakes! I love your deck, BTW. We got drenched too with rains and I'm so glad the sun is out today.ReplyDelete
Have a great day!
Love the thought for the day by Mark Twain.
My first time visiting your lovely blog. I found you on Suzanne's side bar and I'm glad I did.ReplyDelete
Your home and deck are so pretty, I just love all the woods surrounding your place, and those dogwood trees, oh my, beautiful!!!
I'll be back to read more about you in North Carolina-- :)
I stumbled upon your blog from Marie's Year From Oak Cottage Blog. What a wonderful magical little world you love here. It seems very comforting and sweet. Very inspirational!

That Mark Twain was a smart man. I love this quote Rhondi. There is a similar one by the late President of my church, Gordon B Hinckley . . . I think he said that when he looked back on his life (he was 92) he was not so much disappointed in the thing he had done, but in the things he had failed to do. I guess it is the same thing actually! DOH! I loved your deck. The air is full of the petals of the hawthorne and may blossom over here right now. Breathtakingly beautiful.ReplyDelete
A very beautiful, tranquil deck you have..I would love to be there now just listening to the birds.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful view you have from your deck. It looks like a haven for birds & birdwatchers.ReplyDelete
We got a little rain but not enough to bring our may flowers I don't think. We will have to wait and see.Great pictures!ReplyDelete
I could get lost in thoughts, dreams and books on that deck:-).
Have a fun day!
Great photos and great quote. I love the trees being incorporated into the deck construction...looks so inviting.ReplyDelete
Now watch nature green green up.
We have had almost too rain. Several surrounding towns are still damp and flooded. That I don't like....But I love a spring rain, YES I do! And your speckled deck is just a shower gift from above!!!!
The rain has been wonderful, hasn't it?!ReplyDelete
I love the quote and the song.
What a gorgeous deck, and the woods are stunning. This quote is wonderful too. It rained very hard today, but it was cold enough to make you want to sit by the fire. I can't wait for the warmer weather but I so appreciate the rain. Trees are blooming overnight. Blessings, karenReplyDelete
The rains have been most welcome! But here in the mountains of NC we are suppose to be getting frost tonight! So out I went to cover my peonies and lilac....I haven't planted my tomatoes or basil yet thank goodness!ReplyDelete
They do look like snow flakes. So pretty! I love the quote.ReplyDelete
I love that way those look. So pretty.
Thanks for sharing, and I love the quote too.
Oh Rhondi, your deck is SO beautiful! Glad to hear you got some much-needed rain. We got over 2 inches! Gotta love a rainy day once in awhile.ReplyDelete
Love the Twain quote, too. :)
Those photos are all so pretty!ReplyDelete
I love that quote!
I absolutely love your deck. What a beautiful, inspiring retreat.ReplyDelete
I love the pictures of the rain and your deck, You have a beautiful blog! TerrieReplyDelete
What a beautiful deck and the dogwood blossoms look lovely falling there..ReplyDelete
Where is NC are you?
I was born and grew up in NC, just moved to Florida in '04...my kids and other family are still in NC..
just north of Greensboro...
It looks like a fairy tale: blossom like snow!ReplyDelete
Lovely deck and great photos...do you take them? We have good friends in Beauford, NC....ReplyDelete
