Outdoor Wednesday

Welcome to Outdoor Wednesday. Thanks to Susan, over at, for hosting this. Be sure to check out all the Outdoor Wednesday posts. My flowers around my mailbox are finally blooming. I just love the color that they add to the mailbox area.
The next two pictures are of a bush near the back of our property. I do not know what this is, but it is so pretty among all the greenery. I really want to spruce up that area of the yard. We have our shed back there, along with an area for lawn mower storage and some other things. I've always thought it would be a good spot for a kind of "secret garden" area.

This is an area that my oldest son and I worked on last summer. We want it to be a nice relaxing spot. I am still working on a few things in this area. It does make a nice reading spot. I would like to add a cushion for the bench and something to create a nice walkway.

I hope you enjoyed my Outdoor Wednesday pictures. If you know what my "mystery bush" is or have suggestions for my "secret garden", I would sure love to hear them.
Have a great Wednesday!

Your flowers are so lovely, and I agree, I love the yellow color in your mailbox area. And I love the pink color of the others. Lovely!

Happy Outdoor Wednesday...
