Come Sail Away

Come Sail Away

I hinted a few days ago about an addition to the garden pond.
Sailboats!
Some scrap wood, old spindles for the mast, and vintage grain sack sails.
I think they look quite nice bobbing in the water.

  1. Love the charm of these! Maybe you should also have a little yellow rubber duckie bounching around also? Karen Noltee

    • Rubber duckies! didn’t think of that. My son (mind you he’s 17) was kinda into these, but now says he can make me a great milk carton boat!
      Then we even thought of a fleet of paper boats…hmmm lot’s of fun in the pond this Summer!
      The Water Lilies are slowly growing…they will be pretty when they are filled in. 🙂

    • Yes, we used to make little boats as kids and float in little tubs of water…how simple my childhood seems to have been. Don’t even get me started about all my days in forts and making mud pies! 🙂

  2. Very lovely and serene place you have. I love your little pond. It is so natural looking with the rock and pebble …. AND those sailboats! Your greenhouse is the perfect size and loaded with old fashioned charm. I am crazy about your garden house seen a few posts beneath. In short, I would feel right at home in your garden space, it is delightful!

  3. your pond popped into my head a couple of days ago and I remembered that you were “teasing” us. And me being me I wondered if there would be ducks on the pond….. far better to have sail boats 🙂
