Love Your Creativity Link Party #197

"Love Your Creativity." The place  where  you can share your latest blog posts.  Just link up  at   the bottom of this post. You could be featured next  week!  Share your  home  decor ideas, tablescapes,  garden   projects, crafts, recipes, frugal living tips, lifestyle posts and more. The party starts at 12:00 Pacific time.

We are having beautiful spring weather.  I have worked out in the gardens for 5 days and my back feels it.

I cleaned out the garden bed in anticipation of planting tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce and more.  I certainly hope the darn squirrels don't eat anything.

I had my husband add two boards to the outdoor buffet so I can add more items either for display or entertaining.  It makes for great outdoor entertaining.  I will be sharing the outdoor buffet, fully decorated this coming week. Paul also re-covered the 6 patio chairs.

We also have plans to have a Cinco de Mayo dinner party out on the patio.

Also spring has sprung here in sunny California.  The Lilac, rosemary, wisteria, lavender and Lady Bank Roses are in bloom. I will be sharing them this week.

Party Time!

About Linda @ Life and Linda

Hello, welcome to LifeandLinda. I am from Northern California. I enjoy blogging, Designing Blogs, Decorating, cooking, entertaining, gardening and clogging. I hope you enjoy your visit.


  1. I love your idea for the pouring watering cans! Thanks for hosting the party. Have a wonderful week!

  2. You and Paul are always working and doing amazing projects, Linda. Thanks for all the inspiration and for hosting. I can’t wait to see all the fruits of your labor.

  3. I'm sure your garden is showing the results of all your hard work! We're in full spring mode here where it's once again raining. We have a sunny day and I work in the garden, then it rains for 1-3 days, it dries out for 1-2 days, the sun shines and I work in the garden one day, then the cycle repeats!! And my garden looks forlorn . . . sigh.

  4. I admire your hard work in the garden it will be wonderful to have all those fresh vegetables! Your patio would host a fabulous Cinco de Mayo party, oh how I wish I was your neighbor! Thanks so much for the party Linda, and thank you for featuring my Easter Buffet. We had so much fun watching the Masters Golf Tournament and watching the kids hunt Easter eggs. I hope you have a great week ahead 💕

  5. I am sure your place looks even more amazing in person, Linda. You do a lot---inside and out! I think your party will be wonderful! Off to check a couple of the links. Thanks! xo Diana

  6. Your garden gate and arbor are so charming, Linda. Good luck with those naughty squirrels. I thought they mostly lived at my house, haha!! Thanks so much for sharing my Easter Cupboard this week. Can't wait to see your lovely gardens!

  7. Thank you, Linda, for the Feature! Smiles, Linda at Paper Seedlings

  8. Linda, I didn't realize you had a vegetable garden. Is that area new, or the gate? It looks great, and so do the planters. I know the feeling of back hurting after working in the garden. I usually have to take a day off in between! Paul's been very industrious too. Great idea to add the shelves. Can't wait to see it soon. Thanks for the party. Fun features again.

  9. There's always so much yard and garden work in the Spring, isn't there!

  10. Thanks so much for hosting, Linda and for featuring my Easter table by the woodlands. I look forward to your garden updates this week!
