~~~Garden Shots~~~~

 Hello dear friends. I know I have been MIA and I apologize. We finally have the house ON THE MARKET!!!!! We have done a ton of work getting ready. But now I have a few minutes to look around and "smell the roses". So, I thought I would take some pics, around the gardens. The pond is running and the plants are growing. This pale pink astilbe is so soft and delicate looking.
 This is my pair of cranes that I got at Target several years ago. I just love them!
 This deep pink astilbe is SO pretty!!!! I wish I had some white hydrangeas to pair with it.

 One lone daylilly blooming here:)

 I love my fish in the pond. We placed them on bricks to raise them so they look like they are swimming. Kinda;)
 Sorry this one of the waterfall is blurry.
 Joe built this swing many years ago. Last year we stained the frame black. I love it and will miss it. Maybe he will build us a new one in the new house!!!!
 I have 10 hydrangea bushes around the property. ALL of them were plucked out of the TRASH at the florist where I used to work!!!!! They were little tiny plants when we put them in. Now look at them!

 This is a shot of the back deck and patio below.
 I have 6 hydrangeas out front.
 They are in various stages of bloom right now.
 We spread 15 yards of mulch this year. In past years we have spread 30 yards! That comes in a truck almost as big as a tractor trailer. It is a MOUNTAIN of mulch:):) We were young and stronger then:):)

 TA DA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The sign went up last night!!!!!! And I just got a call for a showing tomorrow!!!!!!!!! PLEASE say a little prayer for a quick sale.
Thanks so much for your visit. I so appreciate all of you faithful follwers. I am joining these parties:
Nifty Thrifty Tuesday at Coastal Charm
Cowgirl Up! at Cedar Hill Ranch
Tuesday’s Treasures at My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia


  1. its so lush and beautiful.. I am wishing you a quick sale with no headaches of any kind.. maybe some folks will show up with cash:-)

  2. Well the garden is a great selling point. Love the hostas and astilbes!

  3. Pinky, the hydrangeas are gorgeous! I can't believe you plucked them from the trash! Apparently, you have loved them well! All of your plants are so pretty! Here's hoping for a quick sale!

  4. Pinky,
    Gorgeous inside and out!!! Love all the flowers are in bloom! May God send someone who will "fall in love" with your home enough to "sign on the doted line" tomorrow! Keep us posted, dear friend!

  5. Oh my goodness, Pinky! I temporarily lost you on my blogroll, so I haven't visited in awhile. Congrats on the new home, but I can't say I envy your upcoming move. It's been almost a year since we sold our house, bought this one & moved -- not something we care to do again. Your home looks beautiful, and I'm sure it will sell quickly. The housing market is really starting to pick up, it is here anyway, so I hope it is in your area. You are definitely back on my blog list, so I'll be following more closely....lol!

  6. Your hydrangeas just make my heart go pitter patter! I love them and the swing. Oh, you have to somehow take it with you! I am praying for a quick sale! Good luck with the showing! Keep us posted!

  7. Your garden is lovely! You have done an amazing job with it! Hoping for a quick sale for you! Angie xo

  8. Your yard is just gorgeous! I can't imagine anyone not falling in love with it the first time they see it. I'm so jealous of those Hydrangeas. It doesn't look like the one I planted this year is going to make it. :(

  9. Your yard is lovely and I am sure it will be a wonderful selling point for someone who loves gardens. Hope you get a good buyer soon!

  10. What a wonderfu yard. Beautiful colors and textures. Your house will sell immediately. Who would not want a yard like that?

    Have a blessed and wonderful day!

  11. Pinky...your yard is gorgeous...who wouldn't want to live in a house with such a beautiful garden as yours! Your hydrangeas are beautiful...and I am so jealous of your hostas...I cannot have them here...deer food!!

  12. Your yard is lovely.
    Here's hoping for a quick sell for you, it all looks so tranquil I can't imagine it staying on the market long.

  13. Your gardens are lovely! Bring some of those hydrangea with you!
    I will say a prayer your house sells quickly. You have worked so hard!
    Put St Joseph in your garden, buried. It is s upposed to work! :)

  14. I know you must feel so relieved to have everything packed up....your home and lawn are magnificent!!!
    Your Hydrangeas are so gorgeous!!!
    Get some rest....you deserve it!

  15. Those hydrangeas are stunning. Fingers crossed!!

  16. With a yard like that and such a fabulous pond it should sell so fast Pinky! I love your pond and your fun fish. How clever. The hydrangeas are certain to sell the place themselves. Definitely saying a prayer for you!


Thanks you for leaving your lovely comments. xo, Pinky
