Lonesome For My Garden

Hello everyone,
Today I thought I'd share some pictures I took of my flower gardens last year.  Being in Florida for awhile enjoying the warm weather and lush foilage makes me really lonesome for my  flower gardens back home.

My front flower bed by the driveway.

My four square garden with a mix of perennials overlooking my green house covered with ivy and hops vine.

The flower bed is leading up to our log home and rose arbor by the front porch.

The flower bed by the little red shed at my farm cottage.

Thank you so much for visiting.  Hope I didn't get you lonesome for summer, too!

I will be joining the following parties:
Show Off Your Cottage Monday

A Touch Of Valentine

Happy Valentines Day everyone,
We are being snowbirds for a month or so in Florida.  Love the warm sunny days!  I've enjoyed everyone's Valentine posts so much so decided I'll try one from here.  I was lucky to find this lace tablecloth and teacup at a thrift shop here, so with a few extra things I've decided to bring this to you!

The teacup is marked Germany.  I love the sweet pink and green combination together.
Hope you all have a wonderful Valentines Day with your family and friends.  Thank you so much for visiting.

I'll be joining the following parties:

Pink Tea

Hello everyone, I thought Id share one more tea party I had a few years ago.

I used a tablecloth a friend of mine made for me.  If you look closely you'll see the teapot and teacup design.  Again, I'm using my rose dishes with the teapot to match.

Last winter we had a gas corner fireplace installed, so the large wall shelf had to go.  I'm still hoping to find a place for it in my little cottage.
Again, sorry about the date on the pictures.  Thank you so much for stopping by, Nancy
