Beautiful gardens

I added a fence to my fairy garden.  I also painted flowers on the crate where the lettering is.The rest of these pictures are from a friends' home and gardens.  Considering the plant date for our area is this week-end, she has a head start.  She is single and her home is quite the place to go.  She has a fire pit area with tons of chairs that the neighbors and her friends gather around.  She also has three ponds.  You can't tell how big this Koi is but it is huge.  She has a swinging outdoor bed.  Such a fun place.  She wasn't home when Goose (in her jammies) and I walked over.  She had a party the night before, I could tell, he he.
This wagon was one of the wee ones.  She wasn't done planting......as I can see the flower containers.
She has lots of these chairs in different places around her property.
Thought these pots were cute.  The next picture is at Goose's house.
This is a flamingo.....you have to look closely.  She puts shiney gems around her gardens so the kids can look for treasures.  She is so  sweet to my granddaughters.  She is so giving.  She just became a grandmother for the first time.  She wasn't expecting to have any.  She will shower that little girl with lots of love and she will love coming to see her grammy.


Updates:  I think I have returned to normal after Mothers' Day.  It always shakes me up a little.
So far we haven't gotten scarlet fever from our granddaughter.....although I keep thinking I am getting it.
The Springfield Antique and Vintage Show is starting Friday.  I can't wait.  It's an hour and a half, I think, from where I live.  I want to go two of the days but can't seem to make any final decisions.  I thought I had a hotel  I was so excited because they have been all sold out.  Well, I entered the wrong date, so I don't have a room.  It's okay, I will figure something out.
Well, I need to get busy.  I am feeling a bit lazy these days.  SO much to do but so little ambition.

Your fairy garden is so cute! It has really turned out nice! I made the decision not to go to Springfield. I have too much to do and do not need to spend money on something I don't need right now. I also need to get things done at our house(we are in the middle of painting) before we go to my granddaughters birthday party in Canal. Even though I would like to go and see what it's like, I know I don't "need" to go. No sense flaring up my foot any worse than it is either! Let me know how it is. Btw, I don't think you can get Scarlet Fever as an adult. That's a childhood illness, even though it is a form of strep. Have a great day! ~Hugs, Patti

Hope all is well with the little one who is sick, hope she gets the bubblegum flavored antibiotic ;-). Nice friend to have, like living near a lovely park, with attractions!... Love your little garden, going to try and make one of my own. Thanks for the inspiration. Love, Penny

Love your fairy garden. What a neat story about the lady next door. I am sure she will be a wonderful grammy to her little granddaughter. What a blessings.

Goose's house is darling, too. I know how much you love that little girl!

Your fairy garden just looks better and better. What a lovely yard your friend has too. I would love a fire pit, since I'm too old to go camping in a tent and have one. LOL I don't know much about Scarlet Fever but I'm praying you don't get it.

I'm so glad you are staying well! That really is scary. Of course the little fence in your fairy garden is precious. I want to make a fairy garden this summer. Do you have any seashells in yours? I have lots of ideas! Hugs!

Wow, your friends garden plants are beautiful. And I love the fairy garden. Where do you have it? I think I need to look back at older posts to learn more. I would LOVE to plant one but it just seems so expensive to build one. :(

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

LOOOOVE your fairy garden! How fun!! And your friend's house...just gorgeous. LOVE the random placement of chairs. It just invites you to linger.

Sending you a hug!
