SAYING GOOD BYE TO MY FLOWER GARDEN;

N.C Trip 001

Hello there dear friends; I took these photos the day before we left, just look at how they are all blooming.... For some reason my Black eyed Susan's did not grow back,,,,, I think they much have been pushed out, so many plants in one small area...  My Yarrow and Purple cone Flowers are doing so well, as are my Shasta Daisy's.....  Please don't look at the yard it has not been mowed yet, my Son was mowing it the day we left.....  Don't they look so very pretty...............

Close up of my Shasta's I picked a few and I had a pretty light green vase with daisies around it, so they look just perfect... I should have taken a photo......  oh well........................

N.C Trip 004   This is out in our front yard around the yard light post. Just to the right you can see my Yellow Rose bush, she is doing great there, When I planted this plant I did not know the color of it, until it bloomed, so It looks just lovely next to the Rose's.  In this area I was planning on putting in my Fairy Garden, with all kinds of little Fairy pretties.....

N.C Trip 007  I am so very proud of my Pink Hydrangeas, they are doing so great. I have two planted, and they were just getting going when we had to leave..... But my Daughter Heather has been stopping by to water if any thing needs it,  bless her she has even been weeding my Veggie garden.... how lucky am I to have a Daughter like that...... awwwwwwwwwwww......  she is my Baby Girl......

My Lavender was really starting to take off as well, I just love the sent when you slid you hands through it.... I was going to dry some for small lavender pillows for dresser drawers, I told baby girl to do it and make some, she does know how to sew so I hope she does....

AHHHHH and my Coral Bells,,,, they have such beautiful long stems with tiny flowers on them...    The leave's color are just gorgeous....  

      Just looking at all the blogs that are showing off their beautiful flower gardens, made me home sick for mine...  But I do have faith that the Lord will give me one again someday... So I will just have to get my garden fix with everyone's blogs...  I have seen so many beautiful ones so many green thumbs out there... OH and all the whimsey and fun garden art and decor too.  I just go off the phone with Hubby and we only have two more weeks here then we can move into our Apartment,,,, yea!!!!!  I hope the weeks just fly by, I can't wait to get out of here, then all the fun begins. Decorating... and find new ways to show off my things..... and then to take some photos to show you all....  So I just need two more weeks, I can do it.... I know I can.... lol    Well that is about it girls, I hope you enjoyed reading my post, and my photos....  Hope you all have a beautiful day.....  As always thank you for taking the time to stop by and read about my day's  and then leaving your kind comments,,, just makes me feel worth while....    Until Next time;

God Bless;

Picture this, you have a beautiful garden of lush tropical plants cooled by the breeze of the palms, kissed by the sun & caressed by the dews, the aromatic scent filtering thru the air ... does this help? Chuckle! You'll be fine, sweetie. TTFN~ Marydon

Just hang in there until you can have your little home settled into. Maybe you can plant some of those little container gardens once you do!!! I know leaving all of your plants behind is hard...
Can't wait to see what you do with your new place!!!

Welcome to beautiful North Carolina!! Moving is never easy and it will be some time before you feel 'at home' again, meanwhile take one day at a time and all will be well.

Gastonia is nice and you are close to Charlotte for big city things, if you enjoy cultural/art happenings etc.

Summer is hot and humid - hope you don't mind - but the Winters are usually mild. Hope you soon get settled and then later can have a garden again.

Bet wishes - Mary.

Oh, you are so going to enjoy living in your new place. I love moving, I have moved often, and it's so much fun to see all of your things arranged differently. Gardening takes up so much time, now you will have time for new things in your beautiful new adventure. We lived in an apartment when we lived in Hong Kong and I used to have plants on my terrace. I loved apartment living, because I could live life instead of cleaning all the time. I took me all day today to take my family room apart and clean. Ugh, I used to be able to clean my entire apartment in a morning.

Enjoy your move.

Oh you are moving to a lovely place! I know how hard it is to leave and the fears,etc. Hopefully you can find a church where there is a large ladies group. Once you make friends and get busy life will be almost normal.

I am praying for your husband to do well there...and you too. :)

Hugs,
Melissa
