I have a new neighbor and friend!
How many neighbor's on the first time
you meet would start helping you
weed your flower beds??
About 2 and a half months ago we
got new neighbor's next door, after
the house had been empty for about
2 years. I prayed for a nice neighbor
around our age and my prayers were
answered and then some. What a Blessing!!
She even offered to come over and feed
Milo while we were in Florida on vacation!
Yes, on the first day we met!
Now this is a true friend! Not that I was wanting
someone to help with my yard work,it's just that
we both enjoy working outside.
The family that lived there before were young and had children.
SEE I told you, here she is encouraging me along
to do yard work I've been putting off for years, yes
She asked me a couple weeks ago if I wanted the
ceder tree in my front yard limbed up.
Yes, for a long time now!
So one night last week she text me and said she'd be over at 8 the next morning.
She was and with her she brought her pressure washer!
Oh No, she really was going to work ME!
Here you can tell (on the Left) how the limbs touched the ground. On the right is after. Look
how bad the sidewalk needed cleaning. (that was next)!
You can see from this photo the sidewalk looks so much better. We worked for 4 hours and was so tired. Pressure washed the porch,sidewalk and the front of the house!
Hubby did take off the limbs and picked up under the tree. Uh oh, looks like he needs to wash the lawn mower now. Maybe we should have pressure
Here is my elephant ears and Hosta bed.
The Hosta is always so big and pretty, but I do need
to thin them out next spring. The red flower is Bee Balm, the hummingbirds love it!
They smell so sweet!
Look at that 'big' bloom on that limb!
Look how much my "America" climbing rose has climbed! I can't wait until the arbor is covered and in full bloom. I love the color.
When the Wisteria first bloomed, there was a cold
snap and it killed the blooms, now it is blooming again!
At the driveway door, I have two pots of this
Moss Rose on each side. I have lots of it planted
since it is a favorite of mine.
I moved my fairy from the flower bed and put
her on the bird bath, the glass ball glows at night,
maybe the birds can see how to bathe now,after I put more water in it!
Someone told me or I read it somewhere that if
you put moth balls in your flower beds it would
keep the pets out. Well I don't know but we'll
see if it works, Milo wants to use it for one Big litter box!
My Day Lilies have never been this pretty!
I love my Knock Out Roses, but it's hard to keep the stinky Japanese beetles off them this year. I get
out every morning and catch them before they wake and knock them into a bucket of sudsy water. I know it sounds cruel but they ruin the roses!
I had to tie up the Iceberg Rose bush,
it was hanging too far out and it was hard
to walk by it. It is almost as tall as the
Yes, even Hubby's tomato's are doing good, with
all the rain we have been getting and it's suppose
to rain today also.
Honestly, I didn't intend to be so long, but it is
the last day of June. Maybe now we can relax and
enjoy the rest of the summer!
Oh, maybe not, yard work is like housework it never ends!
Have a Blessed Day,
Joining Roses of Inspirations
