Good Morning From the Front Yard!


Happy Monday Friends!
Have I ever told you Monday is my favorite day of the week ? I always seem to get more accomplished on Mondays!

The photo below is from 3 years ago.. We had some evergreen bushes ( they were UGLY) removed from this spot , so I had a blank slate to play with .. We also got a new post last year .
I put those flat rocks on Craig's List this year for free, and a lady came and took them all. I wasn't enjoying mowing around them anymore..

 Two years ago I planted the pink hydrangeas ( they were blue but with our soil they turn pink)..Last year I added the 3 white Annabelle hydrangeas .
 I have lots of galvanized buckets full of annuals..This all got mulched on Friday .. I started with 13 bags .. ended up using 23 !



 A church rummage sale stool , and the bunny planters came from another church rummage sale, I love using thrifty finds in the garden :)

 My vintage wheelbarrow with a big oval galvanized trough filled with annuals..I will show you more of this garden soon...It has alot of zinnias and sunflower seeds planted and they are just starting to get some buds..

One of the pink hydrangeas


Another galvanized bucket ..this one sits on a base from a bird bath .. I do love this minnow bucket with the red handle !
If you would like to see what I am up to everyday join me on Instagram and my Facebook page ! I do post on both almost everyday ..Links to my Facebook page , Instagram and Pinterest are in the sidebar .. Hope to see you there ! :)

Thanks so much for all your visits and sweet comments !

I could live in your garden! Seriously, I'm putting a tiny house under the hydrangeas and moving in.

Lovely yard Priscilla! A few years ago we removed our ugly evergreen bushes too and now the front is so pretty!

Just stunning! What are those gorgeous purple flowers with the white around the edge? I have never seen them and I would love to add them to my garden.

Your yard looks just beautiful!!

You've got a green thumb for sure! The hydrangeas look very healthy and beautiful! I'm big on adding annuals and I use planters a lot. Love those purple petunias with the white edge!

Carol said...

Everything looks incredible, Priscilla! I'm so envious of your garden--all I see when I look at your flowers is "deer food!" Seriously, nothing is safe in our yard so I don't try any more. The hydrangeas we have planted are okay as long as the deer don't get extremely hungry (apparently they don't like them as much as other flowers :)

Carole West said...

Your garden is amazing! I love all the color and the metal containers are awesome. Don't you love it when hard work pays off. You must be enjoying the view.

I just love all your use of galvanized planters in your garden areas - they add great interest and a sweet vintage touch. :) Thanks for sharing at the TGP!

Stacey said...

Your flower beds are beautiful! I'm so jealous of some of your plant choices. We have full sun and Texas heat so there are no hostas in my future.

Pamela said...

Love all your flowers Pricilla! I need to plant some but it is just so hot here. Thanx for partying lady at my place!:)

Tara Lehman said...

Priscilla, your garden is absolutely beautiful! I love how you combined all the colors, all your flowers look so pretty. Take care, Tara
