Our huge yard, of which this picture shows only a small portion.....


Our flowering Dogwoods.....


Our Home.....


Our Guest Cottage and Pool side garden....

Such a pretty yard! We just moved and I know how hard it is to move on. So hard to picture someone else in the space you have loved and lived! Best wishes to you!

I would miss all that, too. What a nice big pool. So fun to start new though. Just think of all the decorating to be done.

Such gorgeous place! I know you'll hate to leave but I'm sure your next place will be just as lovely. I could so dive into that pool right now. A lot of people say they would not opt for a pool the 2nd time around. How do you feel about it?

Oh, I can imagine how much you will miss this paradise! But you will make a new garden, and it will be lovely too. Thanks for the tour. I hope the move goes well, and there are no tears and no broken dishes.

Beautiful ! Take the time while things are flowering to mark what you want to dig up and take with you. It's nice the next year to have a little bit of home with you. Enjoy your move, I'm sure your next place will be stunning in no time! New follower ! Jules ♥
