Around the house - Outdoor edition

Good Morning!

I hope you all had a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend.  Ours was busy and hot but we got a lot accomplished and we squeezed in some fun with the family and now we begin preparations for another insanely busy week coming up.

Since I can't seem to tell you about the grilled pizza or the Strawberry Shortcake or the fruit dip or the housewarming party or the grandgirl's first birthday party, I thought I would show you what is going on outside my doors.  The inside of my house is still a mess; but, the outside makes me extremely happy.  I hope you enjoy it, as well.

Now, if I can manage to not get eaten alive by the ravenous flying bugs here in New England, I will be all set.

I'm linking up for the first time here with Sidewalk Shoes for Garden Tuesday.
Won't you join us?

Have a happy Tuesday!  I'm going to prepare for my baby's high school graduation. 

Where are my tissues?


  1. Too much good stuff! I love the red strawberry jar. I think the new home will be just right!

  2. Beautiful, you are getting a lot done, it looks beautiful. I love the Rhododendron!
    I move back inside when the bugs come, can't stand it.

  3. WOW! What a beautiful flower garden you have and the plants on the porch are the perfect touch! So glad that your new home is offering you so much beauty! Congrats on the graduation....Hugs..
