I had so much fun playing around with these pictures...
Discover PicMonkey, it's free ..or use the different effects on Picasa...
let your imagination run free....
I imagined that I was looking through a photo album from when this house was new.....
and that would be the 1930's

|abelia - original to this homeplace|
|liriope from my Grandmother's homeplace|
I really try to do a bit of research when adding new plants to my landscape..I want to stay true to the era of this house..there are a lot of original plants already in the landscape and that makes me very happy..
I just wish that privet was not one of them. we have been trying to get rid of it for 9 years..and it keeps coming back with a vengeance...this years abundant rainfall has caused us to have a quite a crop of privet at the edge of the woods and bermuda grass in the flower beds..
I am waiting for cooler weather to rejuvenate me and help me want to get back 'out there'..
but for now, the library is my friend..
I am way behind on reading....and I have a lot of sewing I plan to do..
thank you for stopping by today
I hope to see you again soon
