Pieced Pastimes: My Mothers' Beautiful Gardens

My Mothers' Beautiful Gardens

My mother was blessed with a 'green thumb'.
My father and mother spend countless hours working on their property. 
 Islands of eye candy were carefully placed throughout the property.
 The barn is my father's favorite place.
 The corral area gives his horse 'Big Hugh' a great view of the overflowing landscape.
 Flocks are in full bloom by the barn well .
 The side gardens  include a variety of plants with something different blooming all the time.

Holidays are always celebrated as in this 'Memorial Day' tribute.
 The back yard gardens are mixed in amongst the stone walls and stepping stones.

 Many of the gardens have little unexpected touches that add to the warmth and charm.
 The shrubs and trees are pampered and pruned to perfection.
 People driving by will turn around. They will park and stare in awe of their beautiful home.
 Another gorgeous area in the backyard provides a lovely place to rest.
 Different varieties of lilacs (New Hampshire's state flower) line the front lawn.

 It is truly a labor of love. Their hard work shines through in this wonderful place they call home.

As much as they cherish their home, they have decided that it is time to move on and have placed their home on the market. If you know of anyone searching for paradise, let me know.

Linking up to the following parties:

  1. This is lovely.
    I especially like the photo with the caption 'Another gorgeous area in the backyard' -it looks so relaxing.

  2. All of these are just beautiful, really a showplace! I know you are all so proud, as well you should be! Thank you for sharing!

  3. Oh my, that looks like a wonderful place to stroll in the evening, and sit and meditate.

  4. What a show place! It is exquisite! Just breath taking beautiful! I just had to comment.

  5. I love to garden and I know how much it takes to keep up with even a small yard.
    Your parents must spend quite a bit of time with the upkeep. It is absoulutely lush and Beautiful!
    I love it!


  6. Whoa! Thanks for posting those pictures of your parents place. What beautiful landscape!!

    Thanks for stopping by Pink Dandy Chatter blog. Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. WOW! Gorgeous! I'm sure that someone will come along and won't be able to live without this beautiful place.

    Lilacs are one of my most favorite flowers! we had a HUGE lilac bush next to our house. I remember as a kid I used to go pick a bouquet of lilacs, knock on the front door, leave the flowers and go hide. My mom always knew who they were from but I sure felt good doing it. LOL

    Good luck to your parents on the sale of their piece of paradise.

  8. Your parents home is indeed a little piece of heaven on earth, Suzanne. I cannot see anyone who has an interest in the outdoors and gardening and is looking for a home with these features passing up this opportunity.

    I wish them nothing but happiness as they embark on their next journey together.

  9. Hi, first time here. What a very beautiful garden. My parents too did a beautiful garden flowers and vegitables, seems like too many people don't do their yard anymore and leave it to someone else. Not quite the same.


  10. Not only her tumb, what a gorgeous garden.

  11. I'm oohing and aahing over every picture then I get to the end and they are selling?? Oh my, wish I could get my hubby to transfer to NH, I would be there in a heartbeat. Their place is gorgeous!!


I love reading each and every comment and welcome any questions or feedback you may have.
