New house is a charm....


Saturday i gave you the tutorial to this wreath... I  like this one for summer and it represents me. I like to makes things my own...


Here is the house in winter...It is the picture in the Add for the house...
Now in summer...


The front door...I love black doors...


Love the columns....


The evergreens trees are my favorite kind...So, it was perfect...Another favorite is the Cherry weeping tree....






Something driving me nuts is the asymmetry in  plantings...You can find that in older houses...as the plants died, the owners planted different plants...Very easy to fix. Just find the right plants and replace the ones that don't work... I will do that next year...


I planted pink flowers...Can't see them very well...Maybe in 1 month...


You see this white flowered bush...I took cuttings of it and placed them in a cup of water. This fall, i will be able to plant a start on the other side...



I used my garden bench here....I got it for my Birthday few years ago... Works well here...




Zacky had to be in the picture...


My linky parties are on my side bars

Bonjour Frenchy ~ SOOO pretty. I love black doors too, your wreath looks fabulous against it. Its nice to see that not everyone has a dried out brown lawn like we do ~ enjoy.

Your new house has great curb appeal. The entrance is amazing. Can't wait to see inside. I think the outside is harder than the inside when it comes to getting the look you want.

We are renting and may buy it in 1 year. I will still be planting things. I think it is so sad when a house looks like a rental...

It sounds like you are going to be good for this house. You'll spread your magic throughout and make it your own. No doubt the landscape will also look the way you want it in no time. Have fun settling in! ~ Sarah
