A Garden Tour with a Surprise

My aunt's, sister's, daughter's, neighbors cottage...

no one was home...

we snuck a peek...

It was so adorable...I wanted to take you on a tour 






Do you see the window in the upper right corner of the picture above? I love how they open out...
it looks so cottage-y


and what would a cottage be...
without a potting bench...and this one is adorable












an old vintage rusty stroller turned planter...





Do you see what's out beyond the fountain?







WE INTERRUPT THIS 
REGULAR SCHEDULED GARDEN 
TOUR FOR A PRISON BREAK



I happened to glance back at my sister's

Isn't her Clematis beautiful?


But let me crop the picture, cause I've got to see that little face up close...


"Grandma...I wanta come too"
He isn't saying to many audible words yet...
but I just know that's what he's yacking about!

The kido's should be included for the rest 
of the tour anyway...




WE NOW RETURN TO OUR 
REGULAR SCHEDULED 
GARDEN TOUR

back to the view beyond the fountain...
I'll take ya in a little closer...




A MUST SEE!

 Quaint and Cozy 1 room Playhouse...
 exterior has many upgrades...
  
custom windows...



fancy front porch
made for easy cleanup
(of drippy ice cream cones)



Easy access to transportation...



Beautiful yard with 
well maintained country gardens...



Nature abounds....





spacious, immaculate interior
fully furnished, with vintage furniture...






all window coverings included...

comes with extra seating for quests...





beautiful cathedral ceilings...



Better hurry...


This one won't stay vacant long!



Thanks for stopping by today!
I really appreciate ever single one of you...and so enjoy reading every single comment I get!

Oh...and by the way...we did confess our trespass to the homeowner...
and was given her blessing to post these pictures!

Still counting my blessings...


Making decisions, and not looking back

My sister, who is battling cancer, looking to, and depending on God to see her through. 

A safe trip to and from Michigan, 

listening to my grandkids laugh and have fun together as they play

a beautiful day and a barbecue at my sister’s

watching my mom and dad...Enjoying my grandchildren
Don't know who that is next to my mom...
but she was enjoying my grandson too!

  9. Well I'm glad you trespassed so the rest of us could enjoy the beautiful gardens. Your grandkids are just adorable! What sweet little faces ... I wanna squeeze their cheeks (in a good way, of course)! I love that last photo of your parents watching your grandson on the carousel (and that unidentified woman beside them). The joy on your parents' faces is simply priceless.
