The azaleas are now finished and last week the rhododendrons started to bloom. Oh my, how beautiful!!
These are in front of the living room windows.
At the side of the house
Another view from the front porch.
These are hydrangeas.
I was told they usually bloom from the stalk
but with our harsh winter, the stalks died.
Thank goodness they are hardy enough to not be totally gone.
But, they won't bloom this year.
Really, I'm just so thankful to have them.
Yesterday I worked at the old house. We are having a yard sale there on Saturday. My first yard sale ever! So much to do to get ready.........would have been easier to give it all away.
The rest of the family worked here at the new house. Dale worked at putting up ceiling tile in our area in the basement. Corey hung some pictures. Christy and I tried to make decisions about where to hang more pictures after I got back home. We tried moving some furniture in different spots in the living room to see where we liked the placement best. We have another old piece that we want to refinish which will go in that room...actually there are two old pieces that we'd like to refinish, not sure both will go in that room though. Anyway, we just can't seem to figure it out, ugh. We need a designer...wait, I have a very talented nephew who is a designer =). Too bad he is very busy in DC....and sometimes around the world!
Our challenging room -
Looking from the foyer.
Looking from the dining room.
That couch is very heavy so we need to place it where it will stay. It won't be staying in that spot. We tried, we don't like. I'm sure we will figure it out someday!
Besides the yard sale, I'm working on a baby shower for our daughter, Greta, in June. And our grand, Aidan, has a birthday June 7 and there will be parties for that. Our real estate agent is planning a housewarming for us also in June. We hope to settle on our old property the end of June...that means the house must be empty and clean by then. Whew, June will be a crazy month!!
Time to make dinner again.....my days go so very fast. Bless you today!
