My Wonderful Neighbor!

This is my watering buddy Chloe...
She follows me around the yard, like she is helping me out, by the time we had made our rounds she was warn out!!! LOL

Last week I took care of the cat and the flowers for the next door neighbor while they were away for a few days...

We have lived next door to each other for about 15 years, she is the one who inspired me to plant more flowers. I have always loved looking at all her flowers and herbs she has planted since she moved in...

We have become great friends and love sharing flowers with each other over the years...
Sitting on the porch in the evenings, talking and laughing....
My little Secret Garden is even Named after her Grand Daughter....
Summer is definitely our time of the year....

But I started planting and I haven't stopped...

Her containers are beautiful...


She just has that eye for planting in so many unique containers, and they always look fabulous!

Look how cute this looks!!!



This one she named after a dear friend... Her Linda Lily...
She shared this one with me but it still hasn't bloomed yet...

A beautiful back yard, with this wonderful garden and a beautiful antique bird bath I just love...

Lots of Black eyed Susan's in full bloom...


This was a great find last summer at the beach, my husband would have never let me bring something this big home from the beach!!! LOL Besides it would never fit in the car with everything else!!!

Another great planter of Galardia and Lobilia...

This one is Clarie,one I planted from seed this spring, Why do hers look better then mine???

Naked Ladies, they are just now blooming and beautiful!!!



See they are beautiful...


And Naked no leaves...
So you can see why I love living next to this wonderful neighbor, I hope we grow "YOUNG" together. RIGHT NEXT DOOR!!!
Have A Good One,
Lynn

What an inspiration to have a neighbor like that. This summer I am glad that I don't have any like that, they would be disgraced with my flowers. Love looking at all of you pics.

What fun you two must have. I love chairs planted like that. That blue one and the planting is so pretty.Once I wanted to pick up an old white bed frame for my garden...that didn't go over so well. Needless to say it never made it to my garden.

It is always so nice when you have a neighbor that shares your passion for flowers and you can share back and forth.
I see you got your background figured out. I love the new look.

Backgrounds are like rooms, my husband says I don't just clean a room I redecorate!!! LOL I just moved everything lastweek in the family room.

Your watering buddy sure is cute.I wish I had a neighbor who loved gardening. I like the use of different items for planting. I like the chair and the tea pot. I like the new look for your blog.
