A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

My Sister's Garden...

My sister is a gardener... both the vegetable kind and the flower bed kind.
She lives in an old farmhouse (where her hubby grew up) 
that has not seen any real outside alterations in all these years...

I was struck by the beauty of her rose arbor this year...


... and decided a few more pictures from around her front yard were in order....



Her daughter (my niece) also is quite the gardener and 
has her own roadside market selling beautiful fresh bouquets.
I'm loving that sliding glass door to protect the arrangements...
Even though we are 19 years apart (yes, you read that right)... 
I love my sister and am so glad she is in my life.   
In the midst of life's tough stuff - sisters can be a real blessing.

Thanks for the beautiful inspiration dear sister and friend!

Joyce, What a lovely home and garden. How blessed to have such a sister and niece; your photos capture the essence of their style. Hopeful He will transition us to a similar place when our 'listed home' sells.
Keep inspiring me with your designs. D.

Your sister is very talented! The flower arrangement in her garden is quite amazing! Seeing that everyday would surely lift up one's spirit. And it was a nice touch to add a sliding glass door to the flower arrangements. It added an elegant touch for the spot, and provided protection for the arrangement from the elements and curious passers-by.
