What's Blooming?


The rusty wheel barrow is always parked here.

 Hammock time anyone?

The rusty wheel barrow, found by Joe on the roadside, is used weekly at the yellow house in the flower garden and yard. We would not like a shiny new one.
I will cut and arrange some hydrangeas very soon for the table and then to dry.

grace surrounds us


  1. Your hydrangeas are beautiful Olive! Looks like the 'barrow is in the perfect spot for the first pic:@)

  5. I wish I had hydrangeas like that. No, I have one. One stinking flower on my bush. I have got to move it to a better spot.

  6. So pretty Olive. Mike and I are looking for something rusty and old to put in our garden. Wish we could find one curbside too. Have a wonderful weekend.

  7. Hi Olive, I want to come lay in the hammock and just admire your gorgeous Hydrangeas... can't believe Joe found that wonderful old wheelbarrow on the side of the road... yippee!... xoxo Julie Marie

  15. Oh soooo pretty...I so wish my would still look this good when the wedding bells start ringing around here (July 23).


  16. Your blue hydrangea is just beautiful and it matches the hammock.

  17. Dear Olive,
    Your rusty wheelbarrow reminds me of our one. When my husband pushes it, it squeaks so much that I'm suprised that the neighbours don't complain!! Our daughter bought us a new one but, it's just not the same so we continue using our squeaky one.
    Your hydrangeas are beautiful. They don't come out here until the early Autumn. XXXX

  18. What beautiful hydrangeas! I love the blue flowers and hammock,so lovely! My hydrangeas are just now starting to bloom, I can't wait!

  19. Me again..wait...I know good and well I left a comment on here over the weekend about these gorgeous hydrangeas....I told you about our sweet neighbor when I was a little girl named Mrs. Headley who was like a grandmother to me..she had hydrangeas all across the front of her porch...I loved her must have got so excited I forgot to hit the post button...any way I love this post...I always plant a hydrangea in my yard in remembrance of her...thanks so much for coming by girl...and did you say you SLEEP on your vintage pillowcases!!!! Oh my word girl..say it ain't so! lol You just need to send them to me and I'll hang them up or frame them or something...I just can't bring myself to sleep on them...well I was gonna send you a pair of vintage ruffled pantaloons for Christmas but knowing you'd just put them on before Santa could get back up the can scratch that idea! lol lol Have a great day sweetie...Picket
