|H found me a bale of alfalfa at the feed store to put in our wheel barrow..... and and of course, I promptly filled it with pink silk geraniums.|
|The wheel barrow is made to transport two bales of hay .|
|The frame, handles, and front wheel are made of steel....the bed is made from wood|
|Our new garden helper....lol!|
|Remember when every lady wore one of these bonnets to work in the yard?|
|I wanted to show you some pictures of how great the back yard looks this spring. The same company had taken care of this yard for 20 years and the grass was looking worse and worse every year. So, H decided to let them go and take care of it himself.|
|We lived in a town house before we moved here and the yard was taken care of by the association. So, we hadn't owned a mower or any yard stuff forEVER! H bought a riding mower....he looks so cute out there riding around!|
|H put a great fertilizer on the grass and it has really greened up in a short time.|
|See you soon.......xoxo, Penny|
Oh my word, your yard is amazing and I love the wheelbarrow. Hugs, martyReplyDelete
Je ne crois pas avoir vu un tel jardin auparavant ! Le jardin du bonheur...
She looks so cute there. I have a wooden cart but over the years - it has to be totally rebuilt. Hopefully when we retire Hubby can do it as I love those wooden pieces. Yours is wonderful!ReplyDelete
Love it. It's all just beautiful.ReplyDelete
Love the wheel barrow flower basket...great way to recycle! Lovely garden!ReplyDelete
You have a wonderful yard, Penny. I really like that wheelbarrow. I have never seen one made just to haul two bales of hay like that either. What a great find that is. My grandmother used to wear a bonnet like that when she was out working in the garden- xo DianaReplyDelete
Your yard is lovely! And the grass looks so good. What kind of fertilizer did H use? I need some of that. I have an old wheelbarrow with a steel wheel in my front yard that I usually grow nasturtiums in during the summer. It's still full of snow right now....ReplyDelete

I love the yard..the wheel barrow..the scarecrow...the 'window hothouse'...lovely and creative all! BUT....you have to tell me what the little fence is made of...the one with the iron bed frame gate...What are the posts made from that makes up the actual fence.....so cute! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
I have been looking for a vintage wheelbarrow for my backyard...the search goes on...thanks for sharing on the Thursday Blog Hop!ReplyDelete
What an amazing wheel barrow. I never saw one like that but there are not too many farms around here....
The Amish used to wear hats like that around southern Pa.
Your yard looks lovely. When we had grass in our tiny back yard, I prided myself on how grass it was. I used to take care of it like crazy. inherited that from my Dad, his grass was always beautiful!! Sometimes I miss having the grass but I do love my flower beds...
It is in the 60's here and may hit 70 this weekend and I am off!! Whoa!! Spring has finally come to NEPA!!
Oh...Penny, your yard looks wonderful. The whell barrow is such beautiful. I love your spring decorsReplyDelete
How beautiful and what a fun idea!!! Would love for you to stop by and share this on The Wednesday Roundup Link Party! http://lemoinefamilykitchen.com/2014/04/wednesday-roundup-week-20-link-party/ReplyDelete
From the side your garden lady looks almost real. How cute. I love the hay wagon. What fun you will have decorating it for all seasons. I have two old wheelbarrows, but they are metal...and I did have a third one given to me by my daughter that I loved...but it finally fell apart. I was able to just save a few part of it... very sad. It was in the falling apart stage when I took it home (she moved and had no room for it) so I had fun playing with it. Yours is so unique!!! Adorable.ReplyDelete
Pretty darn cute!! I wish I had your potting shed Penny!!ReplyDelete
love the wheel barrow what a great addition to all your lovely decorReplyDelete
Adorable! I just bought a few silk geraniums this year. I seem to kill my hanging baskets every year in this Hot NNC weather. They look really good too! Very real. The birds are even making nests in the baskets I just hung on my porch.ReplyDelete
Your neighbors must adore your backyard, is your front yard this beautiful??? Thank you for sharing your post with us today!ReplyDelete
I got such a kick out of the garden helper and how H got the bale of hay made for you, he is such a sweetie pie and dang yes the yard is so lush and green. H can come and do my yard now too.ReplyDelete
Lost for words again....love it all. HPS MichelleReplyDelete
That looks fun .... what a cute idea. :)ReplyDelete
I love the wheelbarrow Penny, it looks like it would be perfect to move around flats of flowers too! The lawn looks so lush and green! It is a wonderful thing when you see the hubby working in the yard.ReplyDelete
Wow- soooo pretty! Love the yard too!ReplyDelete
Happy Pink Saturday,

Sure wish our yard was this green already! What an amazing yard. I'm pinning this to our DIY Sunday Showcase talent board! Thanks for sharing with us!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the memories.ReplyDelete
When you talked about ladies wearing sunbonnets in the garden, my Aunt Irene in her bonnet came to mind. I loved that sweet lady who died when I was about 7.
What a great buy and fun display you created for it. Love it.ReplyDelete
Love it, everything looks so beautiful :)ReplyDelete
Love this wheelbarrow! Beautiful yard! Thanks for sharing at Your Designs This Time!ReplyDelete
