Michelle's Garden -A Kindred Soul For Sure

I discovered this darling little yard and house when I went to a garage sale right next door.
I knocked on the door to see what magical person had created such a cute little place.  She wasn't home her husband said.  He told me when I could catch her. 

He told me that she takes care of it herself.  He also told me that she had asked him for a little red wagon for her birthday and had hauled in all the rocks in it and designed each flower bed.  He also told me that she cares for the lawn herself with a push mower.

I met her and she was just as I suspected, a magical little sprite with bright red hair and a love that shows in everything she touches.

Wouldn't you know I'd find her, she's another rock person!!  Here's a window ledge full of heart shaped rocks which she said "find her."

Here's the inviting front porch with the gaily colored columns.  The little
Victorian type house is neatly painted and surrounded
by a neat white fence.

I'm so glad to discover Michelle's little yard and to share it with you.

Oh how neat, Diane... That little house and yard is adorable. I'm sure that Michelle is a sweetheart also.. She has to be --to have a yard like that. Glad you met that special little lady.

You are so cute in the post below, my friend! What, wear a dress? And not wear my jeans? Never! Ok maybe to church.

Beautiful yard! I look forward to the day when I can sell the downtown condo and get a small house with a real yard!
