{springing forward ...}


Happy new week friends!

Are you excited about the time change? It's always tough to lose an hour BUT I love the hope of spring, and coming home from work in the daylight! My mind has begun to turn to all things outdoors, and as I look through my pinboards I've realized I'm drawn to very specific spaces. I seem to pin photos of very manicured lanscaping, often bilaterally symmetrical, and almost ALWAYS involving boxwood hedging and white hydrangeas. LOVE! Those limelight hydrangeas really get my heart singing:

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Love it! And it goes to show, you don't need a huge amount of space to make things beautiful. Are you starting to daydream about getting outdoors? What are you drawn to, perfectly manicured landscaping or english gardens that roam natural & free?

I agree with you. Small balconies and gardens can also be amazing when they are decorated beautifully.

I've been dreaming about spring and outdoors for ages! I'm so over this long winter and all the snow! These pictures are absolutely perfect and dreamy, and so inspiring! Now I want to plant hydrangeas in front of my building :) Seriously, if one day I have a house, I want it to have a garden just like this! Gorgeous!

Happy Monday!

Yes, dreaming the same dream! The funny thing is, if you were to check out my garden board on interest, you would find many of the same images...!

I'm super excited for spring to arrive!!!! There are buds popping up everywhere in my backyard which makes me happy because then I know that the stuff I planted last year survived and will greet me again this year. Whew!!!

Perfectly dreamy. I wish I could grow hydrangea here in the high desert but, alas no. I have a boxwood hedge, though, and it is my favorite part of my garden.

Thank you for the gorgeous images!

I too love an extra hour of daylight in the afternoon but could do without the 6" of snow last Friday and now the torrential rain - welcome to March in Connecticut! I love your garden looks, especially the walkway with the peegee hydrangeas and low grasses... a possible new look for my garden. Thank you for sharing!
