My Friend Jackie...




My friend Jackie not only can decorate like a professional she also has a green thumb. Here are some photos of her yard. She actually has just sold this place as her husband is now retired and they will be moving closer. YEAH! I can NOT tell you how excited I am about that. It will still be some what of a drive to see her but not 12 hours.

So back to this green thumb. She lives in a very, hot area during the summer, so it is a bit of a challenge to keep things green and growing but she does it. One of the things I love about her yard is the fence that is around it. She fenced in part of her yard and then there is additional yard on the other side. Because her yard is so beautiful I just had to join Tootsie and Fertilizer Friday. Please click on her name and it will take you to a land of enchantment, especially if you are a gardener.

What I wish I had is photos of her home. They bought an older home when they moved from CO to KS and the work that she did to it is amazing. She thought when they put it up for sale that it would take some time to move it. They had an offer immediately, like that same day. I wasn't surprised as this house is more than adorable.

Now back to the yard - enjoy the photos.
