Sweet Daughter's Gardens

Good Monday morning, I hope you had a fun, relaxing weekend.  My daughter who lives in the state of Washington sent me an email filled with photos of her lovely yard and flower gardens.  So, I will share them with you today.

I really love the last photo, somehow, it brings to mind lazy sun drenched days swinging lazily on a tire swing.  I know my grand children enjoy the swing very much and spend a lot of time there, fussing about whose turn it is and then swinging joyfully, as children do.

I hope you enjoyed!

I love it, too, Cindy! The swing I had growing up (called a monkey swing) was one of my favorite things in our yard. I could swing on it for hours and just dream! Enjoyed seeing your daughter's pretty yard.

Such a peaceful looking garden Caroline has! Beautiful! The decorating apple did not fall far from the tree eh. Love the tire swing. Don't see them much anymore but I sure remember enjoying the tire swing we had as children. Thanks to both of you for sharing.

Good morning Cindy,
Your daughter's garden is very sweet and I love, love, love her red doors! Oh and I have wonderful childhood memories of a swing my sisters and I use to have hanging from a huge olive tree in our back yard...such fun times. Hope you had a wonderful weekend my dear friend.

Hugs and Kisses,

Good evening (or is it morning for you) Cindy,
Your daughter's garden reminds me of my childhood! My father also made us a wing in the garden and we used them hours and hours while there was a small cassette recorder playing our favorite music!
Have a nice warm week my friend!(Here it is such a nice weather!)

It is me again. I should have written SWING instead of WING! How funny isn't it?!

Hey friend! I'm back, for a little while anyway. Boy, your daughter has a gorgeous yard. Looks like a great place to spend time outside. Love the gray and red too. Hope all is well with you and yours. I've missed you. Trying to get caught up and still unpacking. Talk soon!

I love the rope and tire swing!!

Your daughter has a beautiful well cared for garden. That swing brings back many memories. I bet your grandchildren love it.
Thank you for your comment about my dad's paintings.
As for the name on my blog, it is not for the painting but for the 3 arbors we have on our property, I should only hope that they someday look as beautiful as his painting.

Hi Cindy,

I visited a Cindy but I am not sure if it was you. Then when she visited me, I couldn't get into her site. You profile photo looks familiar, but going through your older posts, I can't see any of my comments.

Anyway, glad to visit anyone from canada. I spent my first university years in Windsor canada, so I have a special feeling for Canada.

The tyre swing your daughter has, my husband made one for the kids when we were in an apartment in Singapore. I got the disused tyre, lug it 4 storeys up, and my husband could say no. He borrowed a drill from the university lab. We had the best and only tyre swing in Singapore.
