The boots are SO cute! Can I borrow that idea?:)

Darla said...

Tina, I find it flattering when anyone wants to borrow an idea from me. I saw one lady had painted her boots.....go for it!

Susie said...

Goodness Darla your hard work sure pays off. Everything looks so pretty.

Darla said...

Thanks Susie..I have a long way to go yet.

Sandy aka Doris the Great said...

It's so gorgeous! I love it, weeds, leaves and all.

Skeeter said...

And I thought GA gardening was awesome, ha, Florida has so much going on with its warmer temps! I just dont think of FL living with land of 2 acres! Lucky you to be in the sunshine state and have acreage…

Darla said...

Thanks so much Sandy.

Skeeter..Florida is much more than trailer park retirement, lol.

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Hi Darla, oooh I love your pretty gardens, and how lucky you are to have two wooded acres!... your mailbox looks so cute amongst your flowers and your Clematis is especially pretty!... xoxo Julie Marie

Darla said...

Julie Marie, thanks for dropping by and the kind words on my gardening.

Leedra said...

From the looks of it, there isn't much woods left, you have it all in flowers now.

Love the boots, brought a smile to my face.

Darla said...

Leedra, that is just the front yard and part of one side. The woods are out back...Glad you like the boots...plant them and forget about them.

Alison said...

That bed with the mailbox in it is just beautiful! You have so much blooming, it's great to come here and see all your flowers. It cheers me up, waiting for the rain here to go away in the PNW, and for the temps to warm up a bit.

Darla said...

Alison, I read on another PNW gardening blog that ya'll were receiving rain again..soon my dear Spring will be all around you. Thanks for enjoying your visit here.

Lona said...

Darla your garden beds are looking prettier everyday now. The mailbox bed is so pretty.

Becca's Dirt said...

Oh Darla your place is so beautiful. I love the landscaping you have done. I cannot wait to see it in person. That last photo is stunning. The coleus really make a statement here.

Darla said...

Lona, thank you. The mailbox bed is nowhere filled up yet....seedlings everywhere.

Becca, thank you as well. How nice of you to call it landscaping, I have never thought of my yard being landscaped..just random gardens around.

NanaK said...

Your gardens are filling up fast. It must be so pretty pulling into your front drive. I love that clay pottery and your arrangements in them. And, leaves and weeds? All I see is mulch and groundcover:)

Shannon said...

Love all the flowers, your garden has so many beautiful colors and blooms!

Kelsie From Our Country Home said...

I love all your lovely spaces and creative ways you have planeted and arrangef them, and thought they are looking great now, know they are going to really boom when in full flower..

I would be the lady with the painted work boots :)...ballet slipper pink to be exact, seemed fitting...though I do love yours and the ones you have shown in other posts also.

Really enjoyed your last post as well with the teens, great idea, I have been trying to convince hubby to let me have the old cinder blocks here...now he might just agree...he does not always trust my "artistic visions"

Thanks for dropping by Our "green acres" this morning lol.

Blessings Kelsie

Lois said...

I just love seeing those boots Darla. You are so creative!

Olive Cooper said...

Wow, the boots with the succulents! How cute is that? We have one acre and it is all I can do to keep up with all the grass, plants, and flowers. Of course we add to it all the time. ♥O

FlowerLady said...

Wow, 2 acres and you are doing a fantastic job with your garden spaces. Very nice, colorful, peaceful, whimsical.

I have a hard time keeping up with our 1/4 acre.

Happy Gardening ~ FlowerLady

Nanniepannie said...

Your flowers look wonderful, that's where I hope to me in another month. We could still gets some bad weather here in Tennessee.

Teresa said...

Those boots are the best!!

Zoey said...

I am loving the climbers and those boots are adorable! I see a lot of planted boots/shoes, but none so nicely planted.

I can't even imagine trying to garden on two acres! I have all I can handle on my two subdivision lots!

I am going to add you to my blog list so I can follow your lovely garden.

keewee said...

Darla it all looks so pretty. We live on 10 acres, much of it in pasture. I know, if I was younger, I would have way more garden than I do now.

Ann-Marie ~ Brambly said...

My goodness, you have a green thumb! So lovely.

Martha (MM) said...

So gorgeous as always Darla and I love your new header shot!

Grace Peterson said...

Gardening space is a wonderful thing and you do have a lot of it! Your plantings look great, so colorful, and I love your containers.

It is looking GOOD at your place! I remember when you started that bed, and look at it now!!! Is that two different clematis, or one??? It is gorgeous!!!

Darla, can I come for the weekend? More snow chances forecast for good ol' Wisconsin. Love your flower gardens and the boots, what a clever idea.

Have a great weekend!

The Sage Butterfly said...

I love the succulents in the boots. What a great way to recycle some old boots and add whimsy to the garden!

perennialgardener said...

I agree with Tina, those boots are so cute. :) You have tons of garden space, so envious.

Lola said...

Your garden is so lovely. It would be heaven to have that much property to garden in.
City here, so limited. I do try to add beauty when I can.

Lola said...

I meant to add that I use the stands that are used for arrangements as hanging pot holders for some heights.

Mac_fromAustralia said...

I love your clematis and your gorgeous pots.

sherryocala said...

Looks like you live in a manicured public park, Darla. Just plain beautiful! Every photo is gorgeous. Guess what? I love the boots, too. And all your pots and your curved driveway and your clematis. I'm impressed.

Corner Gardener Sue said...
