Ladies, your flowers are beautiful!!!! Thank you for sharing them with me. I am homesick for my roses and rhodies left behind in Md. They were given to me as Mothers day gifts and they were my favorites. I cried like a baby when I left my gardens. (no problem leaving the house or friends)

Default Hey, guess I figured it out!

One of the best advantages to an older home is the established yard that comes with it. Someone with a great green thumb planted all this years ago and I get to enjoy every year!

I know I love older homes for that reason. I don't think I would do new construction again....I want thosebushes outside my family room windows. How lonf did they take to grow? I saw some pretty ones this weeekend for sale but they are so tiny!!!

Your development looks so pretty!

Thanks MJ My shrubs and bushes are probably all at least 20 years old, but some may be even much older. A couple of years back I had surgery with a somewhat long recovery. One of the few pleasures I had was my beautiful yard to gaze out at from the couch every day But you know, I think my yard is actually even prettier in the fall!

Default Older vs established homes

I left Charlotte after 6 really good years there. I bought into a new neighbourhood in the University area. Even though I planted many bulbs and bushes ( roses) they were just starting to improve the landscape when I left.
In Michigan I had to leave behind the lilacs and forsythia, peonies.
I think there is definitly an advantage to an older neighbourhood that is well established. Here in Fl I am only one year into establishing a butterfly garden.It will take a few years to really see the results. Good luck w/your new home, whereever that wil be.
