My World: We’ve Made Some Changes

Our new house in Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. September, 2002.

This is my post for the My World meme.  It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, and Fishing Guy.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

The picture above was taken on the day we closed on our house back in 2002.  We fell in love with the house the first time we saw it.  We still love it.

The front of our house. August 23, 2010.

But we’ve made some changes in the yard, as you may be able to see from this second picture.  We’ve added the flag pole (at the extreme right of the picture), the flower beds around the lamp post and the dogwood tree (there’s one more around a redbud tree to the right of the picture), and the three rose beds — two on each side of the driveway and one near the road.  We’ve also added the roses in the containers along the driveway.

This time of the year you are more likely to find us out in the yard or on the deck in back, than in the house itself.  But  that’s the way it is in our world.

    Your home is lovely with the addition of the flower beds, flag pole etc. I know the roses give you so much joy and I appreciate that you and Betsy share them with us. Just wish I could smell them!

    I’m also seeing a bush against the house that wasn’t there before. I love the little wall around the lamp post, That really stands out and adds class to the yard. I don’t think I’ve seen a picture of your house from across the street, so I can see the whole wide driveway and garage, as well. It’s beautiful.
