Hi everyone! What joy and satisfaction I get when I'm in the garden. I wish I could spend all my waking hours out there! I go out as much as I can to prep the flower beds and curse the deer for walking through them!

Here are my first Primroses - glad one of them is red!

Has any of you traveled down Memory Lane? Or Lovers Lane, for that matter of fact? I've been down each many a time - they're both in my little town of Medway! Katherine's best friend lives on Lovers Lane (when she's not in college).

My favorite house in town is on Lovers Lane. Yellow with green shutters is my favorite house color combo, and this has it, along with an adorable screen door . . . and a red barn/garage!

Memory Lane is closer to my house, off the street that Jade's school is on.

Just thought I'd throw this pic in, too. It's my second favorite house in town. I don't know why, there's really nothing special about it, but I enjoy driving by it four times a day when I take Becky to school and pick her up! When you look at the enlarged pic, you can see the table and stools better that are in the front yard. I don't know if they're stone or faux, but they remind me of mushrooms - so cute!

Have a pleasant week!

I love the Primroses! I don't know which I like better. I love color, red especially and I love the white with the little yellow center. Just gorgeous Carol. Thanks for hosting Rednesday!

I'm with you, I love to look at different houses - some of which call my name! And what lovely flowers. My senior mom is just starting her gardening projects IF the frost would stop coming back. :)

Are y'all joining in on the fun at the 5 Minutes for Mom Ultimate Blog Party 2012? I am - it's a fun way to meet new blog friends and maybe even win a fun prize or two. And as I meet fellow grandparents, caregivers, or others of special interest, I'll be talking about them at SandwichINK. If any of you are going to be there, do let me know - it would be fun to write about friends from Rednesday who are party-ing with us at the UBP12 :) And you'll notice even my granddog wants all of You to join in the fun :) (Yes, I know - his mama told me I was being QUITE cheesy about it - and of course, I was - and enjoying it thoroughly, as was he :) ).

Have a blessed week.

Isn't it fun having your favorite houses that you drive by everyday?
Sometimes I drive a particular route just to see the house I love.

Your photos are great this week. Loved them all. But, in honesty it is the street names that Ice the cake. I am always hunting out those unusually named street to photograph.

Thanks for all you do hosting this red-fest each week.

★Carol★ said...

There sure are alot of pretty homes in your town! I love that yellow and green one too. I've tried talking my husband into replacing our front or back door with a screen one, but no luck so far. Your primroses are looking lovely!
Happy REDnesday,

I like the red barn with the yellow house. I always wanted an older home never a new one .

It is fun to still dream about living in one someday

Gloria said...

Hello, I came to visit -- I love RED! :)
I happened to see, on your right side bar, that you are looking for a new yellow bowl. I checked on ebay for you, and I saw a few! So just go to ebay.com, and then, in the Search bar, type: yellow fire king bowl, and you'll see them! Good luck in getting one!

Hi Sue, I too could spend every waking hour in the garden. It truly is therapy for me. Love both of the houses you shared and how fun to live on streets with such cute names. Thanks for hosting!

I love houses...I have a thing for certain ones. Yellow is my fav color so that house is precious although I'm partial to red too. There's a house I love now that is a pale yellow with red trim and shutters....LOVE!!!!
