Oh, I love the little videos you made. Your first garden was absolutely lovely but so big and a lot of work. No wonder you eventually downsized. Your courtyard is lovely too in a much more restrained way.And always there's sweet Coco running about.
Hi Granny Marigold, Thank you for looking at the videos. I still like to look at the video of our former place once in awhile. I loved that garden best but this is the place we need to be now. Have a great week-end coming up and Happy Father's Day to your hubby. Nancy
When we down sized I did wonder how it was going to be, but in fact my garden is so much more manageable compared to the acre we had previously! Your courtyard is so full of colour and lovely plants, very pretty.
Hi Elizabethd, Thank you for watching. I have to agree my courtyard is much more manageable but still keeps me busy! Thanks for your comment! Happy small space gardening! Nancy
Your videos are just lovely. I can’t even begin to imagine how much work your first one was. I think I prefer your courtyard garden. It is so lovely and I think it would even be within my ability to take care of. :-) The sound of the running water is so calming and soothing and the flowers are just beautiful. And sweet little Coco joining you on the walk-through both is so cute. Have a lovely day and thank you for sharing with us. Blessings, Betsy
Hi Betsy, Thanks you for your nice comment. It is more within my ability to take care of now. I sure did enjoy the beauty of the previous yard but your right, it was a tremendous amount of work. I think Coco preferred our larger yard as she could chase and bark at the birds! Have a great week-end. Nancy
They are both beautiful!
Ohhhhhh, both gardens are quite lovely. Great job. Susan
Hi Shawn Ann, Thank you! Just hard to get use to not enough space to grow everything! Nancy
Hi Susan, Thank you! Glad you enjoyed them. Thank you so much for watching them and leaving a comment on my blog! Nancy
I love both of your gardens. I was just telling Hubby that when we move to the next house I would love to have stand up boxes for veggies and more pots for flowers. My knees are getting too weak to work in our yard and even the raised veggie garden is hard for me. I love how yours looks.
Wonderful videos! I love the sound of water in them - and I see lots of Coco protection!
Hi Nancy, You certainly have downsized, but I'm so happy that you still have space for a lovely garden and a place to get your hands in the dirt :) It amazes me how very much you have done in the short time since you've moved there. Check your email, I sent you links for both of the stores where I purchase fabric online.Have a sweet week.Connie :)
Hi Betty, Thanks! Raised beds are so nice. Hope you do get yours. Having a smaller yard is sometimes frustrating with all I would like to grow but this is all I can handle at this stage in my life. Glad you could see them. Nancy
Hi Margaret, Thank you! Yes, Coco owns whatever yard we have and eats too many of my things! It is a challenge! Nancy
Hi Connie, Than you! Always enjoy reading your comment. This size yard is all I can handle right now but sometimes get frustrated because I would like to grow more. Hard to pick and choose. Thanks for the links for the material. I want to get back to quilting! Have a nice week. Nancy
Oh I just adore your videos! Yes that first one is so large but oh so very beautiful. I do not know how in the world you kept it up girl. Loving, loving, loving your courtyard! So beautiful. Just love it. Hugs and blessings, Cindy
Hi Creations by Cindy, Thank you for watching the videos. That was a problem trying to keep up the bigger yard. Now I have a hard enough time trying to keep up the courtyard!! Glad you enjoyed them! Nancy
Hi Nancy :)) I LOVED seeing those videos!!! Downsizing is definitely the way to go...but I liked your yard and garden before the downsize too! :) And how peaceful to hear that running water, thank you for sharing!!!
Hi Rain, Thank you for looking! Downsizing has it's good points and it's bad points! Glad you enjoyed them. Nancy
Beautiful before and after! So glad to find you still blogging. -Vicki
Hi Vicki, Thank you! So nice to hear from you again. Have a wonderful rest of week! Nancy
Wow, you are such a great gardener!! I need to come and visit you and get some tips :) xx
Hi Joy from Days Filled With Joy, Thank you! It would be fun to have you come visit but I am no expert. Trial and error on my courtyard gardening! Nancy

It was so nice to look out my bedroom window this morning and see the Clematis blooming instead of a pile of snow. It is a rainy day agai...
