Here are some photos to share with you on this visit. And it's worth your time to meander around the gardens in person or just awe the photos we took yesterday.
There are quite a few, so take your time as you stroll through, also I didn't enlarge all of the photos, so if you want a better look just increase the size.
Enjoy! This lovely experience is located at 67 Mill Road, Warren Grove, PEI. The little road is just off of Warren Grove Road. The toll to get off the Island is $45.50, you can just drive on and the toll is only if you leave the island.
The linens, lace, & landscape...
Just another reason why I don't throw scrap fabric out!
They do say opposites attract...how true! All I know is I'm one very lucky woman to have him in my life!!
Down south in the USA, the porches are painted this shade to keep evil spirits away from the house. I just love the airy atmosphere it creates inside the porch!
We had such a wonderful time that day! I felt bad as it was about a 7 hour drive that day & the next morning Bill & Nicholas let for their trek back to Ontario. A 16 hour drive that Bill wanted to do in one day.
I miss them already but they'll be back in New Brunswick on the Labour Day weekend. :-)
Back at the Hardwicke Homestead-----
I asked them to bring up this piece of wood that washed up on our shore. It could be used as a sail's mass by the pond as it's a straight as an arrow!
Is that my husband flexing his muscles at me?! lol
But like everything else, it will have to wait till they return & the woods will have to wait too. But with the clearing that Mitchell did last year & the trench drainage dug under the road to the trench on the otherside, recently done to stop the woods from flooding every spring. The grounds will be drier & the mosquitoes will have to find another source of dampness.
Everything is coming together when I view it as a whole, I just have the patience that everything should've been done yesterday. We've come a long way in the three years of being here...
With so much more to do!
I just love this piece of heaven that we have been brought to! It feels like home. :-)
This is going to be a busy week but I'll have camera in hand to share it with you!
I'm placing several items in the Napan Fair! And midweek, all the 'Miramichi rug hookers' are going to Bonar Law Common, for some fun & hooking this week too!
It will be a fun - fast week in Northern New Brunswick this week!
Do take in the Napan Fair if your in the area, something for everyone! Fair's - yikes that's the closing fun of summer!!
FYI - I heard the staccato bug & my English Grandpa Art, would say "As soon as you hear the first Staccato sing...mark your calendar as first frost comes in 6 weeks. My date is September 14th! I'll let you know how accurate Grandpa was.
I sure miss him. We use to sit on the glider outside, on the porch & we would glide & talk about this - that- & the other. He was such a sweet man & always called me Bridget?! Never knew why, it was his pet name for me.
When I hear the staccato bug - I always think of Grandpa Haynes, such a sweet man & I'm happy he was in my life back then & to have these wonderful memories. My father's dad died in 1942 of TB &I never knew him. But my mom's English born father, his memories warm the cockles of my heart. He will always live on in warm happy memories, such as the singing of this bug!
Thanks for visiting.
Have a great week!
