...the cottage farmhouse ~ (part one)

~ the cottage farmhouse ~
(part one)

I have been waiting to share with you,
photos from my visit
to mom's sweet cottage farmhouse.
I took Alot of them
and have decided to break them down into parts
(hence the part one!)
I will call this
the cottage ~ front view
 ~ so ~

from the moment your foot hits the lovely brick entrance
you get a sense of peace on this old farm land
and although,
once upon a time,
it was truely a working farm "farm"
in a wide open space,

over the years
(many, many years!!)
it has become
 this lovely cottage farmhouse

 in the suburbs...

my grandmother raised her babies here ~
and though she is no longer with us
 my mom now cultivates the love and happiness here...

roses spill out
all over the property ~
just calling to be snipped and brought inside for continual delight...

or perhaps,

slipped into a glass canning jar that has been tied off with a vintage lace ribbon
 for a simple but lovely bouquet 

...for anyone who may ask

as she frequently will have a passer byer stop and inquire
if they may have just a snippet
or two!

these are vintage hydrangeas
 that were started from bare root just three short seasons ago
their colors are simply amaaaazzzing
and everytime you look at them
they go and change their hue!
...just like a kaleidoscope
inside these natural green boundries
are many beautiful, seasonal flowers
such as the beloved peony bushes & lilac trees
...they are long done blooming
but they show spectacular in this secret garden!!  

...a swing is located under the front trees
to sit and read a tale
...or two...
as one may leisurely sip
 a fresh squeezed lemonade
...and dream....

afternoon summer delights

don't get me wrong ~
there is MUCH work to be done
 at this (or any other) farmhouse

but for now
it's just nice to feel the breeze...
and be a small part of it :)

coming soon...
(part two)
...the inside is like a dollhouse!!!


  1. How utterly adorable, can't wait to see more and I'm sure the rest is beautiful as well. Her yard is gorgeous and pristine. Love the hydrangeas and the colors look wonderful. Love that old vintage look of a farmhouse. Exciting to see someone live in an old farm house!

  2. There is nothing lovelier than an old farmhouse! Your mother's is so pretty and the garden is heavenly.

  4. Hi Rosemary,
    What a beautiful little farmhouse. It's so pretty and the garden and flowers are amazingly beautiful. I can't wait to see the inside.


  5. Your mother's farm house and yard looks so inviting. The front porch for enjoying a cup of tea and the fresh air. I will be anxious to see the inside. I love all of her flowers. They are so pretty. Have a good day.

  9. Oh such a beautiful place. I would be in pure heaven there. I always love going home to my mom's beautiful home and garden that she takes such pride in. She has a little potting shed that is so cool and I always think how adorable it would be turned into an art studio! Thanks for sharing these lovely pictures.
