46 years...Part 1


A few weeks ago I wrote a post about DH and I 'babysitting' plants for some friends who are selling their home. 
DH reckons we have 100 or so extra plants which are tucked into any available space in our yard. 

Well the packing up is almost done and there is just some vacuuming of empty rooms still to come. DH took some photos at our friends' home yesterday.
Once you would not have seen the ground as there were so many plants...the ones left are staying as they are not in pots.



In the last 3 weeks or so, the removalists have been bringing empty shipping containers over at predetermined times. They then pack the container with the boxes of household items etc and the container is then taken to a storage facility until it's time to deliver the containers to the new address. 
Yesterday there was one container down the driveway and one on the street bear the front door...they were to be packed/filled from 9am this morning. 

This house has been home to our friends for 46 years and part of my life for 39 years. Many of the plants in my gardens ( I've had 3 homes in that time) have come from plants, seedlings and cuttings from this garden. My children played in this garden...

Aren't we all young here? Lol

There were lots of Llhasa Apso puppies born here, including my girls' childhood dog, Reggie...
( P and G were registered breeders for a number of years) 
Next post we'll take a peek inside the house...

Wow, 46 years in one home, lots of possessions (& plant pots!) accumulated in that time - I hope their move goes smoothly.

That's a long time you have been neighbors and friends and I imagine it's very difficult to say goodbye. Of course no one can take away all those treasured memories.

Must be hard to leave all the memories after 46 years. Hugs....

What a big job, this move.
Such lovely memories of that home.
