This flag was given to me a few years back...I love it. Unfortunately it's getting pretty faded and a bit 'tattered. I've been looking for a new one but haven't found one I like as well as this. It looks so pretty when the breeze 'opens it ' .

Love the maltese flag and your yard is so pretty!! I love the old fashioned day lillies.......my yellow ones are blooming now. They remind me of my grandmother's yard. I could not find the orange so I bought the yellow from a lilly farm called O'lallies or something like that.

I see the babies running and playing in the background....such a beautiful yard!!!

Ah! The perfect finishing touch to a beautiful yard. :aktion033:


p.s. in case you're interested you can have your own fluffs pictures on a garden flag....you can order one from a place called Windsations (I think that's the name)...I should look it up before I open my big mouth :unsure:

I love the daylilies too.. in fact love all th 'old-fashioned' flowers that I recall in our yard as a kid like lilacs, forcythia sp?, Rose of Sharon ( found the hummingbirds LOVE these so have several around the yard and don't have to bother with the feeders. We're pretty 'country' but only 5/10 mile into town. Surrounded by farm so I like to have the yard have a 'casual' but 'controlled' feel....the 'controlled' is the hard part! LOL

Yes the twirps enjoy wandering in the yard... I have them on long rope tethers so they 'think' they are free but not! LOL

I love your yard flag! I have one like that in the small size. I found several on Ebay with Malts on them but now I get mine with the girls picture on them.
Your yard looks so inviting, I'll bet Naddie and Quincy look being out in that big yard.

I just can't get over how gorgeous your yard is! I'm having yard envy. I've not been able to work in my yard much this past couple of summers and it shows. :(

Thank you all for the lovely compliments on my yard. It's rather 'primative' with very little 'formal landscaping'... but I love that type atmosphere. I do find it very 'serene' and though not 'fancy' it's my little "haven". LOL
We have more crabgrass and clover in the yard than grass but we gave up long ago. The nearby fields give a continuous 'feeding' of the weeds on a windy day....one good thing is ...in a draught ,our lawn still stays nice and green! LOL weeds don't mind draught! LOL

Your yard is beautiful! Makes me miss Dutchess County so much! Down here the sandy soil makes it good for golf course, not so good for grass.

Your yard is so impressive and I love the real Maltese on it the best. :thumbsup:I just love the serene look and feel to it. Funny Marj mentioned Dutchess County because that's where my mom's farm was and we had huge lawns (5 acres that I mowed thankfully on a power mower- no one had landscapers those days) that were grass, clover and weeds. But it always looked luxuriously green and we didn't use any of those chemicals that I think are cancer causing. My mom had peonies, lilacs, rose of sharon, flox, roses, and tons of other flowers and berry bushes. And then a big vegetable garden.:aktion033:

Now as a grown up living in an apartment --I leave my "backyard" to the NYC Parks Dept. :HistericalSmiley: I have a pot of herbs on my window sill. :blush: My yard in Vermont is impossible. First year we built it i bought about 100 tulip bulbs, someone at my job was ordering too, to plant in our first home with a yard. With every shovel into the ground we'd hear "CLUNK." Rock everywhere. My DH said the only way we'd be able to plant is with dynamite. :w00t::w00t: So I do container planting and hanging baskets.

I love the Maltese yard flag! And, your yard is awesome - yes I have a very bad case of yard envy.

I still need to get the girls out on their long tethers, but I have this whole disaster scenario playing out in my mind! So many things to wrap themselves around that I know I'll spend the whole time untangling them (I think we already had this conversation!!!! ROFL). :)

Oh I love a natural looking yard just as much as one with formal landscaping. Really depends on the setting and the house. So why is it that your weedy yard looks green and lush and my weedy yard has taken on a yellow and white hue due to the weeds that produce teeny tiny yellow flowers and clover.:angry: I've not found anything to kill the weeds really well that's not toxic. I had read about cornmeal, but didn't get it down in time. Also don't know if that would work in grass. It said to put it in a spreader and spread on the top soil. So maybe they are thinking really large gardens. Sure wish I had your weeds. :(

We live in Pleasant Valley does that sound familiar?,,,,though I grew up more in the Verbank/Millbrook area. Spent lots of summer days when I was very young in Standfordville with my cousins.. My mom had nursing home in Amenia for several years. Do these towns sound familiar to you?
You'd probably not recognize some of the rural area...many farms have sold and developments cropped up. Lots of people from Westchester and below have moved into the surrounding areas and many commute to the city from Poughkeepsie.
Oh ans yes we DO have lots of rocks...very hard to create gardens.. Over the years have pulled rocks, filled with nice soil and before you know it more rocks have 'crept up!'.. talk about "rock gardens" LOL !!!
We wanted to put in an inground pool many many years ago but no way!! we have a 'mountain' of blue-stone onder all that crabgrass.. had to blast to do it.. and we just didn't want to get into all that.

If I couldn't get the one I have that first link I kind of like. I couldn't see any demensions though. I saw one flag online that I loved but it was one of those small ones and since we have it on our antique sleigh I want the big size.
Thanks for posting those!
