"Nothing could be finer…."

One of my mom’s favorite songs…..

……….CAROLINA IN THE MORNING….

Especially when sang by the late Judy Garland.

I used to sing it along with her…..

……….Never in my wildest of dreams did I think….

that I would be living in “Carolina”…..

  5. Your garden is looking lovely, Shirley! I remember that song. My parents had a Mitch Miller{?} album a long time ago and when we were kids, we used to put it on and sing those songs. I remember the album had the words to the songs inside and we would pull it out and sing along.

  6. What a lovely garden. I’d like to be enjoying my morning coffee rocking on your porch looking out to all this beauty. You’ll have me singing this song all day! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Absolutely loved this post! Gorgeous home, gorgeous pictures. I could spend all day on that porch humming that tune. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Your porches are just lovely. They make me want to grab a chair and rock the day away.

  13. Shirley, every time I see images of your porch, I just want to pull up a chair and have a glass of sweet tea! The hydrangeas are just gorgeous; and you’ve inspired me to add some hanging ferns to my outdoor space! Nothing could be finer!! LOL!

    I think I learned that song in school when I was in first grade. Your flowers are gorgeous! I have a bowling ball (crazy, I know) in my flowers that looks almost like that blue orb you have in your flower bed. Love the blues!
