Even though this blog looks like my old one, Debbie-Dabble, "Debbie-Dabble Blog" is my new Blog that I created on June 23, 2016, after my old one was hacked through my Debbie-Dabble Face Book Page which I have now deleted!!

I am a Victorian Soul, live in a small townhouse, not a huge Mega Mansion, with my Hubby Joe. I recently went Part Time after working full time night shift as an RN on a Hospital based Rehabilitation( Physical Medicine) Unit for 32 years and have been in nursing for 38 years!

George Eliot was actually a pen name for a woman named Mary Anne Evans......

Spring Blooms in the Front Yard........

  In a previous post, I shared how the large slope in front of our townhouse looks with the pylox in bloom.......
 We have had a lot of rain and temps. in the 50's for the past 2 weeks.......
However, over the last 3 days, the temps. soared into the 70's and even hit 80 one day!!

Of course, I was working!!
The buds on my azaleas in the front flower bed in front of our house are popping open and are bursting with color!!

Here you can see 2 of them at the top of the slope from our parking lot......
This is how they look up on the side walk in front of our house.......
They are not quite fully opened but still look lovely!!
Love this bright pink color!!
My Deer Couple was bought by Joe 2 years ago in Wegmans for 75% off after Christmas!!
I did get to put out my Yard Art in the front of the house......
A mini flag and lantern also bought at Wegmans on clearance.......

The gazing ball was bought at Big Lot's.....
My pots are ready to plant my annuals in but a cold front is moving in and the temps. will be dropping into the 30's for the next few mornings so I am still fearful of frost.
Hopefully, next week, I will be able to buy my annuals....at least for the front.....

This is looking down the slope from the top.......
When this white azalea fully opens up, it will look like a fluffy snow ball!!

At the end of last Summer, I did get rid of some of my older yard art pieces in an attempt to simplify a bit.....
I had to have a fairy in the front flower bed!!
Another lantern......
And this red beauty!!

Again , looking up from our parking lot.....
The rhododenderon to the far right will be the next to bloom......

We bought a new Bird Bath for the flower bed under the Living Room window at Big Lot's this season......
It is stained glass with a solar light and looks lovely when lit up at night!!
They have several different patterns but I liked the butterflies the best!!
And my hens and chicks really did well over this Winter because it was not a harsh Winter.
The Front Porch is also all set up and ready for the season but I will hold off on sharing it with you until I can get my annuals planted.

I am going to stick with the same red, yellow and white theme in flowers in the front like I did last year......

I have also been trying to get the back patio and yard ready for Summer but now that I am finally off for 2 days, it will be raining and cold again!!

Maybe next week......

I did order something using the Amazon Gift Card that my son, Joey , gave me for Mother's Day......
Now what could I possibly be doing with this??????
You will have to come by and visit  again to find out!!!

And thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!
