Garden Pics...



Some pictures from my garden...  August 15,  2019
(Click on the picture to enlarge and get a closer look.)














It is breathtaking this year and the pictures do not do it justice.  I am happy to share the beauty with my neighbors and visitors.  I have so many people tell me how much they enjoy either walking by or driving by and some even stop to tell me that it is so pretty.  I enjoy all the work involved in making it this way.  And I love all the little surprises that I find also.  For instance,  I found that weeds actually help to mulch the soil and keep it from drying out.  I had a lot of them this year,  thanks to all the heat we have had this summer.  I have replaced a lot of them (the weeds and grasses) with real bark mulch,  now that the temperatures have gotten back to the 80's where they belong.  I love being out there,  working,  sweating,  whatever.  It will be gone all too soon,  as the temperatures start getting cooler  and Fall and Winter set in!  And so the cycle continues...

'Til next time,  Love ya,  Jean

Oh my, I knew you had beautiful gardens, but I was totally unprepared for just HOW beautiful! I would love to walk along those paths oohing and aahing over each sweet branch and blossom. And, being a gardener myself, I can vouch for all the back-breaking work and sweat that goes into creating such a magnificent place. Summer will be over soon, for sure, but I can imagine that your magnificent gardens will still be lovely right into fall and winter.

Your yard is beautiful. I could see myself wanting to stop and take a look at all the flowers. It must take a lot of your time; but so worth it with seeing your results. I hope all your neighbors appreciate you and the wonderful scenery you bring to the neighborhood.
