Happy 4th to you and yours.... We have a big family day planned --with lots of traditional food and tons of laughter!!!!!Hugs,Betsy
Oh my how things change. our gardening and landscaping has grown so much from my (long) last visit. Stay cool my friend.
Hello!Time flows so fast ... the present tense will consume me. But I am!Beautiful garden, lots of greenery. Beautifully :)to hear
I can't wait to see how you plant the front garden bed, now that the Bermuda looks like it's toast! Congrats on having the patience to wait until you're sure that all of it is dead. I always plant too soon into areas like that, then end up fighting the Bermuda for ages. I especially love your limestone wall and am thinking how cool it will look as vegetation frames and softens it. Would purple poppy mallow drape, do you think? Or you could put Virginia creeper below it, on one end, and watch it meander along.....Somehow I've missed the cool metal sculpture in the oval back bed until now. Or is it relatively new? I would love to have something like that for my gardens.Sorry I've been so neglectful of blogging lately. I spend way too much time on Facebook, which is not healthy for my blood pressure or my psyche. Hope you guys are doing well.Cynthia
Thanks for the blog/garden visit. I have Virginia creeper filling in the end of "the forest" where we had to trim back branches that hung over the sidewalk. It's pretty aggressive in there. Not sure it wouldn't just take over the wall. Hoping for something to drape a little out there though.The armillary sphere in the back oval bed has been there a bit, but sometimes the bachelor buttons hide it a lot. It used to be in the garden of a dear friend and when she passed away, her daughters gifted it to us. I'm looking at what I can plant in there for late summer blooms. Right now, the bed is pretty blah other than the cool sculpture.
I happened across your site via a link on another gardening blog, and I'm glad I stopped. I like your approach to upcycling by using the garbage cans for planters. The cans caught my attention, because I have two that are similar. The patterns in your pavers are also great. I did have to laugh at myself, though. When I browsed older posts, my first thought was, "Hey - it's the same pic's over and over, again." Then I realized the photo's showed the progression of the garden. LOL - yep, I can be a little slow at times. Great garden, and thanks for taking the time to share it.
Thanks for visiting. I used to put other posts between the tours more, but time has been short this year. Hopefully, I can focus on some things more again soon. We love to upcycle for the garden. We have wind a lot, so it needs to be heavy and be able to survive temps from below zero to over 100. Metal and rocks are great.
