I thought I’d share pictures of my beloved garden. This picture, of course, is the front of our house. The garden really starts at the left of the house and continues around to the back. I spend a bit of time every day giving all of our plants and bushes plenty of TLC.
Here’s a pic of our deck, can you see Mr. handsome sunning in the background?
We’ve been spending much more time outside these days as the weather has been a bit more tolerable without all that humidity! Fortunately, our plants loved the humidity and are quite happy. In a few short months it’ll be time to say goodbye to our beautiful deck oasis.
Here’s the side of the garden
Here you see the very back of our yard. I’ve continued to feed the birds thoughout the summer. My hubby’s ok with it when I put out seeded sunflower seeds and cracked corn as the seeds from sunflowers make a huge mess. Of course, I’m loving the beautiful hummingbirds. I watch them from my kitchen window. They’re so delightful, they visit me when I’m watering. Soon I’ll have to say goodbye to them as well. Every spring I anxiously await their return.
Of course, what cook can go a summer without potted herbs?? Here I have flat parsley, french tarragon, oregano, and rosemary. My basil has its own pot, it gets huge! I have sage and chives in the side garden. I love simply going out to the pot to snip what I need.
My heirloom roses…just looking at this picture makes me so happy!
The ultimate potted plant, the Purple Passion….the bloom only lasts for one day, absolutely beautiful!
Enjoy what we’ve got left of summer!
