Garden Party---Part 1
Last Saturday Mr. Ken and I went
on one of our favorite garden tours.
It is held every other spring.
At the first garden we were greeted
by the big man above.
To me, this garden was mostly
about the landscaping and updating
that the homeowners have accomplished
over the three years they have lived
in the house.
When they bought the home, the
backyard was mostly grass and
a lot of overgrown Ivy and yews
by the pool. If you look closely
at the pic above you will see a
stand-there were several scattered
around the yard. the stands held
"before pics" of what the area looked
like they started making changes.
In and around the backyard there
were several art type pieces. The
homeowners added these to
"enhance the beauty of the plants."
Some pretties. The pool area was
edged with a variety of plants some
that bloom and some that stay green.
They were two of the raised
garden beds. Each side mirrored
the other. There were herbs, flowers
and vegetables growing each bed.
Looking at the pic, you can see
gravel paths in the beds and between
I will tell you right now. that I was so
envious of these. I need these at our
house. When I mentioned this to Mr.
Ken he said "Better get busy building"
said with a big grin on his face. I told him
" no, you build them for me" said with a
big grin on my face.
Next Wednesday we will be off to garden
2. Stay tuned.
Sorry I am behind with this post but I was
unable to do a post last night. We had field
day, the all school picnic AND a farewell
reception after school, needless to say I
was WORN OUT!
Tomorrow is a half day and then we are
DONE for the summer!
~Keep on Dreaming~
