Summer Days

The days have been hot and steamy around the garden.  The Swallowtail Butterfly have been fluttering around all the flowers that have finally popped in the garden.

The prettiest thing in my garden…today.

When the world wearies and society fails to satisfy, there is always the garden.

The Garden Anchors

The lesson I have throughly learnt,

and wish to pass on to others,

is to know the enduring happiness

that the love of a garden gives.

Two days of sunshine and warm temperatures helped me make progress on the painting and staining of the greenhouse and Rabbit Run Cottage-potting shed.

So much more to do and finish, but waiting for spring to return.  It’s hard to paint in a winter coat and gloves!

I’m happy with the changes and can’t wait for the plants and flowers to fill in the canvas.

 

 

Mother Nature, let’s get this party started!

April brings warmer weather and lots of garden chores to get things rolling around here!

Off to search for a right and left garden glove!

On My Mind

Basil has been on my mind!

Pretty, peppery plants are my most favorite herb.

Winter Has Landed

The garden is covered in the first snowfall,

and we shall rest.

The Blog is also going to take a break for the remainder of the year,

but I will be back in January with a fresh look for my readers.

Happy Holidays to all of my garden friends!
