Garden Inspiration

I absolutely loved this house with it’s wrap around porch that I spied while on vacation in Maine this past summer.

The simplicity of multiple pots of Eucalyptus lined up on the edge of the porch stopped me in my tracks.

The plants gently swayed in the breeze that was bringing in salty air from the water.

An inspiration for my own garden this summer.

Where do you find garden inspiration?

Great Balls Of Fire

Now this is my kind of Autumn weather!

I was able to spend an entire day out in the garden, trying to clean up spent perennials and even got a few bulbs planted.  Sunshine has been very scarce and I had felt my mood began to darken along with the weather.  The Burning Bush is like a big cup of coffee for my soul!

The weather has been colder and wetter then normal!

Sunshine has been very scarce and I’m behind in the garden chores.

Mother Nature, I need a little cooperation.

 

Snug As A Bug

I had the pleasure of visiting the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Boothbay Maine a few weeks ago.  An amazing botanical garden that was packed with beauty in every square inch.

Among my many favorites was the Digitalis ferruginea that was clearly among the Bee’s favorites too!

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.

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