Foxgloves

I love Foxgloves!  My zone 4 garden is not always kind to these plants, they often die off from harsh winter temps, but I keep trying.  Even if I can only grow them as annuals, they add such color and charm to the garden.

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.

This Spot Of Ground

A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust.
The love of gardening is a seed once sown that never dies.
There is no spot of ground, however arid, bare or ugly, that cannot be tamed into such a state as may give an impression of beauty and delight.
The lesson I have thoroughly learnt, and wish to pass on to others, is to know the enduring happiness that the love of a garden gives.
