What looks like this in summer:
looks like this in winter:
Just in time for National Pollinator Week, my Garden Writers region planned a fabulous outing for members – to see the Penn State Trial Gardens near...
I’ve posted before on this blog about the attraction of wildlife tracking in the garden. Garden wildlife, I noted then, reminds me of teenagers...
Gardening get-togethers like the Garden Blogger Fling and Garden Writer events are the best possible ways to see great private gardens, and the Fling attendees...
Nice…. But I’m ready to move from the bottom picture back to the top picture!
15 below here this morning (and that’s nothing compared to temps further north! Those folks in Minnesota HAVE to be tough!:)
Amy, you saved me a lot of time. Now I don’t have to post my bloom day photos, because our gardens in the winter were separated at birth.
I just came off a loooong, long stretch of hospice night shifts and I get to rest instead of wrestling with the camera.
Gonna sleep now, and not take photos.
p.s. Here’s a new reality show concept: Bloom Day American Idol. Simon, my garden really IS beautiful in the spring, at which time it can also sing (in bloom, not in tune) Na nananah na-nah na-nah, can’t pluck this.
That’s it. I’m ridiculus. Time to really sleep before I start scaring my friends.
Amy — now you know one of the benefits of snow: it hides a lot of sins while you’re off working on other projects!
I’m just breathing in the summer photos. Your garden was beautiful. Will be again.
Was looking for a photo on my computer for an article and saw my garden last summer. I thought, did it really look that good? Hard to believe when winter is upon us. BTW, I linked to your video the other day on RDR.~~Dee
I like your garden better in the summer time. Like Linda noted, snow would hide all that. Don’t you wish for snow now?
For all the pretty blooming close ups I took for today’s bloom day, there were plenty of broken, dried out, weedy patches I careful kept out of my shots. Thanks for injecting some reality into into wintery bloom day!
At least some of it is green, Amy.
O, shoot! I was gone all day, got home just before dark, and forgot all about Bloom Day. Is it OK if I take pictures tomorrow? (such as they will be! Not much out there in this horrid cold).
Don’t need Bloomsbury pictures need pictures that lift you up and get you thinking about spring and new gardens.
Your winter looks like my early spring. At least, where I forgot to plant spring bulbs.
I love that chicken house!! It’s adorable. And I love your garden even now, just go out and look at the ‘bones’ in that place. It’s just the best time to really see what’s going to happen come spring-time. Is that yarrow creeping over too far into the path-move it now!
I’m posting my Bloom Day images tonight…check it out. http://www.bdgc.typepad.com
The winter plants look a lot better than the ramshackle fence and garden seats. Don’t blame the season.
For me Bloom day is always pretty thats why it called Bloom Day.
Hey, you did a good job in maintaining your garden more beautiful. such a nice flowers.it seems they all blooms very faster. i wish i could do that in my garden as well, thanks for sharing.
