It's the most wonderful time of the year.
These days we’re all paying more attention to beneficial wildlife in our gardens, and to that end, looking for good native plants to grow....
Ever heard of a “mast year?” I hadn’t until we moved to our cottage on the Eastern Shore. That was June. In early September,...
My latest gardening obsession is making over the landscape in front of my housing co-op offices, where the top priority is to do something...
Your porch with chairs and even an old swing looks SO inviting!
Susan, Saratoga Springs has a big porch culture. People put reading lamps on their porches, have drinks out there. It’s a really nice thing.
Looks happy to me!
My 1916 house came with a porch. I love it. The neighbors walk by with their dogs or their children, say hello, comment on the garden. It’s so old fashioned and neighborly. Doesn’t a reading lamp attract bugs?
I’ve been seeing that yellow euphorbia lately. Do you know it’s name. I need to find a place for some.
Your house could not be more charming!
It’s SO nice to see a circus sans elephants and tigers 🙂
Wonderful! And they are performing just for you!
Deidre, it’s just euphorbia polychroma, or cushion spurge. I love euphorbias, but most of them are not hardy where I live.
I’ll jump in to tell you the yellow euphorbia is Euphorbia polychroma or cushion spurge.
And I agree; what a gorgeous porch, house and neighbourhood.
I am noticeably more cheerful than I was before I saw these pictures. Thank you!
Such a nice surroundings, very beautiful garden, the house looks historic but still beautiful.
love it! my favorite time of year is right when all the colors become overgrown 🙂
I like how you describe your yard.. “circle” is a good word to use 🙂
I always feel that front yard decoration is an ART as your visitors will normally walk away with their first impression when visiting you. How you display your flowers, benches all need to be in line with your outdoor charm.
I guess a cast iron glider will always be in style, or perhaps a wooden swing right next to your front door entrance.
