a walk through the garden...


Things are so hectic right now, days full of wrapping, packing, sorting and culling.  Plus the hunt is still on for my new home.  I'd found one I just loved and am hopeful it will work out, but am still looking just in case.

I'm trying to stroll through the garden every day at least once, to have a bit of connection with nature, to see what is growing and to say goodbye.  It will take a little time to bid adieu to my little cottage and gardens.  But I'm looking forward to my next adventure.

 The honeysuckle is blooming madly and smells so divine in the evenings...

 Mulberries are ripening and the birds are crazy for them...

 The peonies are just starting to open...bliss...




The squash is blooming, the cucumbers and beans are growing, and the tomatoes getting bigger... I hope that perhaps I'll have a chance to harvest a few cucumbers and beans, maybe a squash or two before moving day.  Hopefully the new owner will like the veggies I planted.



The foxglove...oh, the foxglove!  I love these flowers so so much and it thrills me so to see them in bloom.  I'd actually forgotten they were there and when they started to come up was thrilled!  

I plan to take several flowers with me, the foxgloves and peony for certain, as well as the lily of the valley, hellebore, the dahlias (if I can find them in the jungle!) and hopefully at least 1 of my hydrangeas (they were all three gifts from my step-mother so I'd like to have at least one of them with me).  I also hope to try to take my joe pye weed or at least harvest some of it before I go.  We will see when the time comes I guess. 

I'm off to pack a little bit more.  The head has been quite unbearable the past several days and I lost Tuesday to resting.  So much to do, I'd best push on.

See you soon!

If Laura is right, happy birthday! Your garden photos are so lovely, and I'm impressed that you actually know the names of plants---I'm a "tall red flower" or "little blue stars" kind of person

That is such a beautiful garden. The peonies especially are the most beautiful shade of pink.
