    Not after seeing yours! LOL! Beautiful!

    the harsh winter killed my grasses and chickens. (Chickens In the container...not clucking ones.) i am disappointed that my pretty grasses did not survive. They had multiplied and were pretty. They were 4 years old. Sigh.

    Beautiful clematis. Sorry it didn't make it thru the winter. I would be heart broken and i am sure you are to.

    beautiful gardens, love the walkway
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Seems a lot of us lost our gardens due to the harsh winter we had. I'm in Iowa and lost most all my knock-out roses, specialty roses, mums, everything I planted last Fall (tulip, daffodil, bulbs) and blackberry bushes. Just transplanting what did survive to fill in the holes that didn't survive. And what the critters didn't eat during the winter to survive, I'm lucky to have anything left. Ate one of my clematis to the ground but she came back up. Planted another one but seems a rabbit liked it more so its gone already. Had to installed fencing around all my raised beds to keep at least the rabbits out though the squirrels are still getting in by climbing over the fencing. Even pulled up my newly planted onions and strawberries. And I feed them toasted bread and bird seed all winter long and summer too. Ungrateful critters.

    I am so happy that my plumeria is still alive and growing. I grew it from a cutting. No flowers yet. But my fig tree has lots of figs and my persimmon tree has three baby persimmons. Yay! I love pretty gardens but I'm not that great at growing things. My mom was the gardener in the family. She always had beautiful flowers.

    Beautiful gardens.

    I will have to see if I can transfer photos from my iPhone to the board in order to show mine. I am in love with all of our flowers.

    I love seeing everyone's gardens. We have two small backyard ponds connected by a stream. These pictures were taken last summer.

    Living in the desert there's not much to show. My husband made me this box and bolted it to a tree stump. I made a fairy garden.

    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.
