    Your yard is beautiful. We have gophers and I haven't gardened in 2 years. I got tired of having to replace my plants (feed the gophers). I have not found a solution to the problem, so I will look at your yard when I need a garden fix.

    Absolutely gorgeous. Too much heat and no rain does not make a good garden. Water from the sprinkler just doesn't cut it. Maybe we'll have pretty fall flowers!

    When we moved here,there were lots of chipmunks and we got two little Jack Russel terriers. They are the answer! Just now,my husband shot a coon out of a tree and they enjoyed taking over. They are never aggressive to children, just love to hunt critters!

    I love peonies so much and can't get them to stay around, so I 'saved' the picture of yours to put as my computer backdrop.

    Your hostas are huge! I think our weather may be too hot here. Your raised beds are so neat....and weedless!!! How do you find time to make quilts and garden? Great job on the garden. thanks for sharing. :thumbup:

    We don't have the amount of heat and humidity that you have and also I have lots of shaded areas to work in where hostas thrive.The size of a hosta depends on the variety. The secret to weed-free beds is mulch! If you can find cheap mulch,you are done weeding once it is down. And that allows me time to quilt!

    Beautiful Gardens....my wife and I have been trying to get our planting done for the year but the heat and lack of rain has halted it ...expecting rain tonight and tomorrow so maybe we can finish up this week

    Your gardens are absolutely gorgeous. Gets too hot and dry around here to grow anything decent, watering with a hose just doesn't do the job. I only have flowering bushes, roses, and perrenials, return every year.
