Love in my garden

I stood on my deck this morning looking out into the garden and marvelled at all that has been achieved this past year and had 100 ideas of what I still want to do. I always thought that there was an end to what you do in a garden, once you have ‘landscaped it’. This, I have now learnt, is not so. There is continuous change, always new growth and even more new things to try. I have come to understand the way I work in my garden. It comes from love and it comes from trying something new. It starts with an idea. I have the freedom to do as I please – thanks to my non-gardening hubby who is always there to help – when I ask! I build and dig and play and through all this a wonderful place emerges.

My gardening friends always on the ready. Sometimes too enthusiastic but always by my side when I am playing in the garden.

Everything is starting to bloom – all brand new. Here are my two favourite plants – my roses and my fig tree. You can feel the love! Here are some more new growths.

I love spring xx

Happy gardening

By Barbara

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

I adore your Lavender. You have some lovely new blooms in the garden. Oh, I want to start over with Spring again. LOL!

I love watching the temperate country springs, when everything symbolizes hope, sprouts and growths. Will that corn flower still emerge fully, i want to see the full bloom. I wonder why it is called corn flower.

Well said!! Hope grows! I will be posting my corn flowers on the next GBBD post! Quite special! I’ve always wanted them in my garden. Will have to google why it is called a corn flower πŸ™‚

I can never get enough of photos of chickens. They make great images and they have so much expression. And yours are pets, which makes it so much more interesting.

They are so comical, aren’t they? I love my girls, no matter how cheeky they get sometimes! By the way, I love your hoppers and mantis! πŸ™‚

So you’ve learned – there seems to never be an end! Which is a good thing for us addicted to gardening. πŸ™‚ Loved seeing all the new buds and leaves on your plants. Such promise of things to come. Happy Spring!

Hi Barbara, isn’t spring exciting? All the northern hemisphere bloggers are writing about autumn, which I also love, but it’s nice to share the beginning of the growing season with some other southern hemisphere gardeners, too. Your top two photos look interesting. I’d love to see more of your place.

Hi Lyn – thank you and I wish you a calm and peaceful autumn. I am going to have such fun this spring with all my new plants! Will keep you posted. It will be a pleasure to share my place with you πŸ™‚ I’ll do a few DIY posts on what my hubby and I have done to make this house a home.

Your love for your garden shows. You are right, gardening is a process that it is never completed. The creative stimulus is always there: always a new plant, a new project, a new hope, a new season. As we turn into autumn, I wish you a very Happy Spring!

Thank you my friend xx without you I would just have a back yard!! Through our Gardening Blog we BOTH have achieved so so much AND through LOVE! Even made loads of new gardening friends πŸ™‚ What a bonus!!
