After what seemed like an eternity (actually ~ a good week and a few days) of no rain, the skies opened up and Mother Nature gave us a good watering for 2 1/2 days. And as I made my way through the gardens this afternoon I was amazed at the changes ...
Our Angel garden is a continuous canvas of changing colour. As we say good bye to some colourful blossoms that have entertained us from the beginning of spring, we wait in anticipation of what magical colours will be displayed for us.
The blue Iris started off almost 3 seasons ago as 2 or 3 little sprigs when first planted. Today it entertains us with numerous blooms and even if only for a short time, they truly are marvelous!!
In the Butterfly garden ... the green foliage is slowly awakening to reveal the beauty of their blossoms, some are certainly ahead, while others continue to tease as with their full buds, that will open to turn the garden into a choir of colour...
Our Memory garden is one of this seasons projects ... Mr. G and I enjoyed choosing each plant - ensuring like our other gardens that a hint of colour is always present among the various shades of green.
Last year the Vegetable garden was a little sparse. This year Mr. G. is lovingly tending to it's needs in hopes of a plentiful bounty during harvest. There is nothing like sitting down to a meal where the veggies came from one's own garden! And to be bale to go outside and pluck fresh herbs is a beautiful thing.
The Peony and Rose gardens are bursting with buds! Which one will win the race?
This year it was the Peony! Our first one of the season.
The Hydrangea garden is looking promising with most of it's plants showing beautiful green foliage!!
