Seasons of my Garden-it's a miricle I am thankful for each day


Winter it is pretty empty in my garden

Spring brings a few little plants looking for the sun....

Early summer and things start hopping and I hope for some color back there....

The 4th of July hits and the color and happiness and whimsy of my garden begins again




I have so many different colored, beautiful roses this year...like a colorwheel in my backyard!

I thought these poppies were really quite different and wonderful.

Here is one of my little garden angels hiding. My Grandkids love looking all over and trying to find them.

Hops climb around my bottle tree-more color whimsy and fun back there

The poppies were blooming by the hundreds and sadly, i took this after most of them got caught in a huge rainstorm.
Now I am waiting for my tomatoes, chard, dill, eggplant, pumpkins, squash, cucumbers and onions to come on strong....
I am on my way to Whidby Island for a week of sewing with friends.
BY THE WAY, IF YOU LIVE IN SPOKANE, I WILL BE GIVING A LECTURE THERE THE 24TH OF JULY-WANT MORE DETAILS? CHECK OUT WASHINGTON STATE QUILTERS/SPOKANE CHAPTER ON GOOGLE.
I HOPE TO SEE MANY OF YOU THERE.

I know you will have a great time this week on Whidbey Island. I wish I was closer and could hear your lecture this month. Your bottle tree covered in hops is beautiful and really made me laugh! I was visiting friends about a month ago, and he had just planted his hops vines. Two of them. One died and the other was about 4 inches tall! I won't tell him about yours! LOL

Beautiful garden Mary Lou, I love all the angels and other interesting things you have peeking behind the plants.

Enjoy your time on Whidbey Island, the Island breezes will be wonderful.

Bottle some up and take it home with you and have some fun in the sun.
