My Garden "just yesterday" and saying " goodbye" to my arbour, trumpet vine- a recipe site you will love!

So it came time this year to hook up to the sewer. And in doing so I had to get rid of my lovely arbour (15 years old) and the trumpet vine that grew so happliy over it. I also had to get rid of a weeping cherry tree and a huge hydrangew-how did I know they were being planted right over the place they needed to hook up? So today it looks bare there and I am planning a new arbour with clematis and trumpet vines. And a new weeping tree of some kind. That's the thing about gardens, they go through the stages of life just like we do and so you need to enjoy each stage as it comes. :0) There are alot of life's lessons out there.
I know that it is Fall and everything is pumpkins but I have these photos and I am going to delete them so my computer doesn't crash and I wanted to share. The photos below are of Manito Park here in Spokane and the photos above are of my garden. I love gardening and flowers and dirt and the smells and sites of anything growing. A seed into a miricle.
Hey, if you love garden recipes, this blog has a great pepper recipe for sweet peppers for crackers or on sausages or a million other things. I highly recommend this site-thank you Carol Baker for sharing it with me!

Hi Mary Lou:
What beautiful gardens! I wished the weather in TX. were not as hot to be able to grow more plants. Thank you for visiting my blog! I met you briefly in Austin and I wished I had taken your class but I had a commitment on that day. I love your work! Keep on quilting and blogging!

Wow ~ your garden looks like the perfect place to sit and enjoy the beauty of nature. Building and planting around your new arbour will be fun and very rewarding.

If you hadn't mentioned that other place was a public garden there, we would have thought you had a really big back yard. ;-)

Great photos of your garden and the public one. Could they not save your tree to replant later?

What a shame, but change is good.

Thanks for sharing. said...

Mary Lou, your garden is so gorgeous! You live such a busy life, how do you ever find time to grow a garden so lovely as yours? I have the touch of death when it comes to trying to grow anything, so I don't even try. But I envy anyone who can and you certainly do a great job of it!

Enjoyed seeing your beautiful garden. It is sad about your arbor having to go, but as you said gardens change through the years. Regards, Nessie
