Those darn squirrels....
Category: Pianolady's Gardens | Posted: Tue Jul 29, 2008 9:19 pm
Argh. I guess I'd better start feeding the squirrels. Maybe I can lure them away from my corn.
These pics are too big to post, but I'll leave links if anyone wants to see them. They're closer-ups of the back garden. It's in transition from a rose garden to cottage garden & it'll take a while. The winters are too harsh for the roses.

I've always enjoyed lilies, they are always such great performers in the garden (and good subjects for a closeup).

What's wrong with this view?

Rogue tree limbs, both dead and alive! But, always helpful hubby was to the rescue.
Ah, much better. Now I can see the entire garden looking out the window when I'm doing the dishes. It was getting dark by the time we were finished, so I'll try to get a better photo later.

Hidden Gardens...graphic heavy

If you want to see the gardens at my home, you have to work at it. The front yard has a picket fence that hides what's inside, but in the back, I've built "natural" fences using trees, grasses, and shrubs to provide some privacy from the well-traveled road that runs along the back of the property.
Here's the drivers' views from the street. I've left one "window" open for those drivers who go slow enough to see it. Walkers-by stop for a closer look often. :)
Here's my "window" between the two river birch trees.
Of course, once you enter the driveway, everything appears!

Boardwalk Garden July 1, 2008
Category: Pianolady's Gardens | Posted: Tue Jul 01, 2008 2:35 pm
A generous relative gave me some money for my birthday, so I couldn't resist the ad on the sign in front of the nursery..."Roses, buy 2, get one free". So, I spent my birthday money on a Candy Land climber, Cherry Parfait, and Perfect Moment. Two aren't in bloom at the moment, but I know they'll be lovely.
The boardwalk garden continues to fill in nicely. I still have a few blank areas, where seed just sat and rotted in the ground I guess. Will try dividing plants instead.
