    My garden is just coming into bloom. Seems late this year, but it gives me such pleasure.

    You have a lovely display of spring plants Cayuga. I like the layout of your garden - so much tidier than mine. :oops: That big blue pot stands out nicely doesn't it?

    I look forward to more photographs as summer comes around.

    Great shots! Your garden seems to be slightly ahead of mine, my Lilac's aren't quite open yet.

    You have an interesting collection of garden areas. It all seems to work well. You must be quite pleased with this spring showing.

    Hi all,
    Thanks for your comments.

    Cherylad--I will post a photo of the bird bath area in a month or so. I get a kick out of watching the changes in the garden.
    Eileen-- the last thing I think my garden is is tidy!!! The camera must be v-e-r-y forgiving. It looks different up close.
    Netty & Jewell--Thanks!
    Barb--I too am enjoying this spring! And I am looking forward to another photographic 'tour' of your garden.

    I was just wondering today how my garden would look from the roof. But I'm scared of being up high without something to hold onto (not scared of heights... scared of hitting the ground). Maybe one day I'll brave a tall ladder.
    Those are fantastic views with a whole new perspective. Okay... I think I can... I think I can...

    Great pictures, especially the bird's eye view. How do you get gravity to work sideways? :)

    Cheryl---I am smiling! It did cross my mind that the ground is pretty far away. It also crossed my mind that my husband conveniently didn't know I was up there. He would have had an opinion about it.
    I got the idea from one of Philip's videos. I have forgotten which one, but it advised taking photos of your garden from your roof, the better to check out the design aspects.

    Jerry--Just (sideways) talent!
