Gardening


It is throwback Thursday again already.  I brought back an oldie but a goodie.  This post was my very first post about my garden.   Oh how I wish my garden was that pretty still.  The drought has been so hard on my poor garden.  I am looking forward to when our rainfall is normal again and our wells full of plenty of water...in the mean time I can look back and remember.

I just love to garden and even more than that I love to enjoy a beautiful garden. I thought I would share a tiny bit of my garden with you. I have not quite 4 acres & I am working on landscaping all of it. I work on a bit at a time & then move on to my next project. This is one of my many roses.
This is Pink Mexican Petunia, it can get invasive down in the South, so I plant it in the shade to keep it under control. I also have it in purple as well as both colors in the mini variety.
A pretty shot thru my mimosa tree. Mmmmmm, it smells so good.
This is a view of my garden shed. New siding was added since this picture so it will be a little bit different next time but not too much. I have two rooms inside this shed. My 14 cats call the side with the exterior door their home along with storage for my garden tools & such & in the other room is where my parakeets, finches, & dove stay at night & during the winter. I will show some shots of the aviary at a later date.
Another view of the shed along with the flower bed beside it.
One of my pretty roses.
This is a pretty spot where we love to sit in the evenings & roast marshmallows over our fire pit. I also love to sit & pray or read here in this spot. There are so many birds that fly past & I enjoy their songs.

Oh how pretty. I love mimosa trees. Love the color of your adirondack chairs too. I can't imagine landscaping 4 acres. You are a busy girl.
