Week 25... "You Are looking at my Garden"

Focus on Life ... Week 25
This is what I spend every nice day working on from March until I give up in September... None of what you see here was here when we bought this house in 2001... We bought a pink bungalo with weedy grass a couple of overgrown cedars and no garden!



Original house 2002... Yard and house 2010
Gallery sign has been improved upon in the last 3 years too!


(PS.  Since I took the pictures a deer has eaten the hosta!)


To see how other people interpreted "you Are...." check out the linkz on Sally's blog!

You are - a gardner with a vision! It looks beautiful! I especially love those braeburry (that's not right, but i think you will know the one I mean) bushes. Dark burgundy leaves that go all speckle pink on the top and latter little yellow flowers. I love mine, amongst chartreuse hosta it's got mad contrast. Looks like a wonderful place to visit

What a beautiful garden. The fruits of your labor are so evident. So sorry about the Hosta, but bet the deer isn't.

Annette said...

It's all so beautiful! I wish I enjoyed gardening.

I love your house, it's so unusual - and your garden is beautiful, you are doing a fantastic job there!

Alice said...

So beautiful. I'm so jealous as my 'garden' is more like a 'spot'. I've always wanted a big garden but just don't have the time to take care of it.

You are definitely one with a green thumb. And a gift for architecture as well! I LOVE your garden and all those flowers/plants - so beautiful.

Lovely garden, Lynne! You've done an amazing job.

Paula, Chief Bead Officer said...

I am totally overwhelmed at your garden and the incredible changes to your home. I have a black thumb but sure do appreciate others' talents and yours is formidable!

CraftyHope said...

So COOL! I wish I had a green thumb, or an inkling of desire to spend so much time digging in the dirt. Alas, all I have is a faint glimmer of wanting to want that without any real pull to do it. I appreciate you sharing it with us though!
