A Little Garden Tour

It’s May 1, and a lovely day here.  Welcome to my little garden tour!  Come on through the arch at the top of this blog.

One thing I enjoy is walking in my garden.  It has become my favorite place just to walk. In the winter months I like to hike around the meadows and woods; that’s when the snakes, ticks and chiggers are into their winter sleep.  We live on a dirt road and I often like to take a nice long walk with our four big dogs on these roads, but if we’ve not had recent rain you can get pretty dusty when a vehicle passes by, therefore, walking the perimeter of my garden is a good solution to my love of walking.  Come along for a little walk with me…………..

Here are some photos to enjoy along the way.  The garden is completely fenced in because I have three little dogs who get to run free within the 80′ x 130′ enclosure; it’s a safe place while mama is tending the garden.

008Here’s a view to the west.  Apple trees on the left and a solar-power clothes dryer!  See it?  😊  What’s not to enjoy about hanging clothes out to dry in the fresh air and sunshine?

One long bed dug up and ready for planting.  005 Apple trees on the left as well as some blueberry bushes.

View to the north.  Garlic beds on the right and brick-lined lavender bed.   Rosa rugosa bush starting to bloom.  Red creeper will be climbing up the lattice by the bird house later.

003View to the south.  Potatoes growing nicely in the foreground.  Grape vines starting to green up in the background.  Two elderberry bushes are behind the grapes but hard to see in photo.  Blueberry bushes barely visible to left of grapes.

002The southwest corner of the garden is where we have a black metal table and chairs under the lovely Southern oak tree.  On warm Sunday afternoons my daughter and I play Scrabble (Garden Scrabble!) here and drink a cup of coffee.  Birdbath is nearby as well as royal purple raspberry and current bushes.

Hope you enjoyed your tour!

    1. Thank you, Laura, for your comment. My garden does seem like a little piece of heaven. It’s like going into another world sometimes. Almost enchanted when I watch plants growing, seeds miraculously becoming plants with fruits and veggies. And flowers, amazing creations too. I love digging in the dirt and planting things, tending my little “Garden of Eden” so to speak. Or trying to anyway! 😊
