"WOW!!! That is some heavy snow issue your brother faces! Sure glad I don't have to deal with that :-) We have actually had an extremely warm winter here this year! Envious over "Spring Arrival" already! I…"
"Love your garden retreat! My brother made mine with recycled windows and doors. I get so much use out of it. I even bought one of those silly faux electric fireplaces for winter gatherings or garden dreaming. I love the crisp white, dutch door and…"
"It's a real light fixture. Simple galvanized from I believe Lowe's. Yes, a golden chain tree. It has turned into a multi-purpose garden house- starting seeds, reading gardening books, and a hen house (for girlfriend parties)."
WOW!!! That is some heavy snow issue your brother faces! Sure glad I don't have to deal with that :-) We have actually had an extremely warm winter here this year! Envious over "Spring Arrival" already! I LOVE Primroses but unfortunately so do the multitude of rabbits around here :-(
Hi Barb, Love your photos too (wink/smile)! Especially the one "watch out little birds" & "junco" with the birds, moss on the tree trunks, and the glass ball which reminded me of a Chihuly Exhibit! Then there's "Velcro in the bird bath", the "deodara cedar"... Ah heck, they are all beautiful :-D I live in Grosse Ile, Michigan. An island of about 11,000 people which is located at the very end of the Detroit River before dumping into Lake Erie. Our snow is slowly melting and hopefully done with it soon! My dafs near the house were up 4" and then we got dumped with another 8" of snow last week :-(
I'm in NC. The mountains. We have been pounded this year with snow, and cold weather. It usually gets down in the 20's but this year it's been in the teens several days. I'm sure looking forward to warmer weather.
Yes my husband building the pergola all by himself! The tomatoes do stay in the greenhouse and we also plant some in the veg. garden. We started most of them from seed indoors under lights in Feb. This was in 09. Thanks for the great comments!
"Lorraine, I just love your secret garden! I don't have much luck with hanging baskets and would love to try the fertilizer you speak so highly of. Does this local Plant Farm sell their fertilizer online? If not or if you don't know,…"
"You will love them Clare. They like shady places where only wax begonias seem to thrive & bloom. Use large plastic baskets with a drip tray underneath & soil moist in your mix. They will root in water if you break a stem off! I stick the…"
"Thanks Clare for the comments. This is a "secret garden" so not many people get to see it until they have come all the way up the driveway & turned this corner. People delivering packages like Fedex, UPS see it the most. So I love to…"
