Our town got hit by Irene and it knocked us for a loop. The whole city is shocked, water logged and saddened at the loss of a Historic home built by Guy Johnson. Guy Park State Historic Site, is a house built in 1773 for Guy Johnson In 1774, The original house was struck by lightning and burnt to the ground. Johnson left the house never to return in 1775 because of the American Revalutionary War. After many years as a tavern, the house has become a historical museum, with exhibits…Continue
I awoke to an unknown sensation. Was it me? My heart beating 'funny' again? No. It is the bed, it is shaking ever so slightly. It must be my dog, panting hard or scratching herself with gusto, lying near my feet. I sat up slightly to see if she was alright. No dog. More shaking. The empty shoe tree carousel was turning and rocking. The house is built on concrete slab. By now I was sitting upright trying to understand what was happening. Now my heart IS pounding. I sat on the edge of my bed…Continue

Texas Sage and Bee
As I drove to work Tuesday morning this week, I noticed the Texas Sage shrubs in my neighborhood were ablaze with purple blooms. At first, I thought only a few were blooming along the right-of-way, but as I meandered deeper into my neighborhood toward the highway, I found just about every sage bush I came upon was abloom. When I arrived…

After looking breifly over some of the new posts I realized how gardens are healing many people on this site, Just by working in them, sitting and looking, smelling, The morning walk thru, the changing seasons. The garden helps people work thru things, it listens to you, it pushes you to make its life better and returns the favor by putting life in your hands. Even the people that cant get out of the house enjoy…Continue

WHEN I CAME ACROSS GARDEN SHARE, I WAS GOING THRU SOME PERSONAL PROBLEMS. THE PROBLEM SEEMS SO DISTANT NOW. WHERE IS MY MIND NOW... ON FLOWERS. I HAVE NEGLECTED MY YARD FOR OVER 10 YRS DUE TO SICKNESS. I FEEL AS IF I HAD A DIVINE INTERVENTION AFTER LOGGING IN TO GARDEN-SHARE.
WHEN LOGGING IN TO GARDEN-SHARE ABOUT 4 MONTHS AGO, I GOT SO EXCITED LOOKING AT ALL THE BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS AND LANDSCAPE PICS. I SPEND ALL NIGHT LOOKING, DIDN'T GET MUCH SLEEP. I WAS TELLING MY FRIENDS…Continue
Just wanted to document my latest backyard project. He's an easter Island Moai Tiki fountain that I've been working on the last few months. Hope you enjoy.
Painted flower pots
front porch swings
the Robin sings
iced tea and scones
fresh mowed yards
long walks home
Scents of flowers
lights hung in trees
a couple's dance
Hard work all Spring
dirty nails, calloused knees
worth every moment

Definitely not a stellar time in my garden. First of all, it’s so $#@&! hot, and I have little interest in being outside for more than 10 minutes unless I’m poolside. So the garden gets a little – well okay, a LOT – neglected.
August is also one of those “in between” months in the garden – most of my summer bloomers are done for the season (or on their way out), and the fall perennials have yet to hit their stride. And what does remain looks…Continue
