When it's freezing cold outside and the snow is blowing and I know there is still 4 long months until I can really "garden" again, I start looking through pictures of last years garden. It's really fun to compare them with the pictures of our garden the year before, to see how things have progressed. The grape vines had made it to the top of the arbor the previous year, and this past summer they had began to fill in the top. This coming summer I'm hoping the arbor will be shaded, at least for part of the summer.

It's also fun to compare the early spring pictures with the late summer pictures. The transformation is amazing.

My "above all the other" pictures I love to look at are the ones of my roses. It is so wonderful to live in a climate that roses thrive in (hot and dry on summer days with cool nights). I've used all different kinds of roses around the garden. The tall, shrub roses will help to divide the "garden rooms" and the climbing roses will cover the arbor at the south gate of the picket fence and also grow along the fence along the driveway. The miniature roses are being used as a sort of ground cover out on the corner, outside the picket fence, and the hybrid teas are mixed and mingled among all the flower beds throughout the garden, back yard and front.

"LOL my fish do this when its spawning time, the first full moon in summer. I hear loud splashing, and think one of the dogs has fallen. The fish push one and other out of the water to try to get to the fish laying eggs, they are very rough with one…"
