I've always called it "my mom's garden." But that's not entirely true. Sure, Mom is the designer and takes care of the plants, but we all know that there's more to a garden than flowers and vegetables. There are paths and structures and artwork and borders and trellises and well, you know, all that other stuff that works together to make a garden beautiful.
It's doubtful that the gardens around my parents' home would exist as they are if it weren't for my mom. But it's also a sure thing that they wouldn't exist without my dad either. They are a team when it comes to most things. Dad would be just as happy with a few shrubs and trees, but he knows that my mom's passion is gardening and that she wouldn't be. So, they work together.
Here's some of what they've created:
|Dad constructed the gazebo.|
|"Here we have posies that match ME!"|
|The White Garden|
|Echinacea 'Hot Papaya' was definitely the plant hit of the day!|
|Vertical gardening with Woolly Pockets and trellises|
