There are the wonderful estate gardens that we have all seen, that are maintained by a full staff of gardeners.
and then there is this one….
The garden I am showing you today belongs to Joanne, a member of the photography club that I am a member. Her husband is an avid gardener. He does all the planning, and then does all the gardening himself. It has to be one of the most amazing gardens that I have ever seen in the back yard of a house.
The yard has been divided into sections with a path that takes you around to see all the different displays. I have only shown you a tiny bit. A park bench in a small alcove under the trees makes a shade break, where you can sit and just enjoy the peace and quiet. Bird houses here and there. The work to keep this special place up would be astronomical but the gardener obviously loves what he does.
WELCOME TO MY GARDEN
THE PETALS MAKE ME THINK OF A TWIRLING DANCER
RAINDROPS FROM AN EARLY MORNING RAIN….
NOT YET IN BLOOM – NICE SHAPE
I LIKED THE REFLECTION OF THE FLOWERS IN THE WATER
IT WAS A FUN MORNING FOR ME…. THERE WAS SOMETHING TO PHOTOGRAPH IN EACH NOOK AND CRANNY OF THE GARDEN. PERSONALLY, I CAN’T IMAGINE THE WORK THAT GOES INTO THE MAINTENANCE. ANYWAYS, MANY THANKS TO YOU JOANNE FOR LETTING US COME TO ENJOY AND PHOTOGRAPH YOUR BEAUTIFUL GARDENS.
