    Default Tend My Garden

    Whether it's a flower or vegetable garden, a patio, terrace or backyard, here's the place to show off what you've got!




    Above is a small area between our house and detached garage that we call the secret garden.
    We made it two years ago and add to it every season.



    A fairy watches over the secret garden.

    And I dream I'm on vacation 'Cause I like the way that sounds,
    It's a perfect occupation for me.

    you keep carrying that anger, it'll eat you up inside--

    A very beautiful garden indeed, PM. I love the traditional look your garden has.

    Unfortunately, I no longer have a garden or backyard, as I moved to a flat a year ago... Troub, I feel your pain...


    I've got a peaceful, easy feeling
    And I know Glenn won't let me down

    IF it ever stops raining I will try to get a couple pics of our "sanctuary" as I like to call it. My husband calls it "the fortress". 6 foot privacy fence all the way around the property and several seating areas make it extremely peaceful even tho we are right in town.

    Beautiful garden Cathy---love the fairy bird bath!

    Thanks Willie. Actually I got the fairy at Hobby Lobby (I fell in love with her) and have her perched on the bird bath!

    This past weekend we saw a turtle in our front garden. I'll bet that I'd not seen a turtle since I was a kid!
    We spotted him Friday afternoon. I took this picture on Saturday.
    I was starting to grow fond of him and named him Timothy.
    I saw him a couple of times on Sunday but by yesterday he was gone
