Playing with natives and the trials and tribulations of my shady garden
Patty how lovely and lush the garden looks and especially the pond.
HI Donna, it was a hot day but with some cloud, good for pictures. The pond area is only a few years old and definitely looking good.
Patty I especially love the tall ornamental grasses and cat tails .. anything near a water feature and I love it.Such a gorgeous place ... no words needed !Joy : )
Hi Joy, that is probably one of my favorite photos. The grasses and cat tails beckoned me to take their picture.
Beautiful, loved the roses draped over the arbour!
Hi Helene, I wish I knew what rose that is. The colour is fantastic isn't it?
Lovely! I enjoyed the tour of your beautiful garden at Astrid's blog. How great that the two of you got to meet and swap visits!
Hi Laurrie, I am glad you saw that! It was pretty cool meeting another blogger. I would like to be able to do more of that.
Other regular readers probably saw immediately that these were taken at the Royal Botanical Gardens near you. But it took me a while to figure that out. Apart from that... no words needed when you have pretty pictures and beautiful bee-friendly roses.
I am at the botanical gardens a lot Denise, especially in the summer. If I knew how to display those last tree photos as a panorama I would have done so.
Hi PattyYou certainly emulate the phrase "A picture is worth a thousand words". Beautiful photos of some lovely areas. My favourites? The Monarda, the roses on the arbour and that gorgeous pond.
Hi Astrid, thanks! The monarda are lovely, kind of a purple pink.
Always nice to see what is in your area worth a trip across the border. Someday, I really have to get there, but until then, your images are lovely.
Thanks Donna, I feel the same especially with your photos from the Buffalo gardenwalk et.al.
Your Rose arbor is stunning, Patty! And the pond is so inviting. Is that at your home garden? You must spend hours there gazing at the beauty and the wildlife and the plants?!
Beautiful photos Patty. I wish I could be there with you.
