Beautiful gardens. The first one is especially magical.

My garden has suffered from a couple of years of not being tended to (hip replacement) that being said, my "cottage garden" survived and although I lost a few things you can still look out the window and see flowers and vines. It is shaping back up this year and I will make some changes to accommodate our Senior years. I will consider more meandering and less digging :)

Whenever you see pictures of gardens, like these, the plants are all in bloom. In my perennial garden it doesn't work that way! Only a couple of plants will be flowering at one time, unless I put all annuals in (Zone 6-ish here).

(just whining)
