My Garden



I don't have any quilting updates today. Damn work. Keeps getting in the way of my quilting. :-)
So I thought I would show you some pictures of my backyard and garden. I had wanted to take some new pictures today but the weather decided today was not a good day for picture taking. We have been having terrible weather in Oshawa this summer. I am pretty sure it has rained everyday. I think I am somewhat responsible because this is the first time in 20 years I have taken all my holidays during the summer months. I jinxed the province of Ontario...lol.
So these pictures are from last summer. The garden has greatly improved since then. I did all the planting last summer, there were no plants in the gardens when I moved in. The plants were not very big...this year, however, it's like a jungle.



My gazebo. I love my gazebo...it is so calming to sit under there with a good book listening to the birds.












The view from my gate.










The back corner.

close up of the back corner. You can see some hosta's and a forsytha bush.

I will have to make sure I take some more current pictures of my garden so you can see how well my plants did this year. I guess they did well, they are growing in the "new" rainforest. (ha ha ha)

I hope everyone had a great Monday. Only 4 more days to go until the weekend!!! Not that I am counting down, or anything.

Welcome to the blog world. I'm fairly new myself. Your gazebo is adorable and your "bumper crop" of tomato is about what I got this year here in NH. We've had a very rainy past 4 weeks.

Keep blogging!!
