In need of gardens

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
The snow sits about a foot and a half on our lawn, and the snowbanks along the roads are closer to 5 feet tall right now. Midland is a very very very snowey town and I haven't seen grass since December. I am Aching to get back into my rose garden and put some sweet peas up my trellis ...not to mention all of the fun annuals that I can add to the front garden this year AND I get to see all of the perenials that I planted last year really start to grow .
Does anyone have any beautiful gardens or zen like nature scenes to share with me? I don't know if I'm going to last another month!
Awaiting warm breezes,
Jess

I'm sure Abbysmom can share a few of her lovely garden shots with us to brighten up the place!

Hi,
Here is a picture of my foxgloves last spring. I can't wait for the frost to go away so I can go out to play!

Those Orchids are stunning. You obviously live somewhere warmer than the UK

I do not have many in Photobucket right now:

great pics Karen. You look like you have a park there. Is that your back yard?
post #13 of 23
Yes it is. I doubt it will look like that this year. It was under my care this past year, not the previous owners, who were Botanists.

Well, I'm sure you'll do a great job. Looks like you and Aaron have acres and acres........

Not sure what rose this is!! Please disregard insect damage and black spot!!


Of of my many,many daylilies!!


This is one of the 1st photos w/my digital camera. Unfortunately this is the perennial bed that had the tree cut down this yesterday so everything to the left of the bird bath has to be moved!!

Hope this helped!!

Ok, here come a few shots that are sitting in my photobucket folders...

The resident peony...



More lemon balm than I know what to do with...



The dogwoods up the street...



A Branch of quince...



Blossoms in the park a block away...



The resident forsythia...



And a couple from my MILs garden...





All from last year, still, but I noticed the daffodils are up in the front, and the forsythia and the quince are almost ready for this year's photo session...Spring is my favourite season. Enjoy.

It is, Sooz. It's Cadboro Bay, at the southern tip of Vancouver Island. It's a lovely property, and she has a grand time with her gardens still (at almost 86). That pic is taken near the top of the driveway. The house is hiding behind the rhodos, and on the other side of the house is a rather steep drop down to the water.

I'm so jealous.......how I would love to live by a body of water.......the best I have now is a muddy puddle in the back from all the snow melting!

I have loads of plants in and around my house. Unfortunately, I don't have any pics. Some of these plants include a boston fern, norweigen pine, lavendar, russian sage, day lilies, irisis, mugo bushes, juniper bushes, yuccas, a peace lily, two spider plants, a fig tree, a palm tree (very small), a couple of violets, some mums, a jade plant, a christmas cactus, a bamboo tree, and a hoia (sp, it's some kind of vine like thing), plus a lot more. I can't believe it's all still alive! We used to have some sweet peas (I love the scent), but it was a gift for my great aunt's funeral bouquet. I love plants!
