Finished Our Gardens


Over the long weekend Papa, Miggy and I went to the garden centre to get our flowers . We did most of the planting on Sunday and finished the rest yesterday . I took photos this morning .


                 Last year I planted flowers in the dirt around the tree and the tree took the nutrients from the flowers so they didn't  do very well , this year I put them in a few pots instead !


              Our centre garden that Papa and I built when we moved here three years ago . There were no flower gardens here other then the front .


              I cant wait for all the flowers to thicken up and bloom more !


              This is were I spend my summer days enjoying nature , our back patio !



      One day soon Papa and I will be putting a floor of some sort under our Gazebo and a water feature in the back !


             Our back garden that has a bit of everything !



                       Center garden from another angle !


             Papa’s planters , he likes the tall flowing grass plants in the middle of them with flowers around the edge ! I think they look good.


Our corner garden Papa made in the early spring .  We try to use what we have like logs and what not to make the edgings .This is the Forsythia bush his mom gave me from her back yard .


Papa’s work shop garden ! He picks out the plants and flowers he wants and plants them !


                                                  Our crazy driveway garden !


I still have two more planters to go in the front here . Papa is working on painting them a bright yellow for me ! Then all will be complete .



Well , that's all of our gardens around the Cove . Now just to sit back and watch them grow and enjoy. I will take photos later in the season when all the flowers have plumped up and are in full bloom !

                                      Until next time hope you all have a great day !

You have a lovely home and a beautiful garden, with a lot of great projects to do too. I love the look of your porch out back and wish we had a covered one but we have a big old tree that gives us lots of shade and that will have to do.

Thanks for visiting. Funny story about the soundtrack that you noticed on my chipmunk and squirrel video. Yes as you guessed correctly it was MI-5. I have never watched it before and am slowly making my way through the whole ten series. Well, when I was watching it when videoing the first time around, I didn't realize I had the sound on as focused as I was on all the activity outside. When I looked at it later and realized I had had the TV on, I was not going to put it on the blog. However, I took so many videos but by this time had turned the sound down on the computer and so, not realizing I had downloaded that MI-5 soundtrack until after you mentioned it, I had a good laugh when I went back and turned the sound back up, and realized I had downloaded it anyway. So, thanks for the chuckle. Isn't that a great show? Just wish so many of my favorite characters didn't get 'written' out all the time, and that's putting it nicely ;) I've just finished Season 7.

Looks like you've been busy! And I suppose Miggy watched it all from her spot on the swing!! I finally planted my porch pots today, happy to have the job done, now sit back and enjoy!!

Wow, your flowers look great!! I can't only plant flowers in the front yard because our dog will destroy whatever I put in the back yard. I like the hanging plants idea under the patio.
