How does my Garden grow.

Well as I promised I am posting my garden pictures. I hope all who stop by like what I am trying to do.

This is a photo of my front yard light poll. Now I know what you are thinking where are the flowers, well they are in there really they are. I ordered them from a garden web site and that is how they showed up. I hope they grow, there are day lilies, clematis  a blue one, and I can't remember the rest. shame on meDSCF0025

This is my weeping cherry tree. I just love not sure what to plant around it, any ideas out there, please send them. This is the front of my house.DSCF0026

And this is the side yard to my back yard, my dear sweet aunt Brynn dug this up for me two years ago, I have Shasta daisy's Purple cone flower's Yarrow, and one other she did not tell me what is was, or I forgot, which is probably what happened.

I found this at a shop called Victorian Rose, she has the most pretty things.

This is a large pot out front of my house that I planted with lots of stuff, Gerber daisy's and others. I like to plant different flowers each year.

My yellow rose bush I named April dawn, in honor of our daughter who we lost at the age of 17, she loved yellow rose's. Then I planted Russian Sage. love the smell.

And my first ever veggie garden. It is sooooooo much larger now then when this was taken. I have yellow squash, lots of tomatoes,purple onion, green red and yellow bell peppers. Lettuce, spinach. I can't wait to get some goodies from it.yummy.

 

Well that is just about all for now, when my front yard starts blooming I will post them so you can see that I do have flowers in my planter. I hope you enjoyed my photos, thank you for stopping by. have a blessed day and wonderful week. Until next time

Hi Alaura, I saw you on The Quiet Country House and just came by to meet you.
I was a little taken aback when I read about your daughter, I then had to comment.
If in any way this is painful for you or you'd rather not visit me I will understand that, but I just lost my 30 year old son to suicide exactly 1 month ago today.
I seem to be drawn right now to people that know how it feels to lose a child and anyway, I'm doing well, writing is my threapy and I have a great bunch of supporters right here in blogland that have helped me so much.
I'd be honored if you'd visit me if you'd like.
