Neighbours talking over the garden gate has long been a tradition. They share gardening tips, complain about the weather and pests yet are ever eager to discuss their gardens. That is what I had in mind when creating this blog. So stop by my garden gate to find out the latest happenings in my garden.

Happy Gardening!

Rose of Sharon (Athea) in Bloom

The Rose of Sharon is in bloom a bit earlier this year.  The bush has grown nicely apparently appreciating some of the clean out of surrounding bushes and trees we have done over the last couple of year.  I just love the double blooms on this Rose of Sharon!  Apparently the humming birds do too as one has been seen frequenting the garden.

Happy Gardening!
