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!

Thoughts On My Gardens Here

We moved here in late June of 2007 coming from a beautiful, formal garden with a greenhouse.  I had built that garden from nothing so it was a real accomplishment.  This house from the start was a huge challenge to say the least.  We spent the first summer hauling out over six truck loads of overgrown brush.  We raised the canopies on the maples so we could actually see the beautiful view of the water we were paying for.  It was rip out, after rip out, after rip out.  After awhile it became so depressing.  As we started to rebuild there was a bit of hope but we haven't been here long enough get the garden beds re-established as we wanted.  And now we wait, anxious to move on but still we wait as the house sits on the market.

Happy Gardening!
