We felt fortunate to get a .5 acre lot in suburbia, and have added several flower gardens, a blackberry patch, a small pond, and a vegetable garden.

Thank you for the kind remarks. The garden is about 10-12 years old now. I do take my own photos with a DSLR, tripod & various lenses. I enjoy the photography as much as the gardening.

ABSOLUTELY a stunning garden and landscape. I would also consider you a outstanding photographer. How old are you gardens? Your design captures nature at its finest. Thank you for posting an inspirational garden. Smiles, Lark

Absolutely gorgeous garden and photos. Did you take the photos of the hummingbirds? Outstanding shots. How old is you Sweet Autumn? And do you do any cutting back on it in Spring? It is so beautiful. I really like your gardening style.
