Working the Garden

Or should I say the Garden is working?

Tis the season and I have been out there, digging in the dirt. This year is transition time for the garden. I’ve had to remove roots from a couple of trees that died and 5 shrubs that had gotten too big for their britches. There are many gaps now here and there, but I hesitate to fill the spaces too quickly. I’m kind of enjoying the openness. Of course all of this work has taken me away from other parts of the garden that need my attention. However, some things are moving ahead without me. Thought I’d share a few pictures with you.

What’s blooming in your neck of the woods?

Wishing you all a very lovely weekend.

    Your garden must be really lovely. Such a lot of time and energy you put into it. Loved all,the different flowers that you showed.
    Happy weekend to you also.

  2. Good morning farmer Carol, I can’t imagine doing all that work and know I could not now at my age and back the way it is. I hope you had that nice man you found to help you with some of this and the nice lady that comes to help you with the weeding.

    The images well you know I love them, the Solomon’s Seal and Trillium reminds me of when my Mom and I would take walks out into the woods. Oh how she loved her garden much like you and was digging and carrying those heavy bags of dirt and mulch well into her 80’s before she had to stop.

    You will have to take a look at my blog for the week and my babies that were a treat for me. Have a wonderful weekend with your man.

    Hi Carol-my goodness I haven’t stopped by in such a long time. Those bleeding hearts are just to die for. Frankie and I will be looking for a new place to retire up your way in a few years-you and your garden are ALWAYS in the back of my mind as to how I invision my days….swoon. I love that selfie if you. Happy gardening!! Xo

    How truly lovely – cannot wait to see in person – my life blooms with another kind of garden in the time I have put into my Ezra who now calls out to Nana and rushes to greet me! Like your garden the time, hard work and attention to detail helps the glory of nature come forth and be all that it can be while we take the time to revel in its beauty. – JBV

    Those are some serious gardening duds you have on there! But all the plants and flowers are beautiful … they must know you mean business!

    Sounds like you’ve been busy! Everything looks so lovely!
    We’re enjoying our time right now on the Columbia River Gorge, but when we return I hope to get to work on some more container plants and my bottle tree! Have a happy weekend!

    Gardening is such hard work, isn’t it? But so rewarding…I really enjoyed seeing what you are growing…the plants are beautiful and beautifully photographed. What’s growing here. Well now that I am back up north in Canada, not much! It is a late, late spring. There are a few daffodils out but the trees are not even leafed out yet. But the time will come…
