Garden 337

A cottage garden in an urban setting

Two Views

I love comparison shots!  Below are two pictures of the secret garden.  One was taken a few days ago.  The other was taken a year ago.  I got home this evening at dusk and walked into the secret garden.  It smells so wonderful.  The vanilla scented purple petunias, the butterfly bush, and the datura all mingle in the warm summer air.  Lovely.

About Me

I haven’t always been a gardener, but I have always loved gardens. It has taken 16 years to get my gardens into the shape they are today. And, I’ve had help. I’m 74 years old, have rheumatoid arthritis, and had a late stage cancer six years ago. I am, though, intrepid. I’m the kind of person who plods along, tailoring my goals as I go. Last November I had a long overdue knee replacement surgery and I’m hoping this spring, summer, and fall will be able to maintain and find even more joy working in all of my garden beds. Full disclosure, though. I have a garden guy who comes once a week to work in my gardens.
