Guest Garden #2


Greenhousing

I stayed with my friend AJ last night and took a few pictures of her garden this sunny Thursday morning. It is an L-shaped established garden with a large lawned area and bordered by a sweeping hedge. When she moved in it had a decrepit pond far beyond repair so it was filled in and made into a paved patio area with bistro style table and chairs. The maintenance of the whole garden is a bit much when you have little free time so she has made up some beautiful containers with herbs, lavender, perennials and bedding plants for the summer. The birds are happy with their two water baths and bird table. I don’t have any roses but she has a number of well established shrubs inherited by the previous owners and they are looking good today. A great garden for one with so little time to garden!
