goodby garden

This didn't turn out like I wanted it to. I listed the tulip picture twice. But I don't know how to delete it without deleting everything. So please enjoy it twice.
My plan was to show my garden from spring to late summer, but you know about plans"the best laid plans of mice and men" I am not sure where that quote is from but I think it means that plans don't always succeed. Any way these are the first violets of spring and of course the tulips.

The tulips again. they are at the arch that leads to the veggie garden.

This is the Gram Thomas rose it is so beautiful but it doesn't hold up as well as some others in bouquets. But it makes up for it by blooming all summer into fall, in fact it is still blooming.

These are my foxgloves, they grow wild here, I just gathered some seed from one along side the road several years ago and they seed themselves in every year, you never know where they will pop up, these chose a great place by the bird house.

This is an area at the south end of my garden it looks so good in the spring, but in summer it looses some of it's beauty.

I don't know the name of this rose but it is so full of petals it makes the stems droop. It has such a deep pink color it is beautiful in bouquets.

This is a close up of one of my blue berry plants, it produced for over a month. They were very tasty. I am going to move it and its companion, which didn't produce quite as well to the south end of the garden. Well that is a quick tour of my garden thru the spring and summer. It doesn't include the veggie garden which wasn't as good as past years. Too all of you south of the equator enjoy spring and all it promises for the year to come,we are going into fall and it seems like it is coming quickly. TTFN
