Sprawling Summer Beauties

Will these beauties ever come back? Every year I always wonder if my garden will look the same as the previous year. I try to capture as much photos as I can because every passing season brings a new look of appreciation. Here are some photos of my front yard from last summer. I have lost a few during winter and these sprawling petunias could have been saved if my gardener did not chop them off (sigh-what a waste!). I am hoping most of them will spruce back this year...maybe something to look forward to! I

Hi Maryann,

What a beautiful garden. Did you design and plant it? I love the rock placement and all the plant combos. Truly beautiful. Am looking forward to see what this year brings you. I'm always a little scared this time of year b/c it never seems like the garden will produce again!

Oh my gosh that is a GORGEOUS yard!!!! Why is it that some people just have ALL of the talent?! It is just gorgeous.

And yeah, regarding my blog... I exagerate a little. Sometimes I sound like the Donald Trump of the Blogosphere. ehheheheh But it is all in good fun!

But I am not exagerating a bit about your talents! :)

Hugs and Kisses

What fabulous photos! Living up here in the midwest, there's nothing like this yet up here. So of course, it makes me anxious for summer! But girl, these flowers are so beautiful. Can't wait to get over to Home Depot to pick up my potted plants!

I love the natural look of the large rocks incorporated into your lovely landscape. You have a wonderful clump of Lamb's Ear growing there! (I think that's what it is... I have some too, but not that big yet.) Isn't it fun how each year, our gardens change yet remain the same? We greet familiar faces and welcome new ones to our bounty of beauty.
