I’m so so so lucky — the previous owner to this house (who lived here 22 years!) created an amazing Garden of Eden here on these 1.5 acres. Everywhere you turn, it’s some remarkable blossoming flower or unique plant or tree. I am trying to keep it going but cannot possibly do this b/c it’s nearly a full time job. My mom has been graciously helping me clean the gardens after the winter so we can allow the plants to grow and reach our happy eyes. My husband is cutting the lawn and also helping keep that happy. I appreciate all the long hours she put into these gardens to make them what they are today as even a stroll to my mailbox is DREAMY. I have to walk the 100+ yards down the driveway or thru the “shade garden” she created and it’s so heavenly.
I had fun taking macro shots this afternoon of some of the treats and as I was looking for a great quote, I found this and couldn’t think of anything more appropriate:
“Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.”
Gerard De Nerval
