Ahhhh. Can you feel it? Those lazy days of summer are just around the corner. It’s time to kick back and smell the roses- literally. My husband Irwin has been spending what little free time he has on the weekends, getting our gardens ready for the season. We have been astounded to see our plantings change and bloom right before of our eyes. It is truly a sight to behold.
Summer is our favorite time on the road with neighbors always stopping by to say hello. The days are long, allowing us the time to visit each other’s homes for dinner and cocktails and revel in the beauty of nature surrounding us.
And this summer you will be able to join us as we visit some of the gardens on the road and experience nature’s beauty “country style”. Welcome to On the Road: The Summer Garden Tour: Part One.
This past Sunday we stopped our neighbor’s house to drop off a small Rudbeckia plant and I took the opportunity to photograph their gardens. Our neighbor walked us through the many blooming flowers and plantings explaining a bit about them and how they came to be there. The rambling park-like area is filled with amazing trees, flowers and wildlife along with beautiful views. We sat and sipped iced tea while watching the birds and chipmunks at play. It was the perfect way to spend the afternoon.
Now, I'm no floriculturist, so if you see a description that is incorrect, please feel free to correct me.
And there you have it. I hope you had a chance to relax and enjoy the views. Have a wonderful weekend! And...Y'all come back now ya hear!
