It's a tie...

When someone asks me what my favorite time of the year is, I have to admit that it is a tie between Spring and Fall.  Spring brings renewed life and the bright greens of new growth.  Bright, happy flowers opening up to get their fill of sunshine.  The whole season always brings to mind passages from one of my favorite books from my childhood...The Secret Garden.  References to checking to see if the plantings are "wick" always pop into my head when wandering around the yard this time of year.

Fall is a close tie for favorite with the gorgeous changing colors and crispness to the air.  If you look closely, it seems as if the sunlight actually changes color as well.  The downside to both seasons is the horrific allergies that plague me.  Odd that two seasons that cause me such discomfort, also offer such pleasure.

Looking around my very well hydrated yard (April showers to May flowers and all that), it appears that all my plantings are verrrry "wick"...and beautiful.




Enjoy your day!

  2. I love your garden ... especially the rock wall around the tree! Is that a clematis in the first photo? The purple flowers on the vine?

    1. Thank you! Yes, it is clematis...2 different ones. That trellis has really taken off this year. There are also some by the fence and also by the front door...all different colors.
