Mom’s Garden

Just wanted to give an idea of where I get my gardening interest.

My grandmother had pretty much an entire green body, never mind just the thumb.

My Mom has continued that and both my sister and I – despite hating gardening as teenagers – are both involved in gardening now.

The dirt project that we completed was nothing compared to my Mom’s – we had a mere 2 dumptruck loads of dirt, while my Mom had 4 and half.

They did a lot of rock sifting the hard way and my sister turned the grassy boulevard into this rock art representation of a river, using different sized rocks and using some leafy plants.

They recently added this neat fence with chicks n hens in front and columbines in behind with the rose circle just beyond …

the strawberry garden

Making a tiered bed for the strawberries and defining the levels with river rocks makes a stunning and tasty garden addition.

strawberry fields forever!

and then the colours of spring in flowery glory – bleeding hearts, tulips and more!
