Since we’re stuck at home, it seems like the perfect time to share some photos of the garden. It also forces me to go outside and appreciate the garden instead of only seeing the flaws. But don’t worry, I’ll share some of the flaws too.
I originally started this on my personal Facebook feed, but I’m going to migrate my posts here. You’ll see several show up at a time for a while until I catch up, at which point there will usually only be one per day.
I look forward to sharing the garden with all of you!
When the Sherwood Orchid azalea is blooming, I know spring has really arrived.
This was a Walmart purchase back in 1996. I bought three of these in gallon pots for $2.97 each, and for the most part they’ve done very well (one had some damage from a falling oak limb, but that’s hardly its fault).
This particular plant is my favorite of the three; it’s prominently placed in the backyard just left of the walkway, visible from every north-facing window in the house. It’s about six feet high and eight feet wide, and every spring it’s reliably covered in lavender-pink blooms.
