Garden Of Delight

gardenMy little garden is such a delight.  Approximately 20ft x 20ft, a bit of paradise along an urban street.  Sitting outside and viewing the beauty, along with butterflies and bees doing their thing, never fails to relax me.  I feel as though I am being renewed along with the Earth.

I add a little each year, as some things don’t survive the winter or are just weakened.  Other plants, well, they seem to think it is their turn to outdo the rest.  I like their sense of competition.  We have two planters out front, along the sidewalk, and this year I planted a small crop of vegetables.  Squash, tomatoes, green beans, cucumbers, lettuce and onions.  In my little rooftop garden box, the cilantro and basil are adding to the fun.

I hope you enjoy all the pictures.

I love our front garden.  It’s a tiny bit of paradise filled with color and life.  We created this out of a grass-filled space, and it has grown much in a few years.

Phlox, more columbines and everyone needs a fairy garden

I love seeing it all come alive in the spring.  A reminder that nature knows exactly what it needs to do all the time.

I continually add new plantings, just because some of them don’t always like the winter months or may they don’t like where I put them.

It’s okay, that is why it is called garden-ing; a verb rather than a noun.  For me, just creating a beautiful space that I love.
