My Sister's garden!

High 80 F
Low 56 F

I am blessed with four sisters and one brother.  Two of my sisters love to garden the other two just endure it but they do have many other gifts.  My sister, Eileen,  loves her garden.  I thought I would take this time to show you a bit of hers. Dsc_0041 She lives only two and a half miles away from me so we get to share garden thoughts, plants and successes, as well as a few failures.  I think she is becoming more addicted as she spoke of another garden plan. She works full time with occasional travel obligations but she manages to keep her garden looking quite wonderful. Dsc_0042 One of the features of her garden is a beautiful fieldstone retaining wall, shown in the first picture, which her 'equipment manager' built.  It provides the structure and support for her perennial garden.  She has a variety of light situations from full sun through deep shade.Dsc_0043   She also spent  quite a bit of time this weekend 'fine' gardening as you can see by the mulch and the edging. Dsc_0045 Here are the pictures of her achievements! She has a hugh Hosta 'Sum and Substance' shown here.  So far, no slugs! Dsc_0046 It is a wonderful garden to visit and enjoy and one more interest shared!Dsc_0048
