Our male ruby-throated hummingbird just resting.

  1. I love gardens and flowers. Your pics are amazing. I am new to blogging and look forward to keeping up with yours. Come by and say hi!

    I like your latest pics blog.
    Enjoyed the ruby throated hummingbird. We look for them every year.
    Will you show pictures for all the seasons?

  3. You take very nice pics of your garden.

    I have a shady area by some trees that I'd like to get looking more like your "One bed I can't get right" photo. I don't know much about plants so I was hoping you could help me.

    I have a hosta and what looks like the same plant as you have to the left of the hosta in the center. Forget what it is. I'd like to plant so low growing flowers like you have on the right to add some color and fill it in. Would you mind telling me what you have growing on the lower right of the photo please?

  4. Oh, I see now you have a different blog that has some more information on your plantings.

    Can I make a suggestion? I see that you have different blogs for different categories. That seems like it is difficult to manage, and might make people like me find it hard to find some of the information you have on here.

    There is a way using blogger to create labels and you can filter by labels. That would be a better way to do what you're trying to do in my opinion. That way all your posts are in one blog but are easily filtered. There's even a widget that you can use for the labels or you can customize it to make it look more like what you have now.

    Since I'm hoping to get one part of my yard to look like a section of yours that you indicated you don't know what to do with, you might think I'm crazy. :) I may not know much about plants, but I know a bit about the web :)

    You have a very beautiful garden and take nice pictures of it, you should make it easier for people to see that. Just a thought.

  5. Just happened on your comment.
    I don't think on looking back to past post for comments.So I apologize.
    I believe your right about "labels",so I'll give it a go.
    The bed I can't get right has annuals to the right of the hosta.
    I'll label that picture later.
    Regarding husband is the expert and will have him answer you.

    Thanks so much.
