First thing I see in the morning - from the patio doors to my bedroom:

Delphiniums and Foxgloves competing to become tallest.

What neighbours and people taking walks see out front - many exclaim - about my R. Arvensis Ayrshire Splendens - "it's a rose - not a tree!)

Down one of my garden paths

posted by: aftermidnight on 07.07.2010 at 03:30 pm in Cottage Garden Forum

Many of you have seen these old pictures before but for those of you who haven't here's where I hang out most of the time. I'm not the greatest with a camera but since I now have a new camera things seem to be improving a little.

This first pic is in my little gar*den room against the back fence.

Exiting the garden room around the back of the shed going down the path to the lath house.

Another view of same path looking up instead of down a month earlier.

The lathhouse covered in C. Montana wilsonii, if I want to grow my fuchsias there again we have to peel the clematis off the roof.

The side of the steps (the tree stump bed) leading up to the lathhouse.

The view from the kitchen window, the steps going up to the lath house or through the arch with paths leading to the pergola and along the side my greenhouse to the back 40 (forty feet from the back door)

Looking from the bottom step looking toward the gate where you enter my Garden which I have named "Dancin' with weeds".

This last picture is of a little bench where I enjoy a cup of tea thursday afternoons, more than likely my tea is in a mug, I can be such fumble fingers at times my good china seldom makes it out here. This area is all being dug up and redone, it's taking me a loooong time but eventually I'll get there.

I hope you've enjoyed this walk of "Dancin with the weeds" with me :).

A Little Bit of California - a Visit to Carmel Mission (pictures

posted by: mashamcl on 07.05.2010 at 11:03 pm in Antique Roses Forum

I have really enjoyed some recent threads on neighbors' gardens around the world. I would like to make a little contribution and post some pictures from our recent visit to Carmel Mission. Well, I can hardly call it a neighbors' garden, but then in my little corner of suburbia the most prominent landscape feature is a lawn (sometimes mown) and a hedge (sometimes clipped). Hardly interesting. Today I took 239 pictures of the Mission, Bay and some private gardens. The landscaping is lush and beautiful, lots of California native plants and not a lawn in sight. In my humble opinion this is what more gardens around here should look like. For those of you who have not seen Carmel, I hope you get a feeling for what it is like. I hope you enjoy seeing these pictures as I enjoyed taking them.

The Mission San Carlos Borromeo del Rio Carmelo was established in 1770. By mid-19th century it was in ruins, and restoration began at the turn of the 20th century.

Meet the photographer and two reasons why the pictures are smudged, tilted and generally not as perfect as could be:-)

Notice the cloud cover coming from the sea in a straight blanket. The fog is burned off by the sun as the air warms up closer to land

My little "Nook" court yard to my front door:

Curved rose path along my afternoon patio:

Afternoon patio sheltered by Mme Alfred Carriere on a arch (Miracously didn't freeze back in this long hard winter - it has done that before ...) but now it will bloom until oktober ...:

Sorry I did not have timed to edit or crop the pics - I will rather enjoy my garden right now. But some wanted to see some pics ...
