Introduction: A Garden Story

About: Retired, doing art work now. Great. Have the time and the money to spend doing what I want to do.

These are pictures of my garden(s)...it has been a beautiful spring and I think that is reflected in these photos.  I am always amazed at how things grow, it seems there is always something happening that you didn't anticipate, and is always a pleasant surprise.  Enjoy!

    Being from SoCal originally, nad now liviing in Wisconsin, I was happy to see the bouganviellia (sp?) and was also happy I had to see the whole garden before I found what I miss the most (last 2 pics)!

    Thanks so much for sharing! I only have tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, and crocuses blooming so far. The cherry and plum trees just started blooming too, though....

    You have a beautiful garden - just like I would have - including the pool!
    :)

    Thank you! In an apartment, the only way to go is with containers...small ones, or as large as your deck will allow. Stack them by using stands or carts with shelves...so many options...topsy turvy tomatos, carrots in pots, etc..good luck!

    Thanks so much for your comments. I am in So. Calif., and you are right. February here is like May in the northern states. I grew up in Oregon and don't miss those winters at all. This is the most ideal climate in the entire world, as far as I am concerned. Now if we could just deal with the people issue (way too many)!
