Take A Picture - It Lasts Longer!

Okay, just to nit pick something (else) to death, I just realized that I completely missed taking a picture of the best perennial garden we have.  Sort of takes the fun out of a "Hey, you get a gold star for having pretty much the entire (too big) yard weeded and mulched!" post.  Sigh.




St. Francis (yes, he's in there) has been covered up before. 



I can't figure out how to take an interesting picture of the dye garden.  It looks pretty good though :-).


Back porch


I love this little corner - added in some thyme between the big steps.


It won't last long and it's not garden show ready, but it's not too shabby for a farm yard.  Well, unless it's Skoog Farm.  Weaslie and I are not sure how Lori does it all :-o. Anyway, moving on to the next project.  Ready Weaslie?

Weaslie?

The cats are asleep somewhere, too. 

Sigh.

Oh wow. Those first couple of pictures blow me away. I am so far from having any real cultivated spaces, but I aspire to this. And a St. Francis statue? I need me one of those. :)

You have such an amazing place. I don't know how you keep up with it all.

Ditto Dancing Donkey. I'm lucky to get the lawn mowed before passers-by think we must have moved away. Just gorgeous and it must give you a peaceful Zen feeling at dawn or dusk to just gaze at it. :-)

Good job ... it's beautiful. My flowers are not doing well this year, even the iris that do so good with out much care didn't bloom like last year.

Weaslie is enjoying the nice cool grass.

Well, gold star removed. I think I've torched a couple of the new thymes. It got really hot here today. I knew that was going to be the case and should have watered them all early in the day. Crossing fingers and begging forgiveness from the plant fairies :-/.

Beautiful gardens and planters..weed free takes lots of work! :)

Mary said...

Go Weaslie! You look happy. And i think your gardens are gorgeous. Too manicured is overdone, i think anyway... :)

Amy Dingmann said...

So very beautiful, and so appreciated by someone who doesn't have anything growing yet because of the rain! WOW - it all looks GREAT! And that Weaslie...gosh, what a cutie...

Lori Skoog said...

You are a riot Sara! You're property is is nothing less than gorgeous and the gardens look terrific.

RMK said...

So what plants are in your dye garden?

Alice said...

You used nature to frame many of your garden photos and they make my eye so tend to the flowers ('cept for Weaslie who is a little "off center" anyway).
I do hope your thyme mends with time. ;-)

Beautiful pictures. Love a perennial garden - each year it gets larger and larger and more lovely each year.

Rebecca said...

Oh, Oh, Oh, I want a dye garden. Ok, I need a post on what to put in a dye garden and what colors each things make (in your spare time please) Remember you are the teacher and I am the student. :)

Shirley said...

Good thing miss Maisie isn't wandering around there any more! Lovely!

Strawberry Lane said...

Just beautiful! In fact, down right inspiring! (putting on my gardening gloves right now).
