Today's photos are from Barb May. She says, "I live in western Massachusetts in the Berkshires. I have lived in this house for 30 years. We raise four chickens and grass fed beef on about 7 acres. The gardens have evolved from absolutely nothing besides the prickly brush and sumac on the site when my husband & I built our house in 1981 to a full perennial and shrub garden backed up by a pool, as well as gardens all around my home and a raised-bed vegetable garden.
        I've always loved gardening & had a garden design/installation business for 10 years until I needed a knee replacement (I understand this is a typical gardener's ailment!). I now  maintain only my own spot. I'm a member of the Lenox Garden Club, which is a member of the Garden Club of America. I've been the club's Garden & House Tour chair for many years, and I'm always on the lookout for beautiful gardens in the area." Beautiful, Barb! I'm betting that no one would mind a second day of your garden, with lots more photos...And if anyone knows of a garden that you think Barb should consider for a garden tour, let her know in the comments.

Thanks to everyone who sent in photos last week! I would still ove to build up a bank, so send me some pics of your garden travels or of your garden last season!
