Today's photos are from Glenda Curdy. She says, "I have always loved being outside in the dirt from the time I was a small child. I am a self-taught gardener and love foliage versus flowers. I am a bird lover also, so many of my plants are planted with birds in mind, especially hummingbirds. My gardens have been evolving in this yard for about twenty-four years. If something doesn't work I simply move it. I don't take myself too seriously when it comes to gardening. If I can't remember a plant's name, oh well. I own a business and several of my plants have come from my customers--how wonderful to walk around the gardens and think of each person who has helped shape my landscaping. I also enjoy the Asian influence in my gardens so I designed most of the wooden structures and Don built them with a little help from me. We are always coming up with new ideas to make our gardens our very own. In the back we originally had a small pond but we took it out and put in the rock feature with the bamboo spout. I planted heavily around it so the birds feel safe and protected while bathing. This may be my favorite feature in our back yard. Nothing feels better to me than a great day working in the garden, backache and all when I'm done. Pure joy." It shows, Glenda. Your garden is wonderful!

***I'm getting so many great submissions, but I can always use more! Dig out your cameras, take a big long walk around your garden, and SEND ME PHOTOS! I love having more than I could possibly process to choose from. Thanks!!***

***One more thing.....have you always wondered what your fellow GPODers are like in person? Never thought you'd get a chance to meet them? Check this out.... While the GPOD isn't officially a taunton forum, it's close enough, and I wanted to extend the invite. Anybody at all interested? I'd be willing to search for some gardens to tour...
