READER PHOTOS! Jane's garden in Tennesseecomments (16) July 25th, 2012 in blogs
Today's photos are from Jane Crewey in Bristol, Tennessee. Jane says, "I have worked on my garden for 20 years now and it has matured since these-pictures were taken and some plants have been replaced. It is never ending! I have always loved to garden but mostly flowers were my passion. When I took the Master Gardener Program in Abingdon, Virginia, I was introduced to English gardens and Italian gardens and a whole world of botanical plants for 12 months of gardening. I started going to nurseries everywhere, visited botanical gardens, obtained gardening books, and began the journey of creating a beautiful garden rich in variety and texture. I have a woodland garden, a rose garden, and an area I refer to as the "Park" with a bench for contemplating the wonders of God's creation.
I have 2 ponds, one is a koi pond, the other is for water lilies. I have incorporated brick as well as stone paths, mirrors in the reflection garden, arbors, gates, a gazebo, and garden house to store all things related to gardening as well as my golf cart for easy transportation and hauling around the garden.
The garden also has tulips, daffodils, daylilies, 'Casa Blanca' lilies, fragrant hostas, lily of the valley, forget-me-nots, primroses, lilacs, and a tree wisteria, just to name a few. I am very fond of good smells in the garden, some of which bring back memories of childhood. I often say, "there is no problem you cannot solve in a garden." This was the first place God made for man and instructed him to take care of it. It is therapy to work in a garden and I love mine so much." Beautiful, Jane! I love how formal but romantic your garden looks.
