READER PHOTOS! Jill's garden in Michigancomments (11) August 23rd, 2012 in blogs
Today's photos are from Jill Moore in Canton, Michigan. Jill says, "We have lived in our home for 22 years. We are the first owners, so it was a blank slate. The land where our subdivision is built was farm land. Through the years, we have brought in top soil as I added one flower bed after another. We have planted 35 trees through the years. The garden is an accumulation of plants from friends, purchases I couldn't live without (mail order and in the store), and the nursery clearance tables in late summer. Always thinning the herd, moving things around, and giving plants away, etc. I am a plant hoarder, so the garden evolves continuously. Roses are my favorite, and I have over 200 of them. I love giving perennials away to friends and family. I have a butterfly garden, too, and I bring the eggs I find on the host plants into the house and raise them. I release them when it's time. I currently have black swallowtails and monarchs at different stages of life in my dining room." Beautiful, Jill. I love the mental image I have of butterflies fluttering around your dining room!
