Judy's garden in Oklahomacomments (13) December 20th, 2012 in blogs
First, sincere thanks to everyone for your kind words for the past few days. Newtown is suffering badly, but the amount of love and support we're receiving is astounding. We appreciate every word, thought, and prayer.
OK, back to gardens, which do their fair share to help us heal from the punches life throws at us. Today's photos are from Judy Barton in Oklahoma (check that state off the list!!). Judy says, "My garden is in northwestern Oklahoma. It is now asleep for the winter so I am sending summer photos to enjoy. I experience huge challenges for gardening. Summers are windy, blistering hot, and dry. Our soil is clay and has a rocky shelf close to ground level so growing trees is a challenge. Therefore 95% of my garden is full sun. When we moved here 20 years ago, there were 2 climbing roses and the yard was Bermuda grass with weeds that were three feet tall. My husband and I have replaced most of the grass with beds for flowering shrubs, perennials, and ornamental grasses. We had a drip system installed for the flowers and shrubs. It is a huge time saver and my plants really love it. My plan is to transition most of my garden to native and drought tolerant plants." Gorgeous, Judy. The trumpet vine with the orange chair is perfect!! Thanks for sharing.
