Joy's garden in Antiguacomments (10) December 28th, 2012 in blogs
Today's oh-so-welcome photos are from Joy Farrell in Antigua. She says, "Here are some photos of my garden in December. I live in Antigua in the Caribbean. I have a small rental with just enough land surrounding it to have a cozy garden. Friends have described it as an English cottage garden but with tropical plants. Having lived and gardened in both the UK and US, I feel fortunate to have this kind of weather, and to have blooms all year round. However, it does have its drawbacks, I always lose a few plants if the rainy season is extreme or if there is an extended drought period. The temperature is usually always somewhere in the 80's and there are constant tradewinds to offset the heat. I am always adding and changing something, considering there was nothing but grass when I moved in two and a half years ago, I have certainly added a lot." Gorgeous, Joy! How did you know that this is exactly what we needed? Thanks so much for sharing, and please do send more photos to help us get through the winter.
