Today's photos are from Sue Moyer in Ohio. She says, "This is my yard in Milford, Ohio. We've lived here for 37 years and we have used a ton of pine bark mulch with conditioner and compost to amend the soil. Our soil is mostly clay and the after all these years, we finally have great soil. I have flower beds throughout the yard. I think my husband has been encouraging me so he won't have to mow as much. The little pond in the back was my first attempt at putting in a pond and the birds, squirrels, and neighborhood dogs love to get a drink in the summer. I love to mix different shades of greens, especially in the shade garden. The hostas, liriope, lambs ears, Japanese forest grass, and sweet flag make a great presentation. I like adding some interest to my flower beds and adding pots, birdhouses, and a little gnome garden are a few. We are in the process of putting in a larger pond with a waterfall and would love to share pictures when we are finished." Beautiful, Sue! That little pond is especially sweet, and your stone edging is gorgeous! You MUST send photos of the bigger pond when it's finished. Thanks!

***OK, everyone, keep going. 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!***

***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...

cwheat000 writes: Sue, your home and garden looks very warm and inviting. The picture of the basket on the chair, epitomizes that cozy feel, and is so pretty. I love the grasses, that wonderful little pond, and the generously filled beds. Posted: 5:20 pm on May 21st

Wife_Mother_Gardener writes: Wonderful garden, Sue! Nice plantings and I love that cute little pond :) Posted: 8:22 am on May 21st
grannieannie1 writes: Sue, it is easy to see you enjoy experimenting with your garden adding different areas, working with the shade then adding the touch of whimsy, or the zing of yellow with pink. You found the perfect thing to do with an old chair.

Oh, and "Yes" to the sweet pond! And "yes" to a bigger one! (We've upsized three times--one can never have too much pond!)

Thank you for sharing your garden. Posted: 7:36 am on May 21st
Daisy64 writes: To DSBaloi, some of the birdhouses were bought and some were made by my husband. The face in the Sweetpeas was purchased at a craft mart. Posted: 6:42 am on May 21st
meander1 writes: Sue, your garden looks very well loved and well tended...I'm a sucker for whimsy so count me a big fan of all your special touches. Your beautifully put together flower basket set on the aged chair is beguiling and is whispering "Copy me...you know you want to!" Your gnome garden is adorable and looks in perfect balance. Love it all! Posted: 6:39 am on May 21st
pattyspencer writes: Totally love your garden - I usually have just 1 favorite picture but today I have so many I can't just choose 1 - just beautiful!

Michelle - seems the glitch I've been having has been fixed (at least as of today - lol - thank you) Posted: 6:38 am on May 21st
