It's that time again--time to practice what I preach and share some photos of my OWN garden! My hubby Rob (rwotzak) and I have been working our behinds off this spring, getting the garden ready for visits from family and for a garden baby shower we had last weekend for some dear friends, and while it still feels very rough around the edges to me (damned weeds!), it's in about as good a shape as it can be for early summer photos. Keep in mind that the containers have not filled in yet--I so admire people who cram plants in from the beginning and don't have to wait for things to fill in, but I just can't do it....I feel as if I'm torturing their roots! So I give every plant its space and wait patiently for them all to knit themselves together and grow up. Much more info in the captions..... Enjoy!

***SEE? I DID IT, SO NOW YOU CAN, TOO!! Dig out your camera, take a big long walk around your garden, and SEND ME PHOTOS! Thanks!!***

***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...
