Today’s photos are from Carolyn Black. She says, “This is my garden in South Central Pennsylvania. I still work full-time and my hobby is flower gardening. My husband and I increased the size of our gardens after we became empty nesters. I love to experiment with container gardening. I like to plan my flower gardens with texture and color combinations. I enjoy the challenge of having a four season perennial garden.
We have a large bird garden in the back of our home. This was created with the intention to create a habitat for birds. Birds need water, food, shelter, and nesting spots and we provide that for them in our garden. We enjoy watching the birds all year long. My husband created a man-made stream for me in our bird garden. That is the focal point of that garden and we enjoy the soothing sound of the running water.
We have two other small water gardens as accents for flower beds. My favorite flower is the hydrangea and we have 21 hydrangea bushes. I enjoy cutting the blooms and displaying them in our home. I like to personalize my garden with items that remind me of family and friends.”
Wow, these flower-packed gardens have been turning me green with envy lately, and Carolyn, yours is no exception! Beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing!
