Today’s photos are from Nina Schlosberg in Waltham, Massachusetts. Nina says, “I’ve been gardening here for over 20 years. Eventually there will be no more grass on the property because each year I keep expanding my perennial beds. I never met a daylily that I didn’t like. After I discovered the Knock-Out roses series, I’m back to planting roses around the yard.

I like photographing my garden throughout the seasons. And in the winter I make calendars or books as a record of that year’s highlights. I’m amazed how my yard is always an ongoing and evolving entity. At this time of year I can’t wait to get involved in it again.”

If that’s how good your garden looked last year, we can’t wait to see what it will look like this year! Thanks, Nina, for sharing with us. But the burning question is…who’s that adorable pup??

    Beautiful garden. I can relate to the expanding garden and the reduction of grass. I can't help myself when it comes to trying a new perennial. I love how you have curved your beds so that you wonder just what is around the corner. Nice job!

    I think having large grassy sections between highlights the specimen plantings, crowding plants makes them lose much of their value. I like that small tree in the first picture, it looks like mulberry but it's difficult to tell without seeing the leaf detail... most of the detail in that photo was lost by the camera focusiong on that porch post in the foreground and also from the bright light reflcting back from that light colored privacy fence at the very rear... those two elements caused everything between to blur. If that's a mulberry tree it will grow a lot larger and become a valuable element to that garden, I wouldn't plant anything else nearby, it's already being crowded. If not for the deer here I'd plant a number of mulberry trees in a stand, they're one of my favorites.

    Gorgeous garden. I love everything pictured.I experienced a serious pang of daylily lust at the one you featured in the closeup, Nina. Do you happen to recall its name? Besides being a wonderful color, it has such great substance and petal frilling.

    Nina, love your expanse of great plants and colors AND your most adorable garden sitter...he, or is that she, looks so shy peeking out. Daylily...oh I long for my own to burst forward into bloom but thankfully I have a riot of color and fragrances of others and this wonderful blog to keep me content until they do.

    Happily Gardening: I post different pictures of my "garden(s)" nearly every day. Today it's one of my flowering pear trees in bloom in its line of different trees that demark one of my property boundarys. I don't do formal gardening, what I do is maintain the naturalness of the 16 Catskill acres I live on. I have a huge library of photos I've taken here over the years but more than half are of the critters I share with... the last was of a doe feeding her fawn in my forest path that I maintain. This morning I was out hauling 40# bags of topspoil to dress around my newly planted trees... I just finished that flowering pear tree depicted and I'll be heading out shortly to do the next in line, American beech. If you click on my name the picture will enlarge enough to see more detail. I've already shared a number of pictures with Michelle via email and she posted my birch trees in fall color. A few days ago a bear destroyed my bird feeder so now I'm back to tossing bird seed onto the ground from my window, I think that works best here. I also own a 100 acre lot just across the county line, it's in organic hay, maintaine3d by a local cattle farmer. I don't do much on that property as it's naturally gorgeous and needs no help.

    Hi there Tractor1,
    I noticed your picture changes but I couldn't make out too much and I'd clicked on your name, getting a tad bit bigger picture, I just wanted more. WOW, what an incredible acreage you have and in the Catskills, how beautiful. I can only begin to imagine the spectacular views you must see on any given day from your windows. Boy, that's some hard work you mentioned...a labor of love. Bear...fascinating!

    Maintain the philosophy essentially conservative. This can be mostly influenced by the capability from the defensive group. [url=]ミュウミュウ 財布 新作[/url],Let's have extra bases whenever we can certainly, yet there is absolutely no purpose we should not have access to faith that our own members will bat us all in (if they are really doing all their job).[url=]ガガミラノ 時計[/url], Recreational softball is really a hitter's video game. [url=]ヴィヴィアンウエストウッド アウトレット[/url],When the team will be hitting properly, we have to n't have any troubles running conservative bases. [url=]ケイトスペード バッグ[/url],Aggressiveness around the base walkways ought to be inversely associated with great the team is smacking. [url=]セイコー seiko[/url],EX: you will not see from any of the greatest teams playing the sport today stretching many doubles directly into triples. When we make foundation running mistakes put into effect the bat out of each of our hitter's hands. [url=]ヴィヴィアンウエストウッド バッグ[/url],Who may have a powerful arm? [url=]ケイトスペード アウトレット[/url],That has an accurate arm? How nicely does the other team's cutoff program are most often performing? [url=][/url],The time would it be taking them how to get the ball in from your outfield? [url=][/url],These are typically just some of often the questions a good base trainer will be looking to answer as being the game moves on (as well as the remaining workforce, [url=]コーチ バッグ メンズ[/url],due to know whenever you is going to be base coaching).

    Keep in mind that provided that the particular ball with the outfield almost nothing can be carried out to stop runners through advancing. [url=]ガガボール[/url],The quicker a golf ball returns for the infield, the sooner we are able to prevent this sort of progression.

    The very best pitchers are those who can throw the strike whenever they should. [url=]セイコー 腕時計[/url],A good pitcher can often be one who throws numerous balls, nevertheless has few moves (it's named "challenging the hitters"). [url=]ヴィヴィアン 財布[/url],Conversely, a pitcher that has no strolls may be believe of throwing lots of attacks. [url=][/url],This might suggest they are not tough the particular hitters. [url=]コーチ バッグ[/url],Allowable limits for moves: 0 in order to 2 walks for every game and guides with no just one on basic. [url=]ガガミラノ 時計 メンズ[/url],Inappropriate limitations for walks: walking typically the 9th, 10th, or 11th batters, taking walks with 1st basic occupied. May ever argue using an umpire. It will not execute a little bit of good. It only hurts anyone and the staff. A good umpire may consciously or even subliminally get back to the visitor on that page plus the crew. And also the umpire's on the is a key factor to get influencing. [url=]ミュウミュウ アウトレット[/url],For example , when you find yourself hitting and the presentation is a minor strike or basketball, an umpire may unconsciously look for indications whether the pitch was a strike not really.[url=]セイコー 腕時計[/url], The split second you decide about to catch gonna swing in the toss, stop considering this.
