Pat Clements sent in today’s photos.
I live in a hundred-year-old home in Mechanicsville, Virginia. When we moved here I said I was only going to have a small herb garden. Well, four gardens later and I’m still going strong!
Thanks for visiting my garden.
My gazebo, where you can find me every summer morning having my coffee and reading.
A bench to rest and listen to the wind chimes!
I drilled holes in galvanized buckets and planted hostas. They overwintered just fine. (Editor’s note: This is also a great way to protect hostas from the voles that love to eat hosta roots in this part of the country.) The red flowers are azaleas.
I just love gazing balls!
This pathway used to be out of control with weeds. We dug them out, put down high-quality landscape cloth, and covered it with pea gravel. It was labor intensive (says my husband!), but it is one of the best things I ever did.
The azaleas were especially gorgeous this year.
