I am Showing Off my Garden


 

With the help of my daughter in law, I spent the day in the garden and I am going to share some of the fruits of our labor. Β I hope you will enjoy the pictures. The rose that is blooming is new to the garden and just planted today. I have photographed it in several types of light and all I can say is the color doesn’t come out right. It is a terracotta color. The pictures don’t do it justice while the colors for everything…absolutely everything else are true. I am one tired blogger.

    Hari Om! Barbara,

    What a beautiful garden you have.
    It would be lovely to sit in the garden in a cool winter evening sipping from a hot cupe of tea.
    But, I don’t go anywhere uninvited. πŸ˜‰

    Regards,
    Krishna

    • I am afraid that we do not have cool winter evenings. They range from cold to bitter cold.It is not weather for sitting in the dark. Now is the time I sit on my porch at night and commune with the night skies and savor the peace. I hope you have a place to do this too. Hugs, Barbara
