This was my favorite garden – The Cumming’s Family – except for the green and white Sparty stuff scattered about…
By-the-way, I apologize for not posting lately. I had a computer glitch and my son and grandson were in town… If you are a subscriber and received a blog with Stan Hywet in the title and Troy info in the body…I have no idea how that happened…the computer God in the sky was messing with me…
This blog is going to be a lot of photos…like what else is there on a garden walk, but great views of wonderful gardens…and how else can we remember them…?
As someone once said…there is no such thing as a bad garden. Everyone’s garden is different…just like our personalities…! The Cummings family have a sence of humor, very evident in their garden.
Let’s move on to another one of my favorites…the Rose garden of the Lower family….
Renee Lower is a bona fide Rosarian with over 200 roses of all kinds in her yard…I hear they are absolutely crazy wonderful in June.
Orange Trumpet vine, Clematis and more make up her hummingbird/butterfly area as you walk down the stairs towards the lake.
Another fun garden was the Horbach family garden. Chris Horbach has kept up the garden that was her husband’s passion…and now loves dabbling and adding plants after he built the basic structure of the garden.
The arched bridge built by Chris Horbach’s late husband balances the weeping white spruce, blue spruce, Japanese maple and other plantings beside the swimming pool
The Held family backyard is built for entertaining…
Doesn’t everyone need a shaded tiki bar with cool refreshments on a hot day…and balls of plants hung from the roofline? Yup, I think so.
This shed is so cute. They were also selling some of the garden art found around the garden that they make…
Finally…back to my favorite garden…we all need a little whimsy in our lives…and recycling is good too…!
Now, why didn’t I think of that?
I just might copy…you know copying is the best form of flattery…or something like that…
Make a pact to go to at least one garden walk this year. It is a great way to meet nice people, get ideas for your garden…and help get you motivated to pull those weeds in your own garden…or tackle a garden project you have been putting off…!
Happy garden walking…and picture taking…!
