My Garden Moments of the Year…Farewell 2013….

 

      As 2013 draws to a close, its time to reflect on my many garden moments throughout the year. 2013 was an exceptional year for my garden; blossoms galore, abundant rainfall, tolerable summer temperatures and shhh… magazine photo shoots, to name just a few. I’m hoping mother nature will bless my garden once again for 2014.

So, just sit back relax, and enjoy my 2013 garden virtual tour….Cheers and Happy New Year!

  1. What a spectacular find! I was researching Don Juan climbing roses as I just planted one in my garden, and was directed to your blog! How fortunate I am to have found it! I’ve added your blog to my blogroll and look forward to many more visits. You are a true artist. Thank you!
