If you have a garden and a library...

Saturday, July 13, 2013

The full quote is "If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need." --Marcus Tullius Cicero

Marcus was a Roman Statesman who lived between 106 BC and 46 BC. Obviously a very wise man from a long time ago.

I love my garden! It gives me pleasure to look at it and to work in it. I just wanted to share some photos:

I love the combination of textures and colors.

Is there anything more beautiful and delicate than a lace cap hydrangea?

Both of these hydrangea are at least 30 years old. The one on the left was transplanted about 3 years ago from another location where it wasn't growing well. It was a small twisted pretzel of a plant. As you can see it caught up!

My backyard view.....

Enough relaxing....time to get on those garden gloves and get some work done!
