We have a new Master Gardener, so we went out to take photos of her garden to share with you. Paula always has the most beautiful hostas and roses. Her husband is a metalsmith so she has lots of beautiful metal garden structures. I took so many beautiful photos that it may take a week to share them all, so stop back by.
Nice shady spot by the pond to sit.
Two gazebos made by Paula's husband.
I love this little fishing boy by the pond.Well I have shown you the structures of the garden, so check back and I will share photos of the flowers.


Please join us for Green Thumbs in the Park on Friday May the 11th. We will have lots of plants for sale, and wonderful educational and entertaining speakers.

What do you do with this many tomatoes? Add them to the other four hundred you already planted.
Lots of work here, but worth it later on.
Heirloom tomatoes,corn, peas and peppers. Watch for them at the farmers market.

I love this iris. It is one passed around by members of the garden club-don't know the name.It was pulled up and brought bare root to a plant swap we had last month. I brought it home and planted it two days later, and now it is blooming. I say any plant that can take this much abuse is a keeper. I would advise anyone to go to plant swaps or plant sales-you never know what you might find.
