Nadia’s Garden 2016

Foxglove flowers clusterMy daughter enjoys gardening as much as I do, my sister and my mom.

Her 8-year-old daughter also shows interest in nature and plants…a future gardener in training…:-)

I am so proud of them!

This  year she changed her landscaping, by adding a stone landscaping wall, replacing all her shrubs, and rearranging  her perennials.

Right now everything is quite small and new, but next year it will be a real showcase.

Today I will share some pictures I took of her landscaping and plants.
