My Sister’s Flower Garden
My sister and I share a passion for gardening, which we inherited from our mother.
Even though we both are separated by the ocean, we plant similar flowers, and gardening is one of our hobbies.
We exchange flower and vegetable seeds via snail mail, as share pictures of the fruits of our labor.
Today I will share some pictures my sister sent to me of her flower patches.
There is a small water garden between the bunch of flowers and the front of the house. Also, to the left of this picture is a wood carving, my brother-in-law created out of a tree stump.
The Morning Glory really is thriving in this spot of the garden, climbing freely over the split rail fence in the back of their property.
These flowers bring childhood memories, as our mother had them in her garden, and many of our neighbors did as well.
They need a special spot to thrive in, since they can easily reach 6 feet in height.
My sister uses every possible available spot, to plant some flowering plants all over her property, and even in window boxes.
Here is another view of the Morning Glory climbing on a mash fence closer to the house, and a closer view of the flowers in front of the house.
This is only a small percentage of the flowers my sister plants. She has a myriad of varieties of flowering plants in other spots of her spacious property.
She also grows several different fruit trees, Raspberry bushes, Red Currents bushes, Strawberry patch, and a bunch of vegetables.
She told me that this year her cucumbers were “multiplying like rabbits”.
She pickled many of them, and gave lots of them to friends, and they still kept on producing. That’s how it is with gardening…it’s feast or famine…:-)
I hope you enjoyed these pictures.
Today is my sister’s Birthday, hence I am dedicating this post to her.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY SWEET SISTER!!
