Nothing in the world gives me more joy, than looking at my garden. The delicious scent of Phlox is breathtaking.....not to mention the beautiful colors that it comes in. Six inches of Begonias in Coral color can be mesmerizing.....OH! and my Dahlias 12 inches across are awesome....

I say to all those people that have incomplete lives............plant an ornamental garden with beautiful flowers...and make that the first thing that you look at, when you get up, first thing in the morning.

I LOVE MY GARDEN.....

And make sure your beautiful garden is protected from DEER. They can desimate a fortune and months of work in one night.

I can see it in my mind (although, yea, photos would be nice too).



Another reason for photos, it'll never look this way again.

gardens are always changing.

You are SO right. I always swore off the notion of gardening, with all the hard work and maintenance, until I started one a few years ago (flowers first, then veggies). Sure, there are always challenges here and there, but the joy of having something beautiful and productive to look at each day is one of the most rewarding things ever. I'll never be without some sort of garden, big or small, flowers or vegetables.

My son has no patience. He tried, but will never make a good teacher.....
