Hello! I'm over here on the front stoop! My name is Gabriel. Fiona Goosefeathers over at Hopalong Hollow Gazette gave a tour of her Mistress's garden. Mom thought that was a great idea so she decided since she's been so busy getting ready for her Tasha Tudor Tea she'd ask me to take you on a tour of our garden for her. . . .
We'll start here, from the front porch. Off to my left. . . .
. . . .is the garden where I found the bunnies. . . .
This is the path that I took to where the bunnies were. . . .
Ok, let's go this way. . . .
This is one of the new brick walkways Mom put in earlier this summer. . . .
They go all through the garden now. . . .
Mom did not expect the Dahlias to get this big. . . .
The Gardinia "tree" is getting ready for a second bloom. . . .
I'll take you into the Arbor now. See the new trellis Mom found at a yard sale for $5. The lady even offered to deliver it. Mom spray painted it to try to make it look antique. She's waiting for the rose bush to cover it up now. . . .
We're in the Arbor Garden now. The Silver Lace Vine does look like lace doesn't it. . . .
That's not a real chicken, in case you were wondering. You can be sure I'd not let an ol' chicken in MY garden. . . .
This is the kitchen window Mom always takes her photo from for her monthly View Outside My Kitchen Window post. Two hummingbirds have been visiting the Fushia. . . .
Hey! I'm back here now at the back of the Arbor. Can you see me?. . . .
OK. Back to business. I'll show you the rest of the front yard garden. . . .
That's the new thornless rose Mom got for $5 from Lowe's clearance section. Dad had to dig a hole and put in a new garden bed for it. . . .
This is to the left as you enter the Arbor Garden. . . .
See the new wrought-iron fence Mom found at an antiques store. It almost didn't fit in the car! They had to drive with the seat all the way forward. Good thing I wasn't along for that trip. . . .
This is to the right as you enter the Arbor Garden. . . .
Well, that's about it. Thank you for touring our garden with us. I'll lead you down the front steps. . . .
Be careful. The steps are a bit uneven. . . .
Bye! Thanks for coming. . . .
