Today in the garden...

I made these "posies" last year...
Boo! Our old andirons! This Deodora Cedar will grow to 80 ft. I planted it from an 8-inch pot 3 years ago...
The bluebird of happiness welcomes folks to this pathway!
My students made these for me in 1987.
I bought a cheap pasta bowl at Costco, mounted it on a ceramic stand, and Tah-Dah! Birdbath!
I dug up these Columbine originally from my husband's dead mother's garden.
Love the Dutch Iris. The posts in back were old bed posts. I painted them red and they will soon have bird houses on top!

Mrs. Bradshaw's Geum! One of my favorite flowers. I've had it for 9 years...moved it here from the old house...
Beautiful Foxgloves! I planted them from seed 2 years ago. As they are biennials, this is their year to bloom!
Camas, Columbine, and cool insulators!

I made this wall of plantlife. It includes: Globe allium, Golden Hops, White Clematis, and a Climbing Hydrangea
Mint, herbs, wegelia, and little country touches...
Iris with a view!


Galatians Azalea along the roadside out front!
I bought an old shipping box from Holland bulbs, painted it white years ago, and now it serves as shelving on the edge of a deck...I made the birdbath on top after reading a Mary Engelbreit idea book!
2 weeks ago, while driving to McMinnville, I found this chair in a ditch alongside the highway! I stopped, opened my trunk, and now it's mine!
BEAUTIFUL SPRING IN OREGON!

The more you write about your garden, the more you reveal about it's beauty. Fantastic photos. A joy to look at and the chair is fab. The UK is abit of along way for me to come for one of those chairs, so I'll just have to be content with looking at the fab pictures of your garden!
