So beautiful Carrie, and so many pretty flowers. A lot of stuff is just starting to bloom up here. Many annuals haven't started yet.

Good morning,
Thank you for doing all the work of creating your slide show. I always love seeing your gardens. There is so much more in bloom there than we have in zone 5, lucky you!

Thanks,karen - but I call my gardens "polka dot" gardens because I have so many colors scattered.

What I would like to do next year - is put all the daylily colors together - I think that would look better.

I'm with you - the gaillardias flopping make me crazy, but I love the flowers....

RE: Some pictures of my borders...

Thanks - I need to do a lot of work this coming fall and sort the daylilies and coordinate my colors - but since we ALL love flowers, I wanted to share my "babies" with you...

Stlgirl - no that pool is almost 14 years old - as old as the house is (we built it in '95)and my husband uses it mostly - especially after he runs...

I wanted to make a slideshow with larger views - didn't know how to do that - also, if I knew the names of my flowers, I would post that - just like wonderful Vera does - because it would be helpful, but I need to learn the exact names of some of my flowers.

Thanks for viewing

Carrie

What a space! Beautiful gardens, very lush, am envious of all those gazillions of plants....great show
blue bed is my favorite of all them, so relaxing...

RE: Some pictures of my borders...

Thank you for sharing your gardens with us! I can just imagine strolling through them with a cup of coffee in the morning. My favorite is the area with the bench. It just invites you to sit down and enjoy the view. I'm a little envious of all of your space, but I also know how much work you must have put into it too.

Gorgeous!! I so love getting to peak in someone else's garden. It's wonderfully inspirational to see all the lovely combinations you've put together.

Oh how beautiful! I hope my gardens grow up to look just like yours someday!

It won't let me see...it's asking for a password?

Oh well, I've walked them. :)
I suspect they are still beautiful.

RE: Some pictures of my borders...

Token, I thought it was just my lack of net savvy when I ran into request for password.

I don't have any photo storage accounts...don't have a camera...LOL.

Carrie, I wanna see your gardens again! :)

RE: Some pictures of my borders...

Absolutely gorgous! I think you could charge admission.

RE: Some pictures of my borders...

Carrie, Your borders are so beautiful! What a lovely treat your slideshow is! Thanks so much for posting it.

RE: Some pictures of my borders...

Thank you so much everyone - Next week I am going to post pictures of what my yard looked like before wsowing... Total woods - I will show before and after photos -

It's amazing how wsowing can change your life!

It looks like it's Summer there! I can only imagine how much those beds are going to explode when Summer does hit. You have so many blooms and color in your beds already.
Love how organized and neat everything looks.
(That's my next goal for our yard here...interspersing stone with the flowers and foliage plants.)

RE: Some pictures of my borders...

I LOVE the gardens!! Your hard work is evident and SO beautiful!!

I also imagined myself, with a cup of coffee, wandering your flowers!! Telling my kids to keep the soccer and tennis balls out of the beds...

Also, to view your photos I had to create a password and soon I'll figure out how to share photos:))

Most of my flowers are not yet in bloom, so I love looking at the yards that are!!

Thanks for sharing -

Your slideshow is wonderful .... now you need to set it to music ..... something by Enya might do well, or Yanni or .... what else, folks? (I'm pretty music impaired).

Oh, that was fun! Everything's so pretty. What's really awe-some is the pic of your raised beds in the making - before wintersowing. All of your crazy, beautiful beds are the products of WSing? Fabulous!

What a beautiful garden! Your efforts are paying off handsomely. The two shasta photos wouldn't play but captions showed, don't know what's with that.

I'm impressed! The foxglove looks like it might be Candy Mountain.

I'm not sure, but when I go to photobucket slide shows, after it cycles through the photos, when I hit my back button, it takes me to the previous photo. No, I checked and it's disabled.

So I remembered to open in a new tab so I could get back to the forum more easily.

RE: Some pictures of my borders...

Oh my Carrie - just beautiful - I have had company since last Friday and this is the first that I have been able to go through the entire slide show - what a treat - hope you don't mind if I steal or copy I guess is a better word some of your plant groupings. Your gardens rival anything that I see in magazines - Thanks for sharing ......

Don't let her fool you when she comes in talking about how awful they supposedly look today. I was just there. Still stunning. Still growing. She's not fooling anyone.

Got more melampodium reseeders and some Stella D'Oros. Montauk Daisy and....fresh, homemade cookies! She's so awesome.
