I'm a messy gardener. Don't let the lovely macros I sometimes deliver to my photo blog fool you. Over-all, my garden is low-budget, low-maintenance and there are times when I talk to the weeds. :-)

A journal of our humble New England garden. Dedicated to W.P., with love.

Growing Wild

A side garden that has been neglected for years. A mess that I will attempt to clean up one of these years!

Among that tangled mess are a few wild strawberries beginning to show their tiny flowers.

Closer to the river are a couple of patches of wild iris.

Today in the Garden

 Tulips, tulips, tulips  - I need more!

 The Peonies like it in the back garden and their stalks are looking very healthy!
