Gardening...love it or hate it!!!

                Oak Lawn Images is not just about photography. We like to provide a place for anyone who would like to come and enjoy the peace and serenity of our beautiful scenery. So, we work very hard all Spring, Summer and Autumn on our gardens, to provide a nice spot for folks to sit and relax as they take in the breathtaking view that we  are lucky enough to enjoy. 

We’ve just recently been able to get out and remove some of the fast growing weeds like dandelions, creeping Charlie, trip weed and stray grasses from the gardens. It’s been raining and wet so many days that it’s been hard to even get out. Here in the eastern part of Canada, we’ve had to do what gardening we can between the downpours.  And of course there’s  the high rubber boots and old clothes.

Today, for the first time I was able to do some badly needed edging. I managed to get two gardens, one tiny and one medium one finished. We still have about 15 to go.
We’ve been lucky to have some of the early plants in bloom. We have the grape hyacinth’s, some of the tulips, pansies, daffodils, one of the bleeding hearts and most recently the rose tree of China.

We’re just hoping we have some good days ahead to get out at the gardens, before the black flies and mosquitoes arrive.

I’m wondering how everyone else feels about gardening and how you’re coming along with your own gardening?

  1. So far, I've scrubbed out all my pots for new stuff. That's as far as I've gotten.

  2. My gardens are a mess, but we are still getting lovely days so there is really no excuse for me not to do some gardening before winter sets in.

  3. The rain certainly has made it a challenge to get out in the gardens. Yours sound exquisite though!

  4. I'm glad I came back to see the photos - they are beautiful!

  5. Beautiful flowers - and colours! So different from Australian natives, but so great both have their place in this world!!

  6. Your photos are lovely.
    We have our garden planted, it is modest: tomatoes, snow peas, bell peppers, cantaloupe.

  7. wow the photo are beautiful - I love all the colours. :)

  8. Kathy, the flowers out front, that I got from you, were such a beautiful blue yesterday!! Today...they're gone. Darn deer!!!

  9. @ Monica. Were they the grape hyacinth? If so they'll be back later this Summer and again next year. They multiply from the roots.
    That's too bad the deer got them, for now.

  10. I enjoy gardening, I don't know if I would want as many gardens as you seem to have, but I would like more than the 4 potted plants on our deck. Living in an apartment I'm thankful that I'm allowed to have the plants I do, since I've rented in places that don't let you have any potted plants.
