I’m a little late in this post but I had so many pictures to go through I tried to narrow it down a little. I really, really enjoy gardening. It’s therapeutic for me to get my hands in the soil and plant seeds that I get super excited to watch grow. I truly, truly let things bloom where they are planted it’s just so exciting to me to watch a little green plants pop out of the soil and turn into a beautiful flowers or something to eat. I have three sunflowers that replanted themselves in the strangest of spots in the garden, one is right in front of my back window so I will be able to see its big yellow head when it blooms. I got a random holly hock in my front garden from seeds I had collected from a nursery that was going out of business, it surprised me when it popped up this spring and is now in bloom. I even love weeding. I just love being close to the earth that’s all and so I really respect and admire the people who open their homes and gardens up for the Mary Lou Heard Memorial Garden Tour You can read a little about Mary’s story HERE . She was an amazing, strong and brave woman who leaves behind a rich legacy. A single mom who struggled with depression and found her passion and healing in gardening. All the money donated goes to the Sheepfold and non-profit organization who helps single mommies. It’s all so good, all of it.
And now for a few of my favorite pictures from the garden tour which I had a wonderful time at with some really amazing ladies I know. I hope you enjoy the pictures and can imagine the time spent developing these gorgeous gardens.
