|From In the Garden|
All gardens need a name and my gardens are no exception. While each individual garden here has a name, the overall property is named Tiger Gardens. The name Tiger Gardens comes from a combination of my name (Tina) and my husband's name (Roger). When combined the two names make Ti-Ger perfectly. I had picked the name quite some time ago but had yet to come up with a good sign announcing to all visitors the name of the gardens, but here it is-making its big debut on the worldwide web.
I purchased the black metal letters at Hobby Lobby when they were drastically marked down. I did have to buy the long deck board to mount the letters to using 'Gorilla Glue', but for a total of about $20 I have a fine looking sign that fits right in with the character of my home and gardens. As a bonus, Mr Fix-it says to me, "That sign looks really good." You know you've done good when your non-gardening hubby notices something new and even likes it!
Does your garden have a name, and if so, is the name posted somewhere in your garden?

P.S. The picture is formatted in cartoon mode. I really like the effect. I took this picture from an upstairs room so it is not really slanted like in the photo. I just couldn't figure out my photo software enough to straighten it out.
While Skeeter is on break helping her family recover I have a few extra posts I will post this week. We'll see next week what else I have but there may be some Tuesdays and Thursdays with no posts depending on what I have going on. Thanks and best wishes to Skeeter and all the flood victims! The way the community has pulled together to recover is amazing.
For all local readers, I have several Montgomery County Master Gardener Garden Tour tickets for sale. The tour is this Saturday from 9 am-3 pm. The plant sale will be held at Dr. Mathews garden and no ticket is required for that plant sale. Tickets are required to view the garden though. Tickets cost $10 and if you email or call me I can make arrangements to get the tickets to you today-if you let me know early enough. Thanks.
