You all are in for a special treat today! Today you get to see Skeeter's garden through my eyes. And what a sight! I have visited Skeeter and the Saint's house on numerous occasions in the past but somehow I have never made it there during prime gardening season. This year was the year! Skeeter had invited to down to her Georgia home to attend the McCorkle's plant sale last month and her garden was looking oh so good. I was quite astonished. You see, even though I had never visited Skeeter during prime gardening season I could see the 'bones' of her garden even during the winter. Over the years those bones have grown phenomenally to the point that her garden was looking as good as the Atlanta Botanical Gardens-though on a smaller scale of course.
Today and Friday you will get an up close and personal view of my wonderful co-blogger's garden in Georgia. The opening photo shows a long view of a few of the gardens. The picture above shows some stunning color in the form of coleus amidst a garden bed.
How about some whimsy? These lovely stone birds require no feeding from Skeeter or the Saint-as a bonus they don't eat the plants either.
A beautiful Boston fern set amidst a serene setting near a birdbath makes for a welcoming sight in the garden.
A long shot of all the pieces put together.
Finally, on this post I believe this to be Confederate Jasmine-Skeeter? You may recall Skeeter has posted on it numerous times. Please correct me if I am wrong Skeeter as I did not catch this pretty's name. It was most lovely and not a plant I am familiar with at all.
Come back Friday for some more peeks into Skeeter's beautiful and large garden. I had such a good time in her garden and could really see her vision-it is quite the vision too....
in the garden....
