Re: My other addiction.... gardening

Re: My other addiction.... gardening

Thanks James!  I will be posting some pictures of my barn as Susan loves old barns which mine is.  Mine is not the typical Ontario barn but has some history to it.  It is pouring :rain: and windy today high 54F, unusually mild for this time of year.  So will wait for a nicer day to take some pictures.
I love to garden but is very time consuming, along with my barn full of chicks to care for, plus my house, plus my job and my husband's business :whistle:  I am teased by my family that they will find me either passed out in the garden or in the coop with chickens all over me sleeping, LOL!!!!

Paula,

Absolutely beautiful! Thanks for posting them at this time of year....


When all else fails, go spend time with your chickens. :)

Pens are currently filled with Red Cuckoo (Marraduna) and Red Basque (Gorria) breeders, Spitz, and Seramas.

Re: My other addiction.... gardening

Beautiful Paula! I am not ready for the cooler night we are starting to have. I think summer is far too short.

Re: My other addiction.... gardening

Well my brother used to be into photography when he was in his 20's then got out of it.   He just started to pick it up again the past year, he has an awesome camera.

Claire, he took them that day, I saw him wandering through the gardens and wondered what he was up to.

Beautiful flowers Paula and great photos.  Your gardens are amazing even during the drought.

Re: My other addiction.... gardening

This is a shrub I purchased in the Fall of 2011, it never bloomed in 2012 but this year it did.  I can't remember what it is called but I just love the flowers:

Also my Golden Chain Tree is just loaded with blooms right now.

Re: My other addiction.... gardening

Beautiful photos Paula.  I think the shrub in question is a Weigela,  They come in different colour variations as well. Some have variegated leaves and deeper coloured blooms.
