Garden Tuesday: Garden

One of the nifty things about living in a house built in 1928 is all of the oddities that exist in and around it, which simply aren't in new houses.  Our walled garden is an example.

Don't you just love this archway?  There's an oak gate on it, with a latch, which the lawn service never fails to leave open.  Oh, well, it's only keeping the deer out anyway.  And on the inside are a pair of burning bushes, which we've trimmed so they form an arch inside.  If it weren't raining outside, I'd have taken a picture from inside, too.  Well, maybe next week.

Hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend.  School starts here tomorrow, so it's a little hectic!

Happy Tuesday!

P.S. We put the fear of God in our lawn service when they left a gate open ONCE. No repeats.

I too love your archway within the garden wall, and all the tree plantings you have added over the years.

I hope all goes very well for Ryan and Mark over this new school year, and that Ryan stops growing fairly soon!!!! If he is already 6'4"+ then Jeff is definitely under threat, or maybe already the 2nd tallest?!?

Hi Marjie - hope you have all had a great summer - I've got a minute to myself for a change and am enjoying reading your August and September posts.

What beautiful outside space you have - it reminds me of one of my favorite childhood books; - The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett :-0)
