A tour through my garden…..

While our part of Michigan has been in the seemingly unending grip of a draught, my work in the garden doesn’t end.  Nearly every day I fill a wheelbarrow to overflowing with the removal of trimming and dead-heading those flowers now done with their spring and early summer showing.

Here’s a tour of my end-of-June garden….

I realize that I haven’t posted in nearly a week but I’ve been working in my garden like a woman possessed.  Here’s an update of the profusion of color that is exploding in my world.  It’s hard work but what a pay off, beauty abounds.
