The Watson/Shelton Garden

Not all homes with lovely gardens are grand.  Just look at this charming cottage. That's LeRoy on the porch talking to Tom. 



 There was so much to see just in the front garden. 



 The bees were busy here. 
 Laura loves clematis, and has lots of them.  This one is spectacular!

 Here we go around the side, through the arbor and into the back yard. 
 Up against the house is a very tall Chilean fire tree.
 It's blooms are fire engine red.


 The cute little chicken coop
is home to equally cute chickens. 


 Free form raised beds will soon be filled with vegetable starts.
 The happy bees also have a lovely purple home.  I was assured they were much too busy to bother with me. 

What a fun garden!

  1. What a lovely garden! Great shot of the fire tree bloom. I've enjoyed your recent posts about the latest NPA tours, but I've been away from home and couldn't comment. Thanks for sharing your photos and stories from them.
