Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

A Few Photos

I am really pleased with how this planter turned out this year.  It's a mix of sedum and succulents.


The clematis has grown the tallest ever and had the most blooms ever.



It does have a die off problem.  See the brown leaves.  Not sure what's happening there.


Enjoy seeing this purple flower (name escapes me for now).  I think it likes this spot though it doesn't all stay upright.


Sundrops are just starting to bloom.


A look back at the yard.  We've had some rousing games of croquet on that lawn this summer already.  More games to come!

Such happy photos, Marcia! Your succulent planter is so pretty. The little quail is the perfect embellishment, adding a bit of the southwest. Your Clematis blooms are beautiful. Our first Clematis blossoms should open this weekend. Your backyard is so pretty! I just love it! Happy June days in the garden! ♡Dawn
