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.

Out the Front Door

I never enter or exit from my front door because the car is in the garage.  This time of year I do like to have it open for the view especially now with the hibiscus in its full glory.



The black-eyed susan are also adding to the color show.










The yellow/green creeping jenny is filling out the pots again after being munched by deer.


Inside the vestibule an angel keeps watch


and friends are welcomed by a sign painted by my dear mother many many years ago.


Come by for a visit!

Such a lovely welcome, Marcia! Your Hibiscus is just gorgeous. The Rudbeckia looks like a bright patch of sunshine. Hope the hungry deer won't visit your garden again for a very long time!
