I thought that today I would show you a lovely garden, some of it was there when I was a child, but most of it is new. I am so glad to get these photos loaded as blogger was giving me a little bit of a problem today! These are photos from my aunt's garden in Northern Germany.
The little blue pool is probably as old as me!! I don't remember if it was blue when I was a child during the stay in Germany, but I do remember my brother falling into it!!
My aunt has a lot of roses in the front of this bed too, and the last time we (my daughter & I) were in Germany some 10 years ago the Leland cypress were not this tall!!
Being as this was towards the end of September, my aunt had already removed the top to the gazebo to prepare for the winter.
The inpatients were beautiful as well as the fuchsia which she stored away a few days later.
Love this concrete basket with the begonias! My mom told me that my aunt has had this probably as long as the blue concrete pool!!
Did you notice the stork on top of the topiary bush? So many cute details! I want my pond to be this big too.
A walk way leading over to the gazebo, and another pond.
Is this not cute?!!! I sooo love it!
This is one of my favorite views. Totally gorgeous!
My aunt works so hard in her garden, and once she knew we were coming she added more details plus last minute work. So you can see now, gardening runs deep on both sides of my family!!!
I hope you have enjoyed this little garden view, and since it is raining outside today I am going to do some blog reading! Because when the sun comes out you know where I will be (hence slow posting and blogging!) I certainly have a long way to go before it will look like this, but I'll certainly give it a shot!!
