The View From Here


Since I named my blog "In the Garden with Miss Jean" I thought it was about time I showed you some pictures of my back yard. It's still a work in progress, an obsession of mine. Everyone who sees it says it's beautiful. I was watching a gardening show one day and the woman being interviewed had a glorious garden. She said as beautiful as everyone says it is, when she sits down to admire it all she sees is work that needs to be done, a weed to be pulled, a branch that needs pruned. She felt that most gardeners are like that. My sentiments exactly!


This is a bunny topiary!

Another bunny? Yes, they are all over the yard!

Can you see it?

Told you so!


I'll be posting more pictures as time goes by. The title of my post is taken from the blog of one of my favorite authors, Susan Wiggs. I've spoken of her in previous posts. I love to read her books while drinking a cup of tea and looking out at my yard. Hop on over to her blog and give her a visit.

Enjoy my view!

Miss jean I just love your garden.When mine is a little greener I will post some pics.
Here in Ky things are just starting to come out.
You will have some extra help in the garden this year I am sure Miss Maggie will love to help.

Wow! It's so beautiful Miss Jean! And so true what you've said about gardens -- I'm the same way -- I look out and see all the work and my garden can't even hold a candle to yours. Our yards are just starting to wake up. I can't wait until we can sit outside once again -- I certainly wish I had your view!

This all looks so beautiful, just wonderful!! But I am a lucky one and have seen this glorious corner of your world in person and just love it as much as in the photos, plus I can smell the flowers too.

Lovely!

Hugs to Maggiemissnibbletoes,

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love it when I get to meet someone new. We have alot in common, quilting gardening tea, like the same movies and authors!
Your garden is beautiful. I like how you plant lots of different things in one pot and the bunnies, well they are adorable. I noticed the picture of an open gate with a cream tea sign on the side of your blog. It looks like a place in England somewhere.
Thanks for adding me to your favorites. I look forward to getting to know you.
