OTHER GARDEN PHOTOS FROM THE PAST

As I look around the garden for photos to post I keep finding some that best be grouped and shown together in the same post.  Will try some in the next posts.  It is very enjoyable to look through the pictures and remember when and where that was. Sometimes I am saying to myself is that our garden or did we grow that.

IMG_3151Installing a frog bubbler Aug. 2009. It is still going strong and has been in several locations around the garden. Birds come and drink from the bubbling frogs mouth. This is one of three water features in the garden.  I have never seen any Deer or turkeys drinking from them but the telltale signs are there.

PHOTOS FROM THE PAST

While wandering around in my photo collections I have selected some photos to use in posts in LIZA AND JOHNS GARDEN.  Some used in earlier posts and Facebook. Others are waiting use.  I will be posting several post with 4 or 5 photos in each.  No particular order or sequence of the photos in each post.

This is what you see coming down our driveway. The colors and blooms are always changing providing a different view daily. This is fall as you can see the Burning bush turning to its burning color.  The burning Bush is now gone crowded out by the Hydrangea’s next to it.

Blue Iris was a prolific bloomer for years in the garden. It has now passed, needs replanting. Looking for more photos of this Iris, hope I have some.

*As I review the photos for each post I will be looking for interesting and informative photos. Actually have thousands of them making it a real pleasure to look at them and try to remember about them. I will also look at other blog themes to use for this type of posting.
