Right now we’re visiting Paula Brown’s lovely backyard in Ottawa, Ontario.
I like my crops, and so they love me.
These photos have been taken a few weeks in the past, and extra crops are nonetheless coming to bloom. Within the spring my roses are floriferous! I like bringing sick crops again to vigorous well being—so rewarding! Seeds, bulbs, annuals, perennials, I like all of them!
I’ve been gardening all of my life, as my mother and father cherished vegetable gardens. I also have a tomato plant within the photos that I’m sending. My daughter gave me the plant, and my backyard welcomed the little man with open arms. My real love is flowers, although, as you’ll be able to see!
It at all times amazes me how the crops annually work so nicely collectively.
It’s onerous for me to choose a favourite plant, however I must say hibiscus when they’re in bloom. I like the pink coloration, and so they scream, “Have a look at me!” The ocean of Shasta daisies (Leucanthemum × superbum, Zones 5–9) is a implausible backdrop for the pink hibiscus.
My husband edges the backyard for me so superbly. It offers the gardens that edge of sophistication which I like. I hope to be gardening for a very long time to return, regardless that I’m in my mid-70s. Time will inform, however the crops have grow to be my mates over time, and I do imagine that I can communicate “plant.”
