Everything looks so neat and tidy in your borders and gardens!
I'm so impressed!!

I saw some ferns at the store yesterday... made me think of you, and all your beautiful ferns.

Did you decide to keep the cocoa hull mulch?

Have a great weekend, my friend.

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR...this is so so awesome. Everyone dreams about a yard like must live in the south.

Pamela Gordon said...

Wow, I remember when this was buried under 4 feet of snow not too long ago, Lynne. It looks so beautiful. I know it's a lot of work too, much more extensive than our little flower beds! Very nicely done! Relax and enjoy the weekend, okay? xo

Michelle said...

It all looks so fantastic to me!

Hi Lynne,
I got exhausted looking at the grass growing between the bricks. See I love a brick path as well and I'm forever taking the grass from mine. I should just leave it and let it grow as I'm sure everyone looks at the beauty of the garden as I did look at yours - but saw the grass :-) your garden is a lovely spot with so much to do.

LOVE! Hostas & ferns & snow on the mountain are some of my favorites - so lush & beautiful.
Since we added on last summer, I had to tear out all the hostas & plants on our north side (the side that extended) .. now I need to get a new walk path made & get them replanted. You're giving me lots of inspiration!!

Beate said...

What a beautiful garden! Love all the summer green - I wish I had a garden like this, with a forest all around. So wonderful :) I know it's a lot of work, but so worth it. Have a happy Sunday!

Oh Lynne,
Your garden is amazing …… and, very much like mine !! We have so many ferns and hostas as they grow so well in our north facing garden.
Thanks so much for your lovely comment today but, your garden is so beautiful. How long have you lived in your home ? We have lived here for 27 years and, when we came here there was nothing much to speak of. Being north facing, some things don't grow very well although, every part of the garden gets sun at some point in the day. I think that we like the same sort of plants !! XXXX
