Wordless Wednesday w/ LINKY ~ gung-ho gardener

I love to garden.  I didn't have much opportunity last year to do it since I was super preggers and we had MANY very humid days.  So most of my time was spent tending to my indoor plants.  This year though, my gardens will be well taken care of.  Here are some pics from previous years.

My canvas.  Spring 2009

This is the outline we started with.  I wanted more.

It turned into this. Originally I wanted the whole front yard as gardens. 

Summer 2009

Spring 2010

Hellebores

Hellebores "Green Lotus"

Pansies, Painted Fern, "Praying Hands" Hosta, Jack in the Pulpit

Tree Peony in bloom.  "Shima nishiki"

Spring 2012

white Columbine

purple and yellow Columbine

Hostas, Astilbe, Dwarf Goat's Beard

Majority of this is Bee Balm.  I eventually moved it because it was taking over.

Early Summer 2012

I stopped taking pictures of the garden shortly before my daughter was born in August.  I actually extended this garden a bit while I was pregnant instead of weeding.  It was a lot easier than weeding.  I have more gardens that I will take before and after pictures of this year (they are looking pretty terrible) and I will post more pictures of my front garden since the changes and our veggie garden.  Can't wait to get out in the sunshine!

    1. Thank you Faythe! I chose to just show my some-what organized front garden because my other gardens are in shambles and have been very neglected. I have a favourite plant farm that I go to, to pick up whatever plants that catch my eye so I have lots of diversity for sure! Thank you for linking up. I'm new to this blog stuff, so it is nice to meet and network with fellow bloggers.

    1. Thanks Paula! If you want to be a gardener, just start small with some container-gardens. There are so many hearty, easy-to-care for hybrids these days that I know you could have some success even if you don't have a green thumb! Thanks for linking up!
