Every year SIL Quincey workes at his garden. New things get added and old plants pulled out, but only if it looks like they'll never recover from the winter cold.
This year is no exception. Lloyd and I were over visiting the family the other day and Q proudly showed us around the garden.
|This hanging basket contains begonias I think. Quincey knows what flowers he likes but he doesn't bother himself with their names.|
|There are two beautiful baskets of these hanging from the porch roof overhang by the front door.|
|Almost directly under the hanging plants, and a little bit forward, is a large bunch of these lovely peonies. They come back every year and require little or no effort on the part of the gardener.|
|They are in all stages of growth right now, from bud to full bloom.|
|These pretty little flowers (petunias?) have a spot in his rockery by a little stream Q created.|
|These colorful little ones share part of the rockery and stream.|
|The little trickle of a stream falls from the gap in the rocks and tumbles over the rocky bed.|
|He has a couple of these bubbling rocks sround the yard. The garden hoses usually aren't evident but Q had been working on the garden before we got there and hadn't finished clearing up.|
|And another view of the rock garden.|
