“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow”

Such fun working in the garden

Plant our own flowers, such bargain

Watering, deadheading and more

Being outside part of the chore that’s for certain

Garden changes every season

Soothes and calms our soul, a reason

To see all beautiful flowers

Such blessing to know they are ours for all seasons*

The garden of love is green without limit and yields many fruits other than sorrow or joy. Love is beyond either condition: without spring, without autumn, it is always fresh. Rumi

Him Indoors trimmed our Thuja, it’s getting too tall. 

Here are more photos of our flowers in the garden. 

Kew Gardens is a botanical garden in southwest London that houses the “largest and most diverse botanical and mycological collections in the world”. Founded in 1840, from the exotic garden at Kew Park in Middlesex, England,  its living collections include more than 30,000 different kinds of plants, while the herbarium, which is one of the largest in the world, has over seven million preserved plant specimens. The library contains more than 750,000 volumes, and the illustrations collection contains more than 175,000 prints and drawings of plants. It is one of London’s top tourist attractions. (Wikipedia)

The Gardens by the Bay in Singapore. It’s a cool-moist conservatory, amidst orchids, pitcher plants and ferns from the Tropical Montane region. There’s the world’s tallest indoor waterfall at 35 meters and we descend through the surreal mist-filled Cloud Walk and Treetop Walk.

And here in Munich, we have the English Garden

    I especially like that first quote from Audrey Hepburn, and all your lovely photos. So interesting to see that many unusual or unfamiliar flowers and plants as well as the ones I do recognize. I’d love to visit Kew Gardens someday. Visiting from WQ today.

    As we say about people, unlike me, you have an amazing green thumb and can grow anything anywhere. I particularly loved your petunias and salvia (I hope I got that right.). Lots of color and joy. I went to Kew Gardens in England. What wonderful gardens you’ve been able to visit. If you ever get a chance, visit Butchart Gardens in Canada.
