Lake Texoma, Cartwright, OK
Spring is now fully upon us so I chose Gardens as today's Blogging from A to Z title.
I remember as a child walking with my Grandmother through a garden planted across the street from our house. There were rose trellises, cold frames set out for early starting, 4 formal paths meeting with a sundial at the center and various flower beds. Perhaps I got my love of touring gardens from this special time I had with "mom-mom".
As we travel we are privileged to visit gardens both formal and informal.
A child's garden setting among Sunflowers at Fort Ticonderoga, New York.
At the Ave Maria Grotto in Cullman, Al.
In the butterfly house at the Botanical Garden in Tucson, AZ
Hodges Garden, a state park in Louisiana
Getting ready to plant a vegetable garden at the Museum of Appalachia in Tennessee.
And finally the fishpond and bridge Leonard built and the flowers I planted at our home from 1992 to 2009 in southern New Jersey.
I do miss the early blooms of the northeast. First the crocus, then the tulip and daffodil display.
Do you have a favorite garden spot?
