The last two glorious days have been spent in the gardens. The pergola is especially beautiful at this time of year. The Silver Lace Vine and Sweet Autumn Clematis have helped to create a secret, peaceful and serene garden room.
We have celebrated many successes in the gardens during this growing season. As it goes in gardening.....we have also faced our struggles this year. Abnormal temperatures and ample rainfall have created a perfect environment for the growth of fungus and disease. The rose garden in particular has required a lot of extra work and still is not as pretty as usual. Other gardens and plants are thriving and are even more beautiful thanks to our weather conditions. It doesn't matter if you are a seasoned gardener or a first-timer....just remember that Mother Nature brings us the winter season for a reason! She wipes our slate clean and gives us a chance to improve upon our mistakes and to do something fantastic on her canvas once again!
