~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #147: Gardens ~


Amy invites us to walk through gardens this week. Though I have enjoyed other public gardens, the one I love most is the one I have created over the thirty plus years I’ve lived at my home in Vancouver, WA. Here are a few highlights.

Above, spring blooming shrubs along the front gardens by the street, below a foundation planting of large Rhododendron bloom in the front yard. After the Rhododendrons fade, a glory of mop-head Hydrangea provide interest all summer into fall.

The pond and water stream are a major feature in the back yard. Comfy outdoor furniture is available to lounge in the shade.

But wait! There’s more! However, I am out of time, so if you are interested in seeing more of my gardens, browse through my blog and enjoy.

Wishing everyone safe harbor, as we navigate onward. Please get vaccinated and until then, mask-up and stay safe.🐾
