I love to talk gardening, maybe that is one of the reason I blog and follow sooo many of your blogs too. So I am going to start some “Garden Notes” posts with questions. When I think of one I will answer and then let everyone add their point of view too.
“Is your garden gate open?”
What I mean by that is…. if someone drives past your house and would stop one day, is it welcome for them to see your beds----or would you rather someone not even ask?
I think I know the answer from almost all of us, we blog about our blooms, thus we would love for others to see them…. But do you think that is the case for most gardeners?
Why am I asking? Because I had to drive to Evansville today by myself and looked at several homes and thought…. I would love to see that up close. Or I would like to meet that lady, I bet she is interesting. Or just to say, your home is beautiful.
I want to take master gardener classes in a few years, and then after that I plan to be more active in our regional garden clubs. I know I could do that now, but I am busy enough as it is.
My garden is really only 2 years old and I just have so much more to do. I just run out of time and energy. Plus the girls are still pretty little. They are 7 and 9. I just feel like once I jump in I would like the gardens to be more “done.” Does that make sense?
Okay one last note…. I was VERY EXCITED to finally meet a fellow garden blogger last Friday and to see her LOVELY garden in person….
I met Lisa of Greenbow, and she is lovely. Her private oasis of a shade garden is pure heaven. I did not take my camera, but her blog has tons of pictures.
She is planning on coming my direction soon, and we have another friend I want her to visit too. Isn’t it nice to actually see and enjoy all the beauty and inspiration of another’s creation. I think I might just stop and see that lady after all….
And if she tells me no, that is okay too. I will have gotten close enough the see her island bed up close and be on my way anyway! I just want to know what that purple bush is in the back…lol!
Let me know what you think….
Is your garden public or private?
