As often happens, life took us in different directions and we sort of lost touch for many years. We now live in the same city again, but rarely seem to cross paths. Until a few weeks ago when I got an email from her. She wrote to tell me how much she enjoys reading my Blog. How the heck did she find my blog, I wondered... So we planned a get-together and since we share a love of gardening she promised me a Garden Tour. (She didn't have to ask me twice! lol) We live only about 10 minutes drive apart so I drove up to
her home and we headed out with her two energetic dogs for a walk along the river. It was a beautiful morning - sunny blue skies and not yet too hot. We chatted and got caught up on our families and what all our siblings and children are doing. She is a biologist and field expert so she was identifying wildflowers and plants for me as I took photos. (you'll see some of those on Wildflower Wednesday.)
We saw boblinks and two juvenile eagles (see previous post for those photos), but no deer as she had the previous morning.
After returning to her home for a cold drink, she took me on a tour of her extensive gardens. As well as several good sized vegetable plots and strawberries, raspberries, grapes, currants, kiwi, and apples, she also has numerous perennial beds and an herb garden. Well, you know that my camera was busily a-clickin'... I'm sharing a few of my favourite shots with you. Thanks Debby, it was great fun, and we'll do it again real soon...
Take a walk in the garden of life and enjoy the beauty of it all...
