in my sisters garden…


I apologize for not be around and posting here on my blog, but sometimes life does not give you the time you need to do as you wish.

I wanted to treat you all to some of the images I took in my sister’s glorious garden.

Not only does my sister have a truly stunning garden, but also has some of the most interesting collection of unusual plants and garden statuary that I have ever seen.

She works very hard in her garden each day and it is progressing beautifully.
She works her magic and adds more of her artistic combinations of perennials, annuals, herbs and veggies into a stunning and colorful pallet of restful perfection.

Wait until you see her pond...it will be photo ready soon.

Each photographic foray in to her garden yields many treasured images that I hope to make into a book for her at the end of the gardening season.

I hope that you enjoy these images.
Yes, this is truly a magical place...

Indeed, a beautiful garden; full of items, proofs of creativity and imagination!

I have also been absent from blogging for a while; just made a late tour of your market places!

Beautiful! Great photos that capture the essence of the garden.

I love the fun statues. I bet you could lose yourself in that place. :)

Oh, I love her garden images. These are beautiful, Terrie! I always think people who intersperse little garden statues and color are so creative. Sounds like a really lovely spot!

So beautiful, my darling, it looks like a magical place, inhabited by many happy and productive elfin spirits ... I thoroughly enjoyed this visit, captured with your own brand of magical photography. Please bring us more ! :)

Yes, we are missing you and all of your enchanting posts which are as nourishing to the mind and eyes as they are to the soul...but there is a time and a season for everything.... bien sûr.

Be well and take good care

Hugs and bisous

Salut chere Dedene...I am so glad that I could share this with you.

Merci beaucoup to you all for your wonderful comments on the images from my sister's garden...
There are many, many more to come, as there are many more unusual outdoor rooms in my sister's beautiful garden.

I can't wait to introduce you to the Lion Garden, the herb garden, the veggie garden, the white garden, the pond and so many more beautiful vignettes of her collected statuary and plantings...

These are so beautiful--it is wonderful that you have such a lovely spot to photograph. I particularly like the hydrangeas and the white spiky one. While in Chicago last summer I saw these same flowers in the Art Institute garden and was completely taken in by their beauty. We miss your posts but real life takes precedent.

What wonderful pictures! I love all the little figures sprinkled throughout the garden. Like little bursts of magic sprinkled everywhere.
