Flora and Fauna

Once upon a time, I had some lovely gardens around here. Some were here when we came and others I planted. There was always an abundance of day lilies and the vegetable garden was already sectioned off. It seemed fitting as many a moon ago, this was a gardening estate with greenhouses and terraced gardens running down to the river. The old root cellar (just like Norman's sans Mom ;) still has a rustic old kitchen piece and piping for the greenhouses.
I had a wonderful mentor as well. My neighbor Nick was an old world Italian gardner with huge fabulous plots of everything imaginable. His wealth of knowledge and desire to share was extraordinary.
Gardens and dogs? What was I thinking? Fencing be damned!
All those raised beds and soft tilled earth was just to tempting.
As each dog took their toll on the yard, Ive finally given up. Im pretty content to grow weeds in the upper yard just being green! Now if only I could get a goat to do the mowing!
A few remnants remain mostly outside the main fencing and decided to snap off a few shots of the present blooms......only the very hardy survive!
