It Just Keeps on Blooming

When we met the woman selling us our new home the day we signed the papers and took the keys to the front door the one thing she kept talking about was the garden.  This magnificent garden that she had spent years and years working on and weeding.  We waited all winter not having a clue what would sprout from the frozen soil as the snow melted. 

Months later we have been surprised over and over again by the amazing perennials that grace our front and back yard.  There have been flowers non-stop since May.  When one bloom dies a different sequence of flowers grows and replaces it.  Right now the garden is as bright and colorful as I have ever seen it.  Actually, its pretty doggone amazing...   

See for yourself!







Its too bad I don't have much time or knowledge to dedicate to these flowers, but hopefully they will continue to sprout with my minimal effort!  At the very least I will enjoy every bit of these awesome blossoms and photograph them.

That is the beauty of buyibng a new place. You get a whole year to not have to do new things outside with the excuse "let's just see what comes in." Looks like you did well in that category!
