Welcome To My Garden…I’m So Excited To Show It To You!
It isn’t often that I sit back (yes, me, sit) to enjoy the beautiful garden that Mike and I love. I did that for 10 minutes today when I sat outside (yes, actually sat) to eat my breakfast. So now its your turn to sit (yes, you, sit) to enjoy the moment.
It isn’t necessary to be eating chocolate, but it does enhance the experience.
You have my permission to go get some as long as you promise to come right back.
The yard is quite large by Chicagoland standards. A half-acre in the city would not happen for us, but a half acre in the ‘burbs. Absolutely. We started out with a yard smaller than that before I knew that I was gardening obsessed. It wasn’t my fault. Really. My husband Mike, and his Mom, Ardie, took me to the Flower and Garden Show at Navy Pier. Its been all up-hill, down-hill, and dirt-filled since then.
I’d like to introduce you to our Dahlias. This one is really as big and beautiful as it looks. Want to learn more about growing these beauties? That’s where Mike comes in. There will soon be entries by Mike (he doesn’t quite know that yet). We’ve got about 100 Dahlias in our yard, blooming beautifully from August through mid-October. It is truly a labor of love for him.
