She and her husband, Jim showed me their favorite place to relax. A deck overlooking the garden. I understand why they love this spot!
Sharen has picked up tables and chairs over the years, mainly at yard sales, and annually hosts a huge family reunion in the midst of this setting. Wonder why the family insists she be the host?!
We meandered around investigating the different growing beds Sharen has developed for vegetables here and flowers there. We first wandered into the vegetable garden. What in the world...I'm now convinced I've grown a tiny, teeny garden.
Just look at this unbelieveable yellow squash plant.
Gorgeous tomatoes, too!
Cabbage, peppers, onions, green beans, cucumbers and more are hangin' out here growing huge, loaded with tantilizing veggies.
Next we made our way through the winding flower beds. So many unexpected surprises...an overturned bucket, a cream separator, an angel. Sharen loves to go to yard sales and she has an eye for garden treasures.
I had an early love of daylilies that had faded for some reason. It' been renewed. If you have lots of sun, daylilies are perfect!
I waited for the sun to shine on this beauty and make it dazzle, but y'know I have a little trouble with patience.
Here she is with her girlfriends.
As these hollyhocks stand guard.
We had a wonderful time walking through and discussing the plants...me unknowingly learning, she unknowingly teaching. She asked me to come back! She explained that it all changes as different plants begin to bloom later in the season. "On a Saturday, I'll make lemonade". I can't wait! Thank you, Sharen.
