I spent the entire weekend in the garden--no wasting time on the Internet, no picture taking, no nothing but clip, clip, clip. Beloved's help was wonderful--we made so much progress. But who wants to see piles of clippings and a helter-skelter mess of a garden? A good time, perhaps, for a quick look back at 2013.
Les at Tidewater Gardener has ten gorgeous photos in his look back at 2013--as a matter of fact, they are so good you just might want to click straight there and skip this.
I had a random and brief look back at 2013. Brief because I'm tired!
I liked this picture of an ivory wreath on a brown door back in February.
A tiny Senecio flower.
Guys on stilts for Chinese New Year at the Huntington. The place was a madhouse. No more Chinese New Year at the Huntington.
April! April! April!
Lady in blue hat looking at plants at the Garden Blogger's Fling. The Fling was fun. Gardeners are such nice people.
The Fling was held in San Francisco at the end of June.
Experiencing the whole 'Blue Glow' bloom process was fascinating.
2013 made for some memorable stump removals.
Boris eating an orange because it made Natasha jealous even though he didn't like the taste.
The puppies were the life of the party, even when there wasn't a party.
Great year for Dahlias
New camera lens = bird pictures!
Enjoyed other people's gardens, not only my own.
The milkweed was a success. The tomatoes were not.
Killed a few plants...
...helped others to thrive.
All in all, a beautiful year, a very, very fortunate year, for which I am most heartily grateful. Glad I took a moment to look back.
Now, back to clip, clip, clip, rake, rake, rake, cram those green waste bins full.
