GARDENING....oh, how I love it! Before we bought this home, we owned a home in town on a city block with a very small yard. We lived there for 13 years, so I soon ran out of space to add new plants to my garden.
When we bought this home on 5 acres of land, I thought...finally I'll get my large country garden!
This home had a small yard when we bought it which was completely surrounded by orange trees. We immediately started clearing trees to make room for the garden. When I say we, I do mean my husband and I cutting down at least 50 orange trees and burning brush over the course of a couple of years. Ugh...it was exhausting!!
So, now I have about 1.5 acres of land to garden. Sounds great, right. Well...now we have to fill all that space with a very small budget and only two people to work the land. It's very difficult at times, and I wish I could finish it overnight to see the vision I have in my head spilled out into my garden. Sometimes I feel like we have more weeds than we do flowers (hee, hee), but my passion for gardening keeps me going.
This is the second spring since moving here that I have had the pleasure of enjoying watching new buds form on all my plants and gradually open to the beautiful blooms they behold within.
Here are some images from my two years young garden.
These wonderful blooms are what keeps me going!! Hope you enjoy! :)
