Momma’s Garden

I have been doing a ton of work in my garden lately and I am planning to show you some pictures soon once I get around to taking them. For now, I would like to share some photos of my mom’s lovely garden in White Rock, British Columbia, Canada.

My mom has been doing a ton of gardening this Spring and her hard work is paying off. Although all the plants and flowers won’t be in full bloom until midsummer I still think it looks great now.

Here are some of the flowers in front of the house. Lilies and hostas are starting to pop up along with tulips and flowering shrubs.

momgarden5This is a peach tree. The way is it pruned is called espalier. It is designed to grow flat against a wall or fence. In this case it is against the side of the house. The tree will produce yummy peaches by midsummer.

I hope my Mom’s garden will give you some inspiration for your own garden this year. She has lots of great ideas.

Hope you all have a great weekend. It’s my Birthday tomorrow. The big 3-0 this year. (How did that happen??!!) I will be off for a little birthday adventure. See ya next week!
