Gardens Thrive With Sweat & Rain & Sun
Rhododendrons thrive here on Cedar Pond.
Snapdragons are doing well in our gardens and our flowerboxes.
Pots of hostas, hens & chicks, phlox, snapdragons , and Campion are sitting next to our garage awaiting planting in other parts of the gardens.
Flower box under the kiwi arbor between the chairs. Snapdragons, lobelia, and a red geranium.
All of the gardens on Cedar Pond thrive because my husband has worked hard to prepare the soil they are planted in. He has used the manure of many generations of our chickens, goats, & sheep composted and tended to produce rich soil . Rich soil that was hard clay in places and in other places rocky & barren when we first moved here years ago. Rich soil produced with the sweat of hard work . Hard work that reaps it's harvest after the abundant rains we enjoy give way to sunny summer days . Yes, gardens thrive with the sweat of hard work , abundant rain, and glorious sunshine.
