My husband named this garden for my mother. It’s my favorite garden and I promised to tend it.
But my injuries made gardening a huge challenge and Mama’s Garden became a little jungle.
For the last few years, it’s looked a bit wild, especially from the outside.
But it’s always a treasure-trove on the inside.
My Good Man weeded the pathway for me this Spring – thank you, thank you, Kind Sir!!
Suddenly, you could see the path and even the plants stood out more.
That purple flower on the left below is woodland phlox. Farther below, in the next picture, is Solomon’s seal, blooming its small white bells.
Yes, even Irises bloom here.
Ferns, hydrangea, Jack-in-the-pulpit, May apple,dogwood, ligularia, wild phlox, woodland phlox, astilbe, hosta — and many more plants grow together here. Including two clematis vines.
The double clematis flourishes on the entrance arbor. It will cover that side of the arbor very soon.
The dogwood blooms above all that. It has never looked better.
Same goes for the purple lilac.
Way to go, Mama’s Garden! Thank you for your thriving and lovely ways.
Dedicated to my mother.
With thanks to my husband for all his work in our garden.
