… My garden would look like this — and have a full-time gardener to tend it!

In mine too.
With a couple gardeners to help, right?
Gorgeous gardens. A very nice dream!
Yes. A girl can dream….
LOL. Yes, please!
I remember this lovely post, and still enjoy reading it, Cynthia. Gardens are a labor of love, and so hard to keep up with at this time of year! 🙂
That’s for sure! I mainly observe mine through a window!
I well remember that beauty you shared! It stuck with me!
It is a memorable garden, for sure. Glad you liked it.
Gardening is my passion, but it sure would be nice to have a “under gardener” to work with me. I haven’t convinced my husband to take the job.
What about bribery and coercion? These are supposed to work.
Yes, definitely a dream garden!
It’s even nicer seen up close.
Isn’t it a major wow?
It certainly is!
Beautiful garden. For me the dream would be to have a full time cleaner for the house, a lottery win so I didn’t have to work and the I’d spend all day gardening!
I hear you, sister.
Oh so beautiful. I too have my dream garden. 🌼💮🌹🌿🌺🌳
What would it be like, Betty?
Where to begin? Wildflowers, a rock garden, a dry river bed that became a creek when it rained, a little bridge crossing this creek. Ferns and willows, birch trees along one side, lots of Japanese maples of all sizes, colors and shapes, little evergreens, more rocks (large ones here and there, and smaller ones lining my path…. ah, I could go on and on. And close to the house all kinds of annuals blooming up a storm, and lavender and mint to attract the bees, and bird baths, and….. Ah what fun to think about! Thanks for asking the question, Cynthia. 🙂
I love it!! I can see it in my mind’s eye – great description.
Thank you. It truly is my dream garden. And that was only the beginning. 😁
It’s definitely a beautiful garden, but I’m guessing that it’s also a lot of work keeping it that way.
That’s for sure. Luckily, Mary loves the work.
How are you doing these days, Cynthia? I hope you’re well. Thinking of you,
I’ve delayed answering this, Jeanne. Rough winter and spring, but still counting my blessings (and they are significant), and still remembering to smile — even if I have to force it sometimes! I remember thinking how stupid it was to force oneself to smile, but I think it really does help, and definitely better than tears!
Tu as de très beaux rêves Cynthia 😉
Merci beaucoup, Christiane.
Wonderful. Worth a second visit. Maybe you’d need more than one gardener 🙂
Yes! You and Miss Jackie up for the job(s)?
In your dreams 🙂
It’s beautiful! I remember this garden and would love to visit it for real.
I’m sure if you make it to Toronto, I can arrange it!
Thank-you, Cynthia. The temptation…..!
I feel peaceful just seeing the pics! This is my dream garden this AM: http://cdn.gardenloversclub.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Keukenhof_1.jpg
Of course, it changes daily:).
Isn’t the Keukenhof a remarkable place? I wish I’d visited it in earlier years.
I’ve never done so!On my list:).
Ahh to have that talent would be Heavenly!
Such a beautiful garden – I’m glad to revisit it with you, Cynthia. I have no garden, but when we go for an early morning walk in the park, before the crowds descend, I feel very blessed. This year everything is amazingly green, the birds fly, hop, run or swim according to their nature, there are hares and chipmunks as well as the usual squirrels and the occasional raccoon and on damp mornings we have to tread carefully to avoid the snails. We have seen deer a few times, hiding in the greenery. The lake is only steps away. It is a beautiful place. I might dream of beautiful gardens, but this place suits me very well.
Thanks for this lovely reply Margaret. Good to hear from you.
