This challenge is hosted by Terrie from Second Wind Leisure. I've also been loving visiting the blogs of the other participants and being inspired by their interpretations of the theme.
This week Natalie from Natalie the Explorer is hosting. She'll actually be hosting for the next few weeks while Terri takes a break. The theme for this week is in the garden.
I haven't had a garden, in any form for many years. I guess that's not entirely true, for the last few years I've done container gardening during the summers, however, this summer my containers did terrible.We've been so focused on getting our house finished that we haven't done anything with landscaping, and I'm not sure when that will happen.
However, I have thought ahead and when my hubby and I were on Orcas Island a few weeks ago, I took quite a few photos of beautiful flower gardens wherever we went. I've been trying to think ahead to the challenges so I'm not just relying on old photos. Part of my reason for joining challenges was to challenge myself to get my camera out more. That's been easier said than done.
Dahlias are probably my favorite flower because of the variety.
The San Juan Sculpture Garden was such a neat place to visit
Flower in my MIL's front yard. I think it's a type of lily.
One thing I love about gardens is the butterflies, dragonflies and other creatures that visit them. This little guy visited the flowers by our airbnb frequently.
On our trip to Orcas Island, there were a few spots that had beautiful beds of flowers in front of their businesses. I always love those pink ones though I can't remember what they're called. They were a favorite of my moms and remind me of her.
Hollyhocks are always a pretty addition.
This pretty garden was in the front yard of a small church. So pretty.
We visited the San Juan Sculpture Park and there were several beautiful beds there. I thought I taken more photos but I guess not.
I hope to someday have my own flower beds and veggie garden again. We'll see.
