Tuesday Display Chain "Mary Mary How Dose Your Garden grow?"

This Tuesday Display Chain I must say grabs my heart. Gardening is near & dear to my heart at this time of year. The ideas come faster than I can make them happen. How dose my garden grow? Well I invite you on this stroll of my 16 year journey to see for yourself. The garden sleeps in the cold under blankets of white magic that falls from the heavens above.
As God shines his bright yellow sunshine down the rays warm the soil & the white magic melts away & the life begins to be reborn in the gardens as my heart stirs with my garden passion & I itch to get the warm soil in my hands once again. Flats are planted with seeds & kept in the mini greenhouse tended with love. The clean up begins in the rock beds & the pond is drained cleaned & refilled with fresh well water for the golden glins that swim under the water fountain.
Expanding the gardens continues with each passing year. Trips to the mountain for rocks to build more beds. This years beds will mainly be for veggies & herbs. The lower field is being planted with fruit trees. Four apple trees have been planted & some peach await. With high hopes & prayers of planting pear plum & cherry trees in the what will be the homestead orchard.
Most plants I have planted come up each year so while adding more I can see the show begin in all its glory. What beauty God has given us is amazing.
There oh so many more I could show you but I will wait for this years blooms to open & share with you on your return visits to the homestead gardens for another stroll. By then I hope to have all the creature houses moved & we can stop by to visit them as we stroll among the garden expansion. Thank you Misi for hosting the Tuesday Display Chains. I have enjoyed joining in from time to time & seeing all the wonderful chain posts by other amazing bloggers. htp://1890gablehousemusings.blogspot.com visit to see more. Blessings Til Next Time!
