Judy's Garden    
  Down the Garden Path
     
  As I sit on the back porch having morning tea, the shady backyard beckons me.
  I enter though the Arbor
New Dawn Rose planted to scale the arbor (someday).
  Down the woodland path...

Along the trail, a swing offers a respite from the baking summer sun.
    
  I continue to the shade garden
  "Aside from the Garden of Eden, man's greatest temptation took
place when he first received his seed catalogue." 
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
 
  Hosta, Ferns, Astilbe, Caladium, Japanese Forest Grass, Celandine Poppy,
Leopard Plant, Hardy Begonia, Wild Gingers, Toad Lily ....

Fragrant Bouquet Hosta

 

        My journey then takes me back to the porch borders.

THEN TO THE FRONT -- In my small amount of dappled sun each new day comes bearing its gift - new daylilies in bloom.  The various varieties start blooming in sequence and each morning I go out with eager anticipation.

Judy's garden, at this location, has evolved over the past 7 years. Many collected hostas and daylilies have felt like gypsies. They have moved from state-to-state over the years.

WE COME FROM THE EARTH, WE RETURN TO THE EARTH, AND IN BETWEEN WE GARDEN.
