I took a walk around the yard last evening and took some pictures. It's amazing what a difference a year can make. This is my Mary's Garden just last year in August. The plants were pretty much just starting out.The pictures below are from last night. Look how everything has grown. The hosta to the right of middle had flower stalks about 6 ft tall. The bright green hostas are doing well in this full sun location. I do have to keep them watered and have a hose nearby, with small sprinkler attached to it. I water it about every two or three days...if we don't have rain.
Here's a tiny birdbath that I found at Merlin's in Oregon. I saw it in the corner of their garden area and another lady was looking at it too. I stood back and hoped she didn't buy it...She put it down and the price was right and home it came...perfect for my Mary's Garden plans growing in my head.
Today looks a bit cloudy out. I have no concrete plans. Joe's 1st wife died on this day and he is on his way to the cemetery.. to put flowers on her grave. We had a homily in Church about taking care of our families graves...to show respect. It was mentioned that visiting graves is for the living...a way to show that you remember. Some in my family aren't buried in a cemetery..so where do I go to remember? I remember some in my garden, some by a fishing lake, some near a forest preserve, and even some in my kitchen. My remembering of a loved one is in my heart and I'll always have it with me... no matter where I'm at..
