A Garden Contest – Pictures of my Garden

A little while back, I promised some of my blogging buddies that I would upload some recent pictures of my garden. I hope you enjoy the view (s).

Today’s word of the Day is Garden, so I thought I would repost this:



This picture above shows some very moody looking clouds coming my way. You can also see the magnolia in flower, and my efforts to try to re-establish the lawn after my ravenous chickens had rather decimated it.

I think this picture makes a good entry for CalmKate’s challenge, see link below:

Friday Fun – clouds


I was thinking rather carefully

whether I should apply to enter,

a garden contest, locally,

at the community centre.

Would It stand a chance of winning?

would I be laughed at to the exit?

after all the grass is thinning,

I sent my chickens to inspect it.

It would make my worries double,

instead, I’ll sit and think this through,

Rather than take on all that trouble.

My chickens think so too.


I hope you enjoyed my poem, and this journey through my garden.

Happy Sunday ๐Ÿ™‚

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

  1. Your plants look happy and healthy. I love seeing lemons growing on your tree, would love to smell lemon blossoms โค What is that purplish viney looking plant 2 pics up from the chickens?? The tulip combination is so pretty. Loving your tall fences around the garden to make it nice and private. Thank you for sharing your special place with us ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Awww… I’m sorry for your loss.โ˜น We love our animal friends no matter what species they are. I’m glad it was old age and not an attack from a predator. She had a happy life in a lovely garden with a kind human.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’Œ
