This week, my task (well one of them) is to tame the garden.


  1. But I love your wild garden, Ginny. And that strawberry bed is beautiful! We lost ours last year to a sea of weeds and it is all gone now.

  2. It is way too pretty to tame and the children love rambling about around it and I bet you do as well!

  3. FAIRY Garden! And there are fairies in it too! I am so in love.

  4. Oh, but it is so wild at heart, isn’t it. . . .

  5. We’ve been doing the same thing! Happy Gardening!

  6. Just starting a garden in our new abode and so excited about it, and hubby’s new passion of a rock garden and building me garden boxes as you have in yours. What a beautiful time of year spring is!!

    I love the look of your wild garden Ginny! No apologies to tame it my dear. And what a great shot of littlest in his stripes to match the garden plot. Love it!

  7. beautiful! did you seed through the years or is it all growing wild on its own? either way it’s gorgeous!

  8. Christy says:

    Stunningly beautiful…

  9. I love all your flowers, no need to tame, it is just perfect!

  10. Beautiful just as is!

  11. MotherOwl says:

    I like ALL the flowers in your garden. That Job-flower is a perfect match. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. It’s so lovely! Thank you for sharing your pictures !

  13. I did the same thing a couple of weeks ago! I’ve been slow to start my garden this year…in fact, I still have 2 beds to fill.
    Can’t wait to see your progress though. I have no doubt that you’ll leave me feeling inspired to get a move on in my own garden! Good luck to ya!

  14. Wild is awfully beautiful…..
    What did you use along the fences??

  15. So pretty! Beauty in the wild-ness.

    You do have your work cut out for yourself Ginny. I have let the honeysuckle go wild this year and I am so glad that I did – it smells incredible! Don’t strain yourself like I have and given myself a hernia. I have lasted 59 years without one until now. It’s you know what getting old. I would have to leave the Bachelor Buttons though.

  17. I like all the pictures (especially the ones of your girls scaling the arbor(?).. Climbers after my own heart); however, by the way you separated the photos, I thought you had **MANY** snake pictures.. I was somewhat disappointed, so maybe it would be less confusing if you choose a different punctuation mark to delineate your days? ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks, as always, for sharing your life with the world wide web family..
    Soli Deo Gloria

  18. Holy smokes, is that gorgeous. Love the wildflowers and beautiful garden, and those lucky children who get to spend time outdoors.

  19. I bought a packet of bachelor buttons. Now for sure I will plant them. You do have your work cut out for you but (and) at least you know the ground is fertile!! Have a good time in the garden.

  20. oh my goodness, your garden is a fairyland! that is how i want mine to look. LOL

  21. I can’t believe it! Looks like high summer in ontario.

  22. Sarah o says:

    So beautiful!!!

  23. That’s the most beautiful untamed garden ever. Love it.

  24. The flowers are lovely! We woke up to snow here this morning. ๐Ÿ™ I hope the weeds pull out easily for you!

  25. The clover with your bees is stunning! Obviously the girls discovered that the view from up high is always better!! Have great days in your garden with the children and the warm sun & cool earth!! Love your photos.

  26. It’s like a magical fairy garden! Love those bachelor’s buttons.

  27. it is so beautiful! it must make your whole yard smell divine! blessings
