Retro Garden Pictures.


I had so much fun playing around with these pictures...

Discover PicMonkey, it's free ..or use the different effects on Picasa...

let your imagination run free....

I imagined that I was looking through a photo album from when this house was new.....

and that would be the 1930's



mountain mint


red crepe myrtle

garden gate

abelia - original to this homeplace

liriope from my Grandmother's homeplace

garlic chives

I really try to do a bit of research when adding new plants to my landscape..I want to stay true to the era of this house..there are a lot of original plants already in the landscape and that makes me very happy..

I just wish that privet was not one of them.  we have been trying to get rid of it for 9 years..and it keeps coming back with a vengeance...this years abundant rainfall has caused us to have a quite a crop of privet at the edge of the woods and bermuda grass in the flower beds..

I am waiting for cooler weather to rejuvenate me and help me want to get back 'out there'..

but for now, the library is my friend..
I am way behind on reading....and I have a lot of sewing I plan to do..

all inside

thank you for stopping by today

I hope to see you again soon



  1. I'm off to find out what "privet" is...

    Your playing with the photos turned out so lovely and artsy!

  2. Wow I really love your pictures. I love especially red crepe myrtle and the gardenia their colors are totally attractive...
