All in the Family

My mom has been busily working in her garden and wanted me to take some pictures of her hard work.

My mom and I have totally different gardens.  If  she were to have a blog it would be called The Immaculate Gardener or The Perfect Garden. 

 My garden is more of a “cottage” style garden if I had to label it.  It has sprawling tomato plants and cucumber plants and trellises with vines or vegetables scrambling up them.  Nothing ever seems to stay within the confines of their pot or planter and I’m okay with that.  If  leaves find their way into the garden, they are raked into the compost bed. 

My mom, however, does not tolerate leaves messing up her beautiful garden.  She is meticulous with her secateurs and frets when mother nature (sometimes in the form of squirrels) spits acorns onto her lawn.

I wish I could be more of a perfectionist, but I guess I will have to leave that to the professionals.  Like my mom.   Welcome to Mary’s garden.
