My Country Gardens

This is a busy time of year! I forget how 
much work it is in the spring.
I love it though, especially if we have 

I generally browse my garden photos in the 
beginning of the planting season. 
Since I like to look at other's too,  
I decided to share a few with you!
 My garden shed. Dale built it as a Turkey house. 
We used it once for turkeys...that was enough for us!
 The fence is from the side of a corn crib that 
Dale's mom tore down from their old farm.
 An angel in the bee balm. :)
 My garden in 2008
 This is a potato planter nestled in the wild flower garden.

 This was taken at my friend Becky's house. 
I LOVE black-eyed Susans, old birdhouses and milk cans!
 It may become obvious that this is a favorite color combo.
My friends Matt and Penny made this birdhouse stake. 
 A birdhouse on a spindle hiding in the Susans...made by us.
The chicken coop...I started it new in 2009. 
Where the chickens used to run, so things grew VERY well!!
 In the background, you can see the sign for Bittersweet Farm.

 My garden in 2009

 Pink, blue, white and yellow mingled w/ green. Love it!

 South-facing warm spot on chilly days....The shop blocks
the wind so we like to sit here in the evenings.

 A view from behind the garden shed, looking toward the barn.

 This is the back side of the gift shop.  :)
 My Mother's Day bench from Picket Fence Gals. 
My favorite summer place to sit ...and have a mocha frapp. 
 I like to stop and read my mail 
here on the way into the house. 
If you have a post with garden photos, 
share your link with me in the comment box. 
I would love to see your gardens!!!
It would be fun to have a post with several links 
so they are accessible through one click. 
If I get enough, 
I will put them on here!
Click Here for another garden!

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

for giving to our liberty!

open four-days a week:

  1. Kathy,
    I am a follower of your blog. I love your country garden pictures. I too love old implements and lots of flowers. I live on a farm in ohio and we have had lots of rain. Most of my flowers haven't bloomed yet. I have some photos I took this week of my home and yard on my blog right now.
    My garden implements were original, which I liked, but I came home one day and my hubs had painted all of them red and white. I guess he needed to use all his leftover tractor paint.
    He normally doesn't do this sort of thing, he leaves the decorating to me. But I guess he thought he would surprise me. Surprised I was!
    But I now have to laugh and give him credit for trying. So my outside theme will be Americana. What else would I do with red and white?
    Hop on over to my blog and check it out.
    Country at heart

  2. Kathy, Your photos are just wonderful, so colorful. It makes me just want to take a stroll at your place. You have truly been blessed to live in such a wonderful place. I hope you post more in the days to come.

  3. I love your post Kathy...always so fun taking a trip through some one elses gardens and yards. I must say you are among the most serene and prettiest ones. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for visiting my blog too - I'm hoping this comment reaches you. I'm slowly working through all the kinks in Blogger. Hoping that THEY will soon fix it all for us.

    Enjoy your weekend.
