    MickeyLee and I talked about who would start this thread and decided I would. It is simple post a photo of your garden. This is after all the first day of Spring so it will be nice to see some garden photos. Mine is of my pond last summer. This thread is also going to help us think of new plants we might want to add into our garden as well. On behalf of MickeyLee and myself we thank you for interacting.

    I don't know how I didn't see this before! I LOVE gardening! In fact, my spring bulbs have already started blooming, and soon I'll have some peach blossoms.

    Mind you, I live in an apartment, so all of my gardening is done in large pots on the balcony.

    joyboytoy79, I love your Crocus'! I do alot of stuff in pots mint~ALWAYS! or else it takes over my flower bed. LOL. My spring bulbs are in full bloom as well. Crocus, Daffodil, Tulip hyacenth (sp?) I'm so ready to start planting other stuff now. I already bought Pansy, Lobelia and a Meadow Sage. I have about 50 packets of seeds I get to start in about a month and I can not wait! YAY!


    nudeyorker, dose it make you happy? Because with gardening if the owner is happy with it that is all that matters. I'm a total plant whore so I have to have a bunch of plants every year.

    I miss having a garden, in terms of plants I have to look for anything that is not toxic for my dog... who will eat anything! I live for the window box's spring, summer and fall!

    I love planting in my friends moms window box’s. I like to put White Supertunias (sp?) And Japanese Blood Grass in them. Her mom likes that combo as well so it works out for the both of us. LOL.

    Bird,

    I grow mint too... and rosemary, peaches (as mentioned) strawberries, blackberries, black raspberries, golden raspberries, an errant red raspberry, oregano, basil, tomatoes, poppies, dianthus, columbine, sweet peas, morning glories, runner beans, summer squash, chives, sedum... i'm sure there are others i'm missing. I pretty much grow whatever i can find room for, and i'm pretty creative when it comes to finding room :biggrin1:. I'll post more pictures as more things bloom/grow.

    Nude:

    I like your garden! I especially like the snowy trees in the background. Very pretty!

    Here are some photos of some plants from my house. The first one is a orchid and the second is a red ginger.

    I bought a house recently and and it's currently under renovation, but one of the selling points for me is that there is Night Blooming Jasmine around the perimeter of the house where the bedrooms are located. I'll post pictures the next time I am there!

    Thank you. I like yours better, I'm looking forward to the day when there is no such thing as snow and I can get my hands dirty again in a garden.

    Well, it's only a 4 hour trip to DC via Acela. I have plenty of gardening work you could do! I'm hoping to rent a plot soon, too. That will require massive amounts of help.

    OK maybe we can work out a trade agreement, my new house has a lot of work to be done, but there is a clothing optional pool and it's in Kalani Iki Estates in Honolulu! It's only a twelve and a half hour flight.

    Certainly! I'll buy you a train ticket, if you'll buy Jason and I plane tickets. Sounds perfectly fair to me :biggrin1:
