Late Summer in the Garden!

Everyday I visit Aiken House and Garden - a link at my right side of this blog..........It is the most beautiful garden at Carolyn's on Prince Edward Island. You must visit it at

My back yard is small - but big enough for me! Welcome to my garden:
This summer I started a project and since I work a lot I just did a little each week.....I took out a section on each side of my back yard:

From my upstairs window it looks like this:


This is the right side looking out:





Of course in Colorado a Colorado Blue Spruce is required:


A few foxgloves are still coming:

I love your garden. I wish I could do something to mine, perhaps in the fall, it just gets to hot in Florida to work outside much. Love the door, a neat idea.

A very pretty garden and I do think gardens look great from above.

Your garden is really lovely. What a pretty welcome door - I love the climbing flowers and sign. Your Colorado Blue Spruce is quite stately.

Photos are very nice. Great job. I had to close my blog because my template crashed. I tried many options but kept getting error messages.
I am working on a new blog, I will let you know when ready.
