And beautiful pink rose for you!

Lovely! We are in the process of trying to do a cottage garden. We live on the side of a mountain and the beds will pose a problem. I hope my husband can "figure it out" because I would love to have the fresh veges and flowers to enjoy! Love your beautiful blog...

Good morning Donna,
Your garden looks so healthy. How wonderful to step out your door and be greeted by so much goodness. I just planted my first raised bed veggie garden. Do you mind if I ask whether you have something for your cucumbers to grow on (like a trellis). I have planted a row of cucumbers and need fo find something to use for that purpose. Any suggestions?


Have a great day.

Thanks for that rose Donna, you are so thoughtful. : ) Love your garden! What a great idea to put your mint in a container, we had to pull out yards and yards of it when it took over our flowerbeds last year! The pugs were smelling very minty.
xxxxooo

Our lettuce, radishes and peas are doing wonderful too! You were smart to plant your mint in a container. I made the mistake of planting it in the ground a couple of years ago and I have been pulling it out ever since!
Hugs,
Penny

Your garden is so healthy and lovely, Donna! I struggle every Spring to get some vegies to grow. Each year they do a bit better. :) I have tomato plants waiting to be settled in a spot. Must do that soon. What a beautiful rose!

Donna, just lovely! I think it is great you have a veggie garden! When we get settled I'm going to start one or I'll just wait until next year to start one.

It all looks wonderful. I wish we could grow a garden.

Some mint tea sounds so refreshing.

Hi Donna...I am envious of your garden....I can't even grow things in a pot on my deck let alone in the ground...I would love to have a salad garden.....or just one pot with some Rosemary....

Joy said...

Donna, is the garden sign something your husband made or did you purchase it? Your garden looks very healthy and tidy. My husband loves to garden(veggies). I do flowers.

Your gardens look so fresh and green. I want to reach in and cut a fresh salad from your bed of lettuce. Just beautiful and yummy!

What a nice garden you have Donna! We are going to plant our tomatoes this weekend as I can finally trust that we won't have any frost. My perennial herbs are already growing.

What a luscious looking garden, Donna! Your artist talent extends far beyond the painted canvas.
