My neighbor's garden




One of our neighbors has this massive garden and it is alive with spring color and blossoms.
As you can see, it is on quite a steep hill and I really don't know how they can keep their balance while working in it, but we in the 'hood' certainly reap the rewards of their hard work.




 This is a summer cottage only, (they have no insulation or heat in the house,) so they haven't been down yet overnight or done any of the spring cleanup we all do in our year round homes.


The red tulips are so classic.




The garden is full of last years stalks and leaves, which in my mind makes it more interesting!




 Forget-me-nots bring back memories of the farm where I grew up. My mother had them growing as if wild at the lawn's edges. Their soft blue shade somehow brings to mind old linen?




Masses of daffodils with bright, yellow and white blooms nodding in the breeze always make me smile.




A little bug somewhere has enjoyed the petal.




Normally Forsythia this huge are only seen in parks and I can look at this one everyday!




All of these photos were again shot and loaded directly from my Nikon P90 and then posted without alteration of any kind.

OMG! I just clicked on the ad for river monsters on your blog and then on Pirrhana Prank! That was a rush!

Lovely photos, by the way!

I also like the cluttered natural look of their garden. Our forsythia and daffodils are all gone away already, so it's lovely to see these pictures.

WHAT a GARDEN! Even my teenage son looked over my shoulder and said, "That's a pretty picture!" You captured it well. Lovely grade to the slope and very dramatic. :)

I love how it all looks like it just grew randomly - so peaceful. And that forsythia is amazing! I've never seen one even half that size!
