~ Before & After ~

Rosen looking on...wanting to be a part if all  the digging?


We are still happily working on our gardens and yard...


BEFORE:  (after some cleaning and serious weeding).
 
 
 
 
 
AFTER:  (still needing to place irrigation drainage, etc...)
Softening up a corning with some pansies.



Herb Garden...



Curled Parsley and Italian Parsley


Tea Anyone?


Lemon Balm, Peppermint, Chocolate Mint....or Chamomile?
All this thought and work was completed by my three children...They have been hard at work slowly transforming our landscape into fun and luscious gardens.  Even though this is a family project...today I watched, and did a little sweeping...Made lunches...Gave my opinion...Daddy was working on some plumbing...
It was a very productive and lovely day...our garden is finally taking shape.
Speaking of Gardens...Isn't this a lovely family garden story

  1. Yes, it is a lovely garden story... what a privilege to be able to commemorate her mom's passing on with a beautiful flower named after Saint Joseph, who had the privilege of dying with Jesus and our Blessed Mother by his side.

    And hey, congratulations to your children! What a marvelous project. Nothing like plants and pets to teach them stewardship of God's creation.

    I really enjoyed this post. Thanks!
