my favorite garden show

is the one taking place at any given moment in my own backyard.


be it ever so humble and jumbled, chaotic, disheveled, contrary, exasperating, etc, etc.


That the show blithely carries on while I’m away is always slightly infuriating.
More on a proper show, the 2012 San Francisco Flower & Garden Show, later this week.

  1. Oh what a great sentiment, I love it. Unfortunately we arrived home after nightfall so I was unable to see what happened in my garden over the last 5 days…but I’ll be out there first thing in the morning!

    Ahhh, I feel much the same way, I never seem to get tired of wandering around, seeing what has changed. I find that I always resent even a few days away during the growing season…which makes planning vacations a little harder. I usually like traveling in autumn, as the weather cools down…but it’s such a hard time to leave the garden!

    Loree, glad you’re home safe too. Where to put all those plants?
    Scott, I’m thinking mid summer is a good time to leave, but then travel prices are high and it’s usually too hot. For long trips, I usually opt to travel in fall.

  4. Lovely, especially that first image. I guess it’s not surprising our own gardens please us the most after all the fussing we do over them! I’d love to see some overall shots of your garden, Denise.

    I just love flowers…any flower. I like even dandelions, they’re so pretty. But sunflower is my favorite.
