SWEET HOME AND GARDEN CHICAGO
Impressive. I've got a bout a dozen houseplants spending their summer outside including a couple trees.A Martha Washington scented geranium? What did Martha Washington smell like I wonder?
I love the mix of colors and the lattice work. The bench under the arbor seems like it would be a wonderful place to sit once the honeysuckle grows over.
She probably smelled like rose water, Jim. But how nice to have a geranium named after you, eh ?
Thanks, PP, I agree. The honeysuckle has a very sweet fragrance.
Your daughter has a lovely garden started. I'll bet mom has helped. I also summer my house plants by putting them outside in a lightly shaded area where I can keep an eye on them. They seem to really appreciate the fresh air and light.
Carolyn, you must be delighted your daughter is a 'chip off the old block'. My son's garden resembles mine. I am honored that both he and his wife love designing their garden (it's a great spot to share) and both have developed great eyes. Although only 5 & 6, my grandboys think Mimi's garden (and my mac & cheese) is paradise! I have so enjoyed your sharing post.
Thanks, Joey. I'm sure your mac'n'cheese is heavenly.Glad to hear your grandboys love your garden. I am awaiting my first grandchild this Fall and so I'm filled with great anticipation.
Hi Beckie,Thanks. I didn't actually help with any of the design or plantings but I'm pleased to think that I was an influence : )
So impressive. This is so inspiring.. Kayce
What a lovely place your daughter has, Carolyn. And I love the look of the collie...never saw one like that before. Jojo and Lance get along okay, I trust?
Thanks, Jodi. The smooth coat collie was made popular by Queen Victoria and is a very intelligent and lovable dog.Collies are so sweet and so Lance and his brother Joker ( my daughter has 2 smoothies ) treat Jojo very well.
How gratifying to have a child love what you love, and do what you do! I have a few budding gardeners, too. I'll have to keep my eyes open for that beautiful clematis.
Yes, she's definitely a chip off the old block. You must be very proud of her. Love the Roguchi.
She IS a chip off the old block. So glad you can share gardening with her. Maybe I'll get to with my kids sometime too.~~Dee
