"There can be no other occupation like
Gardening in which,
if you were to creep up
behind someone at their work,
You would find them

The Children's Garden
This is where you can find me this weekend.
And yes, I'll be smiling!

If you pinch new shoots at the growing points, you'll encourage branching, which produces more growth for flowering.


  1. I KNOW you will be smiling working in your children's garden... especially if you are working with a grandbaby! =)

  2. Happy Gardening.... and have a wonderful weekend :)

  3. Oh, that last picture is amazing!

  4. It's 86 degrees here, but the humidity is 90%. I've done all the gardening I can stand. Everything looks so pretty and the lilies are starting to bloom. Your pictures are so pretty!

  5. Ohhh, how I would love to join you in your beautiful garden! I love the children's garden, I bet Lulu and Levi love it. You need to come to Ohio and teach me how to grow those beautiful roses! I saw the ones you took to Lulu last week and wished I had the ability to smell them through the computer!

  6. Hi Chris, I sent you an answer on e-mail but did want to visit your blog. I love the name. Some beautiful flowers for sure. Blessings

  7. What a wonderful spot for you and your sweet grandkids!
    My grandson and I did a bit of gardening ourselves this afternoon. But we had to work in the garage because it's been pouring cats and dogs all day!
    Your yard looks so nicely manicured and weed free! I've got a lot of work to do! :)
    Beautiful flower pics!

  8. We have beautiful gardens all around our home and pool that I lovingly enjoy but have no part in their planting or weeding. However, when anyone compliments them, instead of confessing that Jim does it all, I just say thank you. Looking forward to seeing more of your gardens . . .

  9. I love this quote, so true so true!

    I did some gardening on Thursday and was smiling the whole time! Hopefully I'll finish up planting my flowers this evening when it's not so hot.

    Have fun gardening, and smiling!
