How does your gardens grow? Check out my MOM's WOWZA!~

Genes are  a funny thing. Sometimes you get passed down some good traits, sometimes NOT. 
 In my case I have so many wonderful traits of my Mom's..(toot toot) 
However, gardening was not ONE of them.  
My Grandmother was a wonderful gardener as well.  Let me share how my Mom's gardens grow.  I can't wait to see them in a few weeks.
My Mom and step Dad downsized to a town house around 5 years ago. Their property out in the Country was sprawling with Gardens....My Mom has made her little town house pretty sprawling too. This is leading to the back deck area.

My hostas NEVER looked like this.

You see those little garden peeps? She painted them all last summer.

There is her pretty little garden girl, hence her name on the web.  For those of you that she used to visit frequently, NOW you know where she has been.

Look at these roses...I wonder if she spray painted that little arbor?

My Mom is very into little details, and such cute ones. This is on her front porch.  Every nook and cranny is so cute to look at.

OK seriously, look at this idea .OH MOM you are so cute!!~

I am starting to feel really inadequate as a gardener...
Welcome to Linda's home and gardens.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
If you are in the NYS region, and have any questions on birds or flowers, I am certain my Mom could help you.
Just pop me an email and I will forward it to her.

Your mother sure does have a green thumb. Beautiful flowers and I see you have the decorating talent just like your mom. I love all of her beautiful displays. My favorite is the butterfly.

I'm like you Deb, my parents both had a green thumb but I sure didn't inherit those genes. Tell your mom that I think she does a super job with her gardens and she is so blessed to be able to grow so many beautiful flowers!

Your mom has quite the beautiful garden. I just planted yellow roses this year & mine don't look anything like hers! I just may have to take you up on your offer for some advice.

Oh Debbie, the gardening genes didn't get passed to me either. My grandfather was a wonderful gardener.

Your mom's garden is so beautiful.

Your Mom has some amazing talent we know where you get it from...well, except for the green thumb part...but, you know, you can't have everything. I'll bet you can drink her under the table? See? Everyone has something they are better at than their parents!

Love what she has done'd never know it was a townhouse. I'll bet all her neighbos are envious! xo Diana

Ohhh my goodness gracious! To say your mom has a green thumb would be a huge understatement...she's got her own botanical gardens back there! How wonderful to be able to enjoy that everyday!

Tell Linda that we have the same metal blue bird figurines! As usual, her gardens are gorgeous and I love the garden statues. I never would have guessed that her gardens surround a townhouse--she definitely has The Touch!

I got absolutely no gardening genes from the relatives! LOL I have had a brown thumb for a long, long time, so don't feel bad about yourself! We must be kindred spirits. Your mom's garden looks so pretty and full. I don't have that variety of hosta- mine stay small. I'm trying to change my thumb to green these days. It is a lot of work!!!

Ohhh I'm in love with the green buckets used for planters. I wonder if she would share how she did this??

Everything is so very beautiful, I also love the basket turned planter, it almost looks like a baby carriage.

Thanks for sharing the lovely photos.

WOW!! Your mom is a crazy awesome gardener!! My hosta have NEVER looked like that!! My old house hosta were 8 years old, and were a quarter of that size!!! she is amazing!!
I have a book about gardening. It will tell you what plants deer DON'T eat. Years ago, I planted azeleia bushes and they were gone the next day. Now, I am smarter!! Deer don't eat hosta!!

You are a wonderful gardener!! I am sure you will pick up some of her details and show us a easy and thrifty way to do them too!!

Your mom has such a beautiful garden. LoVE all the flowers, so colorful and cheery. Her porch looks so inviting.
My grandmother had beautiful gardens and my mom does as must have skipped me cause I can't seem to keep too much alive. My flowers die but I do pretty well with the veggies.

Have a great weekend!

Hi, Debbie~
Your Mom's gardens are beautiful! Truly! They remind me of my mom and dad's. They have some of those concrete figures too. They're cute.
Thanks for sharing the pictures with us. Hope you have a great weekend. :)
