Late to the Wideshot Party...Again...

 My Daddy used to say, I was always a day late and a dollar short.
I would tease, if he gave me the dollar, we could fix that part.

But, seems I am a bit late with the Wideshot, every month.

Heather, over at Xericstyle,
started posting a wide shot of her garden at the first of every month,
and asked us to play along.

It's a good way to see how the garden is progressing.

So, let's start at the front, and go around.

I had too long a lens for the whole front.
So, we have sections.

Don't you love that power box and poles?

A closer look at the Front Beds.

And, the Drive Bed, on the other side of the circular drive.

The view from the mailbox.

The Fenced Yard.

With our crazy spring weather, things are way behind last year.
Some clean up and edging needs to be done.

Outside the back gate, this bed is beginning to fill in.

The Back Bed, along the back of the house.
Again, things are way behind.

And, finally, the view from the back, toward the mailbox.

You won't see the veggie garden this time.
It's pretty pitiful.

Go see Heather for more Wideshots.
(Blogger's not letting me do links today.  Go to Xericstyle.wordpress.com.)

Here's hoping I get my act together and do this at the first of next month.

'Til later...
Take care...


  1. There's a lot to like here, late or not. Things will fill in at their own pace, won't they? Every year my husband starts asking me "wasn't this bigger last year by now?" and every year I tell him - "it doesn't matter what happened last year - every year is different.". I've got a big yellow gas line pipe marker in my front yard at the far side and it drives me nuts. Since yours is yours and not mine, it is easy for me to look right past yours. Odd how that works... Love the meandering paths and appreciate the need for fences I especially admire the way your fence is open to encourage breezes and taking in the longer views. Lovely all around!

  2. Thank you for the nice tour around your garden, I enjoyed it very much.

  3. Hi Linda! I like the long views/wide shots of your garden! You have a lot of points of interest and great garden accessories
    I also like your daughter/father conversation!.

  4. I love your rustic fence, and your wide shots look great! What happened to your veggie garden Linda? Late freeze?

    1. Not too sure about veggie garden. I think the tomato plants went in too late. Kept waiting for it to quit freezing here.
      The squash and okra....I just don't know. But, I'm not giving up!
