Weekly Challenge- "How Does Your Garden Grow?"

  The theme for the weekly challenge at Inspiration Avenue was, "How Does Your Garden Grow?" and since I haven't posted any garden pictures lately, that's what I decided to use.......
hope you enjoy!

Your garden is just lovely ... I adore your birthday arbor ... what a great gift. Was it handmade for you? If I had your garden, I don't think I'd get much done ... I'd be out there "commuting" with nature all day!

Thanks for sharing your special garden with us!

You have a lovely garden Steph - your little birdbox is adorable, and I love that first photograph of the white flowers and the statue - stunning :)

You DO have the best garden, Stephanie, I love looking at it! I was admiring the red flowers and when I saw you call the plant Bee Balm...what??? I didn't know it 'came' in red! How glorious! I have it in a pale pink, it reminds me of ballet tutus when it blooms...it is such an easy plant and every year it takes over more weeds...mine won't bloom for at least another month up here...wonder if I could find red...

BTW, your peachy everything looks/sounds so GOOD. Can't wait to hear all about blueberries! You would make someone a fine wife, LMAO!

A big, fat Hug for you!

Steph,
Tasted your cheescake at the market...OMG, sooooo good. Fell in love with the blue painted bluebird house...convinced myself I couldn't afford it, but was gifted half the price out of the blue...is it still for sale? sharr11@emory.edu

Oh so beautiful! You are so lucky. I know keeping a garden like this must be a lot of work. But so worth it. I love looking at these pictures. I feel like I I'm lost in time.
Have a great week.

With those pics, I can imagine what your whole garden looks like and it inspire me to have one like it. Make me want to put a bird nest too. I can hear them chirping and happy with all the flowers around them.
