“And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.”
Happy Valentine’s Day sweet friends. I have always enjoyed this day – the day we set aside to celebrate love. My prayer for you all today is that you feel loved by all of the special people in your life, but most importantly that you truly know just how loved you are by the Father. He demonstrated His love for us on the cross, where He died and rose again that we might have eternal life. This is the GREATEST LOVE of all!
With February now half over, my mind is on all things gardening. The past two weekends My Renaissance Man has been pruning and cleaning, getting it all ready for spring. If you have been a long-time follower you know that we established our garden in June of 2015. A wonderful benefit to blogging are all the photos that I have of our gardening journey. This is just a snippet from my 2018 photo journal so be sure to browse through more gardening posts here.
Last year was a first for the Indigo Frost Agapanthus. I love the indigo blue throat that changes to white on the trumpet-shaped flower.
Many of you have asked about the stone pathway and its upkeep. It does require maintenance to prevent the zoysia grass from overtaking it. My sweet hubby does all of that and I do the weeding. It is a labor of love!
I have several Vanilla-Strawberry Hydrangeas that produce beautiful blooms. A change that was made last summer was the painting of the tuteurs and the garden table and chairs. They had been black for many years and we decided a change to white was needed.
Annuals are planted between the soft touch hollies, last year it was vinca. The Sioux Crape Myrtles mark the side entrance to the garden! The two story building is the hubby’s workshop that he built himself over twenty five years ago.
