A summer of Sundays

marciaz3 Tropical 3 Northwestern OntarioMarch 11, 2007

For some reason, iÂve gotten into the habit of taking my garden pictures on Sunday. Early on last year, i started taking the same shot of my front bed every week. HereÂs the progression:






Obviously i fell down on the job by the end of the summer! But itÂs interesting to see how things changed in a season. :)

What a great idea Marcia! It's hard to picture the progression of our gardens unless you take pictures like that. I will definitely try to remember to do that this year. I'm really amazed at how well your petunias on the stairs did in one week from July 6 to the 12. Must of been when those steriods kicked in!LOL

You know, Laurie, that's what struck me too - how fast those petunias grew! LOL And did you notice that they morphed into geraniums by the next week? Amazing, eh? Actually, i had been waiting for a new plant pole that someone made for me that holds five baskets and that's where the petunias went to that week.

Another thing i notice is that there's still a lot of lawn there....

Good idea, Marcia.

I like the idea of taking a picture each week of the flowerbed. It sure shows how much the plants grow and which ones flower each month.

Uhhh I always forget to look over here. This is a very good idea Marcia, I just don't know if I would remember to take the pics each week. Hmmmm maybe I'll try it this year. Maybe we should do this as a group to remind each other.

Great reminder of how fast things go once that snow is melted! 8^) Gotta love that!

I took a picture of our front yard on March 1st (with +/- 2-3ft of snow) and plan to take one on April 1st (fingers crossed that all the 100% snow will be gone by then!). Definately a great idea to do it once a week!
