A Visit to Ms. Doris' Gardens

Went to Ms. Doris' Three Doors Down.

She has over 50 Hydrangeas ! Here are a few beginning to bloom. She roots them and has shades of whites, pinks, blues and purples........oh yeah the Limelight green too.





Where do you think this little fellow was found?
Well in the Butterfly Garden of course.
Did you say this is a Ruellia Ms. Doris? Love the softness of the color.
Coral Bean
One of her Gardens is dedicated to Texas..one of her daughters lives there.


Look what you can do with horse shoes...
I just love this!


Now it's your turn to visit my gardens Ms. Doris..Thank you so much for all of the cuttings!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today I am Thankful for Ms. Doris and her generous spirit.

I love that concrete planter!!!

Please tell Miss Doris her garden is lovely. And tell her she needs to start a blog. I'm certain we all could learn a lot from her.

You lucky girl - I am so jealous. Love the beautiful gardens and what a nice neighbor to have - the best gardening kind.

Hi Darla. How have you been?

You know, I kinda wish Ms. Doris would live three doors down from me.

Darla, your wonderful photos make my garden look so good. Thank you for putting them on your blog. I really enjoyed your visit and the plant gifts (I haven't planted them yet). I'll be up to see you soon. Doris

Noelle said...

Oh Darla,

I absolutely love hydrangeas, but they do not grow well here. The next best thing is to see them here in your blog :-) I can see why you like to visit Doris' garden.

Tracy said...

Wow, if I had a neighbor like that, I don't think that I would be spending any time in my own garden.

What a beautiful garden. Love it.

You can tell she is a passionate gardener just by the wonderful variety of plants she grows & the interesting garden art! I loved the tour, thanks for sharing. :) I'm so jealous of her 50 types of Hydrangeas, wish I had room to grow that many.

George said...

Miss Doris has a beautiful garden. Your neighborhood has to be the most beautiful in town thanks to the two of you.

Danielles Garden said...

Nice garden!

Corner Gardener Sue said...

Ms. Doris has a beautiful property, too. Yes, tell her she should start a blog.

I have some friends who I've given to and received plants from. At this point, we pretty much have what we wanted from each other. Her yard is larger than mine, and she grows a lot of plants that spread too far and wide for my gardens.
