Grandma’s Garden in Delaware-2014

A few years ago I blogged about my mother-in-law’s beautiful garden. We don’t get to Delaware every year and it’s always a treat to get out of the car after our long journey and step into the garden.  It’s interesting and whimsical and fun!

IMG_6430We caught the last little bit of larkspur and that very long coned rudbeckia..

IMG_6477The larkspur adds pops of color everywhere.

IMG_6439I haven’t seen this in Massachusetts.

IMG_6433The shagbark hickory tree has grown and become the focal point in the last few years…

IMG_6482with good reason.

IMG_6438Elephant’s ear winters over in Delaware, imagine that?

IMG_6470I love this little clay birdhouse/feeder and I’m wondering what that tall plant to the left might be?

IMG_6478Looking out toward the back yard…

IMG_6480Michael’s mom is an avid garage sale and thrift shop hunter so the ornaments are always changing.

IMG_6486The hear no evil statue is a new addition. I thought it was funny that Michael just gave me a similar statue a few weeks ago.

IMG_6429This guy continues to keep watch from the deck.

IMG_6492He has help now.

I think they’ve got it covered.

It was a fun visit in a beautiful place. I hope we return soon!

Enjoy everything!

  1. It’s such fun to peek into one another’s gardens! So lovely! I’ve never seen a long coned rudbeckia here in the Midwest. I just love it! ♡ Happy summer days!
