June 16 2013 036

you might be able to tell just by looking at the first picture that we are not in miami

what you are about to see are some of the flowers in my in laws garden in west virginia

the weather here is much cooler

snow in the winter and cooler summers

there are so many beautiful flowers all around this house

it is a pleasure to walk out every time

based on the gardens that i have been seeing on this how does your garden grow series, what grows in this west virginian garden is very similar to what grows in some of the english gardens

my intention was to ask my mother in law all the names of the flowers i don’t know but we have been so busy with just family stuff that i didn’t get to it

hope pictures only is ok

joining the lovely Annie at mammasaurus for how does your garden grow
