a garden update. west virginia edition

June 22 2013 167

it has been well over a week since we returned back to miami and even though we worked on our crazy overgrown yard this past weekend, after being in west virginia surrounded by beautiful gardens/flowers, our yard and house is leaving me with much to be desired

so, i decided to go through the countless pictures i took while on vacation and focus on west virginia once again

this time though, the un-planted side of things

sure the planted gardens of west virginia were beautiful

peonies, roses, lupins, dahlias, lilies…

however, the unplanted gardens, the ones that are just made by nature are just as magical

moss covered grounds, wild flowers, wild mushrooms, tree fungus (sounds gross but most of the time oh so beautiful)

this is after all where the fairies live
