Along the garden path

Along the garden path, we see all the different ways to stroll in peace and thought. Garden paths are healing to the soul. There are quiet distractions. Some paths lead to a front door, others in to the garden, and then some are meandering across the countryside. Here are lots of examples of garden paths so called because greenery and flowers adorn the edges.

Over the years, I’ve been captivated by how many ways a garden path is created. These are photos from my website over the last 10 years.

Going Blogwild!

Going Blogwild is fixing to happen here at this garden blog. You are going to like it if you like me and my writing. I left facebook today( ok I returned cause I missed it…and I was a bit in a mental break down at the time) cold turkey without any fanfare. I figured if you wanted to find me then you would.

I’d rather come to this familiar place called Flowergardengirl–and get back to my adventurous colorful creative side. This week I’m interested in making flower bucket messages. I can arrange them nicely over here and offer them to you more easily. They’re free….you just download them and send to a friend.

I might write one post a day or ten. I just feel like it’s time for me to go— Blogwild!
