Woofie, I don't know what to be the most envious of: your huge acreage, the sweet dog, the fact that you can grow your plants from seeds, all your beautiful pots and their placement, or your super greenhouse. 'Beautiful layout and all that room to expand!

Thanks Sharon, for letting us meander through Woofie's lovely garden! Thumbs up

Woofie, what a lovely garden tour. Your plants are beautiful and healthy ... great growing! And, a wonderful job of recycling too; I really like the dryer planter as well as the one made from wooden pallets. That humongous pile of gravel sure made a difference in the gardens too, it's a nice backdrop for all the containers and plants.

Your wolf is gorgeous, I think we need an article on her and that last photo is just precious!

What a great property!! I love all of your land, and I'm so impressed by your use of recycled materials. Your greenhouse is fabulous. You've done an awesome job (and I agree--that wolf is adorable).

Goodness, you all are up early! (yawn, still working on my first cup of coffee Smiling ) Thanks so much for all the kind comments....but I don't think of myself as "creative." More just really good at appropriating other people's good ideas! Hilarious!

Beautiful gardens woofie! I can't imagine how long it must take you to water everything! Whistling

Your DH did a good job of picking out a fountain. Love your greenhouse too. I can't imagine how sore you were after moving all that gravel, but it certainly does look nice. Thumbs up

I agree with Lin - I'd love to see an article on your wolf too.

Thanks for sharing all your hard work with us, and thanks for another great article Sharon.

That was fun! And inspiring too. Some of my plants also have unusual homes. My theory is if it will hold soil, it will hold plants.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Loved seeing the progression of your wonderful garden. Recycling old items shows a lot of imagination. I love the gravel idea, and I can imagine how sore you must have been after moving it around! The pergola is nice, too, but I doubt you get too much time to sit in that chair!

Sharon, you did such a good job, and needless to say, I enjoy your interesting and informative articles.
