There are still signs of gardening happening but at a decreasing rate.
This double lilac blooms are so large that they are falling sideways. The color and scent are glorious.
The lawn is still being mowed, the really interesting house continues to fall into disrepair. I'm so tempted to knock but haven't yet.
How long has this tree peony been in place?
Some things look like they may have been added in the last few years.
It's always sad to see a place that has been a home and garden abandoned and left to the elements. Here, in a community that I work near during the week, this place is right next to a well maintained home and garden of similar vintage. Someone thought that a bit of wisteria growing on the entry would be a lovely idea and it was. Notice how it's taken over the roof and is running along the top of the trees.
It then takes over this large tree a bit further left.
From the other side. Fortunately, it doesn't seem to seed about in our climate and is relatively easy to eliminate.
Although most of our homes will be sold to and loved by new owners, many of our gardens will not outlive the presence of their gardeners for very long which makes enjoying them while we're together even more precious. Wishing you many glorious days taking pleasure in your Eden!
