I have an affinity for flower gardens whether designed by a landscaper or home gardener. Everywhere you look, be it a shopping mall, an amusement park, municipal buildings or a resort, the professional landscaper has left his/her mark! But, the tireless work of the home gardener generally goes unnoticed and unappreciated. While I was on vacation for the past two weeks in Bay City, Michigan, I visited friends and family and these pictures are the result of some serious picture-taking. I was simply amazed at the expertise in design, color and care. You guys are the greatest!!! Keep up the great work!!!!!!! For those of you who don’t have a clue how to start, take a close look at these pictures. I bet a lot of ideas will pop up!! Soon, I will have another blog that will help you figure out a scheme to rearrange shrubs, trees and plants to create your own little heaven on earth!!!!!!! Enjoy!!!
