How the garden grows, part 2





























I spent this past weekend visiting my sister who lives on the other side of the state.  When I left Everett on Friday morning, it was 64 degrees and cloudy...when I got to Yakima three hours later it was 75 degrees and sunny...in between there was Snoqualmie Pass (crossing the Cascade Mts for those of you not from the Pacific NW)...there were still patches of snow in the pass...testament to the cold spring/summer we have been having here!
My sister is the gardener; I am not.  I posted about the initial stages of her garden here...its only been two years and the results are astonishing...that is her constant companion Tupper in the photo...he is tied up since there is a mother cat with her newborn kitties just on the other side of the back fence...and he will not give them any peace!

Everything has been filling in nicely...the plants in the garden and the accouterments in the garden shed and outdoor patio...
Such a sensation of sights...such a delight and a pleasure...

I'm linking up to Mosaic Monday at Little Red House...where the host Mary is having her own garden sensation experience!
