I started my garden last Spring & I knew little to nothing at all about gardening, but I always had a desire to grow flowers & veggies in the yard. Growing up, my mom grew peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers & herbs. She also had a beautiful rose garden. I always enjoyed the view & the veggies, but didn't pay much attention to what my mom did to make everything grow. The year that my mom was planning to retire, she promised to stay with me for a few weeks the following spring & teach me everything she knew about gardening & to help me finally plant a garden of my own. I couldn't wait! She retired in May of 2008, was diagnosed with terminal cancer in November & left us all too early in January of 2009 before Spring arrived. We never did get to plant my garden together. That spring & also in the Spring of the following year, it was just to painful & I was not ready to even contemplate creating the garden without her. But in the Spring of 2011, I decided to go for it! With limited resources & the help of an extra-handy hubby, I jumped into the world of gardening & I AM HOOKED! I find my time spent in the garden to be incredibly therapeutic. I often feel my mom's presence in the garden with me, guiding me along the way. I also find it to be very rewarding to nourish my family with the freshest produce that I grew with my own two hands. My husband & 2 young daughters love to help out as much as possible & we love to dine "al fresco" whenever we can. Since my name is Mary, my girls now think that Mary, Mary Quite Contrary......was written about me!I hope to create many special memories with my family here. I think that would be the most fitting tribute in my mother's honor & I hope that she would be very proud of the space I have created in her memory. There is nothing more that I would enjoy than sharing an evening cocktail with her in the midst of it all, but I know that at least she is here with me in spirit.

They aren't much to look at now, as the Zinnias & Sunflowers have yet to bloom. There is also lavender planted here which I am hoping will eventually be large & fragrant & a vibrant purple.

My potting bench, a Mother's Day gift created by my husband & a mailbox to keep all of my small gardening tools, gloves & twine within an arm's reach. Of course, we also have small plastic tools for the girls in there. The patio pavers were recycled from a beach house remodel. My husband created the potting bench from scrap materials we had laying around. He did the same with the fence & gate. We just needed to add the mesh deer fencing.

Garden Name:  Bali Hi

My backyard gardens are are my favorite places.  The garden in the forefront is my perennial garden.  As the season goes on, I get so excited to see what will pop up and bloom next.  I am anxiously awaiting my canna, which have come back strong.  The hummingbirds love this garden!

The vegetable garden in the background is outstanding this year.  The cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, string beans & herbs are well on their way; hoping for a green pepper early this week and the first cucumber maybe the end of this week.  Trying garlic this year - looking good, too.

It's so therapeutic & relaxing  to maintain and enjoy my gardens. We have a pond feature under the windows in the picture, and it is so calming to sit on the patio and hear the water and see how beautiful and colorful the gardens are.  It's just as beautiful at night with our landscape lighting.

I love heirloom tomatoes and grow quite a few to eat,  and to freeze for the winter.
