My Garden

I have been working a lot subbing at the Doctor's office and have not had time to post and visit as often as I would like. Sharing my Garden Spots around the yard today, everything is so beautiful!

 Gladiola are beautiful this year and so tall I had to stake them up!  I am never sure where they will spring up as the squirrel moves the bulbs around during the winter-ha!

 I just adore their happy faces.  When I was a little girl, my Dad let me send away for some bulbs and I planted them along the side of the house that faced a shoe factory next door.  It was the brightest spot in the yard and I loved it!

 The Hydrangea Bush was one of hubby's favorites and it is so pretty this year.

 And this is my menagerie of odd pots that wintered over inside the shed.  They look well considering.

There is a Poinsettia at the top that was a gift from a neighbor at Christmas time, Moses in the basket on the left,  various Christmas Cacti, Mums on the bottom middle and Begonia that I rooted from cuttings.

And this is a pedestal pot under my front window with Vinca Vine, Pansies, Begonia, Petunia and Marigold.  I just love the container even though is is getting old.
This is my memorial tiered garden pot that I made for my Sweet Bill in his memory.  My neighbor called the shed garden my Memorial Garden and wants me to put a little plaque up in it.  I am thinking that I could paint something on the window box on the shed.... 

So I hope you like my shares this lovely Saturday Morning!  Hugs to all and thanks for visiting!  Come again soon please and I will try to get back to posting more often :)

My wild heart to yours...

Busy, Busy...

GOOD MORNING MY FRIENDS!  I cannot believe how fast the days have been going by!  I missed you all.  I am still adjusting to being one of two. But it is getting a smidgen better every day.  I worked all last week subbing at the doctor's office so that was good getting out and earning some money.  God provides and He is so Good!

So anyway, I wanted to share some photos of another outing at Huntington Beach State Park here in Murrells Inlet, SC.  This time, my daughter took me just before sunset when the creatures are all settling in for the night, it was so beautiful.
Huntington Beach State Park is a Painter's and Photographer's heaven!  There were many photographers there that evening with tripods and super huge scopes and lens but I am sure their pictures were no better than these little digital cameras take-ha! 
 Murrells Inlet, SC is a fishing village and nationally known for it's wonderful seafood restaurants. Huntington Beach, SC is a state park and was originally owned by the Huntington's.  Mrs. Huntington was a sculptress and across the road from the park is Brookgreen Gardens where her sculptures are displayed all over acres of property and lovely gardens.  It also has a Butterfly House and a wood trail with wildlife in their natural habitat (owls, red fox, Eagles, hawks, etc.)
Dragonfly on dried dock plant.
 Blue Heron and Egret sharing a fishing spot.

 It is a wonderful respite at the beach where you can forget all of your troubles and be lost in the beauty of God and nature.  On Saturday we saw Wood Storks, Egrets, Great Blue Heron, Green Heron, Alligators, Dragonflies, and breathtaking sunset scenes.
I loved snapping this of the little pier lookout over the marsh water.  The setting sun illuminates it so nicely and it makes me want to paint or sketch this :)

Clouds and reflections are some of my most favorite subjects.  Also, future paintings....
I am guessing this is Trumpet Vine that grows next to the sidewalk all along the causeway.

I sure hope you enjoyed this tour of Huntington Beach State Park and that you will one day visit this beautiful spot.  There are year round camping facilities there, also.  I am truly blessed that I am living only 10 minutes away from this paradise.  Thank you for coming and do come again soon.

My wild heart to yours...
