I knew I'd be weeks behind with the trip this spring, but I was willing to make the sacrifice.. I was also able to keep our non-stop harvest going thanks to the cold frames and mini hoop tunnels. In one tunnel, I had planted a few dozen clumps of endive, spinach, mustard and lettuce in mid-autumn. Now, they are lovely sized heads and ready for picking.. I will take some photos, but in the crazy rush of this past week the cable that connects my camera and computer has decided to go AWOL.. sigh.. I guess I'll have to look for my card reader instead!
I've also discovered another unique Maritime blog - http://www.hungrytiller.com/ - check it out.. it's just new this year, and I'm really enjoying the posts..
But, until I find my darn camera cord, here are a few more shots of Monet's Garden in Giverney..
|Me, poking through yet another seed rack..|
|I just love the arches.. so beautiful..|
|Approaching the wisteria bridge.. just a bit further down the pathway..|
|Towering bamboos line the stream.|
|There it is - and it's covered with tourists.. ah well..|
|So crowded that we couldn't even get near.. still beautiful though.|
|Imagine the nasturtiums of summer spilling over the pathway.. (you're not allowed to go down this path, or most paths for that matter. They were roped off.. just the perimeter.|
|A lovely Japanese Tree Peony. Huge flowers!!|
|Leaving, but needed one last look back before the parking lot.. (mind you, the parking lot had a homemade ice cream stand, so it was also spectacular!)|
