Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made and forgot to put a soul into–Beecher

As the summer season approaches, I’ve decided to add a new thread to my blog–Through the Garden Gates. Each week I’ll highlight a garden photo or photos from my own garden, the gardens of friends and neighbors, and public gardens I’ve visited, and post one of my favorite garden quotes. Lest you ooh and ahh over the gate at the head of this blog, I can’t take any credit for it, although I would love to have it in my garden. It’s a free download from Microsoft Clip Art.

My garden gate is pictured below as well as some of the first blooms of summer, well, almost summer. I hope you’ll enjoy your trips…

Through The Garden Gates!
