Potty Gardener your garden is fantastic,and all in pots makes it more fantastic.

Dovefromabove the trees are on the next property and the owner and his son came over in January and removed all the large branches something he didn't have to do and I was so thankful.I will just clean it a a very slow pace.Every fall my Son would cover two fish ponds with leaves to insulate concrete ponds from cracking plus all the plants around ponds.Even though he was in a lot of pain ,last fall he covered the ponds.I have started to clear the leaves and this is what i have done so far.

I do wish we lived closer to each other as my dear Wife wants to move into an apartment and there goes my garden and my house plants plus I'm getting old and frail (gosh I hate to admit this) and my Orchids will need new homes.There are not a lot of people here that can grow Orchids even though they are easier than African Violets.Guess I will donate everything to a local garden club.
