Lori's Garden



My friend Lori's garden on Long Island is a little on the wild side right now.
Her mower is broken and she's waiting for the poison
ivy removal people to appear. A garden untamed is a delight.

This picture: box wood, daffodil, periwinkle and hosta.


Bleeding hearts, hosta.



Reflecting pool.




Violets for Eb.


Dog tooth violet for me.




Everything all at once.
Marsh marigold, tulip, azaelea.

  1. Lori's garden is glorious! Reminds me of my WM.

    Yes, I saw Night of the Hunter on TCM the other night! It was partially my inspiration for today's post.

    I'm taking your lovely Haiku ad home with me.

  3. Beautiful riches of an unintentionally untended garden!

    Re my blog:
    I need to reflect about what I want to do, at the moment I feel very hurt. You certainly would be invited.

    now we are seeing the trout lilies - you would like those...
    and then the trillium - especially on the mountain
    spring is ablaze!

    much love to you...

  6. Your friend's garden is beautiful-untamed-the best sort! I battled my weeds a few days ago but have given up again for now as they look fine! The birds and the bees like it!

  7. Hey E-

    A garden untamed... I loved that sentence. Pure poetry! Looks like you had a lovely day. So nice of you to take us with you.

    I am wondering how to put this new function I've been seeing on your and others blogs on mine... where you can suggest that they might also like other posts and it shows a little picture. How do I do that? If it's not too much, can you let me know either on my comments area or by e-mail? Danke!

  9. Such a lovely garden and such glorious spring blooms. It's just the kind of garden I find most appealing - one that looks like it just sprouted up on its own!

  13. It's beautiful! I agree that perfectly groomed gardens are a little sad looking. There should be some chaos in a garden.

  14. Yes, wild gardens are the most beautiful, I think. And walking through your friend's garden must be a treat after a week of walking through the city (although that's one of my favourite things to do, too).

  15. Thank you Elizabeth. I guess that I will have to store my mower. Plants that I have never seen out back keep popping up. Thanks everyone for the lovely comments. They make me glad that I spend so much time pushing my wheel barrow around the place. I've tried to make it a 12 month garden. Thanks to all, and everyone is welcome anytime. Lori

  19. Our shrubbery is as wild as that atm and I'm dreading the moment when I have to go out there and start removing the weeds - because it *will* happen, oh yes.(eventually)

  20. Seriously, I want to go there...as you know, I love gardening :P

  21. I think that's what gardens should be like! Although, the perfectly pedicured ones can be charming too...

  22. I was just at Kew Gardens yesterday. I love how I can indulge in the wonderfully maintained and the untamed delight.

    Your friend has a lovely, lovely garden. That reflecting pool is wonderful.

  23. Hi, Elizabeth! Just catching up with your here...wonderful posts in recent days...Lori's garden is dreamy--love the wildness and tangle! And that salad the other day...I'd love a bite of that. Oh, a few more sign-up for the haiku even at my place--it's shaping up good! :o) Happy Day, my friend ((HUGS))

  25. Lovely photos! Thanks for the walk in Lori’s garden. Too bad about the poison ivy in paradise. It was amazing how everything started blooming in NY at once when the sun came out a the end of last week. Your salad below looks tasty.
