Having had time off from the blogging world to visit my grandchildren, I just had to create this mosaic upon my return. For other great Mosaic Monday posts, visit Mary at Little Red House.
My grandchildren have grown up so far in two rather soul-less suburban gardens ... you know the ones! They're located in those brand new suburban housing developments. The backyard is grass ... nothing else! ... and the front yard has the obligatory kidney-shaped garden bed that includes the mailbox and plants that some property developer managed to get a great deal on when they buy in bulk!
So, when Gardening Grammie makes a visit, she tries to make sure they get to visit a great garden. This one is my favourite ... there's far too much to see all in one go with three grandchildren, so they get to see something new every time they visit this public Parkland. They love it ... and so do I. The pleasure in their eyes when they get to see, touch, smell and appreciate all the colours and textures is a delight to the soul. This particular part of the Parklands is called the 'Spectacle Garden' and it is quite a spectacle in Autumn!
