Bloomin' Tuesday

So has EVERYONE been dealing with the awful heat? It has been like a really bad August here in Ohio. This is not fun gardening weather.

We had so many heavy thunderstorms last week, the poor roses and weigela and Hardy Geraniums took a real beating. The blooms that didn't fall off look all ragged and torn.

This is my first Bloomin' Tuesday edition. So be patient with me. By way of introduction, I'm Connie from Ohio, married to a great garden loving hubby, with 2 children - the youngest just turned 18 this week. We have a 13 yr. old border collie mix named Petey. I'm an avid gardener, scrapbooker, homeschooling mom.

Tonight, I have a question. Have any of you moved from one home to another and taken your garden (or most of it) with you? We are considering a move...albeit 2 doors down and across to another street. We've put a lot of time and money into our garden and love it....we don't want to leave it behind!! Anybody had experience with moving a garden?

I'm including a couple of pics. Enjoy. Have a good week. Don't forget to stop by Bloomin' Tuesday at

Connie, I don't blame you for wanting to move your gardens. I've heard of people that mark things when the house is for sale that they will be taking with them. I love the area with the wall and the fountain. Beautiful! I signed you up on Mr Linky. Thanks for joining in! Jean

Hi Connie, Your blooms are beautiful. Your area has been hit hard with storms this last week, hasn't it? It's nice to see your garden is doing so well in spite of it all. Good luck on the move!

Hi Connie
This was my first time doing Bloomin Tuesday too and I have found so many fabulous blogs because of it :-}
The heat wave we've been experiencing has finally ended & the temps are more enjoyable now. Good luck with your move (could you divide some of your favourite plants to take with you) :-}.
