Sunday walk around the yard

I was walking around the garden and yard watering by hand some of the container plants and I took these pictures. I am especially proud of the banana tree. I had this banana tree in NJ for 4 years and it did nothing so when I moved here 4 years ago I stuck it in the ground thinking if it makes it that would be great but if it doesn't oh well. Well last year the tree grew up to the second story window, which about 13 feet or more!!! I guess it likes it here in Charlotte! I hope y'all enjoy my plants!

Sherri, I think you live in a perfect climate for growing flowers, etc. You do such a nice job!

Thanks Mary! It is much easier to grow flowers here than in northwestern NJ that's for sure! The winters are less harsh and sometimes we hardly have one. The flowers get much bigger here too because they don't have to die off and come back entirely again (except my banana tree).

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
