Take a Walk Around my Garden

Come and take a walk around my Georgia garden. I am located in a rural area of Georgia, about forty miles west of Atlanta. I enjoy gardening in raised bed gardens and containers. I am also an amateur beekeeper with a few hives of honey bees.

Summer is one of my favorite times of year, and one reason is all the colorful sights. A morning stroll through the garden is never disappointing. There are always some interesting specimens around to examine.

Wow! So beautiful photos. I have these berries and will have ripe fruit soon. The summer nights make you feel free and relaxed. To enjoy such greatness outdoors is breath taking for anyone

Thanks DDE, I use the berries for making homemade wine. They are good in jellies also, but the wild berries in my area have many little seeds, and have to be strained for jelly.
