The Gardener

The Gardener

The gardener does not love to talk.
He makes me keep the gravel walk;
And when he puts his tools away,
He locks the door and takes the key.

Away behind the currant row,
Where no one else but cook may go,
Far in the plots, I see him dig,
Old and serious, brown and big.

He digs the flowers, green, red, and blue,
Nor wishes to be spoken to.
He digs the flowers and cuts the hay,
And never seems to want to play.

Silly gardener! summer goes,
And winter comes with pinching toes,
When in the garden bare and brown
You must lay your barrow down.

Well now, and while the summer stays,
To profit by these garden days
O how much wiser you would be
To play at Indian wars with me!

Lydia Of The Promise Gardens

The beautiful bronze Lydia adorned and boasting beautiful coleus flowers shows off her beauty as the sun shines on her.  This is her new color for 2018 as she lights up the corner Promise Garden.  From original white to blue to bronze she always shines and perfects the show in the Promise Gardens.  She models in frames for 2018.

Beautiful Golden Copper Lydia

Beautiful Golden Copper Lydia has been wonderfully dressed in a brilliant golden copper for 2018.  She spent many years “natural” then to “dressed in blue” and now exquisitely dressed in gleaming golden copper.  When the sun’s rays shine on Lydia she takes on a totally surreal beauty that only the light, sun and color could capture.  Remember as you garden and tire of the “old look” you can always rejuvenate and beautify those sad garden statues and features to new again.  Isn’t she lovely?  We think so and even though the photos do not do true justice to her, the eyes do.  Happy Gardening and be sure to add a “Lydia” to your gardens too.

Loveliness at Promise Gardens


Loveliness is everywhere you just have to look around you in God’s creation we see beauty, love, hope and eternity. In our Promise Gardens it is filled with life, color, aroma, art and life from birth to death, creation at its best and worst. How blessed are we to be able to create, sow, seed, grow and tend the generous supply of creation our God’s has given us. It is WHY we love the creation in all of its splendor and have just a little of it in our own gardens. -JacyJoypals

Happy Spring!

Beautiful Spring!  We are happy to see the flowers begin to bloom and are looking forward to this year’s beauties as they grow another year in fullness and show. The sun is shining brightly here in the Valley which means our flowering trees are popping out all over. It’s a cheerful place and since we all love the colors of spring, a repeated post was in order. This is a combination of my favorite colors and the inspiration color palette for my beach house and formal areas of blue and white. Isn’t it lovely?

Jacy's Cherry Blossom Bliss

At Promise Gardens we are always thinking color, color scheme, color palette, storyboards and especially for each new garden season. What will it be this year? Pastels or bold colors? We shall see!
