Beloved and Beautiful Gardens

Awaken, O north wind, and come, O south wind.
Breathe on my garden, and spread the fragrance of its spices.
Let my beloved come into his garden and taste its choicest fruits.
Song of Solomon 4:16

 

The Promise Gardens remain so beautiful again this early September and will remain so until the “great leaf drop” from our Promise Gardens large historic and flowering trees. We love seeing the fall foliage in the gardens and historic trees but until they change for the autumn season we can still behold our beloved and beautiful Promise Gardens in their late flower show.

Happy Gardening,

Stunning Promise Gardens

The most beautiful time of the year is the Spring and Summer shows of beautiful foliage, flowers, trees and of course, the always gorgeous Rose & Flower Show.  The 2019 Rose and Flower Show in May-June will be incredible this year as we institute new changes, additions and surprises.  We wish you a “Happy Gardening Spring” as you prepare for the 2019 season.  -JacyJoyPals

Spring Garden Planning

It’s that time again gardening friends to plan your gardens for 2019 season.  We are creating many new garden beds, moving plants to new locations and the favorite part of it all is choosing beautiful new plants from the plethora of gorgeous ones available to us.  This year we will be adding to our four rose gardens new antique, English and modern roses with colorful new borders.  For our original Promise Garden on the rock hill where Lydia lives and oversees, we will plant many new flowering bulbs and low-growing flowering ground covers.  This are  just a few of the additions to the 2019 Promise Gardens so an inspiration storyboard was in order.  As all good gardeners say, “it is never too early to plan for our gardens” and “you can never have too many garden beds and flowers.”  We wish you inspiration and happy planning your gardens for 2019!  #Jacy JoyPals  #PromiseGardens

Beautiful Sunset and Snow

“But at sunset the clouds gathered again, bringing an earlier night, and the snow began to fall straight and steadily from a sky without wind, in a soft universal diffusion more confusing than the gusts and eddies of the morning. It seemed to be a part of the thickening darkness, to be the winter night itself descending on us layer by layer.”
— EdithWharton

Meadows Dawn


~ ~ ~
“Out of the mid-wood’s twilight
Into the meadow’s dawn,
Ivory limbed and brown-eyed,
Flashes my Faun!

He skips through the copses singing,
And his shadow dances along,
And I know not which I should follow,
Shadow or song!

O Hunter, snare me his shadow!
O Nightingale, catch me his strain!
Else moonstruck with music and madness
I track him in vain!”

In The Forest – Poem by Oscar Wilde
