Photos of my mother’s garden July 9th, 2018

Last week, hubby brought me to yet another doctor’s appointment in the next state over (MA). This time our girls (23 & 18) came with, so we could visit my mom (who lives about a half hour from the clinic) afterwards.

Needless to say, I brought my camera. 😊

We were hoping to stop by a local beach on our way back out of town, but between the tourist infestation, and my body being it’s usual ridiculous self, we decided to skip it. However, I did manage to some shots of my mother’s garden. While she has limited space to work with, she certainly does the most with it! Mad props to her helper as well (an amazing woman who’s been taking care of my mother at least once a week for years now), who did the digging and does all the weeding.

These were all taken in my hometown of Gloucester, MA with my trusty Nikon COOLPIX P610 (Amazon affiliate link – thanks for the pennies if you click through and order something…LOL). I used the Auto Mode setting, then I reduced the pictures (usually 20-25%), gave a few a tweak or two via PicMonkey, et voilà!

Not 100% sure, but I think they are Marigold Bambinos.

 
 
No clue exactly sure what this hanging plant is… I’ll update after I hear back from mom

Such a peaceful little spot

Love the colors!

 
 
The pot is gorgeous too

 
 
Technically this isn’t in the garden, but I couldn’t resist

 
 
I’m a sucker for cobalt blue

Hope you enjoyed her garden tour!
