Jeanne sent me pictures of her garden. I love this picture of Jeanne and DiDi, and I'm sure this is what Jeanne does each day before working in her special yard. I've done blogs on her yard before. It's so beautiful in bloom and many visitors come to see it.

This is a Clematis, and "wall art." There are unexpected things all through the garden.

Now, would you expect to see a flying pig there? I wouldn't-- but it's there!

This beautiful plant is Otto Luyaken Laurels. The cat is guarding it. I always call Jeanne to get advice on how to improve my yard, but I know I'll never be the gardener she is.

This is a Tree Peony- it's gorgeous. Will it continue to bloom all summer, Jeanne?

Kari (Kira) was returned to rescue because her new owners realized they didn't have time for her.

She went out on to the deck and sat with DiDi to help direct Jeanne as she worked. I'm sure the two girls were full of ideas.

The Japanese Red Maple was fine where it was, they both decided.

And they both thought the White Tree Peony was wonderful. I can't wait to see more pictures of the garden-- or better yet, to see it in person!

Jeanne is an amazing person! I don't know how she finds time to garden, keep house, and do all that she does for Peke rescue. She has a love in her heart that just radiates from her! Linda, I think you fall into this same category... amazing!
