Today she is celebrating her birthday. Kathy is a quilter, gardener, cook, and basketball enthusiast. She is also a great hostess & knows how to accommodate the hoards of family that arrive at her doorstep every summer..having an eight-bedroom house helps too! In honour of the occasion, let’s take a tour of Kathy’s gardens on the farm near Carberry, Manitoba.
She also knows the name of every plant in her sprawling beds.
Let's take a closer look at the peonies.
Beyond the arbour is a massive vegetable garden. Earlier this week, she picked over a hundred pounds of tomatoes and that was just the beginning. She makes great salsa! I borrowed the recipe many years ago and it is a family favorite. (I'll post it tomorrow.)
Every garden needs a little art. Here's a garden angel Kathy made...I like the barbed wire halo.
Hope you have a wonderful birthday, Kathy! Sorry we can't have cake (& coffee!!!) together today.
