Today I am sharing the gardens at Fanningbank,the home of the Lieutenant Governor of Prince Edward Island. These are some photos I took last August when we went for a tour of the garden which is open to the public. There is a large formal garden ,a rose garden, veggie garden,and an informal garden around the edge of the property which has a lot of large trees and a view of the harbour.
I am pleased to have been asked to sit on the board for the gardens(although I normally dislike meetings). I think it will be a learning experience for me and later I will be helping to pick the annuals for the annual beds in the centre of the garden. The garden has 4 or 5 full time gardener's on staff so we don't do the planting and maintenance just the planning. I would love to have these gardener's in our garden for a few weeks!!
This reminds me that a few people have asked if we do the gardening ourselves in our own garden or if we have gardeners and the answer is that Andrew and I do all the gardening ourselves and enjoy it(mostly)!
Also, I want to clarify that the garden photos that I shared yesterday as I mentioned were last summer's photos as we live in a zone 5b and our crocus,snowdrops are the only things blooming yet. So the garden is far from photogenic at this point but we are busy doing spring clean up and a few projects and the best is yet to come!
Also,thank you Mary for the award but I am not able to get into your cottage blog for some reason to accept it. If you read this maybe you could email me your blog address and Thanks again. Also ,thank you to everyone who takes the time to read my blog,leave a comment or follows it.I know I am not very good at getting to everyone but I am slow at this computer stuff and time is short so I want to say thank you again.
For the next couple of weeks we are really busy here so I will only post occasionally but when the garden starts blooming I will have lots of pictures to share.
Have a great weekend!
