Garden Works

Mimi and I have had a very productive year in our yard. We have designed new island beds where lawn used to be. We have added plants in existing beds to add depth and new colors. New tree varieties were added that we just had to squeeze in.

It looks like we’ve made it through another Mississippi winter without any major weather related devastation. It looks to me like whatever combination of cold and rain we had this winter was great for the flowers on most of our spring bloomers. Azaleas and camellias have had an outstanding bloom season.

AT GARDEN WORKS we feel a sense of relief when we get Christmas and New Year’s behind us. We are getting ready for the spring season now. We have buyers in Atlanta getting all the new products for our new member plant and gift area called the sun room.

Finally, the Mississippi cool down is back. The cool down is the signal to prepare the yard for fall and winter. There are so many things happening in our yards that can be tended to. The hummingbirds are here now and about to move on to warmer areas.
