One year ago today I began my blog, despite relative computer and blogosphere ignorance. Thanks to a Squarespace template and my engineer son's advice, I was able to get started. On this journey I have virtually explored many fabulous gardens and made a number of internet friends. I have been encouraged in my own efforts at gardening, and I am constantly inspired by what I see other gardeners do. I would like to say thanks to all of you who visit my blog. Your support means a lot to me, and I am still humbled when people leave comments on my simple blog.
To celebrate, I am looking back over the past year in my gardens. Today I will cover the woodland garden, and then over the next few posts I will cover other parts of Deb's Garden.
So lets begin!
Walking down our drive, one can see an overview of part of the woodland garden. These photos were taken from roughly the same spot at different times of the year, with the last shot being taken this week:
Here are seasonal views taken from the main entrance to the woodland garden:

Midway through the woodlands there is a little side path:
And finally we come to the upper end of the woodland garden. Notice the addition of the little blue bridge. I did that in April. I ordered it, thinking it would come partially assembled. Not so. It came in a hundred pieces. I put it together myself, using power tools for the first time. I'm very proud of it!
Thanks for reminiscing over the past year in the woodlands with me. I am fortunate that our property came with mature trees, and this area is a constant source of pleasure to me. Creating a garden here has been a true labor of love.
