2012 Garden Review

Happy New Year! 2013 has arrived with pouring rain and cold temperatures. It is a perfect day to stay inside and watch football. I have spent the morning reviewing 2012 garden images, pulling out shots from each month that for various reasons were not puplished on my blog. Each year I like to do a 'best of the rest' post, so here it is: Never before seen images of Deb's Garden, 2012. Enjoy!













Did you have a favorite month in your own garden in 2012?

I wish you all the very best in 2013. Happy gardening!

Very nice! I love May in my garden, but every season has its own beauty. Happy 2013!

Hi Deb. I always enjoy visiting your blog and seeing the beautiful photos of your garden! Fun to see the change of seasons all in one post :-) We've had a few rainy days here, too. A gardener needs those to catch up on inside chores that we can't get to the rest of the year. Have a great new year! I look forward to visiting your blog through this new year.

Your best of the rest is just beautiful. I love that shot in May of the seating area. It is magazine worthy. Everything about it is just perfect, the green background to the flower drifts. I wish you the best too. Happy New Year, Deb.

Your Best of the Rest is tops! I always think of your garden as serene, even when there is color and blooming excitement going on. You've got a lovely design and balance and all your photo shots show it. Happy 2013.

When I dream my Muddy Boot garden dreams, there are images of your beautiful garden in my head.

So lovely.

Really lovely photos Deb, great to wander through a whole year at once in your garden. I think my favourite season is spring, but then it depends which plant is flowering at the moment! Hope you and your garden have a good year in 2013 !

I would love to stroll through your gardens, especially in March! Look at those Azaleas! When I see your photos, sometimes I think I'm looking at pictures from a botanical garden. I don't know how you keep it looking so beautiful all of the time. Happy New Year!

You've done an excellent job of creating interest in your garden year round. Each month had its charm and something to enjoy. Even January with that moss carpet and bench is an invitation to stroll around your garden. You've got a tree to scent the garden in February, spectacular colour in March and by April everything is a beautiful wall of green.

My favourite gardening month is April, as that is the start of my gardening year, and all of the bulbs first come out.

I'm so pleased you shared these wonderful images of your garden from this year. I love your garden in all seasons. Christina

Deborah how lovely to see the evolution of your garden...I would say early May and March were best here.

Great pictures. I love the arbor and stone path.

Hi Deb
Your beautiful photos remind us why we all love gardening so much. Oh! Those colourful flowers and shrubs. And it's always interesting to see the Dec - Mar photos with no snow :)

January 2, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAstrid

I love that idea! There are always those photos that don't seem to fit a particular post, but some are pretty good shots. Yours are awesome! Thanks for sharing!

You've been hiding these from us!! Love walking through your garden any day. any month. Hope 2013 is a wonderful year for you.

January 2, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKaren Chapman

Deb that was a really lovely tour, besides being a collection of lovely shots, whether wide views or details such as the ivy on the plinth. All magazine worthy, and as one of your other readers says, of such a beautifully tranquil garden! Thanks for sharing and all the best for 2013! (Oh - autumn is my favourite time in my garden, which makes it April and May. but I love the seasonality of it best of all, so I guess I must say the current month is my favourite :) ...)

Beautiful images Deb! You kept some very interesting pictures aside for this post huh? :-)
Have a happy 2013, buon anno! :-)

January 3, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAlberto

Thanks, much, for the recap in images, Deb. They make the perfect bonus for the pictures and words you've shared during 2012. Happy 2013!

Your garden is one of my favorites, and the photo review tells the story. Lovely!

Your images leave me lost for words .. WOW! I can't wait to return to see what 2013 holds for you.
Happy New Year - Bren

Your year in review is so peaceful. It was so relaxing to just scroll through the photos at leisure and revel in the beauty that is your garden. Thanks for taking the time to cull through your shots from 2012 ... it was definitely worth the effort. You inspire me to try to find the time to do the same :) Happy New Year, Deb.

What an amazing garden! Beautiful photography!

A great idea---I always have photos I love but never have a chance to use. Yours are wonderful especially the first.
