gardens of wyndmoor

I know…pictures of gardens can be…boring.  But I simply could not stop myself from riding around my neighborhood last week with my bike and my camera.  Its been a delightful summer weather-wise and all these plants having been loving it, along with the rest of us.  I know I have.

Wyndmoor is one of those strange little towns that most people don’t know about.  It’s tucked away somewhere between Chestnut Hill and Glenside…Flourtown and Cheltenham.  We don’t have a post-office or a coffee shop or a Target.  But we have lots of quiet, tree-lined streets, bird-filled parks and crackly sidewalks.  And lots of gardens.

happy hostas – these remind my of the ones at my grandmother’s house in Warminster. I just love hostas. Or ‘hosfelds’ as John calls them.

cute cut-out wooden shutters & black-eyed Susan on East Hartwell. This color combo reminds me of Halloween.

    Hi Annie! Beautiful photographs; and of my favorite things… flowers. Oh, the red tubular flowers are Honeysuckle – Alabama Crimson vine. They also come in coral!ReplyCancel
