A Beautiful Spot

I was taking pictures in the yard and came upon a beautiful vignette.

I really didn’t know how lovely it was until I saw the photo. The rhododendron marks the edge of the Children’s Garden we established last year.

We had transplanted the pale yellow azaleas from the front of the house and added daffodils and lily of the valley (which bloomed early in spring), iris, and yellow day lilies, and daisies.

A place to rest.

Everything seems to be very happy and healthy in this partially shaded garden.

How does your garden grow?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
