  1. So beautiful! I love the iris with the water droplets!

  2. Lovely colours from the first picture to the last. Happy gardening Jack !

  3. Jack, I love Lake Trail photo! Beautiful.

  4. Oh, that lake trail is beautiful! How enticing! That beach looks inviting, too!

  5. Beautiful photos! I especially love the formal garden with Lake Michigan as the backdrop. A great spot to read or write or just breathe.

  6. Wow, it is amazing to see beautiful blooms in gardens like in those 'delta-like' surroundings. I seldom see gardens, even in blogs, of mostly annuals without trees nearby. I love those wide angle shots! Thanks for visiting my post earlier.

  7. Very beautiful shots! I'm in love with your lake trail!

  8. Thank you for visiting my blog.

    What a lovely garden you have. I love the lake view. Great pictures :-)

  9. Ein wunderschöner Querschnitt durch das Gartenjahr. Besonders gut gefällt mir der Formalgarten.

  10. Your garden is beautiful and who could argue that that view is spectacular. I love both the wildness of the Lake trail and the restraint of the formal garden. I'd like to see closer shots of the formal garden. More please!

  11. Votre jardin est just MAGNIFIQUE!
    Bonne semaine!

  12. Thank you for visiting my blog! Your garden is beautiful. I like those heaths around your formal garden and a nice view to the water. Are there animals grazing on the heaths in summer? Thickets grow every where if no animals are grazing or we don't mow regularly where I live.
