31 Days of Garden Tours - Day 2


Continuing the tour I shared in yesterday's post.  This is part of the Secret Garden Tour in Titusville/Mims. 

As we left the pond area, here are the views as we headed out toward the vegetable garden. 








Isn't this huge stag-horn fern amazing?  I love her use of statues and birdbaths throughout the garden.   The aqua-colored roof is the first glimpse of the potting shed.  The winding path will take us there.


This sign was enlightening.  Just beyond is the potting shed and vegetable garden.


Wouldn't you love to have such a potting shed?  I love the sunny yellow paint.

This is the gate that leads to the vegetable garden. We couldn't go in, of course, but enjoyed seeing such a lush and thriving garden.  Growing vegies in Florida is a real challenge.



Such a whimsical, inviting entrance.

Here is the vegetable garden.  I like the statue, and the fake owls.  They're supposed to work like scarecrows to keep birds out.  It must work, from the look of the crops.




Do you see that rich, black soil?  Trust me, that is not "Florida" soil.  Florida soil is pure sand.  There lies the secret to their lush vegetable patch -- enriched with good dirt, and probably some cow manure, too.  My husband and I have really worked on our soil, but it doesn't look this rich.  All I can say is, "Wow"?

There is still much more to see in this garden.  Come back tomorrow to see the tiki hut and outdoor kitchen area.

Blessings to you!
