JQ at Honors day at the Arkansas Governors Mansion

I love to tour other gardeners’ gardens.  That is one of the things I love about this blog world.  I can see what and how people are growing things and what they are harvesting.  I get a lot of inspiration from it.  I have a couple beautiful gardens along my commute.  I currently am suffering from major tomato envy from one garden along my drive that has knee-high, full tomato plants that are loaded with blooms.

I'm glad the Governor and his lovely wife were able to color coordinate with us!

We got the privilege of touring the beautiful gardens at the Arkansas Governor Mansion recently.  JQ was invited to attend an Honors breakfast with the governor along with all the top academic achieving high seniors in the state.

The mansion was beautiful.  The flower and rose gardens were breath-taking.  Farmer Rick and I found ourselves wondering toward the vegetable garden at the back of the property.  It was a lovely raised bed garden.  The design and use of space was amazing.  It was planted full of early Spring vegetables.  The garden gates said it was cared for by local master gardeners.

  1. I love seeing other gardens as well as it inspires me! That veggie garden looks great!!! We are just entering our planting season. It was 90 degrees here over the weekend (very hot and early for that!!) and Wednesday we are going to see a 38 degree day. Hoping all that I have planted will tolerate the extreme differences in temperatures!
