This is Lovely are these the Hardy Marigolds or French 1s Charlie727? :)

Looks just great!

Thanks, the marigolds are not Hardy and I don't believe they're the French. I start annual marigolds from seed every spring. These were a combo of Petite Mixed Colors, Harvest Moon, and Money Moon. They didn't end up being so petite! lol

Amazing flowerbed ! I love your color scheme too. Perfect place to have a wedding, Michelle. Can't wait to see more pics of your garden ! Welcome to GOY.

Fantastic flower bed, Charlieb.

Is there a wedding photo of Michelle with the garden background, please.

Very romantic setting.

Thanks!! Unfortunately I don't have one - photos were taken by the flower beds, but most were filled with family members. lol

Her wedding was a GREAT motivation for us to get stuff done! I finally got the arbor I've wanted for years. : )

In England there are farms where you can 'pick your own' strawberries.

At the wedding, was it a 'pick your own' option for the flower-girls? LOL

They would have been able to select from some beautiful blooms. LOL

Did a few of your bees go missing after the wedding?
Followed the happy couple on their honeymoon?
................even more LOL

and PS. Is that why you had marigolds called Moneymoon?

I'll stop now.

This is gorgeous. The more the better, so colourful. Your acerage looks as if it could well be in Australia, the whole scenery, the, what I detect as orange orchard, perhaps some citrus, the undulating land, even the blue skies. Are you sure you live in Michigan?

Ha, I wish it was in Australia! If my Australian Cattledog were in the photo, you would have really wondered! lol When the snows come tho, yeah I know I'm in MI.

The kids at the wedding did have fun picking flowers, & we also have 'U-Pick' places here. While I have some crabapple trees (in the pic) and a few other fruit trees, mostly I have tons of blackberries out past the backyard area. I've often thought of letting people come & pick blackberries when they're ripe actually, there are so many. Made excellent blackberry jelly this year. : )

wish I had your room and climate-it gets very wet in Wales through the winter-I suppose that's why it's so green1

Thanks! We moved to the country to have the space & view of gardens and trees. There's a lot of work, but worth it!
