Best of 2015

From the post with the most Google +s

We are fast approaching the end of year, so I thought I would bid 2015 goodbye, with a "Best of" that features your favourite posts, based on a number of factors including reader page views.

Drum roll please...


Your Favourite Private Garden is pretty much a tie between two Nova Scotia gardens: 



Donna Ever's woodland garden: The Shady Woodland & the Gate of Lost Marbles.


Your Favourite Problem Solver would go to this post: More Ideas for that Narrow Space between Suburban Homes.


Most Popular Public Garden goes to the Rock Garden in Truro Nova Scotia.




Not far behind it, in second place, was this post: 10+ Favourite Shrubs.


Your Favourite Project was this hydrangea wreath.


Your Favourite Post Featuring my Garden among a number of others: Core Mid-Summer Plants and Pretty Combinations.


The post that received The Most Google +s: A trip to the Countryside.


The Post with the Most Comments was the one in which I wrote about the heartbreak of Rusty's tragic loss. My family and I were really touched by all your kind expressions of sympathy. 

A close second was this post, with our other two Shelties playing in the sprinkler last summer: Two Crazy Dogs in a Garden.

Salvia 'Cathedral Sky Blue'

I have lots of new posts in the works, but would love to hear from you. What topics would you love to see me cover in 2016?

Happy new year! All the best to you for 2016!

  10. I am new to your blog so you may have covered this before. I would love to see gardens done on a small, limited budget.............or more home garden tours. I wonder if there are ways to "fancy up" chain link fencing............
    Thankyou for your great, idead filled blog!

    1. Thanks Kim, I'll keep your ideas in mind. To fancy up a chain link fence I would plant a vine that might cover the surface and hide the metal fencing. There are any number of ivy type vines to choose from. Here is a post on dressing up fencing that you may find interesting:

    1. Thanks Mindy. I didn't show my garden much last year. There were too many non-related projects in the works making for one big mess in the yard. I will try to feature it more often in 2016.

  12. I so enjoyed your photos. A wonderful change from my daily view of several inches of snow and sleet. Your dogs are lovely, collies have always been my favorite breed. I'm sorry for your loss. Wishing you a wonderful new year and looking forward to your lovely photos in 2016.

  15. Sending to you my best wishes for a lovely and happy new year. Your wonderful photography and the breath taking beauty of the gardens has often lifted my spirits and inspired me. If only I could get such luscious vegetation here in Virginia, LOL. Thank you again for sharing and including us in your gardening adventures.
