I enjoy reading the participants of A Tidewater Gardener's yearly Winter Walk-Off meme. Les encourages us to "rise from the couch, cast off that musty Afghan, grab a camera, and get out of the house to show the rest of us what their part of the planet looks like."
This year I decided to join in for the first time. I threw my blanket aside, nudged Mr. Barnaby off the couch, and we headed to Pacific Park. Pacific Park is a beautiful fifty-sixty acre park, two miles from my house. We regularly visit the off leash dog park to support Barnaby's social life. I also have a plot in the community garden and help plan and teach a series of Master Gardener workshops on natural gardening in the Natural Garden Area.
You remember Jamie don't you? I showed you a picture of her last summer.
Let's see if this shot jogs your memory.
Squatting down besides Barnaby is dangerous because he will sit on your lap and down you'll go. Jamie almost fell again during our walk, but she caught herself. Nice catch, Jamie.
Tyrion, Barnaby's best friend, chased him around the park playing rabid rabbit.
Barnaby danced a little jig to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.
Tyrion's tattling on Barnaby digging in the park. A big no-no…Barnaby!
You know Barnaby loves you, when he leans his 175 pounds on you.
Now let's go take a look at the Natural Garden.
The Natural Gardens demonstrate eight different garden styles to help inspire local gardeners.
The Dog Friendly Garden has been a source of inspiration for our backyard.
This plant is definitely an example of wrong plant in the wrong place. It needs to be moved to the back of the garden.
Three moms enjoying an afternoon walk with their babies animatedly chatting about parking regulations. I can't make this stuff up.
When I returned home, I noticed the pink snow of cherry petals agains my neighbors curb.
Thank you for joining me on my walk! Please make sure to visit A Tidewater Garden.
