The Cabbage Garden Tour

The Cabbage Garden Entrance

Our main garden here at The Cabbage is always going to be a work in progress.  Mostly due to nature's seasons and cycles but also through our own efforts, it is constantly changing and evolving.  So this garden tour is a journey through some of those changes.

Before we can visit The Cabbage Garden, however, we have to stop off at The Cabbage Garden Shed so I can pick up my gloves and some pruning shears because there is always weeding or trimming to do.

The Cabbage Garden Shed Exterior

I spruced up the exterior of The Cabbage Garden Shed last Summer, click here for full story and more photos.

The Cabbage Garden Shed Interior

The interior of the garden shed was redecorated in 2012.  Click here to see before and after photos.

Okay, now on to the garden.  One of the best places to get a full view of it is from the outside of the fence just behind the garden shed.  Here's a couple photos from that vantage point in Spring:

Clematis and Ballerina Roses are among many flowers that bloom here in Springtime.

Of course, there are a lot of different places to explore and visit within the garden walls.  One of my favorite things to do in Summer is sit on our garden bench or tree swing and watch the bees, butterflies, birds and other wildlife enjoy our flowers and trees.

The Cabbage Garden is also a lovely place to visit in Autumn:

I even venture out for a visit now and then in the winter (click here for photos).

And even though it is a lot of work, it is often difficult to leave.

  1. It's lovely - thank you for the tour! :)

  2. I love your garden pics...and understand the "back to reality" portal. Gardening really does take your mind away from the real world for awhile. Hard work, but relaxing to the mind.
