    Too fast on the garden tour. I wanted to see your milk can, sculpture, various plants. Take it again but slower so we can see everything in your beautiful garden! Nancy

    What beauty! I can hear how happy the birds are in that Eden. Do you ever bring some handwork outside and just sit, stitch, and soak it all in? Thanks for sharing that video.

    Tim, absolutely paradaisical but for the absence of bearded iris. I need to send you some bearded iris. This WILL be the last summer for my bed, I have to break them up. Tell Teddy to keep the iris borers on your other property; the bearded iris can fill out your some of your new garden. I’ll send selection soon.

      the last little clump of them in the old garden are turning to mush right now …..they are relentless

        Oh, can’t we try again?! If you clean those out of your old garden, my new ones will come clean, soaked in bleach solution (they’re clean already these days) and can go in the new garden… I’m shipping some rhizomes to Wisconsin and those in Indiana were magnificent this year — we don’t want Pure Michigan to be left out!

        🙂 once all the old plants are gone I think it should be safe to try again……

    Oh my… I love peonies, they are my favorite flower. Could easily be in England with those roses. What fabulous gardens you have created! To me, it’s amazing how the plants come back every year with your coaxing and hard work. I know that you add each year, and the new garden is already coming along nicely. Love the iris, delphinium, hosta…. A bit of it all! That’s the gardening look that I adore. Loved the video.

    Wonderful tour!

    I’m so impressed not only with your lovely plants, but how weed-free everything is.

  8. Lindsay says:

    I would love to have this tour every week to see the progress of the blossoms through the season. It is hard for me to believe that these vibrant plants came out of the snow! Thank you for this video.

  9. Anne Kasten says:

    Spectacular! and I loved hearing the birds. Congratulations and thank you so much for the inspiration!

  10. Thanks for the tour–I’m looking forward to the slower version with flower IDs! I have lots of Bearded Iris–have not heard of Iris borers–are they going to follow the Japanese beetles to Colorado? Hope not!!!

    Oh, how I’d love to sit in the yard and work on my applique. Perhaps I could borrow Teddy? Thank you for sharing your paradise.

    Your peonies and roses look great. I am wondering when you prune the roses? Of course in Texas we are long past the spring flush of flowers that you are now enjoying.

    • timquilts says:

      Im Michigan I have a very different situation than Texas…..the winter does most of the pruning for me. In early spring I just cut off what died back over the winter ….the only other real pruning I do is to dead head ….and to cut off anything that gets too out of control

    Loved hearing the birds in the background, you have a special place there.

  14. Ginney says:

    It’s beautiful Tim. Your roses are wonderful! It’s amazing what you’ve done with that second yard in such a short time.

  15. Becky in VA says:

    I love seeing your beautiful gardens. (Two yards, right?)

  16. Carline Anthony says:

    I love your English roses. I am getting one next year! Beautiful gardens, thanks for sharing.
