SB Chamberlin Neighborhood

Each garden has its own personality, every flower, every vegetable is special.

Guardian Swans

Secrets told are safely stored
 in this magical ancient incense holder.

Game of marble anyone?

Mint Julep coming right up. 

Pollinator delight.

Rose of Sharon rescued from an unwanted home.
And doing quite nicely here. 

Downy woodpecker.

One plant can produce over 100,000 seeds.

Allowing plants to go to seed 
offers harvest for birds in the fall and winter.
 This woodpecker may be 
 harvesting the weevils that feed on the mullein seeds.

What do community and gardening have in common? Both are instilled with commonly shared challenges, and an abundance of caring through sharing.  Happy Gardening.  Bernie
