Carman is a lovely town, and we were impressed with the gardens and landscaping. The garden tour showcased 6 gardens of varying types, but as we drove through the streets, we noticed many beautiful, well-kept yards.
Below is smokebush, which is not normally hardy in our climate, but one garden had 3, and we were so envious (in a good sort of way!)
Roses were in full bloom...
Someone had a petunia "tree"
The garden below was a profuson of color, randomly planted.
Lots of hanging pots in one garden, and each one appeared to be perfectly shaped..
Someone had a rustic concrete pad with large log slices for seating...quite nicely suited to the locale, right on the edge of a corn field.
We are enjoying a period of very hot weather right now, quite different from the last two summers, If the gardens are watered, they do well...tomatoes are loving it!
