I Spy a Potager

August 14th, 2011

When Mr Chiots and I are out driving around, either locally or far and wide, I notice gardens – especially edible gardens or potagers. A few weeks ago we traveled to Indiana for a video project (more on that to come later) and I spotted this beautiful potager down the street from my friend’s home. It’s very well done, small, neat, well organized, bountiful, and very beautiful. Since my camera is always at my feet while we’re away from home, I snapped some photos to share with you.

Whoever cultivates this garden is doing a beautiful job. I’m sure it brings them much joy. A hearty thanks goes out to all people who cultivate their edible gardens out where people can see them as they drive by – it certainly bring enjoyment to many of us.

Do you look at gardens when you’re out and about? Have you ever stopped to take photos?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
