Why I was in Milford at all was Brandon’s fault. He lost his wallet over the weekend and needed to replace his driver’s license which could only be gotten at three locations on certain days of the week and yadi-yada-yada we ended up in Milford on Thursday.
This wasn't really a problem though. Justin goes to PCDC (picture above) on Thursdays so I just took him all the way there instead of just to Lords Valley so he could take the bus which takes him to Milford. Granted it is another twenty minuted further, but it just seems more tolerable when you can say you killed two birds with one stone...not that I'd ever kill birds with stones!
Anyway, While Brandon was inside waiting and waiting and waiting, I decided to walk around and look at the nicely manicured gardens. These are rare in the Poconos. What with deer all over the place trying their best to eat all you plant, most people give up on nice gardens. The deer population in Milford must be down some.
Love the lush greens! Look at the newly placed mulch too. Am I the only one who sees the beauty in dark rich mulch? Probably!
These geraniums--yes, that is their real botanical name. I'll tell you about the "fake" geraniums some other time-- are better known as Crane's bill. I adore how it forms a perfect compact ball of foliage with a smattering of blooms just starting. Lovely!
When I saw this Scotch broom in full, marvelous bloom I longed for the one that got away. Actually it just up and died one particularly rough winter. And here I thought Scots of all sorts were tough!
I thought this little roadside garden was such a charming sight.Everything here flowed together and around each other so well.Rocks, smooth, large and round were a nice touch.
Pink Dogwoods everywhere here! So pretty.For whatever reason I can't grow this kind of Dogwood.I have Kousa Dogwoods and yellow-twig dogwoods but they just aren't these lovely "regular" trees.Perhaps I'll try again.
The lilacs were almost spent here and they're in full flower at my place.
Well, that will have to do for my Milford walk. I rather enjoyed it and I hope you did too.
