Open Garden



Our garden will be open the next two weekends - May 8-9 and May 15-16 from 9-5.

The roses are just beginning and I think more will be blooming the second weekend but who knows what the weather will do. This weekend is supposed to be sunny with lower temperatures in the 70s.

If you need directions, just drop me an e-mail.

  3. I usually am in Florence going to yard sales with my sister and sister in law. I have been wanting to bring my sister by to see your garden. We will likely come early afternoon on Saturday. Can't wait to see your garden again.

  6. I just googled the distance, just for the heck of it, and if that Georgia wasn't in the way, you'd be really close.

  7. I would love to visit but I don't have my passport yet and I'm feeling a little driven out over the past few days. :) At least I can see it through the photos!

  8. May the 4th was Star Wars Day but no one had transporters for sale, Phillip- if they were available I would be able to get to your garden for the open days!

    Bet there will be many happy visitors who will fall in love with what you've created.

  12. Phillip - weekends aren't good for me, because i'm rarely in the Shoals area. However, since I work in Muscle Shoals on M-F, i'd like to drop by one evening after work. You think that might be possible? Drop me an email at engineeredgarden@att.net and we'll discuss the details.

  13. Wish I could be there but there's a small issue of 4,500 miles. I'm happy to 'make do' with the photographs. Hope it goes well.

  16. I hope everything goes well for your open garden days. Your garden looks spectacular. I know everyone will enjoy the tour! We really are entering summer, aren't we? Everything here is turning deep green. My spring flowers are gone.

  17. It would be such a treat to walk into your fabulous garden! Lucky folks. I hope you will take pictures... guess that will be hard though ... while you are hosting. How about a walkabout? Is this a fundraiser of some kind? Hope the weather forecast is correct for you Phillip.

  18. I envy the lucky ones who can visit your garden. Good luck, Phillip!
    How how I wish I could disapparate and apparate there!

  19. Its looking magnificent Phillip! Out of curiosity, is yours a warm or cool climate? (I'm afraid I've never made it to Alabama) From this photo it looks like cool plantings, but your other friends' garden in your previous post make it look almost tropical. Its spectacular anyway - best of luck with your open garden!
