You know how I make no claims to be good in the kitchen? Well, I’m only slightly above novice in the flower garden. Yeah, I manage pretty well with pots and planters. But with the larger grounds and beds and stuff,  I’m still a beginner type! Still, just like I thoroughly enjoy a well prepared meal, I ‘m nearly paralyzed by a beautiful garden. I literally (and I understand the meaning of this word unlike some of our newest generation), dream of rose gardens!

Enter ~ Anet Rosette: master gardener residing on one of the corner lots of King Lane. She is one of our royal members! Matter of fact, we crowned her the first Queen of King Lane this past New Year’s Eve (wish I had a photo to share of the coronation.) Which reminds me we promised her a parade! It’s coming your majesty.

As a neighbor, she is adored, and as a  gardener she is revered!

In just about seven short years, she’s transformed a King Lane corner lot from less than basic to breathtaking! Let’s stroll…….

Ever so often as you meander, you’ll find ornamental treasures tucked in and among the shrubbery and flowers of the landscape. Each piece comes with a intriguing “story” of its origin.

Although Anet Rosette’s front door wasn’t featured in a prior blog, The Front Doors of King Lane, it certainly could have been!

She managed to carve out a little seating area, that was formerly a pad of grass.

Here the master is clipping some beauties to share with neighbors! I know this because I was the recipient. You can see what I did with them on my Instagram account!

Gardening is not easy work! I see Anet Rosette out most days of spring and summer planting, pruning, and putzing! With that prized corner lot, so many of us get to enjoy the fruits (flowers?) of her labor.

All in a day’s work. Most definitely, the stuff dreams are made of, literally!

Enjoy Today!

Love y’all,
