Please join me for a walk around my yard. I'll show you the good, the bad and the ugly.
We just finished planting our vegetable garden. We do raised beds. It's not very big, but it serves our purpose well.
|This is from today. I realized you couldn't see the whole garden.|
|This is last summer. I haven't planted flowers in the wheelbarrow yet.|
Next stop my shade garden.
|The primrose are blooming now. In a few weeks more plants will be blooming.|
|Can you see the little white leaves coming up? This is my White Hostas.|
This White Hostas is in my shade garden. I planted it 3 years ago. The deer kept eating it down as soon as it would come up. I started spraying it with liquid fence and keep your fingers crossed that it does great this year.
|Tulips next to sun porch. I wish they would last longer too. Most of my other tulips are gone.|
We planted this Japanese Red Maple just a few days ago. I've always wanted one, but didn't want to pay $100 for one. I found this one at Aldi's Food Market for only $12.99. I figure if it doesn't make it, I'm only out $13 bucks not $100. It's not very big, but it will grow. I have faith.
This is weed heaven. Nothing is blooming right now. The daffodils were beautiful. I still have to mulch. I have dug this area up twice, put down layers and layers of weed cloth to no avail. Last year I planted a lot of perennials hoping as they grow they will choke out the weeds. I weed and weed and weed and still cannot get it under control. I have a new plan that I'll disclose at a later date. No, I'm not going to torch it, though that is tempting.
Thanks for taking a walk with me.
