These pictures were taken June 14, 2008
The lilac bushes (23 of them) were in bloom and made a very nice backdrop for the rest of the garden. If you noticed the swing, you will see where I spend alot of my time when I am not digging in the dirt.
This spring I took out 3 honeysuckle bushes and 8 huge brown yard bags of a variety of weeds and plants I thinned out. There are still a few carts of dirt to move and the front yard to thin. People keep saying they would love to have some of my perennials, but no one shows up to get them. There are no annuals, as the garden is definitely full and by the end of July will be a jungle.
This is the vegetable garden..... 2 tomatoe plants and 3 green peppers. Oh and a few onion sets. This is certainly all I need. The spring has been unseasonably cool and wet. It seems they are not growing at all, but since the pix were taken a few weeks ago, they have grown alot. Finally we have had some warm weather so give them a growth spurt.
