My garden is just lovely this year. I think it’s doing well because it had so much so cover this past winter and because I actually got out there and tidied it up and did quite a bit of garden maintenance work this spring. I know last spring I was feeling really ill and I just couldn’t get myself motivated to get outside and do a lot of garden work all at once.See how it’s paying off?
This is just a small portion of my garden. These daylilies and astilbe are in what I call the oval which separates the patio area near the house from the back lawn.
This is what my backyard looked like on May 1st.
It isn’t spectacular but it’s neat and tidy and shows lots of promise. The plants have grown in the past week too, plus new ones have come up so the raised garden beds look even fuller now. Click on the photo to see a large image in my flickr account if you want to see more details.
Happy Mothers Day to all the moms out there.
