What a difference a month and a half makes in a garden. We had a late spring this year and many things did not get in the ground till mid -May to early June. It will be July 4th tomorrow and there is not even sweet corn yet! I took pictures in mid May and went out and took some pictures today. It is amazing how fast things change.
Then: The first two pictures are the front of the house. I do not like the bushes in front of the house most of the year, but they are pretty in the spring. The flowers in the pots are loving the weather that we have been having.
I put a new perennial and rose bed on the east side of the garage. Perennials look so sad the first year they are planted if you leave the space recommended between them. I filled in the spaces with annuals. I just finished this bed last week.
