I spent some time in the garden today. I honestly was hoping that it would rain. I know that would interfere with a lot of holiday plans but there were really no “April Showers” this year and May has been just as dry. It was however a great day to garden.
My garden is always a work in progress. I could never be the gardener that gets a designer to plan the entire garden and plants it all at once. Gardens evolve. The plants tell me a lot about how happy they are where I have planted them. If they aren’t doing well the get moved or removed and I try something else. Each year I add more garden and have less grass.
In 2011 I posted all my garden pictures on a separate page. It is fun to look back at how the garden has changed since then. see that page here https://timquilts.com/garden-journal/
I purchased a few new plants that went in today.
I moved a few roses because over time the spots they were in became shaded.
I had a robin right next to me while I was digging. He was very interested in the worms I was unearthing.
Teddy spent most of the time patrolling the yard
Here is the back yard. (click pictures to enlarge)
The front garden is filling in. Just a few weeks ago it was pretty barren looking.
Back to work on all the quilt backlog 🙂
Happy Memorial Day
