Welcome to a small part of my yard!
My husband and I enjoy working on our little corner piece of
property. We have tried over the last 8 1/2 years to bring back
a yard that once was owned by the president of our local
years ago, but had been left to turn into weeds.
Only a small portion was visible when we purchased our Home.
We were fortunate that there were lots of
tulip bulbs and daffodils that popped that first Spring when we
moved in. They sort of gave us an outline for what once was.
So I thought I would begin with a gazing ball
that I added as you enter into our backyard.
my newly acquired bird feeder that I purchased at
the Salvation Army for only $4.99. It is made of a
heavy green speckled metal, so far the birds love it
and the squirrels haven't been able to
get to the food.
from place to place and divided in my yard.
Thru the years, because they have not been pruned properly
they have grown quite woody, which makes it hard to make a
bouquet with them. But, we have been working on that and they
seem to be responding quite well! They smell wonderful!
Where we are located, we are a little behind in the growing season.
The small purple flowers you see is from the myrtle
that is growing around our yard. And the brownish stuff
you see in the back will be about a 12 foot ornamental grass
by the end of summer. It is quite prickely
to prune back, but adds wonderful privacy
from our "too close" neighbors!
weeks ago at my local market. They have not been bothered at all
by the cooler weather we have been getting....
including frost the last 2 nights! We are just getting to work
on our yard this year, so there is more to see in the future!
Thanks for stopping by and I would love
to hear about your gardens in your yard!
