Have you noticed that the pictures of my garden are all close-ups of the flowers. After being inspired Sarah at www.cozycottagecute.com/2012/05/five-ugliest-spots-in-our-backyard.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Cozycottagecute+%28Cozy.Cottage.Cute.%29 and talking to Claudia at www.mockingbirdhillcottage.com/ about reality in blogging, I decided to tell the truth and it truly is a jungle out there.
Last year my knee was so bad that I was unable to garden. I got some help from my honourary nephew, Josh but it was impossible to stem the tide. The neglected garden spread like wildfire with weeds taking over. It was a before scene from The Secret Garden.
These are the views starting at the gate and following down along the garden at the right to the back right corner, including views of the base of the gingko tree and my oval garden with the magnolia.
These photos are the garden on the left of the shed, along the fence to the garden beside the patio and the vegetable garden at the side of the house. This is the reality and while I have already spent 4 or 5 full days on it, I have the whole summer to get it back where it should be. So now you have seen the work in progress and I will keep you up to date with Garden Glimpses. Wish me luck!
