Spring Pictures (alot of them)
Last year was a difficult year which led to many things going wrong in the garden. My fence and arbor got pulled down from the weight of the roses. My beds were full of the kind of grass with long runners on it so I had to dig them up, you know take out all the plants, dig up the beds and them put them back. Another arbor rotted and fell over. So much of back porch wood rotted because I had so many things too close to the house. We had the porch fixed and everything else is a work in progress. And that was the easy part! I had to deal with the loss of my sister, brother and dog of 17 years. Why that makes the garden problems a"piece of cake"! OK, enough about that.
Here are some pictures:
This is one bed full of that weedy grass and in the background you can see the fence on the ground. The wooden arbor was laying in a pile somewhere. April 9, 2011
It's getting there! The fence is up with a new arbor and gate. April 29, 2011
