Hi all,
I just found this slide show that I started in May and forgot about. It has pics of my garden in Jan 2010 and then in spring. I hope I haven't posted it already...

Wow! Just absolutely breath-taking!
Love seeing the transformation from winter to spring.
Thank you for sharing.
You must have a hard time using your hands. You are obviously all "green" thumbs.

Just beautiful Renee. Thanks for sharing.
You definately have design skills. I could never do that.
You already know I love Sam and the Brug.

Absolutely stunning! Lots of inspiration to help me create our sideyard garden.

I didn't see any PVC pipe above ground... is that still a future project, or did I just miss it amongst all the breathtaking beauty?

Another question, if you don't mind: What is the wire used for on top of the soil in the raised beds?

I can't stop thinking about your pictures, and the inspiration they gave me....

Hi Jenn,
Thank you for the compliments. I live for them :)

I paint the above-ground pvc flat dark brown, so it is difficult to see. The plants grow over it too.

The raised beds...
They have wire UNDER them, for the gophers, wire ON them for the cats, chickens, opossums, and raccoons, and wire OVER them for the birds, squirrels and rats. My veggie beds look like a gulag for plants.

Renee
