Taking photos of my garden each year and later looking back on them shows me how far my once sandy ‘beach’ lot has transformed.
This year I have been bitten by the gardening bug. I literally spent the entire month of May, 8+ hours a day, with no days off working in the garden. It’s bloody hard work I tell ya. Countless hours of digging, pulling weeds, composting, planting, laying rocks and stones, cursing, blisters, callouses, sunburns, two back injuries (one gardening related the other a Mountain bike mishap) bug bites and watching with despair as the dogs run off with newly planted flowers and trees ( I kid you not).
Taking in the joys and signs of Spring.
At last the veggie beds are growing. My garden now includes many different types of flowers and even boasts a small meadow tucked away in a back corner. Ground cover is slowly covering those many bare spots (far too many) where the builders’ seed never took. There is still a lot of progress to be made but no one ever said that gardening was a quick thing…it requires an endless supply of patience and I am working on that too. I hope you enjoy this little collage of my garden.
I hope spring is beautiful wherever you are!
