A Full Year Of Tours

I almost forgot that it was time to conduct another tour of Garden on Sherlock Street.  This makes the twelfth tour!  I made it a whole year.  The photos have been very helpful in showing me areas that need new plants to perfom at certain times of year.  You can always find the tours with the link under Pages in the right hand column.

I'm continuing with the same layout.  Plus, I've added a photo that includes the berm and the two raised vegetable beds.  I thought it would be interesting to focus on the vegetables too.

Go back one post to take the March Tour!


  1. Congrats on your full year of garden tours! Gardens look so bare and kind of sad in the winter. I think that is one of my depression pushers in the winter months. That Russian Sage really takes over! I have some larger spots that need something such as this. I should add this sage to those spots as it would really fill in the emptiness. I see I am not the only one that breaks up larger pieces of stone, concrete, etc.

  2. I can't wait to see it all in full bloom, you have so many wonderful spots where I'm sure your plants would be very happy!


  3. Looks like you have been very busy getting ready for spring--it will be fun to see it all come into bloom very soon!

  4. I'm impressed! I keep intending to do these photos showing progress over the year, and I keep forgetting. Good for you for sticking with it!

    I took photos of the bare garden to help me realize how much plants can grow in one season. The comparisons are amazing. And, seeing the bare garden helps me figure out where I need evergreens or more garden art. :-)
    The Russian Sage is very low maintenance. Now that I've cut it, I won't do anything to it unless it creeps up somewhere I don't want it. I dig out a little each year and cut back a few shoots that lean over my lily of the valley.
    Gotta recycle when you can!

    Oh yes. I try to plant in every place I can.

    In just one month, the photos will look much different.

    I have each "section" in a separate folder on my computer. It's fun to flip through them and watch the garden grow through the year.
