  1. Isn't it amazing just how fast things grow in the spring? Your yard looks like such a pleasant place to spend time. I hope you get to use that picnic table often!

  3. Ah, spring has sure sprung, hasn't it? Your gardens are looking great.

    What are your trees/shrubs in the side yard? Their form looks interesting above the perennials.

    1. The shrub in my side garden is Three-Leaf Sumac 'Rhus trilobata.' I got it from High Country Gardens. The awesome fall color it is suppose to get hasn't happened for me. I don't know if it doesn't get enough sun there or it's the soil or what, but it is an interesting shape and I do prune away branches that reach out into the path. I like how it fits in the space.

  4. I love the fact that you have no grass in your backyard. I seem to spend an awful lot of time edging my gardens and digging out grass. Beautiful spot.

    1. Thanks. Someday, I hope to lose the grass in the front garden too.

  10. I am glad I made it here for the tour. Green is looking good there! Do you have bachelor buttons across from your vegetable garden? I don't have as many this year, but mine come up every year right in my vegetable garden. I'm thinking they may be considered invasive in some places, too, but my mother-in-law originally planted these there, and I am not going to stop growing them.
