The Back Yard

I ran across this poem recently and identified with it as my gardening style. I love to watch things GROW and hate to tame them by cutting them back. It is a relaxed style that I fear is not being admired by prospective house buyers. I may need to conform more and that pains me....

I have a garden of my own

But so with roses overgrown

And lilies, that you would it guess

To be a little wilderness.

ANDREW MARVELL (1621-1678)

Dan & I are enjoying many dinners and delightfully relaxing moments here. We will enjoy it while we have it.

All your garden plants look like they are doing wonderfully well. Enough rain and great temps, huh?
