One reason we bought the house was the yard.
The lady who owned the house before us was an avid gardener, and she put in a beautiful perennial garden. She loved planting so much in fact, that we are still in awe of how much she managed to put in. It eventually got to be a bit much for her, and by the time we "inherited" the garden, it was horribly overgrown. Vines covered rose bushes and trees. Ground cover covered --- everything. The first summer, we discovered we had 19 rose bushes.
We also have at least 6 different varieties of daylilies, which are about to come up.
July should also bring hosta flowers. We already had foxglove, the wisteria in early spring, and I think I showed you the peonies.
I am hoping the Rose o' Sharon will bloom soon, so I can get some shots of it for you.
Oh, and here's a photo of the latest pair of socks I finished. Crafty Girl snagged these (and I'm glad!)
I have no idea why this came out fuzzy! They were even holding still, unlike the flowers which were swaying in the wind yesterday.
The sock yarn I used is Austermann Step. The soft one which has aloe vera and jojoba oil in it. I used size 1 needles on these, but would go up to a 2 next time probably.
