The backyard is filling in. To see what's around the next corner, you have to travel there. While not completely happy with the plant choices, I do like the effect. Especially on cool summer mornings. It's 64 degrees. Brrrr.
Looking down the hill towards the Crape Myrtle bed. The gully is beyond.
To the left, the lower potager beds with my flopping tomatoes that never got staked. The cool temperatures have allowed them to finally set fruit. I am disappointed so far.
The shrub island is on the left. The crape myrtle bed is front right. The meadow lies beyond.
Parallel to the house, looking up the hill, there are butterfly bushes in the shrub island. The driveway border is on the left.
My favorite path in the perennial bed. I opened this one up last winter. The grass is soft. The plantings are tall. It's a great escape even in the heat of the day.
The high today should reach the mid 80s. I plan to spend some time working on the last coat of paint in the hall and the toekicks in the kitchen. A trip to the lake is also on the agenda.
