This garden was an untended blank yard with a few trees and scraggly bushes when we moved in. During the past 5 1/2 years that we have lived here, I have been working in fits and starts to make it beautiful and fitting to my personality. This is the first time I have had a place that was all my own to work on. It is overwhelming at times, especially when you throw kids into the mix. But I am reminded whenever I take the time to work on the garden, how much I enjoy it and how fulfilling the labors are.
Following are some of the photos I captured today. The light was golden at the end of the afternoon.
