Here's a few pictures - I don't have enough space in my 'realms' to add more - so just these until I go do some cleanup:

Back door hanging baskets


Bearded Irises



Siberian Irises

Part of the problem was that those were huge!

Fixed hopefully:


This is the bigger image of that siberian iris bed...
It's a whole lot sunnier here now, because we cut down a huge Black Walnut that used to shade this garden.



Spread me you lazy ass!


Nascent bed of impatiens


vinca in the tool shed flower box


My roses about to POP!


Back up on roses:


Down the same bed line a bit - more roses, daisies, rhodys, azaleas

Veggie garden planted! Still waiting for beans to sprout...




The herb garden. There's also a bunch of raspberries and blackberries in here waiting for me to prep a bed for them elsewhere.



Start of the beds around the pool - these are a few young annuals near some lillies and hollyhocks and a clematis. There's a rose in the back there.



My one pink rose. It's sideways. Sorry not going back now to fix it. Tilt your head please.



Lupines and Foxgloves



Peonies just starting. A volunteer siberian iris back there!


Here's one of the new fence I just built by myself on the back fence line. The two tall posts you can see still uncut are the gate, which I haven't finished yet. But the pool is secure.

Wow.

What a great place. How different your life is than it was not so long ago, huh?

It's been a pleasure to watch. I'm glad you shared it, my friend.

My peonies are already done. I love them and need more.
