As many of you know, I bought this house last summer but didn't get to move into until June this year.
Unfortunately, because I've been busy unpacking and getting ready for a new job, the garden is being studiously ignored this year. Next year, it will get my full attention, but this year, I'm resisting it's call so I can get everything else done.
None the less, there are some beautiful little finds out there that I had to take pix of, for posterity sake.
The raspberries have been trying to take over about a quarter of the yard. They grow like weeds!
There's also a pretty little rose bush beside the house. It's a keeper.
Also a few hollyhocks in various spots around the property.
And this lovely blue flower that I have seen before but have no idea what it's called. If anyone knows what it is, please feel free to leave me a clue in the comments.
There's also a few dead things that need to be removed, but like I said, next spring will have to suffice.
The only thing I'm trying to get done this summer is the building of a new fence.
This is proving problematic, though, as construction is very short handed in this province so I may not be able to get one built until late September. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
Hope you're all having a great weekend.
Happy gardening, M
