I've spent several days this week, including today, working in back to clear the overgrowth. Every fall my vision for the garden changes and I rework things to bring it closer to what I see in my mind. The back gardens are my most personal gardens: I let myself play and make frequent changes because I enjoy the process as much as I do the results.
|I walked out with the camera and took a shot from the dining room patio.|
|Then I walked over to the gate for the usual views.|
|Lots of bare earth in the back bed, it's true ... I'll scatter Toadflax, Larkspur and Poppy seeds in the next week or two.|
|The fireplace wall bed will also be seeded with linaria and perhaps some larkspur. Alyssum and Violas will provide groundcover.|
