A Garden Post

My aunt asked me if my garden is really as beautiful as it seems from the photos on my blog.  It really is.  Right now it is a riot of colour.  In every direction I look there are flowers in bloom.  Here is my east raised bed.  This one has vegetables in it too.  You can see the pole beans growing up the stakes.


And here is my west raised bed.  This one has mostly perennial flowers in it.  I love this flower bed.  I have lots of lilies and delphiniums.



And here is a shot of the west flower bed.  It is not a raised bed.  That makes it more difficult for me to work in.   But next year I will move some of the plants that are getting crowded out.  I will leave some of the plants that need less work.  There is a peach tree in there too.  It had two peaches on it this year.  Our spring was too early and the blossoms came out when it was still too cold for the wasps and bees to be out.   If I had thought of it, I could have pollinated some of the blossoms by hand.
