|Seriously neglected backyard terraces|
|Terraced gardens & grapevines...what a "before" mess! Ugh!!|
|Much better Backyard gardens "after" all the work....|
|Lillies just starting to bloom! Woo HOO!|
|We added Solar Fence Post Caps in copper...they light up at night...super COOL!|
THIS was the year we had to do it. Soooooo, we started on the middle terrace and pulled all the weeds and roto-tilled it, and added some soil amendment to it. Then we started our summer garden after all the snow in May melted. We had snow until the end of May! We had a very late start to Spring this year!
|gardening stuff....just getting ready to do all that WORK!|
|One of the little loves of my life, my granddaughter Josie! She just turned 2!|
We had put in lots of fruit trees years back and they are finally starting to produce....not lots of stuff mind you...maybe a dozen fruits per tree....but it's yummy and very fascinating to watch those trees just do their "thang".
I have a big selection of gardening gloves. I like to use them whenever I'm weeding so I don't destroy my fingernails too badly. I have some washable cheaper ones I use when I'm watering or in wet mud. Then I just throw them in the laundry bin. I think I've got about 7 pairs of gloves now. It does help me want to go out and weed the yard if I have nice tools.
|Ya gotta have some wind chimes.....|
|We added flowers under the deck for he first time too...Hydrangeas in the SHADE!!!|
|The garden looks a WHOLE lot better here in the after picture... we've got tomatoes too!|
|Here's how it looks now....its fun to go out and BBQ again! Woopie!|
