I have a morning glory hedge. It has taken off this year and I hope that it grows more next year. It is covering an ugly chain link fence with lots of junk behind it.
I didn't know the centers would come out so bright in the camera. They are so pretty. Funny flowers though, gone by noon.
The rest of the garden needed some major TLC. Here is the long neglected brick walkway fully covered by rogue raspberry vines and other grasses.
I still need to deal with the down spout. I need to try to get it to drain more onto the grass. I looked around and I might get one of those roll out downspouts that unroll when they are full of water, then roll back up again when the water is out. More complex options of course include adding tubing, digging a hole in the middle of the yard put rocks in it and drainage stuff and let the water drain into there. Sigh - water is a big issue. Especially since my basement is done! Yay! So soon I need to get down there and organize what is there.
But onto other issues. The back garden is totally overgrown. Also too much grass, mint and raspberry vines.
Doesn't everything look like it can breath again? I discovered under all the mess that my garlics have started to grow again. I'm not sure what happened but at the end of May they all sort of died. Maybe I'll dig one up and see what it did. You sure can smell it though.
Speaking of food... Last weekend I went up to Aurora, NY - to visit a friend of mine who is an amazing printmaker and book artist. Aurora is a tiny town on the edge of one of the finger lakes, just north of Ithaca.
