Our backyard garden

| 1 Comment

Above are photos of the plants and flowers in our backyard (taken May 6).
While I did work in our gardens last year and I even took some photos, I never got around to posting about it. In summary, I pulled out the 9 rose bushes in the backyard, gave the 4 climbing roses to Paula, and put the 5 non-climbing rose varieties in containers so I could place them where the sun shines more.

I didn't realize how much getting snagged and scratched by the thorns bothered (annoyed!) me until I removed them and put other plants in their place! It's a delight to see the very full green vine with clumps of purple flowers from the kitchen window! I also love the bunches of colored flowered in front of the vines.

As you can see, purple is one of my favorite colors! Red, yellow, orange, and green set it off just right!
