Our gardens

Before we left for Hawaii, I asked Bill to make a structure that would allow less sunlight to hit the potted plants on the plant benches in our backyard (he enjoys making things for me!). After much thought and sketching, we decided to go with a structure that matched our deck. He finished the new "shade" last night! See the first 2 photos. The lattice roof allows the plants to get direct sunlight, but not so much that they suffer in summer heat. It's quite nice to sit in our backyard now! I'm so not a sit-in-the-sun person!

That's Jasmine outside the screen door to our backyard, and Cleo peeking through the screen. The picture tells the story: Jaz thinks she's an outdoor cat, but she doesn't go much further than that from the door; Cleo is much more comfortable looking outside than being outside.

The plants growing on the fence side of our backyard this morning before I left for work. I love the randomness and bunches of color!

Our front yard. One plant in the right side planter is out of control. It's grown shoots and has nearly filled up the entire planter box. There are even a few shoots growing in the grass outside the planter box. I'm gonna have to remove the plant - all of the shoots - before the yard is overtaken!

It all looks great! Makes mine seem less labor intensive!
