2010 Summer Garden

The sunnier side of the yard mid summer.

I was never big on hanging baskets, but gave them a try this year. You can see where I extended the picket fence too.

The pergola in early summer>

Adding powered lights.was a huge deal for me. Always wished for that.

The lights totally change how we relate to the yard in the evenings. It should be awesome this Fall

..I let a conspicuously out of place thistle grow next to the front door, knowing that at some point midsummer, I would routinely see goldfinches harvesting its seeds, like crack cocaine.
