Well, I’ll get back to you!
I have a wrap around porch in the front of my house. It’s just a strip that follows the porch for about three feet wide and is mostly planted in perennials. Every flower is either purple yellow or white and I’m sticking to it. Over the years, I’ve developed some open areas that need some filling in. Isn’t it always the case that some perennials spread like weeds and you have to keep pruning them back while others last a few years then die off!
I’m not at home at the moment and of the four packets of seeds I bought, the only one I remember for sure is the annual yellow marigolds! . I think I bought the yellow poppies? I remember debating it…I’ll look later and come back!
We have a small corner garden in the back yard…and I mean small! I usually just plant a couple of potato plants and a cherry tomato with chives along the wall. Off my back porch, we have a fish pond and I’ve been letting my strawberries ramble along against the rocks that surround the pond. Strawberries love to ramble and I love letting them! We live with an open bird preserve behind our back yard so the wildlife usually gets most of the berries…that’s ok with me…I’ll share.
We don’t have much problem with deer though I have seen them in the preserve. I think because we have a picket fence bordering our property that our dog likes to…ummm…water…the deer don’t bother jumping the fence. Rabbits, squirrels and raccoons often visit. I had an eucalyptus Bush that rabbits almost destroyed last winter so we placed a border around it…it may recover?
Our homeowners association originally…years ago…required we have three trees on our properties…one must be a flowering tree…so we were cursed with a flowering crabapple in the back yard which is now fully mature and bug infested! It’s beautiful when flowering and a pain in the rear the rest of the time. The squirrels love the apples…my husband hates them so we have an apple chucking contest every august to get rid of a lot of them . The grandkids love it! Everyone gets a prize…some cheap little toy…usually squirt guns…which starts another fun event !
So, tell me about your garden now and future plans!
