My Backyard
This is an overhead picture of my main garden (click on the photo to see it better). I took this picture the day after my graduation party. I might post another later once the plants grow a little more.

I have been working on this garden for over seven years. It originally was a weedy lawn area. I unfortuately don't have progression photos, so you will just have to use your imagination.

This garden only takes up less than 1/6th of the entire yard, but I have five other gardens in other parts of the yard, too. We also have an area about 60'X90' of lawn to play in.

You may be jealous now. ;)

Wow, that's It's really nice. I'm all a-jealous: my yards have no room for gardens or anything like that. When I get my own place in a few years, I'm going to enlist your help for design, that's for sure.

Great garden. I have eighty acres and only dream of having something as small and lovely as this!

Add me to your clients list!
This is exactly what I need to do- a section at a time.
I showed the pics to Mr. SB and showed him it really can be done!

Jealous doesn't even begin to describe my feelings. Not only will I immediately cease and desist posting pictures of my pathetic backyard but I may even close down my blog where I brag to the entire internet about my pathetic backyard. I'm going to go hide now.

That's a nice tract of land you've got there, Sylvana. (Bob, points if you get the reference!!!)

Also, backyard! HA!!! I got nothin, but I DO have a Beer Garden in my neighborhood and once you're two pints in, the lack of flowers is totally not noticable.
