Peep told me my yard looked like a war zone

Do you remember a while back that I was going to carve my self a bit of
space so that this war zone would not get to me?

I love old rusty things

this bamboo was already here, I added the trellis for a backdrop

Remember my hubby thinking my sundial needed sun?

I may have too much shade for roses..they don't seem to be blooming 
maybe they don't like 106 degrees

always a rock cairn

these are from spilled sunflower seeds

4 things you must have for a bird habitat

the bamboo is spaced evenly on the other side of the space

marigolds are just the best

I looked down today and had a tiny praying mantis on my arm
they used to scare me to death, but I love them now
lots of butterflies and moths too

facing the wall

my Hobby Lobby lanterns I got on the day I was supposed to be shopping for my 
mother of the bride dress

a little gnome peeking from behind the knockout roses

petunias in my window box

yes...a teeny tiny little space over in the shady corner

dang the reality
I don't have a dog so this makes me real mad!

Those self sown sunnies are lovely and seem to love the position even if by accident. I'd spill a few more for next year.

I'm not even going to mention the 'gift' on your lawn, oops too late!

I'm cracking up at the poo! Your space has been soiled....aaarrrggghhh!
I'm a fan of happy little marigolds and petunias. Enjoy your pretty little place. :)

Of course you put a picture of poop in your yard - love it! We all have thorns somewhere in the garden.

I had to chuckle about the roses not liking 106 degrees and I'm loving the sunflowers from spilled seeds!
Have a great night.
