I took a bunch of photos this morning before leaving for work, just for you!
I think I’ll start with pictures of the garden, since that changes every day.
For reference, here’s where we were on June 16th, the last time I photographed it.
I took some other seemingly random photos of the garden, but they really did have a purpose. You see, we literally had a 7′ tall, 1″ diameter tree growing out of one of the lilac bushes. I had cut it down to the ground last year, probably around this time, so it grew 7 feet in 12 months! Crazy! asked me to send him a leaf so he could identify it, so I dug around in the yard waste bin this morning before work (it’s trash pick-up day) and found one. Then I took some pictures of the tree we have that’s growing out of the fence (also cut down last year, also not giving up on life) so he could help out with that one. This is what happens when you don’t weed often enough (I blame the former owner and the year the house was vacant).
There’s still significant pruning and weeding to be done before I can show off our yard this year, but we’ve made major progress.
Don’t worry, I saved some pics for tomorrow. 🙂
