After the hard work of the late spring it was a real delight to come out of the house one evening and see everything looking so lush and fresh. I know it's not Better Homes & Gardens or anything like that (they would've taken the garden hose out of their photos!) but it still looks beautiful to me and I'm very grateful to Mr. Quimby for providing all of the manual labor !
|Hydrangeas - planted about five years ago|
|Hydrangeas and the NEW walking path Mr. Q made this year. Our neighbors THREE sheds/garages are in the background.|
|New raised bed built this year by a neighbor whose services we won at the school's silent auction. There is a small rhodedendron there that will eventually be large enough to screen the trash cans that we'll put behind it.|
|Don't know what these are in the foreground, but we transplanted them from a friend's yard last spring and I'm thrilled they survived.|
|Another shot of the NEW walking path. Those are groundcovers we planted on the right - a brand called Stepables.|
|Ecinachea (purple coneflower) and impatiens.|
