I’m getting older, aren’t we all? And though I keep adding new garden beds, everything is done with an eye to easier upkeep. To that end, the “old” garden in the back has been going through plenty of upheaval . So much stuff! I wondered where all my time had gone last year, but when I looked at these old “befores” I saw where. There were lots of trees and shrubs removed and entire beds redone. It’s no wonder the veins in my legs blew……

I'm pretty happy with it now, but let me tell you, I can spend so many hours/days/weeks moving plants around until I'm happy with any given arrangement. I feel sorry for those little plants. I tend to talk to them when I'm moving them, making promises of more sun/shade/space/whatever they might want, but it doesn't make it any easier. It seems that every spring looks like a war zone
