Pictures from garden area
We took some pictures of the garden area where I have been working for a few days. It was pretty messy and looks a lot better now.
This is the flat area where I am going to let the grass grow now.
These next two are the terraces. They were all broken down and I had to replace the wooden pieces and shore them up. They still need a few rocks under the boards. I put the soaker hoses there and the top one has zucchini planted. I need to do some more seeds later today.
I put flowers in the tin tub. I will put more pots or tubs of flowers in the grassy spot and at the bottom of the terraces.
Of course, I had a great helper.
Between the grassy area and the terraces are a lot of small hollyhocks that will grow this year and flower next year. I had to take care not to cut them down or walk all over them.
dr had to take a couple bridge shots.
The lower back yard with the apple trees
and a couple pictures of the rose hedge. This is just one end. It goes about 12 feet and is taller in some areas.
I still have lots of work to do but this is some progress to date. dooley

Dooley your yard is fantastic.Your windmill is just like mine.Your helper sure is a cutie.Your yard is so alive now and mine is dying from heat.I still want a bridge like yours.Thank you for the pictures.
I'd like a cute helper too! Your garden is lovely, you've certainly been busy. I like your planter arrangement, it looks so cool and fresh. That rose hedge is BIG! and good-looking too.
Lots of hard work; looks really smashing!
Oh that rose hedge is amazing Dooley. Twelve feet you say - that's an awful lot off roses!!!
Great job on the terrace work to you and your helper.
Your yard looks great! Wish I had a windmill and bridge like yours.
The roses were growing on a three foot fence when we moved here six years ago. I pruned it and watered it and dr put up a lot more fence for it to climb. Now it's really gone to town. I think this is about the most roses it's had. It divides the front from the storage area and does a very good job of hiding the mess. dooley
