I'm a messy gardener. Don't let the lovely macros I sometimes deliver to my photo blog fool you. Over-all, my garden is low-budget, low-maintenance and there are times when I talk to the weeds. :-)

Photos from Today

 I made a bouquet of peonies, roses, mint and ferns from the wooded areas of the yard.

It didn't occur to me to take a "before" shot but you should've seen the tangled mess and old oak leaves in this bed along the back of the house. At least I can now envision what I can plant there. I was thinking gladioli. I planted some for the first time along one of the other large beds. I want to see how they'll do. 

We put in tomato plants in with the flowers and herbs this year. The gladioli bulbs are to the left of the these. A week later, I've not seen anything grow up from the ground that indicates the glads will grow well.
