It is my favorite place to sit and watch the lake. Look how much the silver maple has grown too. Wow…

The other side of the air conditioner.

It seemed to me this area is not growing like the front, but after looking at the pics it is a big change. Most of my garden is just in it’s second year. It is fun to see it fill in.

Last year…. As you can see, I move things around quite a bit!

And this is all new this year…. this is today.

And this was in March. Wow. I can’t get over how much is coming up. There are several perennials like Black Eyed Susan's, Coreopsis and Blanket Flower starting to bloom this week.

I love to see before and after shots. Some of these pictures we’re blurry, but you get the idea!

We are having a party with fireworks on the lake. So I will be off-line most of the weekend. But I’m sure I will check my mail at least a couple times.

Have a safe and Happy 4th!
