    We were lucky that the previous owner put two fairly nice flower beds in the front of the house before we bought. The only downside is that the get very early sun and it’s over the house by about 11am so lack of sun really limits what we can plant there. I haven’t done much to them other than maintain what’s there and add mulch but I plan on sprucing them up this year. We’re also planting a veggie garden (finally) in the back that I’m excited about (as long as the raccoons stay out!)

      Oh, I can’t wait to hear all about your veggie garden adventures lol. This year we are very limited with our garden as I have so much going on plus renovations. It’s ok because we will raid the relatives gardens which are massive because they have MUCH larger plots of land. What are you growing?

      Good luck this year! If raccoons are an issue maybe hang some of your vegetables? Let’s us know how it goes

    I need to get out and clean things up out there yet. We have raised beds here as nothing would grow in back thanks to the big hill we are at the bottom of!! I’ll be walking along the top of the walls to get into the gardens again this year as the grass is still too wet to walk on. We have a few shrubs and mostly perennials here.i’ll have annuals in pots but the gardens are perennials. The Shasta daisy’s and the day lilies need dividing so I will need to find homes for any extras. The trick here is keeping the squirrels, raccoons and skunks out of the beds. Looks like the squirrels have been digging in the grass looking for lost nuts. And of course, another year of digging up that damn chameleon plant……

        Thanks Katrina, every year it’s late showing up and we think we got it but then it grows back. Once things dry up after the rain I’ll get out the shovel!!! I’m tempted to dig out the black eyed susans and the astilbe and relocate them, then get some plastic and solarize the whole section…..
