Marvellous Mondays

Now that the weekend is over, I can post about gardening.  One of my biggest passions.  Obsessions actually.  Saturday was crazy.  Weeding, weeding and more weeding.  Planning a reorganization of my front gardens.  This is actually the view I had Saturday morning.  I grabbed a chair from the patio, a glass of ice water, pen and paper and sat on the boulevard (aka parking strip) under the tree and drew out what I wanted to accomplish.

It was pretty funny actually.  It's raining out, the sun is shining and I'm weeding.  And then Sunday, nothing.  I think my back got burnt on Saturday and my eating was horrendous so on Sunday I didn't feel much like gardening.  And I had lots of indoor things to do.

BTW - it's now Tuesday night.  My laptop ran out of juice before I was able to save pictures and post so here goes ....
This dates back to the Spring ... Barry's first lattice installation.  We have a purple clematis growing up it.

This is the south side of our front yard.  The fence is also covered with a purple clematis.  This was taken this Spring.  You can't see much of the soil any more.

This is the other side of the "fence" ... it's actually a garbage area.

This is a wild yarrow that planted itself one year.  It keeps coming back no matter how hard I try to kill it.

This is before the lattice went up on the back of the fence ... no honeysuckles either ...

And this is after .... although you can't really see much of it now ...
the hydrangea (directly behind my fair) is huge!

Well, that's it for me and my gardening story for today.  I expect Marvellous Mondays to be a regular feature.  Just a way to consistently share a rather important part of who I am.

Until later ....
