I haven't posted many photos from the garden this year mostly because the garden has been kind of lame. And I am mostly responsible for it's lameness. Since hubby has been out of commission, the poor garden has relied on me for watering, weeding and general maintenance and upkeep. And I just don't have the time it needs. Sadly, the people must come first, then the cats, then the plants, then the gardens. You don't realize what's involved with something until you actually have to do it. Shawn would water the gardens daily, plant new flowers and maintain everything every year. Luckily, he is able to do this in the back yard with the potted plants and flowers. And of course, that's where things are thriving.
These are the morning glories ascending to well, their glory. Last year our morning glories were slaughtered. But this year, they are safely within our fence. No barbarian weed wacker operators can get to them. In a few weeks, the backyard will be graced with beautiful purple blooms every morning until it frosts.
