I think I’ve already posted our grapevine clubhouse – but wanted to add more pictures here. We’ve kind of taken the ‘wait and see’ approach with our new garden. And I have to say, it may’ve worked to our advantage. The grapevine is sprawling, we’ve made a patch for zucchini and tomatoes where forsythia use to be (we’ve now dragged the forsythia to the front yard) and honestly our quantity of bees and mosquitos has kind of diminished. Maybe due to having weeds and plants indigenous to our area? Not sure… but I’ve heard it’s good for pollinators to let some weeds grow and not over-coif the garden. I do know a woman rang our door bell and asked to photograph the white flowers in our front yard. I was nearly bowled over to find a brand new bush had cropped up almost overnight yielding about 12 – 8 inch white flowers. I think she was just as confused when I stepped out on our front step and said “where on earth did those come from?”
THAT’s how our garden grows, lately.
(as a side note, we JUST got some new plants from my in-laws so we should have some new garden pix soon!)
