Gardening is so much work! And I don't really know what I am doing...I just use the trial and error method of what works where. This year it seems things are finally filling in the way I have wanted them too....I heard once that the three year mark after planting is when things start to really reach full bloom and I sure think that is true.
Nothing is perfect around here of course...weeds grow quickly and this isn't the easiest year for me to pull them, although I am going to fight hard to not let those darn things win. If this baby doesn't come out with a stiff neck from being squished from me bending down to tend to flower beds (and of course pick up toys, shoes, socks, you name it inside) it will be small miracle.
(This year I am determined to taste some of my blackberries and raspberries...the past two years the kids have gotten to them before I've had a chance to try one!)
