As usual with "garden survey" posts, there are a ton of photos (some of which are overlapping and repetitive) intended to give the closest thing possible to a virtual walk through the garden as it stood at a given point in time.
I've already been astounded by how completely (and quickly!) parts of the yard/garden have changed, over the past few years, and there's no knowing how things will change in years to come, so I try to take these "surveys" every month or two during the warmer seasons, to give a general idea of how things take shape from month to month and year to year.
In an attempt at honesty ;o), these are more "warts and all"-type photos than what I typically would take and share-- and because there tend to be so many of them, I don't usually edit them quite so carefully as I generally do. (Most of my edits are rough attempts to even out the exposure in the photos where bright light and deep shadow rub shoulders.) It takes me long enough to get them up here, as it is. If I waited for everything to look just so (weeded, no hoses on display, etc.), I'd never do it at all! Also, as in this instance, I may present them with little or no commentary.
Thanks for coming along for
(I took photos for May just today, so maybe I'll get them posted before the end of the week.)
And that's what it all looked like back in mid-April!
