and will, I hope, have more interesting features as time goes on. Daylilies, catnip, irises, fragrant Asian lilies, lavender, and other stuff grows here. In the mulched area is a fig tree (bearing this year we hope) and an infant Azalea I bought last year at Canadian Tire. It had a nice show of magenta blossoms in the earlier Spring.
|Thornless Blackberry-- a gift from our dear deceased Pastor, Gordon Smedley. It bears prolifically.|
These delicious lemondrop-scented heritage Irises came from a jaunt

A little club-nosed strawberry in the front flowerbed, very close to where people walk.
I'll go bring it in for supper.
Thanks for looking! Sorry that there wasn't anything in the way of organic veggies in this self-indulgent foray!
