(and in case you're not confused enough....)
Who's THIS guy in the yarrow bed????? lol Kind of adorable, isn't he?
Okay...so I went out this morning around 10 and took some pictures. I just can't help myself...Then I got busy and got the front yard mowed...and that wore me out. I came in and had water and lunch and feel a little better now. Of course, before I mowed I had to go on poop patrol and shovel up the excrement the dogs leave all around the front porch...that's a half hour job at least. Then the next hour and a half was spent mowing the front yard...the Irishman started mowing on Saturday and stopped when he ran out of gas, planning to finish the next day. Which, of course, was when he got sick. And naturally, he started in the back yard instead of the front, really thinking (I hope) that he was going to mow the entire thing. So the back got finished and the front not started...sigh....never mind....
Anyway...here are the garden pictures. :) (Click to biggify!!)
The deck flowers and herbs are hanging in there just fine.
