A little peek

This post brought to you by our one week emergency supply of toilet paper

Please disregard the weeds, they are soon to be history and under a bunch of rock.
The Sensory Garden - empty big gulp cups are an important part of the sensory experience STRAWBERRIES! (June and ever bearing)
Hedge - all trimmed and swept up (note the broom and also the holes in the hedge where Superdog tried to avoid becoming 'it' in a game of tag)

Who knew chives could be so beautiful?

A little something I like to call "The Claw" - you wouldn't think I'd pruned the tar out off this thing 2 weeks ago, but I did (if only Edward Scissorhands lived here)

Another view of the Sensory Garden, see how much it's changed?

Everything is just about to burst with color, in another 3 weeks, it will look like a whole new garden. I can't wait.

Chives really are beautiful! All areas of the garden are coming along wonderfully. Can't wait to see the pics of everything in bloom.

Your yard is beautiful! I was hoping to get a garden in this year but it looks like it wasn't meant to be. Hopefully we can spend the summer getting one ready for next year.

You're garden is amazing! I wish I had a green thumb. The only thing I can grow is grass and even that is questionable.

Thanks for visiting An Island Life!

Mrs. Organic said...

lazy - you're growing something far more beautiful and time intensive - who needs food?

kailani - thank you

Wow! All of it looks so wonderful and green. I am jealous.
