The view here is from the front porch. Some of you may remember the bottle we found out in the woods with green fern growing through a hole in the rusty cap. The fern has died and is now white. Last weekend we worked on a couple of flower beds. The fence gate (with no fence!) you see past the bottle is located in the middle of one of those beds. We had wild honeysuckle growing there and will train it to grow on the gate. We plan on adding a climbing rose later.
We chose the location for the flower beds in an area where old tree trunks were. We wanted to make it easier to mow without worrying about someone mowing over the stumps and messing up the lawnmower. It's going to work out well, I think. The azalea bushes were blooming their merry little hearts out last weekend. I hope there are still blooms when we go this weekend. The dogwoods were just about gone.
(This is my contribution to the 52 Photos Project, Gallery 51 I suppose a new gallery will start week after next. I hope to participate more consistently in the coming year.)
