Back garden view

We got a great soaking two nights ago .. now it is in jungle mode and I have so much 'fixing-up" to do with supporting and cutting back plants it is scary .. Sometimes I really do feel overwhelmed but I feel guilty because I have planned this garden with each and every plant in it .. so it is my wilderness to whip into shape ... how come I can't seem to whip myself into shape too ? haha .. My poor Karly Rose grass was beaten down to pathetic standards .. I really have to bind that girl's feet next !

Your gardens look absolutely beautiful. I know that has to be hard work but I'm sure worth it. Thanks for letting us take the trip.

Wow, things got really lush and grew up at your place while I was gone. I almost didn't make it in the gate. It all looks so nice and healthy. I'm going to scroll down and see what else I find. The kitties look good. Emma is just a doll. Missed ya. When I was gone for awhile, I thought about you often cause I wanted you to see my fall stuff when it's done. I was afraid I wasn't going to get to show it to ya.

Absolutely stunning. It looks like a lot of work, but a lot of 'nice' work, unlike, you know, chores and stuff... Paradise right in your own back yard. It can't get any better than that!

Hi Water Roots .. You are so right about what is nice work (even with the aching muscles thing) and what is ugh ! work .. this picture doesn't do it justice really .. things look bedraggled ? from the night of pouring rain .. it perks up from a watering .. but that was a drencher ! haha

Lovely photos. I dream of a garden that offers this much privacy... Looks like the ideal place to curl up with a good book!

Hi Kate .. these pictures are realy lack luster to what it looks like on a nice day .. yes ! it has taken a few years but finally a bit more privacy .. I hate having to see let alone hear neighbors all the time .. plants even do their share of noise dampening too : ) phew !
