A much needed respite. I decided to work outside this morning. I had not even realized I hadn’t been enjoying my Garden. Last night reminded me how wonderful it is. My never ending list of stuff to do has kept me away from my patio.

Watching The Barefoot Garden Grow

The Barefoot Garden being one of them…I have completed the Garden, waiting for the Tomatoes to come in. Other than keeping up with watering,  I have made it pretty much maintenance free…Check out my easy to follow posts over @ The Barefoot Garden and follow us on Facebook to get current updates.

The long shot of the Yellow Honeysuckle. Last night while I was enjoying my dinner from Forno Antico one of our newest places in town, wonderful food, BTW, and wonderful people! I was reminded of what was right outside waiting for me to enjoy. Hummingbirds. A highlight in any Garden. Although the prize goes to Nancy over @ My Small Garden Paradise. Check out her Hummingbird tree pictured here at night… She even posts videos!

The window box has Red Petunias this year. Although I have plenty of flowers I put up the feeder. It is time to empty it for the summer. I will put it back up come Fall when the flowers start to fade.

And here we have the weeds. I placed that bucket there when I should have pulled them. They would have fit in the bucket at the time. Now they are so tall I will need a Wheelbarrow  to get them out to the Compost bin. At least they provide shelter for the critters. Behind that bucket is the turtle pond. Sad to say I lost the turtles to the horrible Winter ! Along with my hybrid Columbine. I have many plants starting at square one. Among them are Beauty Berries, Butterfly Bushes, the Smokebush out front, and my Fig

Here is my Tin-man. A little rusty. He hangs over a much neglected area in the Garden which is slated to become an even better Host Garden for Black Swallowtails. I love Raising Butterflies!

Last of the Garden…Love my Purple Smokebush!
