This raised flower bed area between the two screens is where I plant my tomatoes every year. It has great southern exposure. The dog also loves to lie in the sun here too. Last year I had to put up a little fence. Everyone thought it was for the rabbits, but no, it's for the dog. We'll see what happens this year too.
This is the back garden. I've already planted one rose bush. I'll have to adjust a couple other things this week to accomodate what I have in mind. But I am excited to get it all put together and the kids are excited to plant some flowers too. Z. brought home a sunflower plant from school and M. is bringing hers home in a week or so too. We might have to have a family gardening activity tonight.
